A common place for a dog to be injured is the ear. The dog can get it caught on something or stick its head through a hole in the fence and quite easily tear the ear. Often, this can leave a scar. However, a bigger problem is bleeding. The blood may even run down into the ear and cause severe damage and cause the dog to shake its head rapidly. To stop bleeding and make the dog more comfortable on the transfer to the vet, you may need to put a dressing on. Gently lay the dog's ear down and run the bandage gently under and around the head. Do not wrap too tightly or you may cut off the dog's ability to breathe. Try to leave the other ear up so the dog still has hearing. When the bandage is around the head, tie the ends of the dressings in a gentle knot. Keep talking to your dog, calming it down as much as possible.
