Petco in Katybamboo styptic powder

I generally like Petco. I had to buy some styptic powder the other day because I was out of my bottle that I had for a few years. This is because I don't quick dogs nails very often but the bottle spilled. I like to have it "just in case". The only styptic powder they sell is in a tiny tiny vial, manufactured by Bamboo. It comes with a useless nail file on the side and the powder it self is in a little baggie inside the tube! The texture of the powder clings to the inside of the baggie and will NOT COME OUT! As a professional groomer I can assure you that it is frustrating trying to open this tiny baggie and pour the contents out when you have quicked a single nail. With the larger bottle, you can grab a "pinch" of styptic powder and press it to the nail easily. Thus less discomfort for the animal (and that's my goal). Bamboo makes this vial shaped mess with a toenail "cup" for the cap. Yeah that's really easy to press this tiny cap into a dog's quicked nail. The powder spills while the dog is jerking. (and jerking is how the dog got his nail quicked in the first place - so don't cry "animal abuse" because accidents happen, and are less likely with an experienced professional like me than you people who don't know what you're doing - no offense) Anyways this complaint is for Petco and Petco only, please bring back the tubs of styptic powder. It's way less ridiculous than that tiny baggied pointless nail file and nail cup on the end piece of crap you sell now ...oh and for ten bucks!!? rip off. i used it one time for one nail. had i been using the old styptic powder I could have taken care of the quicked nail and caused the dog to be in discomfort for less time than to fiddle with bamboo's piece of crap. Again I generally like Petco over Pmart even though the neon tetras you sold me all died immediately when the other fish are fine. God Bless whomever reads this unorganized and pointless rant! ;P
