In this segment, we're going to examine how to handle bleeding claws, a common issue that can occur when a claw is cut too short, or when a pet like a dog or cat inadvertently injures its claw. Given the structure of the claw, bleeding can be quite severe, as there's not much to naturally halt the blood flow. This is where COLLACLOT™ comes into play, not only staunching the bleeding but also promoting healing.

Applying COLLACLOT™ to a damaged or overly-trimmed claw can swiftly cease the bleeding and encourage healing. Bandaging a claw can be challenging, and pets tend to reopen the wound while moving around. COLLACLOT™ provides a straightforward solution to this issue.

If you have a piece of COLLACLOT™, you don't need to use the entire packet for a claw injury. You can simply tear off a small piece. Bear in mind that once the packet is opened, the product is no longer sterile, but you can still continue to use it. This is especially useful for dog groomers, for whom claw injuries may be a frequent occurrence.

To stop the bleeding, apply the piece of COLLACLOT™ onto the affected claw and hold it in place. You can do this manually or with a dressing. Hold it over the wound temporarily until the bleeding stops.

The bleed should halt within three to five minutes. COLLACLOT™ adheres well to the wound, and given its entirely collagen composition, it poses no harm if a pet accidentally ingests it. After the application, you can proceed with grooming, but keep a watchful eye on the wound. If the bleeding persists, ensure the COLLACLOT™ is correctly applied, as it's designed to effectively stop the bleeding.

This quick-fix method for minor claw injuries can similarly be applied to minor cuts on the body, using COLLACLOT™ to halt bleeding and initiate healing.
