why is my rabbit shedding their fur and is this  normal the quick answer is yes this is completely  

normal similar to dogs you are going to find  that your rabbits will shed their fur multiple

exact definition of molting and a little bit of  details around rabbit shedding and what you can do  

to help your rabbit during this time i'm Danielle  of this littoral farm where we bring new content
