How To Stop Your Pet's Nail Bleed

Regardless if your trimming a pet's nails or they damaged it playing, nail bleeds happen, and it's best to be prepared with how to react.

The Quick is a blood vessel located in each nail. If cut it will bleed and is painful for your pet.

Household Products That Stop The Bleeding:
  • Flour
  • Corn Starch
  • Johnson's Baby Powder
  • Chapstick
  • Ivory Soap
  • Neosporin
Apply the product and use something to keep pressure on the area while keeping it sterile.

Cotton Q-Tips work well to apply sterile pressure with.

A product called 'Quik Stop' is available at your local vet or pet store. This product will work best to stop the bleeding.

Apply a product listed and pressure to the bleeding. If it does not start to subside after five minutes call your veterinarian to make an emergency appointment. 

Sometimes a pet can damage the nail beyond repair. Surgical removal of part or the entirety of the nail is required.
