I was reviewing when suddenly, my electric fan turned off. I saw my rabbit chewing on the cord. The fan is now broken and cannot turn on.

My bun is eating and drinking well. I am just worried if there is something to look out on?

Check for scorch marks on the chewed electrical cord and burn marks around your rabbits mouth, or if your rabbit starts acting abnormally, has a reduced appetite, and/or is unusually lethargic, definitely have your rabbit checked by a knowledgeable rabbit vet right away. I would also recommend that you do some rabbit proofing so that all electrical cords are covered and protected, as a chewed cord is not only a possible danger to your rabbit, but is also a potential fire danger for your home.

My bun seems fine. She's eating and drinking properly. She's acting the usual. Thanks for the tip! :D

If your rabbit chewed electrical wire and made it shot cut, your fan will stop working. The fan is not supposed to be brocken. It is the wire short cut or burnt, so check the electrical wall outlet and fan's wire. You need electrical knowledge and some tools to check and fix it, although it's not so difficult.
