USEFUL TIPS FOR NEW RABBIT OWNERS
Recently, we’ve been receiving inquiries from new rabbit owners about how to care for their pet rabbits. It’s truly exciting to welcome a rabbit into your family and we are definitely here to help. Here’s some useful tips we hope to share with all new owners out there:
1. Don’t get deceived by the full bowl of pellets or yogurt treats from ill-informed pet shops. Focus on a fibrous diet including unlimited hay, small amount of quality pellets and fresh leafy greens.
2. Rabbits are intellectual, smart and super trainable pets! Think of them as a dog rather than a hamster. They can be litter-trained, disciplined, and taught to roam safely without supervision.
3. If your rabbit is unsterilized, plan for its sterilization when it is full grown (>8 months). A sterilized rabbit is not only happier but is also healthier and will live a longer life!
4. Instead of asking petshops or online platforms for answers, bring your rabbit to a savvy vet for a wellness check! The advice will be much more professional and credible.
5. Rabbit is cute but never rush to get a second one. Make sure you are providing accurate care for your current, sterilize it and have sufficient ‘rainy day’ funds before acquiring another.
