What if you don't treat hamtser bite and bleeding don't stop?

you need to wash the bite well and then if you use something such as a non-stick dressing or cloth to apply pressure it should help it to stop bleeding. If possible it also helps to stop the bleeding if you can hold it up above the level of your heart - fairly easy if it's on your hand or arm! If it's only from a hamster you probably won't need stitches.


How do you treat being stabbed in the arm?

Call 911. If there's severe bleeding, hold direct pressure. If it continues to bleed and you are trained, use a tourniquet. If the weapon is still in the arm, try to stabilize it to prevent moving around. DO NOT remove any impaled object. The goals are to manage bleeding to prevent major blood loss and get to an emergency room to determine the need for surgery or get stitches.
