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.

Well, you also don't have fur to provide some protection. Rocco has hurt me really bad with his teeth without breaking skin. I have had huge bruises from him... In fact, just the other day, he bit me (accidentally), did not break skin; but about ten seconds later, there was red blood forming just beneath the skin. It hurt really bad too. I had to ice it for the rest of the evening. If I had fur, I would have never seen it, but I would have still felt it.

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.

pets4life 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 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.
This is very true. One of my cats bit my mom once. The break in the skin was tiny; but it got infected from the bacteria in the cat's mouth. My mother ended up having a huge problem. The bite was on the hand and her whole arm swelled up, red. It was pretty scary actually. It took a while to heal.

onyx'girl 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!
