    Yea I had a look last night by making him beg for food, all of them look fine except one or two on his rear foot... They aren't crazy long tho...

    I've booked him in for a vet nurse to clip them later when I go pick up some bunny meds.. Feel a bit mean handing over my deadly hamster to the poor nurse, but not sure what else I can do really

    I had a Syrian with long nails once too. I eventually found a vet nurse that easily snipped them off. Some things are definitely beyond my capabilities!

    It's easier if you have a cage with bars,I made him climb up a bit for treats then snipped his nails as he held on to the bars.

    Ah yes that's out now I think it's literally one nail on his back left leg... Hopefully the vets can sort it out, gotta go there later anyway, otherwise not sure I'd go just for one nail
