There are various suggestions I have read on how to keep a rabbit cool in hot and extreme heat conditions, including here.
What none of these seem to address is the suitability of shaving or trimming the rabbit's fur. I have read various opinions on this and they range from "don't do it unless you have special expensive equipment like a vet" or "don't do it because the fur will protect the bunny from the heat" to "it will definitely help to keep the rabbit cooler". There are also differing opinions on how short a cut should be.
I have had experience shaving rabbit fur, but not expressly for the purpose for dealing with being outdoors in hot weather, so I am familiar with the issues doing the actual shaving, but not with the practicality of it.
Will shaving a rabbit help them to better deal with the heat? Will it be helpful in filling gaps in other cooling methods when they aren't possible, for instance those which appear to require frequent presence to refresh cold water or frozen water bottles?
