Rabbits typically go through two fur changes each year , one in the spring and one in the fall. The change in color is usually a sign that the rabbit’s coat is healthy. However, if your rabbit is pulling out his fur, it could be a sign that he’s stressed or uncomfortable.
There are a few things you can do to make him feel more comfortable. For example, if your rabbit is new to the family, he might be stressed out and trying to deal with his new environment by scratching and chewing on his fur. Spend time with him and gently pet him to show that you care.
If there’s something in particular that seems to stress him out, consider getting rid of it. It also helps to have all his supplies in one area so he doesn’t feel like he has to try and hide from everything that might be upsetting to him.
If your rabbit is pulling out his fur, it could be a sign that you’re holding him too tightly or restricting his movement when petting him. Your rabbit should be able to lie comfortably across your lap when you pet him. If he’s always in an upright position or seems uncomfortable when you touch his underside, it might be time for a new approach.
It can also help to give your rabbit more attention than just petting. Spending time running around outside together helps both of you get exercise and play together.
