Essential Oils: Clipping Dog's Nails Short Led To Much Bleeding
This product is for external use on dogs, cats and birds, and acts as a quick aid to stop bleeding caused by trimming beaks, clipping nails, claws and minor cuts.
To trim your dog’s nails, hold your dog’s toe firmly but gently. While calmly praising your dog and/or offering a treat, hold your clippers so that they will cut the nail from top to bottom, not side to side. Then insert a very small length (no more than 1/16 inch) of nail through the trimmer’s opening. Avoid cutting the quick, which is the pink area within each nail that contains nerves and blood vessels. Accidentally cutting the quick will cause pain and bleeding, probably causing your dog to yelp and struggle. This is a good time to stop trimming, but first apply styptic powder to the bleeding nail tip. Press the powder onto the nail tip to ensure that it sticks. If you don’t have styptic powder, dab the tip of the nail on a bar of soap or in a little flour or cornstarch. If bleeding continues for more than a few minutes, call your veterinarian.
For nail trimming, choose a time when your dog is relaxed or even sleepy, such as after a meal or a period of activity. Collect your clippers or grinder, some treats, and something to control bleeding in case it occurs (see below for suggestions and more on bleeding). If necessary, find an assistant to help you hold your dog. Ensure that other pets aren’t around and that your dog won’t be distracted by activity outside nearby windows.
