Customer Question

Hi, have just typed this but my internet decided to disappear. So, my dog Treacle has just been bitten on the ear by another dog just over an hour ago. The ear is nicked on both inner and outer sides. I have washed it in salt water and bathed it in Pevidine. However it is still bleeding just a little, do I need to take her to an out of hours vet, or do you think she will be OK overnight? Many thanks for any advice. Janet
