Ferret problems

When I was about to leave for work this morning, something bad happened. Bono - my 5 year old albino ferret - jumped out of his cage, the same wicked way he always does, but it seems he got stuck with one of his nails. I heard something was wrong while he was sliding down, and when I approached to check it out I saw the blood.

I immediately realized that blood wasn't good, but after checking him out and calming him down with some ferretone, it turned out he pulled out the far left nail of his left front paw. Not a good thing, but on the other hand, it could have been worse if he had broken a toe or so. The bleeding stopped after a while, but I called the vet just to check what I should do. She confirmed that it was not that bad, and that the bleeding would stop soon.

By the time I was done talking to the vet, Bono was already in his cage, eating his food, so I guess he'll be fine. I checked once more, but the bleeding completely stopped now and he'll survive for sure. Still, I'm not really concentrating on whatever that should keep me busy today, but my mind will be in the ferret cage all day.
