How to stop nails bleeding
If you have trimmed your pet’s nails to the quick, they may start to bleed. To help stem the flow of bleeding you can:
- Firmly press the nail into a bar of soap or candle wax. This will form a plug at the end of the nail.
- Potassium Permanganate (Condies Crystals) can also be used – dampen the tip of a cotton bud, dip into your jar until there is a small layer of crystals over the tip, then apply firm pressure with the cotton bud tip to the bleeding nail
