Bleeding Ear Tip - Answered by Dr. Van Lienden

I just got home from work about an hour ago and all three dogs were sleeping peacefully. I went out in the yard with them for 10 minutes while they did their business. Upon entering, I notice drops of blood all over the floors, Ava shakes her head and now my diningroom looks like a murder scene . The very tip of Ava's ear is bleeding. I can't see any cuts or booboos of any sort. It's just the tip that's bleeding. I've applied pressure for 15 minutes but when I stopped, she shook her head and it started to bleed again. I applied more pressure, she shook, she bled yet again. I called the vet and was told to keep applying pressure and to bring her in if I thought it needed to be bandaged. I tried to bandage it myself but she'll shake which makes it bleed yet once more.

Anybody know what else it is I can do to stop it?
