We can't bring her to a vet until the mroning. There are no emergency clinic in our area. I was driving 90km/hr down the highway and my 15lb dog jumped out the window. She ran about 15km home. She has a giant gash in her face, just above her jowels, and she has a very bloody toe (she lost her toenail) she has many bare spots with small cut. We put hydrogen peroxide on the cuts and don't know what else to do until morning. Any advice? Thank you so much
Hopefully you have visited a vet by now. It sounds like all of these injuries are superficial and some pain medication, antibiotics, and possibly laceration suturing will be prescribed/performed. This is much more of a common accident then people realize and you were lucky in this case. Often it results in fractured bones or even death. Invest in a dog harness that can be attached to the car seat belt, your dog deserves to be kept safe.
