    Kwik Stop Styptic Powder

    Every dog owner has been in that situation where the dog got a cut, or you trimmed their nails back too far, and they started bleeding. Even the smallest cut can turn into a bloody mess. That is why we recommend having Kwik Stop Styptic Powder on hand and in every dog owner’s dog first aid kit. Kwik Stop Styptic Powder by Miracle Care is even safe for use on humans if you are ever in a scenario in which you need to stop a cut fast.

    How does Kwik Stop Styptic Powder Work?

    Kwik Stop Styptic Powder for Pets works by stopping minor bleeding, while also numbing the pain with the addition of benzocaine. Styptic powders work as an anti-hemorrhagic agent that causes contracting tissue to seal injured blood vessels. Its active ingredients include Ferric Sulfate, Aluminum Chloride, Diatomite, Bentonite, Copper Sulfate, Ammonium Chloride, and Benzocaine. All you have to do is apply to your pet's wound for 5-10 seconds. It is recommending using a Q-tip or cotton ball, but just rubbing it on for your finger will work in a pinch.

    Lion Country Supply Staff Reviews of Kwik Stop Styptic Powder:

    “This is without a doubt the best product we have ever used at home for our dog nail-trimming chores. Keeping the nails at reasonable length is a very important part of canine foot care and health. This product is far better than any of the styptic liquids we used in the past. When we are trimming our dogs' nails and accidentally get too close to the vein, we get the Kwik-Stop out and apply it immediately.”

    – 2008 Review by the late Jack Sankey, LCS Telephone Specialist

    “Don't know about your birds, but ruff grouse in Pennsylvania tends to inhabit the thickest, nastiest, thorniest cover possible. Therefore you and your dog’s experience a lot of thorn caused bleeders. It's remarkable how profusely you and your dog's ears can bleed. The dogs don't seem to mind, but I'm not as stoic! That's why I always carry Lion Country Supply's Kwik Stop Styptic Powder when grouse hunting.

    The half-ounce tube fits easily and unobtrusively into any pocket and stops the bleeding fast. And yes, I use it on myself, as well as the dogs. The manufacturer recommends a moistened Q-tip for application, but in the field, I find a finger and some spit works just fine. It also works great to stop the bleeding when you accidentally over clip your dog’s nails.

    Don't let the thorns spoil your hunt. Carry Kwik Stop Styptic Powder!”

    – 2013 Review by John Sarver, LCS Warehouse Manager


    When it comes to quickly stopping bleeding, there is no better product than the Kwik Stop Styptic Powder. We truly recommend this product for every dog owner’s first aid kit. It is important to remember though that this is only meant to stop bleeding and does not contain any antibacterial or healing promoting properties. For cleaning and antibacterial protection, we recommend products like the Vetericyn Plus Wound and Skin Care and similar products that can be found on our Dog First Aid collection page.
