Rabbits

  • Shelter: Your Rabbit needs to be kept dry. If she is left outside in wet conditions she is liable to become sick. Ensure that your Rabbit has a house that does not leak or allow excess moisture to intrude where she sleeps.
  • A Dry Bed: Keep your rabbit’s bed clean and dry at all times. Position several layers of news paper under the hay to soak up urine and maintain dryness. Check all bedding regularly; and remember that prevention is always better than cure—the danger of a wet bed combined with a frost, for instance, could prove fatal.
  • A Clean Bed: The cage or enclosure must have its hay and newspaper changed at least once a week. Because your rabbit will usually excrete in one corner of its house, it’s also a good idea to place extra newspaper under that area.
  • Clean Water: Rabbits are prolific drinkers. Always satisfy their thirst by making plenty of clean water available, especially during Summer.
  • Rabbit Pellets: Domesticated rebbits bought from us or any other store must be fed rabbit pellets in their main diet. A bare diet of grass or vege leaves only is unsuitable.
  • Love and attention: If you want your rabbit to become friendly, handle her on a regular basis. The more you handle her, the more friendly she will become.

FINER POINTS

Don't change the balance of your rabbit’s diet. Too many greens, for example, may cause diiarrhea and even death. Greens are only a treat and should be fed sparingly. Always wash any leaves before feeding them to your rabbit. The outside leaves of a cabbage are often covered in sprays that will kill insects and your rabbit as well.

Particularly harmful to rabbits is the Calici virus. Ask your local vet to vaccinate your rabbit to prevent infection.

Furthermore, try to disinfect your cage on a regular basis; and whenever possible allow direct sunlight to dry everything completely, removing any threat of bacterial infestation.
