|Dotty||If my two fight, the one just gets quiet and sleeps, I always worry. It's too much for her emotionally. She is the sensitive one.|

i have never been hurt by canines and not been bleeding no lol thats why i was a bit suprised
anytime i have been bitten by canines of an animal i always would bleed
either the animal play/pretend/rough bite and never left a mark or bruise or they really did bite and always made me bleed and there was a lot of pain.
I just thought if a dog put any kind of pressure with its mouth it would have cause a blood flow
a lot of people even think when dogs fight like that they are not using their jaws they are just mouthing and not putting pressure
I remember being just touched by a rottie once the dog did it by mistake and it was enough to cause a bit of blood he didnt even do it on purpose and it was one of the most painful things i ever experienced in my life. It was even a mistake like the dog and me both kinda just ran into each other. It was also just a puppy.

|Angelina03||Of course there is injury. Haven't you ever been hurt and felt pain without blood? Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there. I'm sure they get bruised and sore, just like we do. With all that hair, how are you going to see a bruise any way, or even a little swelling? Also, bruises don't turn out immediately all the time. So, yeah, I believe they do get hurt, very hurt sometimes, even if they don't bleed.|

but we do agree on a lot of these nasty dog fights people pull the dogs apart and say oh well no dog was hurt, usually the fur is just covering up the nasty punctures caused
I think it is just a misconception that if there is no blood there is no injury? Then everyone goes back to playing ball.

I was bitten/scratched by my cat when her tail got caught in a drawer. Instead of pushing the drawer closed, I was pulling it...which made it worse! I had a sleeveless shirt and shorts on, and had over 100 punctures and scratches on my legs and arms. Then she pee'd on me! The Dr said the urine 'sterilized' the wounds or it would have been much worse. I was on antibiotics and the cat was quarantined. Very, very painful! Cats carry bacteria in their claws and mouth...way worse than dogs, I'm sure.

i see its when they rip and tear when the blood starts flowing?
ive seen a husky go home that was bleeeding and come back the next day bran new and perfect though? like nothing happend. The owner said he just washed the dog and it was okay.
When my cat or cats ever get bitten by another cat its really bad.

Punctures don't bleed much, if at all. That's why a puncture is serious to treat. They get infection easily because there is no blood to wash out the bacteria.
My dogs have punched me(poor targeting of a toy or whatever) and yes there is a bruise, even if there is not broken skin, it hurts!
