    well, my bunnies teeth became overgrown yet again, even with following the doctors advice and all of that. well, rather than face a 150 dollar vet bill to have him knocked out and the teeth trimmed, we spent 40 bucks on a dremel tool set and did it ourselves. he didnt even flinch. we had him lay on his back for the procedure and it took maybe 5 minutes for the top and 5 for the bottom. he is a very happy bunny now!

    Sounds like you will just have to keep trimming them. Good job in doing it yourself.

    Isn't it nice when you can save yourself a huge vet bill? Good for you [​IMG]

    yeah we were nervous but we cant afford that much every month to do something that we can do here. poor bunny..i actually got him for free from the local shelter..they were going to put him to sleep because no one wanted him, including the jerk who dumped him there over the weekend. he has quickly became a very big favorite with all of us. i have to say though that he is the most expensive "free" pet ever!
