I really need help.
Im sick of my rabbit being uncomfortable but, every single time i trim his nails, or get them trimmed he RIPS them out..
He's more uncomfortable when i trim his nails than when i leave his nails.. But they NEED to be done eventually.. Every time, no fail, he rips them out..

Any tips or tricks for this?!

Trying to trim my rabbits claws alone is really stressfull and hard for them.

I’ve tried putting them on table, they jump, laying on the back they flip and so on.

What truly helps my rabbits are laying on the back and having a carrot or banana while eating.

So while they are distracted I can trim their claws or make someone else trim the claws while holding my rabbit myself.

I’ve taught all my rabbit to be calm when I handle them, so it becomes really easy for other people to trim the claws. Not easy doing it alone but it’s understandable.

Wrapping them up in a burrito might also help, but this dosen’t work for me.
