HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with are going to have to take your rabbit in because your rabbit will have to be sedated and have the nail cut back and cauterized. There is no way this can be handled at home. This requires vet intervention and I would consider taking her to the ER tonight so she does not have to be in pain all night. Otherwise take her in tomorrow asap. I hope this helps you. Sincerely, DRB
