I cut Cara's quick when I was trimming her nails earlier. It's the first time I've ever quicked her and I was surprised by how much it bled, but managed to stop the bleeding and covered it to stop her licking at it and allow a proper clot to form. After about an hour I took the bandage off to check on it and it looked fine so I left it off, but when OH took her for a walk it opened up again. The bleeding has stopped again and the paw is clean and bandaged up. Do you think she needs to go to the vet if the bleeding has stopped? I'll be investing in a styptic pencil or powder before I next trim her nails, and will be more careful when she squirms next time of course. She doesn't seem to bothered by it and let me finish the nails on the other paw, so she can't be that trumatised. Are the vets likely to do anything I haven't? How long do I need to rest her paw to stop it from bleeding again? I've clipped her claws many times before and never had any problems at all. I feel terrible, she doesn't seem to be in pain with it and is walking, running jumping etc normally, but I can't shake the feeling that I've injured her.
