You may have seen videos of rabbits looking calm and content while submerged in a sink full of water, and yes, there are those rabbits who do enjoy taking a bath or even swimming! But they are more the exception than the rule.
Risks posed by bathing your bunny:
When a bunny goes into shock, his body temperature plunges, and his body may start to shut down.
Rabbits have sensitive skin, making them prone to many skin ailments. A rabbit bath strips away the skin’s natural oils, which leaves your bun’s skin dry and vulnerable to bacterial and fungal diseases.
When you bathe your bunny, water could accidentally get into his ear or nose. Water in the ears can lead to an infection.
Because rabbits don’t like being in the water, your pet may panic when you place him in the sink or tub and start thrashing around. Rabbits have strong hind legs, but their spines are brittle.
