Checking Your Rabbits' Teeth

Getting a good look at your rabbit's teeth requires a reasonably tame rabbit! Gently pull back the rabbit's cheeks and check that the teeth are nice and sharp and have been worn down evenly. Getting a good look at their back teeth is a little trickier as the picture of a vet on the right shows.

The top teeth should overlap the bottom ones slightly. If you are worried that your rabbit's teeth are getting too long, make sure that they are eating plenty of hay as it is the most abrasive part of their diet.

Sometimes, through bad diet or genetics a rabbit's teeth can overgrow. If this does happen then your vet will need to burr the teeth down.
