Professional Groomers Styptic Powder for Pets Professional Groomers Styptic Powder is a first aid product for pets that will stop bleeding caused by trimming your pet’s (dog, cat, bird) claws and accidentally clipping too far back, which nicks the blood vessel in the claw (nail). Doing so can result in a rush of blood. Unlike human fingernails, dogs, cats and birds have blood vessels that run down the center of their thick claw. This styptic powder has been used for many years by Professional pet groomers all over the world. Cardinal, the company that makes it, has been in business since 1948. It is a company “Devoted to Pets, People & the Planet.” Professional Groomers Styptic Powder is manufactured in our Solar Powered factory in California, USA. We use local suppliers to reduce the carbon footprint of all our products.
