My rabbit has a problem where her back teeth keep growing as she's not using them.
It causes them to overgrow, spurs and abcesses in the roots. This is a chronic problem which involves being put under, the teeth being taken out and antibiotics for abcesses every 2-3 months. She starts to sneeze and drink copious amounts of water and that's how I know the teeth have gone bad again.
My rabbit is now 4 years, and a bigger bun, so she's not young.
The cost to do this is more than I can afford every 2-3 months now. And I have other older rabbits who thankfully haven't needed the vet in years, but since they are more than double the age of this rabbit, I am sure vet bills will start popping up soon enough. Yes, I know you shouldn't take a pet into your home unless you can provide for it for it's life. I didn't forsee this issue and had never heard of it before.
What would you advise? Should I let her go? She's my baby. A really dopey raisin addict, but silly bun who I love.
I don't even understand how a rabbit doesn't use it's molars to chew.
