Rodents teeth never stop growing, never ever. From the moment they are born until the moment they die, their teeth continue to constantly grow.

Rodents of course include rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats and mice, just to name a few. As rodents teeth never stop growing it poses a few challenges to the animals. While it may seem great at first thought, especially if you have dentures, the never ending growing can cause many problems. Some of the problems include uneven wear, and long teeth, which can cause starvation of the animals. To prevent any major health issues, the teeth are worn down by the animal’s constant gnawing on bark, leaves, and other vegetables.
