    DefaultBleeding Nail...HELP!!

    So we cut one of Fergus' nails to short and now we have blood everywhere and can't get it to stop. We did the flour thing, but that doesn't seem to be working. Anyone have any other suggestions????

    Bandage for a while. Allow it to clot, and clean it up in a couple of hours.

    Poor you; I had that happen several weeks ago...we sat for 3 hours!!
    I talked to my vet that night and they told me to put sit with him and put pressure on it. I even put his foot in a box of cornstarch. Styptic powder didn't even work. Just apply hard pressure for about 20 minutes and you should get it to stop.

    I heard that baking powder also works if you don't have styptic.

    Once you get the bleeding to stop, if he runs around again, it may start up. This is what happened to Zoe. She bled, was okay, and the next day a the beach, she bled again. But after that, she was fine.

    Amazing that there's so much blood.

    Liquid Bandage. We used it on Honey Bear when she tore a toenail

    Dig the nail into a bar of soap.
