Why is Rabbit Dental Care Important?

Dental issues can be one of the most common health problems affecting rabbits. One of the biggest contributors to their dental problems is how your rabbit’s teeth will continuously grow throughout their lifetime. Unfortunately, this can often lead to severe pain, discomfort, and potentially life-threatening problems later in life. This is why it is crucial to ensure that your pet receives proper rabbit dental care in Sutton.

Your rabbit’s overall well-being and happiness are at the core of everything we do. Here at Maven Vets, we offer complete examinations for your rabbit's dental health and gums, as well as advice for any routine dental care. You can help to protect your rabbit from dental diseases by protecting your rabbit’s teeth early. Preventing invasive and sometimes expensive dental treatments.

Signs of Rabbit Dental Problems

No responsible pet owner ever wants to know that their rabbit is suffering or in pain because of an easily preventable issue or disease. Therefore, it is vital to be able to recognise the signs of dental problems early. Allowing you to make a difference in your rabbit’s health and happiness. If your rabbit is experiencing dental problems, you may notice:

  • Your rabbit dribbling more than normal.
  • They start to swell around their face due to dental abscesses.
  • Your rabbit’s appetite may be decreased, or they may not be eating at all. Dental issues can cause your bunny to eat less because it will start to get painful when they chew their food. This must be monitored to prevent any significant weight loss.
  • You may notice that your rabbit produces fewer faecal pellets than normal. This is a strong indicator that your rabbit has had a change in their appetite and/or diet.
  • Similarly, your rabbit may stop eating their caecotrophs, the small faeces-like balls that rabbits produce once they’ve first eaten their food. These are then re-ingested to ensure that the rabbit receives all the nutrients, energy, and vitamins possible from their food. This is a completely normal aspect of their dietary behaviour. This may become a more obvious sign if your rabbit develops a ‘messy bum’.

Effective rabbit dental care can play a large part in guaranteeing your pet’s best quality of life. Therefore, we suggest that all rabbit owners make themselves familiar with their rabbit’s everyday features and habits. This way you will be more aware of potential issues when they arise before they become a problem as you are more likely to notice any changes. This can be especially key if your rabbit develops an urgent dental issue that requires immediate treatment.

If you believe that your rabbit is experiencing dental problems then please don't hesitate to contact us today!
