b.Caring for your Rabbit

Here’s a short list of the nicest things you can do for your bunny:

Get him neutered! He’ll be calmer, cleaner, smell better, and live longer.  Trust me; you’ll like him much better if he’s fixed.

Change his water every day, and keep his water and food bowls clean.  Bunnies essentially have no immune systems, so moldy bowls can make them very sick.

-  Give him unlimited amounts of fresh, clean grass hay.

Clean his litterbox often. He’ll eat more hay out of a clean box and be more willing to hang out there if it’s clean.

Let him out of his pen when you’re home. Both you and he will be happier if he is allowed to interact with you and become part of the family.

Feed him rabbit food, not people food, and keep the treats to a minimum.

Brush him often, especially when he’s shedding.  He’ll ingest any hair he licks off himself, and if the hay he eats doesn’t force it through, he can die from a hairball stuck in his intestine.

NEVER leave him alone outside.

- On hot days, be sure he has a nice cool spot in the shade and plenty of fresh water.
