In this segment, we will examine how to address a head injury in pets, which can be quite challenging due to the difficulty of applying pressure and securing a bandage. COLLACLOT™, once again, offers an excellent solution to control bleeding in such situations.

When dealing with a head wound, it's crucial to be mindful of potential accompanying injuries. However, the immediate priority is to stop the bleeding and promptly get the animal to a veterinary professional. While other head injuries like concussions or fractures are serious, halting the bleeding is the most urgent concern.

For such injuries, COLLACLOT™ can be highly effective. Depending on the size of the wound, you might use the smaller COLLACLOT™, or tear a larger one in half and lay it across the wound. This versatile product can be layered on top of the wound, and direct pressure can be applied over it. Alternatively, you can use a dressing or gauze pad to cover and apply pressure to the COLLACLOT™.

The bleeding should stop within roughly three to five minutes. During this time, COLLACLOT™ interacts with the blood to not only stop the bleeding but also to encourage healing. Once the COLLACLOT™ is in place and the bleeding has ceased, you can secure it further with a cohesive bandage or any other available dressing. The COLLACLOT™ should adhere well to the wound due to its interaction with the blood.

With the wound taken care of temporarily, it's crucial to get the animal to the vet as quickly as possible. While COLLACLOT™ helps control the bleeding, professional veterinary intervention is necessary to address the full extent of the injury.
