Rabbit Care

The most important thing you can do for your rabbit is to be an educated, responsible owner. In order to do this, you need to be as prepared, in advance, as much as possible.  While it’s true that rabbits are very intelligent, like all animals – they still cannot speak; therefore you have to know what they need, how often they need it, and what to look out for along the way.

In addition to providing the essentials such as their nutritional needs and housing, they rely on you for providing their grooming needs, and taking care of preventing and treating all health-care related issues. Furthermore, they must consistently have basic health checks; including but not limited to kit care and making well-informed decisions regarding spaying/neutering.  The costs of all of these things can vary greatly, depending on the number of rabbits, what breeds you have, and what their individual needs are.
