Holly cow!!!!!!!!!!!! I just cliped Cookie's nails. (the front two paws only) I was so scared that i might clip the quick!!!!!!!! but when i got to the hind legs i saw that the quick was almost as long as the nail. so i was afraid that i might cut the quick so what should i do?
No worries. When the quick has grown to long, you can help it recede by just trimming the nail even slightly more often! So, what you should do, it just trim the very very tip of the nail. You'll need to trim more often over the next few months (check the nail every couple of weeks to see if you're able to trim - it may not need it until three weeks etc - each bunny is different)
The quick should begin to recede and then you can trim on a more normal timeline.
So i ditto what Wendyzski says.
Just an itsy bitsy clip more often will help it recede over time.
