Luckily burns are rare but if you think your animal has been burned take the animal to the veterinarian immediately. Damage from burns sometimes does not show up right away so it is best to have the pet checked for possible burns immediately.
These can occur when an animal bites into an electric cord- THESE CAN BE VERY SERIOUS AND REQUIRE IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION. These animals can develop fluid in the lungs causing breathing difficulties. This is often a life- threatening emergency and requires medical treatment.
Wash the area with copious amounts of cool water. Check the skin for any signs of redness, irritation or discoloration. Note the name of the chemical involved in the burn, and contact a veterinarian for advice immediately.
