Re: Rabbit molting

I would imagine it will grow back I know rabbits molt quite regularly especially if they are kept indoors. Mine are forever molting, and it comes out in massive clumps, it can look odd at times but if it's just falling out naturally i'd imagine it's just seasonal molting. The weather is all over the place too so that won't be helping. I'm speaking from experience though

Re: Rabbit molting

its fine mine have clumps of fur coming out again. I pull some out every so often but its a losing battle! When they are moulting heavy it is advised to give them some pineapple juice once a week as it breaks down fur in the gut

Re: Rabbit molting

I would say personally that that doesnt seem normal. Molting usually involves an underlying coat and not bald patches.

Is the bunny eating and drinking fine?

It could just be molting but that seems to be excessive in my opinion.

Also is the rabbit itself pulling the hair out ?

Re: Rabbit molting

Looking again i would like to add that there is obviously no visible skin issues as its very clean and normal colouring. Id probably say its normal molting and hes just unfortunate to not had any new fur grow just yet!

Re: Rabbit molting

I've seen some bad cases of moulting, but that's pretty extreme if you ask me. Doesn't seem normal for her to have bald patches like that.

Have you checked her for mites/ parasites at all? I'd phone the vet and see what they say...
