    Default Dental situation

    Ok so Iv just spoke to the vet practice to ask about bellas recent dental. I found out she had molar spurs & booked her in for treatment. I phoned to ask how many teeth had spurs. The receptionist spoke quickly to the vet that did it & said that there wasnít a particular number of teeth done that she filled down all her molars!! I asked why was this done & was told itís because rabbits teeth grow continuously. Now as far as Iím aware she did not have spurs on all her teeth so why file them all down. Would this not cause them to grow quicker & spurs could come up now. I just donít get this if there was no bloody spurs on them. This could be routine & im waiting on the vet to phone me back as to why all teeth on top & bottom were done. Is this right or what happens? Thank you for reading xx

    The crowns of the teeth might have be overly long which can lead to the formation of spurs. Information about Rabbit Dental treatment here

    Thank you Jane. Will take a look. I will see what vet says when she phoned as to why. I hope this was the case & thatís why. If not though should I be concerned she did this? Xx

    This is great info. Had a quick read & will read again. Iím just worried if there was no issues thatís by burring them all it will cause them to grow faster & more likely get spurs that wouldnít have happened if they hadnít been touched. Iím getting the radiograph you said about so going to ask them about getting this for a full mouth view of everything xx

    From conversations I've had previously when I've had dental buns, the vets don't necessarily just stick to just urging the teeth with spurs, they will even them all out with the aim of evening them out. This is only anecdotal though and I may be wrong but that was my understanding of it.

    I don't know anything about this subject, so I can't say anything. I hope she can get treatment from her teeth as soon as possible and regain her health. Send lots of vibrations xxxxxxxx

    Hi there. My two cents. Sherlock the young bun was neutered at around 7 -8 months at the same tem burred spurs and then again after 4 months. And so far there was no need to re-doo. They leveled them up the last time and so far his hay is doing the work. Plus I'm guessing he does not have that bad bite.

    Once they level the teeth they gave you and the bun more chance of prolonging the time for another dental and in case of very young bun-perhaps no more need at all. I would suggest for you to be very strict with diet. Only one table spon for 1kg bunny. And the rest is hay and no more then size of heay leafy veggies. I only give treats or pieco of fruit after cliping nails. After seing all the trouble Brko has with his teeth.

    Hi, thank you. That makes sense & good to know. She wasnít getting any pellets before & only hay as had to cut other stuff out for the cecotropes issue. Sheís on metacalm now for suspected arthritis xx
