Rabbits without doubt make wonderful, popular and family friendly pets so it is no wonder that many owners want to buy the best for their bunny.
Treat your rabbit to quality grooming products
Regular grooming enhances your rabbit’s coat and is a great time to bond with your pet. Regular grooming with quality rabbit grooming brushes and combs will keep the fur in healthy condition and prevent the formation of uncomfortable mats, knots and tangles. Irritation of the skin can lead to infections or fly strike, which can sadly prove deadly to rabbits.
Choosing a suitable brush for your rabbit
To keep your rabbit in good health, remove excess hair with a rabbit slicker brush or metal combination rabbit grooming comb. These will help to gently prevent tangles from forming. The slicker brush is the ideal grooming tool for removing loose hairs, dead undercoat, for smoothing the top coat and removing tangles. If you routinely bath your rabbit be sure to choose a shampoo specially formulated for sensitive skin – Masterclip stock the sensational Wildwash range of shampoos and flea deterrents. Rabbit slicker brushes can be use pre and post bathing and are suitable for all long and short coated breeds. The brush features flexible, cushioned pins and needs to be used carefully with not too much pressure.
Our best-selling Masterclip flea comb is also a great option for cleaning out any dander and smaller particles in the coat. With a single row of closely positioned teeth any debris trapped within the coat will be effortlessly removed.

Frequency of grooming a rabbit
This depends on coat type. Particularly long-haired rabbits should be brushed every day. Short haired rabbits can be groomed just once a week. During times of seasonal shedding it is wise to groom your rabbit more often.
