Can't Stop Touching Her Eyes

I also use human nail clippers on my buns. I think they are easier to use. Although Teddy's back nails are so thick I have to use big ones for them. I also use human nail clippers on the cats - I always have.
My buns nails are clear but the dogs are dark and they are hard to cut. I have quicked the dogs and the bunnies before. If you don't have septic powder you can also try flour to stop the bleeding.
Dragonrain is right - if you do a little at a time it should be fine. I get greedy sometimes or the dogs move and that is how I cut too short. If that happens try not to feel too badly - I know I feel awful for them after that - they have always told me that with enough treats they hardly feel the quicked nail at all!
