      Hello everyone! Like the title says my rabbit has been loudly clicking her teeth but the vet didn’t find any issues. My rabbit is also not showing any other signs of pain or discomfort. Except for itching ears which the vet gave her some flea meds, also gave her some ear mite meds a month ago. Bunny usually teeth clacks when she is lounging so I thought it was a purr but it is way to loud to be a purr, especially compared to when she purrs when I pet her. Vet said to keep an eye on her and look for signs but I was curious if loud teeth clacking can be a sign of contentment and not just pain. I know everything I’ve read says loud clacking is always a sign of pain but that it comes with other signs like hunched positions, eating less, etc. Thanks in advance.

      They can purr loudly. My bun Bam purred so loud it could be heard throughout a room, especially when he was lying in my mum’s lap when we were visiting and she pet him. He jumped into her lap himself and demanded pets, so it was totally voluntary on his part (mum didn’t really have a choice though).

      You should of course keep an eye, but without any other signs of discomfort – like poor appetite, dishevelled fur (not really applicable if you have a longhaired bun), messy butt, hiding away from the humans etc, this sounds like it could be tooth purring. Esp young rabbits sometimes tooth purr when they’re just lounging.

        Thank you for the reply, this makes me feel a lot better. Every time I heard her grinding I got so worried she was in pain but everything is pointing to her just being very loudly with being content lol. Thanks again for the reply!

      They can also grind their teeth as an expression of frustration. From my experience though, it is just a single tooth grind followed by a foot flick. Haha! So yes, this could just be loud purring, especially if your bunny is doing it while lounging.
