Kaloyan!

What a brilliant question! I am not able to find anything in dogs but this paper in the human literature:

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30956473/

Seems that it was used in this study topically in the abdomen. I am not sure how extensively this is practiced. In Greyhounds that are bleeding I would probably still use IV in most cases.

I will ask some colleagues and see if they have ever used it topically in this way!
