Some breeds of rabbits, particularly the long-haired varieties, need brushing daily to remove loose and matted hair.
Not many people know that rabbits can be trained, this is great for their physical and mental stimulation.
This is important to reduce the risk of hairballs and flystrike. It also keeps your rabbits in good condition, and helps to improve the relationship between you. There are many different combs and brushes available – always ask which ones are suitable for your rabbits.
Be careful to be gentle when brushing long haired rabbits, as their skin can tear very easily if you pull on their fur too hard.
Rabbit’s teeth can grow at a rate of 3mm per week and this is why eating lots of grass and hay helps to wear their teeth down.
Rabbits are incredibly sociable animals and if they don’t have the right company and lots of fun things to do they can suffer.
