My mouse Pippin appears to have ripped up on of his back toe nails. I have been cleaning it with sterile water and treating it with antibacterial powder. This seems to have prevented infection, but now I'm not entire sure what to do about the nail. It doesn't appear to be extremely tender (I can touch it) but it is sticking at a very awkward angle. This is preventing me from allowing him to play on my dressing gown as he keeps getting said nail caught.

I do have a vet lined up just in case, but I'd like to avoid that kind of stress where possible

I would trim the nail if possible Smile Nails sticking out at odd angles can cause discomfort, so using a pair of small nail clippers and carefully trimming the nail would be a good bet Smile

Hi, I've had to trim a couple of toe nails before. Depending on the mouse and how well they stay still you have to be very careful when cutting their nails. There is a vein right by the nail, so you may be better off filing the nail down or just cutting the very tip of the nail.
