    Anyone carry this stuff? A lot of guys I talk to that run hunting dogs carry it all the time. I guess it can clot up even the nastiest of cuts really quick. It is designed for dog and horse handlers, but I'm sure it works just as well on human skin.

    I am going to order a tube and put it in my first aid kit as a just incase addition.

    I have never thought about using on human skin. I know we use it alot at the greyhound rescue group that I volunteer at and it works well on the dogs.

    same as quick clot I think. I wouldn't use it on pets, I would use something like the pet version of quick clot, works better with fur :)

    It's designed for animals, and doesn't seem to be indicated for human use - at least there is nothing on their website that says it is, or been approved by the FDA or equivalent.

    There is also no indication that it's sterile, so I wouldn't use it on humans or animals.

    Yeah I'd stick to things marketed and labeled for human use...

    I have it in my hunting kit for my dog but I've never used it on a human...... I would think that it would work but I would want to check with someone first.....
