Vet Caustic Silver Nitrate Styptic Pencil

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

This design gives a pointed end and is thus ideal for spot use.

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

NOTE: Do not use styptic powder or pencils on birds with broken blood feathers / these items are caustic to skin (especially delicate bird skin).

    "I was cutting my dogs claws and nicked a quick and it would not stop bleeding all day. I decided to buy a silver nitrate caustic pencil that I had previously used in the vets and the only place I could find it was Pet Drugs Online. It arrived quickly and now I have a backup in case I cut a claw too short again."
