How often Should a Small pet have its nails trimmed?
A small pet should have their nails trimmed as required. When nails become too long they need to be trimmed. An experienced person must trim a small animal’s nails as if they are cut too short they can cause bleeding and pain.
What happens if an animal’s nails get too long?
In the case of rabbits, if their nails get too long the rabbit will compensate by changing the angle in which they put their foot down. This will eventually lead to increased wear on the joints.
Long nails can also easily get snagged. A snag can then lead to rips and foot injuries.
