I thought I would take the time this evening to cut the girls nails before we leave tomorrow. Not sure what happened...I usually just cut the tips but on Abby's last nail I cut the quick. She yelped a little then I see the blood. Of course before I could get the styptic powder out she has run across the carpet & on the white kitchen floor....which now looks like a mash unit. Why do I even bother.? I feel so bad. I have not done that for years. Of course tonight we had a bad storm & it is raining so she comes back in & it started bleeding again. Hopefully it will be better by morning. Our vet is not open on Saturdays but if she has problems down at the beach there are several vets available.
Oh & due to the storm our power was out for 3 1/2 hours. Boy....I really do need this vacation.
Poor Abby and poor you! Hope everything looks better in the morning. Enjoy your vacation
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am

Aw, Georgie. Just mush that toe-tip up for a while. She'll be fine.
I quicked Megan a few months ago... my compliant, "Oh please clip ALL my nails!" girl and I thought we both would have to go into therapy over it
We both recovered from the shock in about, oh, 20 minutes or so.

Well, you know when it rains, it pours!
I hope you really have a great vacation and get a chance to sit back, have a glass of wine, and watch the sunrise on the beach.
Aww, she'll recover just fine, Im sure! Have a great time on vacay! Lots o pics!

Yikes! If you have problems with it bleeding again, just take a q-tip, get it a little wet, dip it in the styptic powder and push it against the nail with a lot of pressure. Might have to do it a couple times but the pressure really helps.
Thanks everyone. She is fine this morning. But I did forget to mention yesterday morning I banged my toe in the bathroom & now it is swollen & purple. I hope this is the end of these issues. See you next week.
Poor Abby. Enjoy your vacation.
