A Rabbit’s instinct is to hide any symptoms of illness at any given time. As a rabbit owner, you need to keep a watchful eye on your pet and ensure it is eating, drinking, pooping, and peeing regularly. If you notice some slight changes in its behaviour, it is important to call a rabbit-savvy vet immediately.

It is also necessary to send your rabbit in for regular veterinary checkups.

Rabbit Hutches

For your pet rabbit, you will need a suitable home that’s roomy and protected from the elements. Rabbits generally like to live in pairs so you’ll need to factor this when choosing their home because you will need to ensure both rabbits have plenty of space to explore and hide.  Your pet’s hutch should be completely secure so they can’t escape or be put at risk from predators. Ensure the primary location of your rabbit hutch is not isolated from you and your family.

Grooming Your Rabbit

Rabbits are generally regarded as clean animals because they wash frequently. However,  as a rabbit owner, you need to make sure your rabbit is groomed regularly.  This is essential because rabbits go through shedding cycles a couple of times a year and need to be brushed to remove all the excess fur so they don’t ingest it and get serious digestive issues.

Clipping your rabbit’s nails regularly is also important because long nails can get snagged on things or they can curl into your rabbit’s paw.

 Your Rabbits’ Unique Language and Behavior

Rabbits use their ears, tail, nose and body to communicate. Their body language is unique indeed. By catering to your rabbit’s natural tendencies, you can build a trusting relationship with your rabbit.
