Rabbits are intelligent and have their own distinct personalities, requiring plenty of stimulation to prevent them becoming bored or stressed.
Domestic rabbits need to be able to express natural behaviours – plastic tubing and cardboard rolls can be used as tunnels whilst boxes and platforms provide areas where rabbits can survey their surroundings.
Rabbits require hiding places for when they are startled, and containers full of soil to practice their digging skills. There are now a huge variety of specific bunny toys available – for more information talk to one of our team.
Due to their sociable nature, pet rabbits should be kept in pairs – if you have any concerns about the possibility of a pair of rabbits leading to lots of little rabbits, please talk to us about neutering.
People often think that the perfect companion for their rabbit is a guinea pig – this can be risky as rabbit’s can often bully guinea pigs and this is an easy way for disease to spread.
It is incredibly important to make sure your rabbit interacts with people from a young age. Being familiar with humans will help your pet develop into a confident and friendly adult rabbit. It is also important to remember, rabbits are not used to being lifted of carried and this can be distressing for them – try and interact with your pet on ground level wherever possible.
It is crucial to feed your rabbit correctly to maintain their digestive health and avoid dental problems.
A rabbit’s teeth grow continuously at a rate of 2mm per week. Therefore, they must chew enough fibre to prevent the overgrowth of teeth and any health complications that can follow.
It is a common misconception that Muesli style feed provides a balanced diet – rabbits tend to pick out the tastiest bits and leave some of the most nutritionally valuable food behind. In order to avoid this, feed your rabbit quality pellet food, as this is the most nutritious.
Your rabbit should also have access to hay and grass to provide essential fibre and a variety of fresh vegetables should be offered daily.
A safe and cosy hutch is the perfect place for your rabbit to bed down but this needs to be accompanied by a spacious run. This run should allow your rabbit room to complete at least 3 full hops and stand up comfortably on their back legs.
Rabbits can also pick up parasites, such as ear mites and fleas, which can easily be treated. Grooming your rabbit, cleaning their hutch regularly and keeping their fur clean and dry is essential to avoid ‘fly strike’, which is a potentially fatal condition.
Our nurses are always on hand to give advice and information on all aspects of your rabbit’s healthcare, for further information call us today or book an appointment to see one of our nursing team.
