    Default Missing claw

    Izzy seems to have a claw missing and it's bleeding a small amount. Do I need to be worried? Vets?

    I'd keep a close eye on it, I don't think a vet trip is necessary

    I double checked it and I don’t think her claw has gone completely I just think she pulled it. I put some salt water on it and seems fine now. My boyfriend had them out of their cage when I got home from work and he said she was jumping up onto things and slipped and scratched to try and get her balance so I think she may have caught it. Thank you for your help

    Should have stopped bleeding now. Just keep an eye and if it shows signs of infection go to the vets. Otherwise hey heal fine without interference

    DP has given good advice

    The one and only time my vet cut my rabbit's nails, she made one bleed She stopped the bleeding with a styptic pencil, and then gave me one in case it ever happened to me. So far it never has
