The longer you let your dog's nails (for example) grow, the further down toward the tip of the nail the quick will extend. This means that you must start out by taking off little nips of the nails, letting the quick recede, nip off more a week later and so on. If you cut the nail too short, it will bleed and cause your pet pain.
If this does occur, MediStyp has a dual function: to stop the bleeding AND the pain of cutting the nail's quick. It can also be used on docked tails and minor cuts and scratches.
I would tell you to follow the instructions on the container; but the printing is so small that I had to use a magnifying glass to see them. It would have been helpful for the manufacturer to include a little pamphlet. You are better off reading the directions on this page.
MediStyp will also help prevent infection. It is not meant for major injuries such as cuts or burns.
Application is messy because it's a powder. If it were a cream or in the form of a styptic pencil, it would be a much cleaner operation. I suggest following the teeny instructions on the jar which state that you can put the dog/cat's nail into the jar to coat the nail fully. This makes much more sense and is less messy. You can also take a damp, clean cotton swab or cloth, dip it into the jar and then apply the solution to the pet's nail.

This product works very well to stem the flow of blood; and with the Benzocaine added to the formula, it keeps your pet from being in pain from the nail wound.
A word of warning, though: while it kept the bloodshed to a minimum on the dog's part, it caused that first drop of blood to fuse firmly to my skin. Plan on washing your hands with a scrub brush or an abrasive hand cleaner after you use this.
This powder works fast! I dipped my dog's paw in the container, held it there for a couple of seconds and the bleeding was over. And she didn't spend time licking the wound as she always does so I'm hopeful that the Benzoczaine really works to dull any pain. I had previously tried the gel w/benzoczaine and it's terribly ineffective. This is the stuff you want.
