Rabbit teeth

Did you know that rabbit's teeth keep growing & growing throughout their lives. In the wild, rabbits chew on all kinds of things such as grass, roots and trees which keep their teeth naturally short. Our domestic bunny needs lots of things to chew as well so they can stay healthy & happy.

Give your bunny safe things to chew, such as:

* lots of hay
* unsprayed apple branches
* unsprayed & dethorned rose sticks
* cardboard boxes
* old telephone books

NEVER CUT YOUR RABBIT'S TEETH WITH CLIPPERS!!!!! Clipping teeth causes the teeth to split and become infected.

If your rabbit has teeth that are too long, please visit an experienced rabbit vet with dental equipment.
