    My rabbit Misty hates being touched on the foot. She hasn’t allowed me to cut her nails!! They’re super long but she won’t let me touch her feet! I tried before but she kept kicking and moving her feet.
    Please help

    Can you pick her up and let another person trim the nails while you are holding.

    I always do this to my bunnies. If she’s a food crazy bunny you can put her on the back. But not so she get in a trance state, she should still have the natural bend back. While letting her much on her favorite treat.

    This work for one of my bunnies that hate getting his claws trimmed. He always happily munch on the bananas and will flip back when he’s tired. Trimming his claws often takes 3 days, because he will only allow short times. He will still hide his paws, giving kisses and trying to avoid the clippers.

    You can maybe go to a pet shop or vet to trim the claws and see how they do it.

    Then you have the burrito style, but I only use this when I have to syringe feed. So don’t know how good it work on bunnies.

    I usually take my bun to the vet to have his nails trimmed. They have two people who do it. He doesn't like his feet being touched.
    When I trim his nails I home I need another person to help hold him.
