Rabbit Advice

Following on behind cats and dogs, rabbits are the third most popular pet in the U.K. With a life expectancy of between 8-12 years it’s worth bearing in mind that they will be with you for the long haul.

 Rabbits really do come in all shapes and sizes but all have unique personalities and are noted for their intelligence and respond well to training.

Keeping your rabbit happy and healthy is really important so making sure they have regular health checks is recommended. Once you’ve registered your bunny with The Pet Vet there are a few things you should consider:

• Vaccinations to protect them from harmful illnesses

• Neutering to prevent unwanted diseases and pregnancies

• Check your bunny on a daily basis for any signs of illness or injury

• Flystrike is a very common disease that rabbits can suffer from when the weather is warm so check them twice a day for maggots or fly eggs
