Your rabbit needs to be groomed regularly. Regular brushing keeps your bunny’s coat in great condition, preventing the formation of matts which can irritate the skin and lead to infections or the deadly disease flystrike. Although rabbits regularly groom themselves, grooming removes excess fur that might be ingested otherwise, and cause problems with the hairballs. Lastly a good brush helps your pet get used to being handled and allows you to check for lumps or bumps that shouldn’t be there.
