Do You Own a Cute Bunny Rabbit? Best Bunny Care Practices
We were surprised to find out some important facts about proper rabbit nutrition. We love giving bunnies treats and behavioral enrichment while we are taking care of them. If your going away we would love to spend time with your little critters : )
We came across this wonderful resource for Bunny owners. Visit The Bunny Bunch. They are a non-profit Bunny No Kill Rescue out of Southern California.They have A LOT of great information all Bunny owners and care takers should know.
~Find a local Vet in your area who provides bunny care (Rabbits are considered “exotic” so not all Veterinarians will take care for them.)
When our Lulu was sick we had to call four different Vet offices to be able to get her seen the same day. We also had to drive across town but we got great service. It is important to build that relationship before your bunny needs care. Our regular Veterinarian for our girls wouldn’t care for our bunny.
~Rabbits nails need to be trimmed every 4-6 weeks
~Check Ears Regularly for Infection (You want clean, clear ears without any smells)
~Make sure to keep an eye out for Black (fleas) or White Flakes (Mites) in their fur.
~Rabbits teeth are always growing so it is important to have chew toys and treats to help keep them down.
~ Fresh Veggies should be given daily along with Hay (no cedar chips they are dangerous)
~Clean Water should always be available
~Rabbits can be trained to go potty in a litter boxA great resource for daily, weekly,monthly and yearly rabbit care guidelines can be found on this site. AAHA The Standard for Veterinary Excellence
We would be delighted to provide bunny care while your away.
