Default Any ideas how to stop nail bleeding??

My 9 week old sheltie puppy is growing very quickly and needs his nails trimmed at least once a week, sometimes more. Yesterday while I was cutting them I accidentaly cut too far (he has black nails so it's impossible to see the quick) and the nail bled forever! It didn't seem to hurt him at all, but it would not quit bleeding! I know you can buy powder for this at the store, but it is very expensive. Does anyone else know something that will stop the bleeding that is not as costly??

Well remember if you get the styptik powder, spend maybe $6 dollars on it (not sure how much it is there) you will just end up putting it in the cabienet until you need it. That one bottle will probably last for a long time since I doubt your going to need it a lot unless you are constantly cutting your pups quick. So I'd suggest just buying the powder.

Definatly, you wont use it that often so it will really last

in a pinch you can use corn starch but it's pretty messy. and your dog will probably lick it off and cause an even bigger mess. I tried using flour on my dog's quick in an emergency once ... and well... i had flour everywhere by the time it finally stopped bleeding.

Hmmm..okay. The powder is a lot more expensive here...like 15.00-24.00 but it was for a huge bottle of it. I will look around and see if I can find anything smaller. Thanks everyone!

Corn starch works good until you can get the quick stop.

cyenne pepper (ground red pepper) works also. It clots the blood.
