#If you do slip and the ferret starts bleeding, have some baking soda in a little bowl. Stick the nail that is bleeding into the bowl and cover the nail with the baking soda. The bleeding should stop within 3-5 minutes. If it doesn’t, wrap some tissue around it. Do NOT keep cutting. Wait at least a week or until the ferret’s nail heals before cutting the rest just in case you cut another one.[[Image:Groom a Ferret Step 12.jpg|center]]
