Rabbit with potential problems

This rabbit has congenital incisor malocclusion. The upper and lower incisors will never meet or be functional. He also has a big fluffy coat that would be a problem for him to groom, even if his incisors were normal. Rabbits use their incisors like pincers to grasp dead hair and remove it from the fur. The rabbit also has spotted markings, which is linked with 'megacolon' syndrome although only a small proportion of them develop it. This rabbit is going to take a lot of care. and commitment to keep the area under his tail free from urine and uneaten caecotrophs. He will need regular grooming and trimming.
