Guys I just realised that my bunny’s nail turned black and it’s position seems kind of weird like a broken one but it’s not hanging off at all. I now that some rabbits have black nails but she didn’t have one before.She is acting normal running around and jumping but I’m really worried.What should I do? The thing is there isn’t many rabbit friendly vets in my country. I was wondering if you might be able to give me some advice.1044DB4E-CD85-4606-8810-B6BB3359EC75.jpeg02E1B47C-9C6B-4719-A38D-7331055E78FE.jpeg

How long is the nails and have you been trimming the dew claws? How do your bunny react when you touch the claw, do your bunny act like she’s in pain?

I would trim the dew claws carefully, I had my bunny Odin claws growing weird when they got long and one of them don’t want to properly grow as a normal claw 😂

Thanks for your reply 🥰I few hours ago I backlighted the nail with a flashlight and I found out that it’s really half broken There wasn’t blood vessels in the broken line so I cut it safely and it didn’t bleed any I think she is fine now.I was the one at fault cause I haven’t trimmed her nails lately😞 Thanks again😊F820569B-E8A2-428E-BF6B-F48459567A12.jpeg

Broken claws happens, I’ve even gotten it when my bunnies have trimmes nails. It was good that you could trim the nail 😊
