BROKEN OR BLEEDING NAIL BROKEN NAIL If the nail is not bleeding and is causing the dog or cat pain because it is in the way then it needs to be removed. Only remove it yourself it is loose and you feel comfortable doing so. You may need to have someone help you hold your pet or muzzle your dog. Grasp the broken nail with a pair of pliers and tug. If it does not come away easily then seek veterinary help. BLEEDING NAIL This can happen if your dog or cat tears the nail or if you have trimmed the nail too short. * Restrain your pet and elevate the affected limb above the body if possible by rolling your pet onto its back. * Apply a clean cloth against the nail. Cotton wool can be used in this circumstance as the fine fibres aid clotting. * An alternative is to drag the affected nail over a bar of soap to clog the nail and then apply the cloth to the nail. * Apply pressure for at least 5 minutes. Nails tend to bleed for long periods of time. Do not remove the pad until bleeding stops. * Apply a bandage if the nail tends to start bleeding as soon as the pad is removed or your pet is licking the paw excessively. * If bleeding does not stop in 15 minutes transport to your veterinarian. Continued bleeding may indicate a bleeding disorder and your pet may be in serious trouble. * There are also commercial products you can buy - I know of one called Qwik Stop that will halt the blood flow quickly. Alternatively, you can use cornstarch which will work too.

Asked in Guinea Pigs
Your guinea pig is bleeding and you are not sure if its bleeding from the nail or skin?
Did something happen? It is most probably bleeding from the nail unless the nail is looks perfectly fine. They have a blood quick in their nails so, if it gets hurt and the nail is broken or hurt, that is where they are bleeding from. Clean it off with a wipe if you can. You can cover it in baby powder and the bleeding will stop. Just watch your guinea pig and make sure that it isn't limping or yelling out in pain. If it is, then you should take it to a vet as it might be infected.

What do you put on dog's toenails if they're cut too short?
Flour or corn starch will stop the bleeding. Put a small amount on the nail and apply pressure. If this does not stop the bleeding, contact your vet. Styptic powder, gel, liquid, or a styptic pencil can be used to stop bleeding when a nail is quicked. It can be purchased at most pet stores. Styptic pencils can be found in stores in the area where you find shaving supplies as they are used to stop bleeding when you nick yourself shaving.
