4 Easy Tips to Care For Your Pet Rabbit From Waipahu’s Pet Doctors, Ewa, Hawaii

Do you have a pet rabbit? Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital has some tips on how to take care of your beloved furry friend! Their veterinarian specialists provide exceptional pet care services for a range of different animals, including rabbits, and genuinely love caring for animals of all sizes.

Here are some useful tips to make sure your rabbit enjoy a long and healthy life:

  1. Rabbits Should Live Indoors: Domestic rabbits are not used to living outdoors and should not be left outside unattended. The sight or even the sound of a predator can make them feel stressed and may even trigger a heart attack. Create a comfortable space for your rabbit inside your home to keep it safe.
  2. Spay/Neuter Your Rabbit: If you have two rabbits, you should definitely make sure that they are spayed or neutered before you house them together. This will also make sure they are less territorial and will encourage better litter box habits.
  3. Bunny Proof Your Home: Make sure that all electrical wiring is out of reach and outlets are covered. Buy cord protectors to stop your rabbit from chewing them. Provide them with special rabbit chew toys. Keep them away from other pets when you let them roam around.
  4. Provide Them With The Correct Food: The majority of a rabbit’s diet will be Timothy hay, which they should have an unlimited supply of. Limit extra sugary foods like bananas, grapes, raisins. Even carrots should be limited. Instead provide leafy, dark green vegetables like collard greens, spinach, celery, and dandelion greens.

These are just a few tips on how to properly take care of your rabbit. To find out even more information, visit Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital, and their veterinarians would be happy to help.
