Rabbits can go down hill very fast if unwell, so getting to know your rabbit is really beneficial when you need to spot the signs of a potential problem.

Did you know their teeth never stop growing, therefore correct diet is essential. If you notice any of the following signs it may be an indication that your rabbit is experiencing some dental problems.

  • Dribbling
  • Weepy eyes
  • Quiet and subdued
  • Off their food/ difficulty eating
  • Weight loss
  • Reduced passing of faeces
  • Swellings of the jaw/ face

If you do notice any of the above it would be best to get them seen to by a Vet.
