Yesterday when my bun was getting his nails trimmed, his left dew claw came off! All of a sudden it was just completely off his foot :( There was barely any blood and he still has a tiny nub left, but pretty much almost all the nail is gone.

He is acting normal, isn't limping or bleeding, eating, pooing, and running normally. He does have his yearly checkup with the vet in 9 days, so I will have the vet take a look then, but is there anything else I should be doing for him?

Sometimes nails come off. If it doesn't grow back in a month, you should be worried, but if it does, it's pretty normal. They lose their nails if they get broken.

I would just check it every few days to make sure it doesn't look infected or swollen.
