Hello, I was trying to cut the hairs around my dogs ear and he shook causing the tip of his ear to get cut off. Very small port around a 1/4” or even less it looks like. It is not bleeding. Do I need to do anything? He doesn’t look to be in pain but I know animals don’t always look to be in pain even if they are.

Hello,
Without being able to see this in person I will say that I usually prescribe these patients an antibiotics for just a few days and discuss wrapping the ear flap to the head (see “no flap ear wrap” online) to keep it from bleeding and allow it to heal faster. Please see your vet about this.
