Spring is in the air and if you have a rabbit you have notice hair flying out everywhere!
Rabbit's fur is a lot like our own hair. Dull, flaky and loose hair isn't a sign of health. When your rabbit is healthy and eating a appropriate diet the signs will be seeing on its fur. Of course genetics are very important too, but here we are talking about keeping your rabbit clean and healthy, assuming you already have a rabbit that comes from great genetics. Feed and grooming cannot fix a generically bad fur.
You can tell that your rabbit is molting normally if you see the molting line going down and the new fur coming in progressively. It shouldn't take months but weeks. I know it can feel like forever when you have to clean their fur out of the hutch daily, but by doing so you are helping your bunny from ingesting unnecessary hair.
The first step is to have the right tool.
I love and recommend the HairBuster. The rounded tips are gentle on rabbit's skin and prevents scratches. The sleeve keep the fur in place. I also like to have a small spray bottle which I use to spray my hands and grab all the loose fur out of the rabbit's skin before I begin brushing.
A clean rabbit is a healthy and happy rabbit.
We are having a Before and After photo contest on my Facebook page, if you are getting ready for grooming, you might want to snap a couple photos and submit by PM to me, the winner will get a HairBuster!
