Your rabbit’s teeth are constantly growing. This is why they need to chew on so much grass and hay as it grinds their teeth down and stops them getting too long.
While we may not expect our cats to have breath as fresh as ours, if they have really smelly breath it could be the sign of an underlying medical problem.

Lungworm infection is becoming much more common, and is now a risk to dogs across much of the UK. Your dog is at risk of catching lungworm if they eat slugs and snails (this often happens by accident while eating grass).
FIV is a virus that infects cats and damages their immune system, making them prone to infections that they then struggle to recover from (similar to HIV in humans).
