NAIL CARE ANATOMY

A dog with long nails often has a long ‘quick’ – the blood and nerve supply within the nail. If the nails are filed too much at the start, they may bleed. This is common with any nail trimming tool. This is normal and is a sign to stop the filing.  Clean the dog’s nails and apply either Styptic powder (a natural coagulant which stops the bleeding), cornstarch or baking soda.
