Burr – don’t clip teeth!

Incisor (front teeth) dental problems are extremely common in rabbits. Many rabbits need dental treatment throughout their life but we want to remind you that teeth should never be clipped, they should always be burred. Clipping damages the tooth roots and can worsen the problem, and is also painful for the rabbit. Clipping is an out dated procedure, if your rabbit is going to have a dental please check that the vet is going to burr the spur and not clip it.
