View Full Version : Mini rex owners....LOOK HERE...!

28-05-2009, 10:08 AM

I am entering my mini rex lynx in a pet show class on Sunday. His coat does not looks its best at the moment as i think he is starting to molt. He is a bit clumpy. What are your techniques for grooming a mini rex? Some people say do not brush just wipe there coat over with a damp cloth! What would you say is the best way to get him looking as beautiful as usual?

Thank you.

Wet hands and stroking them is good too.

Thanks i will defo try that, hopefully that will work, iv also read about people using a lint roller :shock: on there fur to gently pull the lose fur out also helps with minimising the risk of fur balls to the rabbit.

yeah wet hands work for me. i wouldnt use a lint roller incase it stuck too well and pulled the fur out. good luck at the show!

I used to use a very soft baby-type brush on my rex. Her moults were :shock:

On a few websites on the internet it says that it is important to groom your rabbits because they can not be sick like cats and dogs, e.t.c they can get fur balls from licking themself but becasue they can not sick it up it can choke them. Please correct me if im wrong, just what ive read :D

I hardly even brush the girls, unless they are moulting crazily.

Yeah that is when you should groom them apparently whilst they are in moult rest of the time they are ok i think. :)

Good luck in the pet show, I love entering them :D
Anyway, a rubber washing up glove works great for molting rabbits. If there are any slightly long patches, then you can very gently tug on them. If they are loose, they should come out.
