Rabbit Teeth

Asked August 17, 2018, 5:20 PM EDT

My rabbit had an accident and landed on his face. Both top front teeth are chipped up to the gum, will his teeth grow back? or if not then will he be able to eat?

Hello-

I would first suggest you take your rabbit to the veterinarian if you have not done so already. His teeth should grow back over time, but may be misaligned due to the trauma. It is important that a veterinarian exam the teeth for damage including the possibility of cracks that may extend down the tooth. Damage to the teeth may impact normal wear patterns or alignment.
