Default Nail cut too deep

OK, I am a bad man. I was cutting Chuy's nails, and I don't know how I did it, but I went too deep on one. The problem is, I only cut it part way off, and so the nail is somewhat attached, and it bled just a bit.

What should I do at this point ? Do I leave it to let it heal on it's own ?

I think I would finish to cut the nail evenif it's going to bleed cos he could hurt himself even more.He could tear it totally off and then you'll need the vet.Don't feel bad,I did it,not that long ago.L

Yes I sometimes miss and it seems to bleed forever! Fortunately there is no permanent damage done.

I used to always keep a styptic pencil and use it to stop the bleeding.

A partially attached piece of nail can snag and create a much worse problem, so I would finish cutting the nail. A styptic pencil, styptic powder, or a little flour (in a pinch) will stop the bleeding. It is so easy to quick a nail. One reason I like the dremel is that I don't seem to quick the nails anywhere near as much as with the clippers.

We use a product, I believe is called Quick Stop, we put that on Shelby's nails if they bleed. It is a yellow powder substance, they sell it at all the pet supply stores by the grooming supplies. We've used it on all our dogs.

My dad did this on our golden as a puppy. He cut all the way into the vein though, and our floor got covered with blood. Just cut it the rest off, if it didn't bleed much halfway, it's probably not going to be that bad.

After the incident with out golden I just walk them on the road to wear their nails down. Cats may be easy, but I can't imagie making a mistake on a black nail of a dog again :x

There is a technique for figuring out where the quick begins on a dark nail. I think it will require a pic to describe, and my poor old camera may not be up to the task. Also, I don't know if this applies to breeds other than Greyhounds. I didn't learn about it until after I was finished with Weims.

Anyway, there is a v-shaped groove that starts at the tip of the nail, on the bottom side of the nail, and narrows to a point part way up the nail. Where the groove ends is where the quick begins. You can safely trim up to that point, at least on a Grey.

It's just like having bandaids around for your kids, quick stop is an excellent product.
