My Holland Lop is just over a year old. For the most part he is free roaming inside and only runs on wood or carpet. I have tried various times up until now to trim his nails. The front go pretty well - I snip a little off, but with the rear - it just seems there's nothing to trim before I hit the quick. They seem fairly long - though they don't really seem to get longer than where they are right now and not as long as I would think given I haven't ever effectively trimmed them (they aren't curling or anything.) I have just tipped them as little as I could possibly manage (which isn't effectively making them any shorter) but if I go anything beyond a dusting - I will make him bleed . Of course nail trimming is getting harder and harder bc he really isn't pleased about this. Do they ever bite their own nails or can they wear just on a hard wood floor? I know my lion head could use a trim every 4 months or so. I keep up the effort in hopes he will get used to a trimming -in case they indeed start to grow too long - but I also pretty much make him bleed each time from a back nail - I feel terrible.
