I accidentally cut the quick on one of Hector's nails

Post by Zo on Sun Mar 17, 2013 9:20 pm

I guess there's a first time for everything! It didn't bleed too much, I think it's stopped now, but I didn't know if I should do anything like put some antiseptic cream on it?

Here's a pic:

What you need is a 'Styptic Pencil' and you dab the end of the nail with it and it stops the bleeding.

http://www.vetuk.co.uk/veterinary-supplies-wound-care-products-c-141_169/vet-caustic-silver-nitrate-styptic-pencil-p-1041

or if you go to Pets at Home they sell 'Blood Stop' swabs which are made to stop bleeding from cut's and nails.

Worth having in.

A dab of what we call corn starch will work too. I think you call it something else there. it's a fine white powder that you use to thicken gravies and puddings.

It only bled for about a minute, then it dried up. I might get some of the powder to pop on it just so it doesn't get infected. It's what I call his 'thumb' nail, or I guess the bunny equivalent of a dewclaw that I cut, so at least it isn't in contact with anything.

Oh of course a Styptic pencil completely forgot them! Embarassed
Their really good I always make sure I have one Thumbs Up
I'm sure he's fine as long as it has stopped bleeding.
By the look of the photo It doesn't look like you've taken much off.
