No, you should not wash your rabbit unless it is very dirty or has soiled itself. When you put rabbits in water, they can go into shock and don’t need to be washed because they are self-cleaning animals like cats. If you have to wash your rabbit, here are some instructions/guidelines:
“Fill a bath/tub with about an inch of water. Put a towel in the bottom of the bath so the bunny has some grip. Use some gentle shampoo or soap in the water. Try and hold the front half of the bunny out of the water. This may stop her struggling. Gently massage the hind leg/tail area with your fingers and remove any poops. Tip the water out and then replace it with clean water to rinse the bunny. Use towels and paper towels to dry as best you can, then use a hairdryer to direct warm air in the general vicinity of the rabbit. Do not point the hairdryer at the rabbit as you may burn the skin. Generally rabbits will try and lick themselves dry.”
Hope this helped!
