Hi there, I have always cut my dogs nails myself, Very rarely (I think around 3 times) I have got the quick, I have had it happen with my mums dog Dilan and the bleeding was low and a pencil (I forgot what its called) I used stopped his blood straight away as it has with my dogs in the past.
Today though I cut Rosie's nails my Tri cavalier. They are white I so didn't mean to get the quick but I did it bled
and bled and I thought it was never ever gonna stop, the pencil did nothing..flour did nothing, tissue and pressure did nothing and it was coming out really fast and running down my arm and hands as we tried to stop it, After which seemed like forever and the blood flow at last started to slow I used the pencil and it seems to have stopped.
The blood at the start was too heavy for everything and I went through loads of kitchen towel.
I'm going to speak to her vet, I was wondering does it normally bleed really heavy and times before Ive been lucky? Or I'm wondering if It could be something like lacking in Vitamin K I think it is?
AS I said I will speak to the vet just wondered what your experiences were.
Many thanks xxx
