Hey there! They do sell commercial pet safe coagulant powders, but another option would be to use a ^teeny^ tiny amount of cornstarch if you have any and dab it on the open part of her wound. Unfortunately due to its location, she’s gonna come into contact with it a lot, but if you do choose to go this route monitor her closely for a few minutes to make sure she’s not trying to lick it off. Cornstarch is not harmful if ingested in very small amounts but also doesn’t have any benefits so limit the amount you use.
