Did the vet check for foreign bodies embedded in the wound? Maybe whatever he punctured himself on is still in there? If not, maybe it can be cauterized to stop it from bleeding. I think a 2nd trip to the vet is in order if it's bleeding that much. Some types of wounds will seep a bit but if it's coming out like a fountain he should go back to the vet.
Beware of Mushers...They will suck you into their addiction!

If your dog thinks you're the best, don't seek a second opinion!

If the wound is coming out like a fountain, and the meds given to your dog for clotting does not work, I would suggest you go back to your vet. That is quite a lot of blood if it is coming out like that.
