    Does anyone have some experience in daily grooming a fuzzy lop or any other long haired bun? We have had Bonton for a week now and have been able to do some light brushing that he somewhat tolerates. When we picked him up we were given a slight tutorial of where to look for mats(he only gets them above his tail on his butt), and how to help get his undercoat out when hes going through a heavy shed/molt. We have a wide toothed comb and a comb specifically for removing mats and lose or dead fur. i have been trying to do this daily but he really dislikes anything getting close to his back end(classic bunny). Since he has been with us only a week now and bonding is important, im trying to do as much as i can without adding extra stress, such as picking him up or holding him. But i dont want him to develop any painful tangles or mats. So far he doesnt have any on his butt and the rest of his fur is tangle free. We are taking him in for a first time visit with the vet, so im sure she can show us as well to help. Any tips or advice is much appreciated!

    hi , it seems you are doing a good job, and as long as there are no matts on the butt then you should be fine, my rabbits hate bieng fliped over, but they are really forgiving. Make sure you don’t ever call their name when you are going to groom them or clip their nails or else the geniuses will associate that with grooming and wont come when called
