Mini Yes she's in a surgery now to remove the lump. 😢

Kalandra Cornstarch and similar products are unlikely to help with that type of wound. The area in question will bleed a lot when damaged. She is scratching at it because it hurts and will continue to do more and more damage to it. She definitely needs a veterinary visit as she will need pain medication at a minimum.

Mini Thanks all for the advice!!! Appreciate it

nikki Please get that poor baby to the vet first thing in the morning. Don't even wait for an appointment just show up and say you have an emergency. That needs to be treated now and is probably very painful.

Aj.t If you don’t have starch, flour might work, I’ve just never used it so I can’t claim it

Aj.t 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.

Mini Is there any ways to stop her bleeding? I tried applying pressure. But after awhile she starts scratching at her lump still it bleeds again...
