    Anyone know of a source for some of the clotting powders?

    You can use ground cayenne pepper, ground witch hazel, and from what I have read cob webs. [chopper]

    What clotting powders? You need to be more specific, you mean chitosin bandages? Never saw clotting powder "in the box"

    Celox and Traumadex available here.
    I have both and have bought from BOB many times.

    I'm not trained in it's use but I figure if the decision is bleed out or bleed out, I might be willing to give them a try.

    Any farm supply store will have blood clotter with their hoof and horn trimming supplies.

    Yup, I would be looking at the spice rack (cyanne pepper, black pepper, etc) or the farm supply places. I have a bottle that got from Farm and Home localy and keep it in the kit for the farm and animals.

    Farm supply places are an AWESOME source for medical supplies. You can get the clotting agents, syringes, IV or oral antibiotics, Coban (excelent wrap and exact stuff you pay through the nose for at drug stores but for pennies on the dollar), scalpuls, and some time even sutchers as well as staples and such.

    Table Pepper

    Regular table pepper can be used for blood clotting. Its also antibacterial in nature. I've used it with success in minor cuts due to daily misshaps. I carry a packet in my pocket that you see in restaurants and when I cut myself and apply it to the wound it stops the bleeding. There is no burning sensation when used. I've not tried it on any major cuts because I've not had the contact for anything major.

    Hm. Interesting use for pepper. Parallels its use in Barsleak for automotive radiators. (Works well there, too.) Any of our EMTs have input for this?
