Cornstarch

Call the police the bleeding will increase slightly temporarily but that shouldn't last for to long.

Super Glue. It will dissolve in the body, and also acts as an antiseptic. Works well on humans too.

I've read that flour works well too.

+1 for the glue, just be sure to use some sort of antiseptic to clean it BEFORE applying the glue. If the wound is not clean before putting on the glue, it will trap all the nastiness in the wound thus increasing chances for infection.

Next time you are at the store, make sure to buy some styptic powder. Dog nails don't clot well, and it's always a good idea to keep some around if you have dogs. I personally know of one dog that actually bled out from losing a nail (thankfully not mine) - the injury wasn't noticed for some complicated reasons and some big negligence, but suffice that it was really sad and preventable.
