Vet Caustic Silver Nitrate Styptic Pencil
Veterinary Caustic Pencil: 95% Silver Nitrate + 55 Potassium nitrate fused onto a pencil contained within a plastic holder.

To stop bleeding toe nails: moisten slightly with clean water then carefully place onto the end of the nail.

Works great but had a few where the nib has snapped off which is then a waste of money and cause its snapped ive got it on my fingers which has took months to get off ok for odd use which is what I use it for
