Zeus was chasing my parent's dog around the house yesterday and he got one of his claws caught in the rug and ripped it off
I stopped the bleeding then called his vet. The receptionist told me that it's pretty common for that to happen to rabbits and that I should just keep it clean, keep his cage extra clean, and watch for infection.
I feel bad for him. I know how painful it is when humans cut or break their nails too short, and he ripped almost his whole nail off.
I've went crazy cleaning their cage today, because I don't want any germs to get into the toe and cause an infection. I cut away the fur around his injury so that I can clean it easier, and have been cleaning it with a mixture of water and peroxide, then putting on bacitracin (which is what his vet told me to do).
Zeus hates when I clean it but it seemed to be less tender today than it was yesterday when he first hurt it. I can tell it's still bothering him though. The vet said it shouldn't bother him for too long, a few days or so, and then it should start healing and feeling better.
Has this ever happened to anyone else's bunny before? Did you do anything special that I'm not already doing?
