Styptic powder was originally made for humans.

I have a styptic pencil that specifies it's for shaving nicks.

YES and believe me it WRECKS!!!! Stings big-time! Feel guilty now for using it on my hounds whenever I caught the quick clipping claws.....

Not quite what you are asking, but I find culinary cornflour* an effective styptic for hounds and humans alike. Just put a little in a saucer, and dab onto the wound/ nail.

"It is also to be noted of every species, that the handsomest of each move best ... and beasts of the most elegant form, always excel in speed; of this, the horse and greyhound are beautiful examples."----Wiliam Hogarth, The Analysis of Beauty, 1753.

Not to sound like a weirdo, but I try all the dog's first aid products on me or DH, partially so we know if they hurt, partially because we never bother with first aid supplies for anyone but our boys.
