So I've been trying to trim O.P.s wayyy over grown nails, and its proving difficult as they are actually at the curling stage. I've tried nail files, and as it turns out actual nail clippers seem to work best, i got one foot done, but then as I looked at his other foot i noticed that he broke off one of his nails.. like right where it starts growing, and its bleeding a bit, (not enough to cause me to worry at all) but I'm not sure what to do with it, should i try to remove it? Could it cause an infection? Its probably causing him pain right? As you can see, I'm a little confused, I know that cats can bleed PROFUSELY if you cut their nails to far back.. is it the same with rats?!
