Rabbit teeth removed but they are growing back

by Salvador
(Calgary, Alberta)

Hi,
My friend has a bunny and his incissors teeth got removed about a year ago. However, they are growing back, he hasn't gone to the vet again, and before we take him I wanted to do some research. My question is why would they grow back? And if he has to go under surgery again. What is the best way they wouldn't grow back again?

Thanks
SALVADOR

Are they good teeth or bad teeth?

I would let the vet know, and then keep an eye on them to see if the original problem is recurring. The teeth do grow back sometimes, not always. Rabbit teeth just need monitored and your vet should be able to tell you if these ones growing in also need removed.

could it be continuous growth?

I'm no expert, but I read somewhere that bunny incisors grow continually, so maybe when they lose them they grow back? just a suggestion.

Yes. They were removed due to malocclusion.
