Rabbits can make wonderful pets despite their initial shyness, and they can be quite playful once they've warmed up to you. They are social creatures and can live up to 12 years. At our clinic, we are committed to providing you with all the necessary resources to care for your bunny properly, including information on their diet, housing, behavior, and grooming needs.

What should I feed my rabbit?
To keep your rabbit healthy, it is important to provide them with a diet that consists mainly of grass hay, which can prevent digestive issues and hairballs. Additionally, green leafy vegetables like kale, lettuce, and spinach are good options, while commercial pellets and small portions of fruits like pineapple and berries can be given as treats. It is crucial to make sure that your rabbit has access to plenty of fresh water at all times.
How do I know if my rabbit is not feeling well?
Similar to cats and dogs, rabbits tend to conceal their discomfort even when they are unwell. Regular wellness checkups with your veterinarian can aid in the early detection and treatment of any issues before they become severe. However, pets can fall ill at any time of the year, so it's important to watch out for the following symptoms:
- High or low body temperature
- Loss of appetite
- Discharge from eyes and nose
- Bald patches
- Excessive drooling or sneezing
What type of care can you provide for my rabbit?
