If you have a long haired bun you will need to give serious thought to grooming. Long haired buns can quickly become matted without proper care. Your options are either to find a rabbit savvy pet parlor or learn to do it yourself. Short haired buns really only need grooming when they are molting. If your buns are indoor buns they may also need their nails trimmed from time to time.
Buns NEVER should be submerged in water. They do not have the ability to cough so water in their lungs can quickly lead to infection and death. They also struggle to regulate body temperature and can take a long time to dry. They are not able to shake off like a dog.
