I decided to take the e-collar off of Cammy since she'll be getting her stitches out tomorrow. Of course she started to scratch her face, finally having the freedom to do so. Well, her mouth is bleeding on each side!! She took off some skin on one side of her face. I put the collar back on, but what's the next step?? Thanks!!

One thing you can do is grind/file the nails smooth, or have the vet do it. Alot of people use dremels or the Pedicure(?) to actually keep the nails the correct length, this also allows you to smooth the nails so they aren't sharp. You can also buy toe nail covers that glue on and are designed to protect hardwood floors. Other options could include socks or boots for a few days and close supervision.
You can also ask for an anti-itch ointment to put on the recovering skin.
