What a fun place to stop to get our pup some treats in NC's friendliest dog town!!! We met the owners Beth & Don at a local brewery and instantly connected over our love for dogs (specifically our Blue Heelers!). After chatting with them over drinks, we quickly realized their passion for their small business and for the local community, as Asheville natives themselves. We couldn't wait to take our guy to their shop to pick out some treats. He was excited to take his "Smores" camping and he has lots of natural, gourmet treats waiting for him to enjoy when he gets home to FL! All their staff was extremely welcoming not only to our dog, but all the other dogs (and humans) in the store. As Asheville native themselves, Beth & Don had so many great recommendations for exploring other parts of town. Must stop for all dog lovers and inquiring travelers!!!
Styptic Powder: If you cut the nail too short, it will bleed. Even when you do your best to avoid this, it can happen from time to time. The bleeding will eventually stop if pressure is applied, but it can be hard to hold your dog's paw still for several minutes. Styptic powder can stop the bleeding very quickly and it fairly easy to apply. A common brand name is "Kwik Stop"
5 Easy Ways To Stop A Dog's Bleeding Nail -
What To Do If You Trim Your Pup's Nails A Little Too Short - BarkPost
Dog nail bleeding can be painful for your pet, since there aremajor blood vessels that run into his feet. The bleeding occurs when you cut the dog's nail too closely, called cutting the quick, or the soft tissue underneath the toenail. This bleeding will usually stop on its own, but you can help it stop more quickly with these home methods.If you accidentally cut into the quick, immediately compress the wound for at least two minutes with a clean cloth or paper towel. If the bleeding is minor, try rubbing a bar of clean, scent-free soap over it. If the bleeding is steady, wrapping ice within the compressed cloth or paper towel will help lessen the blood flow. Next cup your hand and pour some styptic powder or cornstarch (with or without baking soda) into the palm. Gently dip the dog’s bleeding nail into the powder, repeating if the bleeding doesn’t come to an immediate stop. Don’t wipe away the blood before dipping because it will aid coagulation. Once bleeding does cease, continue to compress the wound with a paper towel or cloth, being cautious not to squeeze the paw. Try to keep the dog off his feet for at least 30 minutes. Dog toenails are prone to bleeding profusely if cut at the quick, which is the soft tissue in your dog's toenail. Though this is painful, bleeding will often stop on its own if left for a few minutes. However, there are also many things you can do to ensure the bleeding stops as quickly as possible.White and tan colored nails are considered by many to be easier to trim. If you have a dog with white feet and white nails, consider yourself lucky! In younger dogs with white nails, the quick is generally easy to see from the side of the nail. Trim a little at a time, looking both at the side of the nail and at the cut surface. In white nails, the cut surface will turn pink just before reaching the quick. This is where you should stop. See the slide show below to see the correct placement of the clippers and what the nail should look like when trimmed correctly.
