Hi!
I know that I need to be checking my buns teeth to insure they dont get overgrown, and so that I can correct things before they are a problem. We keep our buns in wire cages, but do give them things to chew on (untreated wood, etc.)
But I cannot for the life of me figure out how to check their teeth. Every time I try, I get little nips from my buns, and I have seen what those girls do to celery and carrots! I don't want to lose a finger!
Any tips for checking teeth that is comfortable for both them and me?

Thanks!
-Liz

As long as they have plenty to chew on and aren't having problems eating, I wouldn't worry about it too much. If they stop eating, the first thing to check is the teeth, but very few have problems - especially if they have lots of chewing materials available :)
