Either call a vet for some Styptic Powder OR grab a dry bar of soap and gently rake the nail across the soap bar to block the blood-flow OR fill the palm of your hand with either Baby Powder / Baking Soda or flour and dip the nail into the powder coating it really well until the bleeding stops.

The trick is - after you have stopped the bleeding - to keep the dog lying down or sitting down for a good period of time so that the blood pressure does not start the bleeding again (get Tilly to rest have have a calm cuddle for a while X).



Hope this helps.
