Make sure you find a vet who has a lot of
experience with rabbits.They are
not cats or dogs and need to be treated by a vet who knows about rabbit
Chewing and Digging
A fact of life, your rabbit will chew and
dig.Its instinctive.You cant stop it so give them things to
chew on that you dont mind getting ruined.Examples are: branches, non-toxic blocks, door mats, a
slinky, etc.Make sure you keep
electrical cords and other dangerous items completely out of your rabbits
Rabbits are very hygienic animals.They clean themselves all the time.They also can not throw up if they get a
hairball.Therefore, you have to
brush them regularly.
This is a condition where the rabbits front
teeth dont wear down properly and keep growing.You will either have to have them trimmed regularly by a vet
or have them removed.
These are small pellets that the rabbit poops
and eats.Dont be alarmed.Its normal.They contain vital nutrients.Weird, but you cant argue with nature.
Definitely.With a little patience you can teach your rabbit to do his business
in a litter box.The rabbit might
dictate to you where he wants to go.If this is the case, it is easiest to put the box there with some
poops in it.
Should I keep my rabbit inside or outside?
Rabbits are sensitive to heat and cold.It is best to be kept inside.Youll have a better relationship with a
house bunny anyway.
Can rabbits live around other pets?
This depends on the rabbit and the other
pet.Youll have to try and
see.Keep a very watchful eye,
though.Dont get a rabbit if you have
a ferret.Ferrets sometimes eat
Can I pick my rabbit up?
Again, this depends on the rabbit.Some hate it, others put up with it, and
a few like it.Start young, so they
get used it.If your rabbit hates
it (this is scary for rabbits), you might be better of respecting it and
getting down on his level to interact with him.
Can rabbits wear leashes?
Yes.There are small animal leashes that rabbits can wear.Again this will be something the rabbit
will have to get used to.
