Bunny fur question
Anyone here own cashmere's? Molly is a Cashmere and she knots soooo easily. I groom her and de-knot her and a couple of days later she is knotting up again. She is a lot worse in shedding season which she is doing now and she started when I was on holidays. My friend was looking after her but she kept biting her (she never bites me....but she has trust issues) and so she could only brush her so she had quite a few knots in her. I'm going to have to clipper the ones off her back paw cause they are just too bad. She'll let me do it and I am a dog groomer as part of my profession so I'm confident. I have two questions...
1. Any ways you can help stop the mass knotting without grooming 24/7 (she gets an hour twice a week)
2. When I'm brushing out her knots she goes to sleep on me and I'm very gentle but she loses the fur right from her skin. So she has bald patches all over her. She isn't irritated at all it just always happens. She gets a well balanced diet of mixed pellets, hay and vegetables (same as my other rabbit who does not have this problem) and is healthy. Is it just her, cashmere's in general or could she have a vitamin deficiency even though it doesn't appear that she does?
Too lazy to even think of a siggy
