Avian & Exotics
WVC 91st Annual Conference
Rabbits are adapted to a course, high-fiber diet. Their teeth erupt throughout life and are meant to gradually wear down with continuous grazing and chewing on plant material. Rates of dental wear and eruption should be in equilibrium, and problems occur if they fall out of sync. Dental disease is a common presenting complaint in rabbits, and improper diet is a major factor in its etiology.
