Most other pellets have molasses as a binding agent – and it adds the sugar that males our bunnies prefer those pellets to sherwood. That’s why it is sometimes difficult to make the switch. If I were to try to bath my other feisty bunnies, I’d start with a rubber mat in the bath sinc/container, Unfortunately my Lancelot is so good about being handled that I don’t have any advice for you on that. I can hold him on his side balanced on one hand/arm, then flop him over onto hsi other side on my other hand/arm to rinse his other side. For fur trimming – when I was asking my vet if he woudl do ti for me, he asked hiw good Lancelot is at lying still, or would he need to restrain him… yikes. I guess I’m lucky here too. I place Lancelot on his back on my lap. He knows what I”m doing and doesn’t really like it, so I pet him and wipe his eyes while I’m triming. He likes having his eyes wiped. If one spot is irritating him and he starts to flinch, I move on to another spot. I can stretch his legs out to tri the fur on hsi thighs, and really give him a good sanitary cut. But I go slowly. Probably slower than a vets assistant would, so it takes me a few sessions to get hsi hair as short as I woudl like it I can flip him over to get each side, he’s really good. After about 2 hours, he will start chattering his teeth, so I don’t go that long. For your bunny, I would get him in a bunny burrito, put him on his back on your lap, and maybe have someone help you hold him. Be quick, pet him, and treat him as soon as you are done..
