Hi! I've heard about this happening to people before, and I know its scary because of all the blood. I think what you need to do is check this area once and awhile and make sure it stays clean (seems like he is doing a good job of that so far!) You would want to keep checking to make sure that if a new nail grows in, it grows in correctly, and also make sure that an abcess doesn't form around the area. Maybe your vet could give you some kind of disinfectant? I know you should NOT use neosporin plus, but it probably wouldn't hurt to clean it with soap and warm water to make sure he doesn't get any infection in the wound.
I think he'll be OK, just keep the area clean!!
Do you still see at least a stub? Or are you saying it's just a hole there now?
Checking for infection is the most important and though it is correct that you should not use Neosporin PLUS, (because it has pain killers in there that are toxic to rabbits) but you can use regular neosporin.
Is it still bothering him? Is he leaving it alone?
