Answer about pet rabbits: Healthy rabbits never need baths because they clean themselves; in fact, baths can be dangerous for rabbits and they should be avoided. If your rabbit is smelly or dirty, something is wrong and you should treat the cause, not just the symptoms (the smelliness or messiness) - this usually means a trip to the vet. See the related question below for more details and helpful links.

Answer about show rabbits: You should give your rabbit a bath every 2 months at the most, but you can give them a bath to smarten them up if you are going to take them to a show.
