If possible, flush the injury immediately with running cool water over the burned area. In order to decrease the inflammatory reaction to the burn injury, hold an ice pack (crushed ice and water mix) wrapped in a soft towel gently against the affected area.

Seek veterinary attention immediately. Some burns can actually damage blood supply to the skin, and several days later the skin will turn a dark, dry color. These damaged areas can become infected and may require surgery to repair devitalized tissue.
