Coat care and grooming

In laboratory and school situations, a rabbit’s claws grow continually and need to be cut regularly by an experienced handler. Care must be taken not to cut blood vessels. Angora rabbits need their fur clipped at regular intervals. This activity should be carried out in a way that does not stress the rabbit. Cuts and scratches should be treated with antiseptic creams or powders.
