It's very easy to accidentally clip into the "quick" of a dog's nails when trimming them. This is especially true when the nails are dark. If you cut into the quick and there is bleeding, it's a good idea to use some styptic powder, which will aid in clotting.
• Dip your finger into the powder and gently dab it onto the tip of the nail. Styptic powder can be obtained at most pet stores in the grooming section.
• If you are caught without any powder you can try using a little cornstarch or flour in the same manner.
