Rabbits are meticulous self-groomers, but this doesn't mean that we(owner) don't need to groom them as well. Check the rabbit from head to toe for any lumps, bumps, cuts, fleas, overgrown nails or teeth, and any other changes or possible trouble spots. Rabbits hide their sickness very well, so care should be doubled if u having a rabbit as a pet.
