Is your rabbit eating normally? (the way he eats and the quantity - is his poop normal in size?) If the answer is yes, you can probably leave it if it's just a small chip on one tooth. Rabbit's teeth grow and wear themselves constantly (that's why hay is so important). So if the teeth causes no pain preventing the rabbit to eat and that it's just chipped and not out of its natural axis, the chipped teeth will just grow and the top part will wear itselt until it looks normal again - in a few weeks you won't be able to see any difference with the other teeth. If the tooth looks even slightly bent or that your rabbit is showing any sign of pain you'll have to go to the vet.

-dear mel..-the info about rabbits,-check the library here at rol--a rabbits teeth are constantly growing-1-2mm per week,if it is a chipped tooth l/r quad ..a younger bun should recover easier than a much older one-might watch her to find out if it happened on the cage,-lots of grasses,-some-pellets and I support probotics to support the gut flora-this enhances the imunne system,and clean daily h2o...hope all this helps you-short of a visit to a exotic vet..sincerely james waller

Tysm for the message. My bunny thumper, he just turned one yr old. I think he did it from his cage. All day he is out to play around my house. But at night he is put to bed in his room. So he doesn't hurt himself while everyone is sleeping and I think it was from that. He has a great diet. Exapenaive pellets, lots of fresh veggies, lots of hay and etc. he teeth just look the same to me since he was little. That's why I'm worried. Do all bunnies teeth grow? All breeds? Yes he's eating and using his litter box just fine. An the chip is the corner. I'll try to take a pic of it and send it. Thanks again for all your help.

Yes. The teeth of all rabbits, all breeds, grow constantly throughout their lifetime. That is why hay is so important. It helps grind the teeth down so they do not grow too long.

Thank you so much. I'm new to this whole page. I was grooming my bunny just now and noticed he either caught his toe nail on something or bit his nail so it looks cut straight across like if you were to cut his nail but its not a full cut. And there is a little blood, idk what to do, I'm freaking out.
