    I was grooming Rain during her recent molt and kept plucking and plucking. I think I’ve ruined the poor things beautiful fur ;-; I noticed today that whenever I plucked there’s now a square patch on her back where the fur is short and uneven compared to the rest. If I knew how to send pics from iPhone I would but does anyone know how much plucking is too far and how to fix this

    Also she sort of flinches when I groom her is this normal or am I plucking her way too hard

    Rabbits fur sheds and molts in patches, so rabbits will not look very pleasant during a molt. Lots of different levels, so that’s normal.

    In terms of flinching, you just want to make sure the fur is ready to come out. If it takes more than a tug, leave it be and check tomorrow. My recommendation is spread the love, so don’t concentrate on the same area for an entire grooming section because it can be a bit strainful for that patch of skin.

    I wouldn’t worry too much, I gave Thumper and Harley a bald patch during their first molt with me and their fur grew back just fine.

    You’ve only done what so many rabbit pals do: overgroomed your bunny buddy. Don’t worry. It’ll grow back and even out again.
