    Default Detal bun owners. Lop or upright ears?

    I am just curious to know if most dental buns have floppy ears or not. Also did they have a snubbed face?

    This is the first poll I have tried to do so forgive me if it does not work

    This is what I am doing (hopefully) with Feegal. He is going for a check up tomorrow and that's what got me thinking...
    Sorry for your buns

    She is

    I think what I mean by snubbed is, as your girl shows perfectly, the face ends with a blunt not pointy nose/mouth

    I've had both lops and up eared buns with dental problems.

    Both seem to suffer equally from molar problems.

    However I've never had a lop suffer with incisor malocclusion...in fact incisor problems nearly always seem to be Dutches or Nethies or crosses of these two breeds...but this might just be coincidence

    eric & esme are nethies. eric has needed a couple of dentals in 12 months but i have his teeth checked regularly and finding his fave hay has helped to keep the spurs down.

    esme has had one dental since i adopted her. her teeth were long rather than spurred so i'm not sure what she may need in the future dentistry-wise after her next check up. she's a good hay eater too.

    because i was a different person then

    I didn't think of nethies, or I would have put that as an option

    Hope Esme escapes the need for any more dentals
