Fur loss (alopecia) in rabbits usually appears in patches and depending on the cause often comes with a variation of other symptoms.
Book an appointment with your vet if you notice your rabbit has a skin problem, waiting could lead to a more serious issue developing.
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.
A problem inside the ear or brain is the most common cause of a head tilt in a rabbit. This is because head position is controlled by the balance (vestibular) centre, which sits inside the ear/brain.
Rabbits are naturally clean animals that spend a lot of time grooming. A dirty bottom often indicates a health problem. Check your rabbits' bottoms regularly.
