Nailing care is an important part of keeping your bunny healthy and happy. Though rabbits groom themselves, their nails can grow too long if they don’t have anything to file them down.

If you’re not experienced in cutting bunny nails, it’s best to consult with a vet or professional groomer. However, if you’re comfortable doing it yourself, we’ll walk you through the process step-by-step so that you can do it safely and easily at home.

What You’ll Need

-A pair of cat nail clippers or guillotine-style nail clippers
-A file

Here’s everything you need to know about cutting your bunny’s nails safely and easily.

The Steps

1. Gather your tools. You will need a small, sharp pair of scissors and some styptic powder or cornstarch.
2. Restrain your bunny. If your bunny is not used to being handled, this may take two people. One person can hold the bunny while the other trims the nails.
3. Locate the quick. The quick is the pink part of the nail that contains blood vessels and nerve endings. You want to avoid cutting into the quick because it will bleed and be painful for your bunny.
4. Trim the nails. Cut each nail at a slight angle so that you avoid cutting into the quick.
5. Stop any bleeding with styptic powder or cornstarch. If you do accidentally cut into the quick, apply pressure to stop the bleeding and then apply styptic powder or cornstarch to help stop the bleeding and prevent infection


We hope this guide was helpful in teaching you how to cut your bunny’s nails safely and easily. Remember to be patient and go slowly at first, and always reward your bunny with treats afterwards. With a little practice, you’ll be a pro at this in no time!
