Stop Bleeding of Knicked Vein

Bronze Feedback Medal for All Time! 147 Feedbacks

It's amazing how many people nick the vein in their ankle while scratching themselves and then can't stop the bleeding. That happened to me too. I was panic strickened and not able to stop it by applying direct pressure (there was a lot of blood gushing out). I had visions of having to rush to the ER for help I remembered what I do for my dogs. I got the "quick stop powder" I use when I cut their nails and nick their "quick". I sprinkled the powder on the nick. It burned for a second or two and then stopped bleeding.


My suggestion to anyone whether they own a pet or not is this. Go to a pet store and buy this powder, keep it in your first aid kit or medicine cabinet. Better safe then sorry and a lot cheaper than a ER bill.

Thanks for your post. I have been wracking my brain trying to remember what the powder was called. Would be great to go in a first aid kit too.

I have never tried it but I have heard that black pepper will help stop the bleeding. If you cut yourself, wash the wound and then put black pepper on it to stop the bleeding.

I'm on Warfarin, a blood thinner for a Hereditary Blood Clotting Disease. I keep Quick Stop for when I trim my dogs nails just in case I trim any too short. I have trouble stopping my bleeding sometimes and blood thinners makes my skin thin too. From now on I'm going to use Quick Stop on my arms and other places I get scratched or cut, after I get my Dr.'s ok.


It was made for humans to start with. I just think that the Benzocaine percentage should be more. I've seen dog's whose nails were trimmed too short and they yelp and cry from the pain, I also think it would be good for humans pain on cuts too, but the percentage is way too low.
