Rabbit Grooming 101

By Kai B Gomez 

Rabbits, by nature are meticulous cleaners. Much like cats, they keep themselves clean by using their tongue. You can see them clean their face using their paws as washcloths moisten by their saliva. As social creatures, rabbits help groom each other's hard-to-reach areas.

While rabbits pretty much clean themselves, a good grooming from their person wouldn't hurt. In fact, it can help prevent health problems often gone unnoticed. It's a great bonding activity for you and your bun.
