    Hello, I would like to know if anybody has tried clipping their rabbits nails? Do they have the vein like dogs do that would bleed? The wife is tired of getting scratched and asked me to post this question. Thanks, Randy

    Yes, you can clip just like dogs nails. And they do have the vein there. If you look closely you should be able to see. I'd start clipping just a bit off the tips at a time until you and the rabbit gets used to it. I use toenail clippers for mine.
