a match. get the tip end of a match and stick it to the spot that is bleeding. it works like a charm.

Before or after lighting it? I'm asking seriously here...is it the sulfur on the tip that does it?

I've use alum powder before, it constricts the quick so it stops bleeding.

I personally would not recommend using cayenne pepper for bleeding as it tends to burn. I use cayenne as a chew deterrent on the picnic tables at work and have gotten in on a nail scratch before and it didn't feel good at all.

before lighting it. you just roll the tip across the bleeding part of the nail. it basically cauderizes (sp?) the quick and it stops right away. it's also a good quick fix if your dog has a small cut that's bleeding. vet's use them on dewclaw removals alot to avoid stiches in puppies.

Cauterizing is usually used when talking about stopping bleeding through a heat source, you're essentially searing the wound closed.

Since you say the match is unlit, I'm going to go with the assumption that it's a chemical property in the tip that does it.

yeah, something to do with the sulphur...i don't remember exactly...i just know it works. i know cauderizing has to do with heat, but the match works along those lines is all i was saying.

Edit:Cauterize for best results:
Cauterizing the nail will absolutely stop the bleeding. It will also not leave a clot that could be knocked off. Using a match stick lite the match and allow it to burn for a couple of seconds, blow it out and immediately press it firmly to the tip of the nail. Hold it there until the match cools. The tip of the nail should be charred, if not repeat the process.

Yes, it says light the match....so i forgot a small step... at least i looked it up to make sure! LOL it does work though.

I just always hold pressure - but I've never had luck with the Kwik Stop. Cold water will also work if you can get your dog to be calm for that long.

I have a little Styptic Pencil ... it's actually supposed to be used in case you cut yourself shaving. But nobody ever used it ... so it's now a nail bleeder stopper. Thankfully, I've yet to have to use it ... nice to know it's there though.

If you are in a pinch a little drop of finger nail glue works wonderful.
