Usually see small or large puncture wounds on body. Sometimes small wounds can actually be quite deep.
Use caution in approaching injured stressed animals—even nice animals can become aggressive or defensive esp. after a bite injury. Muzzle or have someone restrain the head. Examine the entire animal for bleeding, lacerations or pain. If you cannot reach a veterinarian quickly, flush each wound with saline (or clean water). Wrap large wounds as best you can, small wounds can be left uncovered. Do NOT use tourniquets to stop bleeding—use firm pressure if needed.

Shivering (excessive, relentless), lethargy, weakness, inability to use limbs.
Wrap your pet in warm (woolen) and dry blankets or clothing. DO NOT rub your pet with the blankets, this can damage cold tissue and make frostbite worse. Raise body temp over the course of 20 minutes. Hot water bottles (wrapped in towels to avoid direct contact with skin) can be used under blankets to increase pet’s temp. Normal temp for dogs is 100 to 102.5. Do NOT use electric heat in any form!! Seek immediate Veterinary care.
