Why is my rabbit gnawing on the bars of his cage?


Answer by  Valentine62 (2131)

A rabbit has to keep his teeth from growing too long, so he needs to chew on something, sans the cage. It would be wise to get him something else.


Answer by  ThugPlantLife (79)

Rabbits chew on the bars of their cage for one of two reasons: Your bunny is wearing down his teeth, which all rabbits must do to keep their mouths healthy - rabbit teeth grow all of their lives and must wear them down all the time. That, or he's bored!


Answer by  petterrific (60)

because either he needs more time to exercise like take him/her for a walk or he hasn't got any toys to gnaw on like carrots and hard things from pet store.

Your rabbit is most likely bored. There is a light chance that he could be hungry. As long as you are feeding it regularly hunger won't be a problem.

Rabbits teeth grow constantly. They will need to chew on something to file their teeth down naturally. Give your bunny treats and chews (wood/sticks). Feed a diet that's high in fiber. If this cage-chewing continues, you may have to take your rabbit to the veterinarian to have their teeth trimmed.
