Why dental hygiene is so important?

Frequent health checks by a veterinary professional (along with regular checks by you) will highlight potential problems. Signs to look out for include smelly breath, reddened gums, any discharges, broken teeth and facial swellings. If you are in any doubt, seek veterinary advice.

This can be achieved in a number of ways. The gold standard is regular (ideally daily!) brushing using an animal specific toothpaste (NOT HUMAN PASTE due to its fluoride content). Dental chews are also very useful and we recommend certain dental chews. Some dry food diets offer dental benefits due to the shape and consistency of the biscuits.

Many rabbits are selective eaters, they favour grains and pulses from the mixed, muesli type food. This can lead to bone problems, dental disease and obesity. A pelleted food should be given. It is not advisable to give fruit as it has a high sugar level.
