Last week, Savannah and I were on a walk when her ear got hung up in a rose bush. She pulled free before I could extricate her, so she now sports a scar where a thorn scratched her. Even though the scratch was short, it was deep and since it was on an ear, it bled a LOT. Also since it was an ear (and it was raining), she kept shaking her head spraying water and blood ev-er-y-where.

I had some styptic powder on hand, but neither the cotton swab applicator or the powder was much help. The next day, I was on a farm and the ear opened up again with just as much bleeding as the day before. The farmer had some Wonder Powder (made for horses - so I don't know about repeat use on a V) that he sprayed on the her ear. Poof - the clotting occurred.

So to turn a long story into a short question, for anyone who takes their V through the brush, what do you use on their scratches and gashes?

We've only ever used polysporin, but not til we get home.
Mind you he's never really kept bleeding for a long period of time.
