quick blood stopper gel

so today I ordered some quick blood stopper get, which is kind of like qwik stop except its a gel so that it stops the bleeding immediately. i decided to get this because I once had a budgie nip another budgie on her foot, right where her toe bends and it took me and the closest(avian vet is an hour away) vet a half hour to stop the bleeding because whenever she bent her toe it started again. i thought itd be a useful tool to add to my bird first aid kit.

Like styptic powder or something?
When Minnie was bleeding, I just went straight to the vet. I was freaking out.

I would do that too Abby but my avian vet is an hour drive which means the bird would bleed for an hour, unfortunately avian vets can be scarce

Yeah thats what I thought too Daisy it would be good for nails because some birds wont hold stil while you apply pressure. You can search it with that name on the internet

Then it's wonderful you have that stuff. I need it anyways, in case something happens at a crazy time, like in the middle of the night or on a holiday. It stinks that the vet is so far away.

This is fantastic to have on hand for toenail bleeds. Just be sure not to apply it to a bird's body for bleeding. For that you want to use Corn Starch. Corn Starch works great on toenails too for birds and dogs.

I've seen the gel - we used it at the shop for beak injuries, when nothing else worked, because it stuck better. I haven't tried it on toes. And yes, for any injury on skin, corn starch, flour, and pressure are best, the styptic will burn their skin.

Do you find it works better on toe nails than the powder?
