Do rabbit teeth grow back?
« on: 23/06/2008 02:34:34 »
I know they constantly grow, but after one is pulled does it ever come back? We had to pull one of our rabbits tooth because he like messed it all up (couldn't be cut) some how.

Thanks Sim  :)

incisor malocclusion ?

Rabbit dentistry: Incisor removal
Once loosened,the tooth should be gently rotated and pressed back into the
socket to destroy apical germinal tissue failure to do this will
result in tooth regrowth, and even when this is done incisors will
occasionally regrow .

So Bunnie's toothloss is probably permanent.
If they do regrow they will probably still be misaligned and have to be extracted again.

Why don't you do a little experiment. I'm sure you can lay your hands on a baseball bat.  :P

I was surprised to see the level of medical resources which are expended on a pie filling  :).

Everybody sing!

On the farm, Ev'ry Friday
On the farm, It's rabbit pie day
So ev'ry Friday, that ever comes along
I get up early,And sing this little song...


Run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run, run, run
Run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run, run, run
Bang, bang, bang, bang! goes the farmer's gun
Run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run, run, run


Run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run, run, run
Don't give the farmer his fun, fun,fun
He'll get by without his rabbit pie
So run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run, run, run


On the farm,No poor rabbit
Comes to harm, Because I grab it
They jump and frolic, Whenever I go by
They know I help 'em, To dodge the rabbit pie!

Never fear Sim, Beaver could lend your bunny some of his. They might chew their way out of the cage though.

The nabaztag (rabbit) gadget looks like one of those Pokemon characters, so I can see it selling well in Japan.
