I just trimmed my silkies nails and accidentally cut back too far on two toes. What do I do? There was definite blood and knowing what we do with cat's nails that are trimmed back too much I would have to think I would need to do something similar? is there a particular product I need to use?

thanks!!

Then before you start next time get some quick-stop powder (like for dog nails) to have on hand. (Wonder Dust works also.)

Hold the bird and dip the toe into a small bowl or plate of corn starch, just regular powder corn starch from your kitchen. It helps stem the bleeding. Since it's close to bedtime, I bet it will roost all night and be better by morning.
