As mentioned in the above, you can use styptic powder to stop the bleeding in most cases.  If you do not have any styptic powder, a bar of soap can be used as well.

In the event that the nail is cut too short to prevent it from bleeding with the above methods, you should see a veterinarian help you bandage it properly and apply any additional therapies that may be needed.
