"I just got a fuzzy lop. She is a little over 3 months old. When they (breeders) dropped the doe off with the buck, one of the bucks owners put her into the wrong cage. They wanted to breed Holland Lops. Well, it was some time till they realized 3 of the litter of 8 were fuzzy lops. As a result of being in the nest box with her brothers and sisters; her fur us horribly matted. I have used slicker brushes, and dematting combs; but I don't seem to be making a difference. She isn't a big fan of the brushing so I try to do frequent short brushings. I'm concerned that the mats are going to start causing her problems. This is my first rabbit and I've read that their skin is so delicate it can be easily torn just by brushing. If anyone has advice I would be thankful! Also, has anyone ever heard of shaving them? The mats are all connecting into one huge mass; poor thing can't really do much with them."
