Abstract

WE would like to raise the issue of the ongoing practice of clipping of the incisors of rabbits by some veterinary surgeons. Clipping appears to be being undertaken by some as an apparently cheaper, easier and quicker alternative to trimming maloccluded and overlong incisor teeth using a dental burr. Instruments being used to undertake this clipping include nail clippers, nail guillotine clippers and dental clippers.
