My 13 year- old dog was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma (a type of cancer in the mouth). One night as I fell asleep on the sofa next to her, I woke up suddenly and found that she had a puddle of blood all round her mouth area. She was a mid-sized dog and with blood forming a circumference of a 6 inch puddle, the sight was worrying. I calmed myself first and look at the clock - it was close to midnight. Her regular vet would be closed at that time. I recall the School's protocol about stopping bleeding so I made a paste from alfalfa and enzymes and pressed it against her upper palate at the source of the bleeding. It arrested the bleeding! Both my dog and I dozed off after the ordeal. Then, I woke up again and found a second puddle after about an hour! I did the same and the bleeding stopped! So I did a 3rd application just to play it safe and ther was no more bleeding after that.
The next morning I took her to the vet just to ensure everything is ok. The vet said cells around the tumour are usually blood-rich and very tender and a loose tooth was the reason for the bleeding. Am sharing this in the hope that it might help some pets/pet parents!
