Rabbit Health

Whilst rabbits are generally healthy creatures, they can become ill from time-to-time. As an owner, your rabbits rely on you to keep them as healthy and as free from pain as possible. As well as ensuring that their hutch and run are clean, and that they have a nutritious, balanced diet, good owners will check that their rabbits are healthy each day, and give them a more thorough examination a few times a week.

It's important to keep an eye on your pets' health

Although this sounds difficult, as an owner you will gradually build up a good idea of how your rabbits behave and what they look like when they are happy and healthy. This section of the guide provides detail on some of the key problems that owners should be on the lookout for, but, as always, if you think that there is something seriously wrong with your pet it’s best to take them to the vet as soon as possible.

I adopted two rabbits about 4 months ago from a local Humane Society. The two bonded immediately and love each other a LOT but they stay away from me a LOT. It is hard to groom them - they are molting now and allow me only to pet their heads. They both panic/hate to be picked up and I do so only in necessity. How do I get they to trust me? I know they both have been abused in some way in the past and I am patient with them. They are 2 &1/2 and 3&1/2 years old. Cathie
