Here at Gower Vets, our team of leading experts are here to provide you with professional rabbit dental care for Swansea and its surrounding areas. We know how much of an impact our pets can have on our lives; they are more family than just furry friends. This is why we are dedicated to providing the dedicated care that your rabbits and bunnies deserve. This includes not only their overall health but your rabbit’s dental care as well.
The Importance of Your Rabbit’s Dental Care:
Dental issues are one of the most common health problems found among rabbits. This is partially due to how your rabbit’s teeth will grow continuously throughout their life. This can, unfortunately, lead to severe pain, discomfort, and potentially life-threatening issues further down the line. This is why it is vital to ensure that your bunny receives proper rabbit dental care in Swansea.
Your rabbit’s overall health, well-being, and happiness are at the core of everything we do. Here at Gower Vets, we offer complete exams of your rabbit's gums and dental health, as well as advice for their routine dental care. By protecting your rabbit’s teeth, you help to prevent rabbit dental diseases, which can lead to invasive and sometimes expensive dental treatments.
Signs of Rabbit Dental Diseases or Issues:
The last thing any responsible pet owner wants is to know that their rabbit is in pain or is suffering due to an easily preventable issue. Therefore, being able to recognise the signs of dental problems early can make all the difference for your rabbit’s health and happiness. You may notice:
- Hypersalivation, otherwise known as drooling.
- Swelling around their face due to a dental abscess.
- A reduced appetite, or them not eating at all. Rabbit dental issues may cause your bunny to eat less due to the pain caused when they need to chew their food. This must be monitored to prevent any weight loss.
- A reduced number of faecal pellets produced. This may be another indicator that your rabbit has had a change in their diet or appetite.
- Similarly, a reduced ability or inability to ingest caecotrophs (these are the small faeces-like balls that rabbits produce once they’ve eaten their food once. Then re-ingest to ensure that they receive all the energy, nutrients, and vitamins from their food. This is a completely normal and expected part of their dietary behaviour). This may become more obvious if your rabbit develops a ‘messy bum’.
Rabbit dental care can have an immense impact on your pet’s quality of life. This can be especially true if they have an urgent dental issue that requires immediate treatment. Consequently, we suggest that all rabbit owners make themselves familiar with their rabbit’s features and habits. This way you will be more aware of potential issues before they become a problem.
