A short fur rabbit should be brushed 2-3 times a week and a long fur rabbit should be brushed every 1-2 days. All rabbits will require a monthly grooming routine that includes the following steps:

  • Combing out loose fur with a slicker brush
  • Combing out matted fur with a flea comb
  • Removing fur stains using wet cotton pads and dry with tissue
  • Trimming off excess fur using a round-tip grooming scissor (only if you are confident in holding your rabbit and a scissor at the same time)
  • Clip off clear part of their nails while avoiding the kwik (red blood vessel)
  • Remove any external ear wax using cotton swabs
  • Remove any build-up on their anus scent glands using cotton swabs

As rabbits do not sweat, there is absolutely NO NEED for a healthy rabbit to be given WET BATHS as the sudden change in temperature on their thin skin can cause hypothermal shock. We also do not recommend POWDER BATH as rabbits can ingest the perfumed powder and have stomach issues.

Every rabbit owner should have a grooming kit with the following items:
