For over 20 years, San Diego House Rabbit Society has supported our community through educating about responsible rabbit care, spay/neuter and adoption. They share important tips for your rabbits’ health.
The Scoop on Poop
Cecal pellets (aka cecotropes) are a special food made by a bunny, just for a bunny. They are partially digested foods that are passed from the bunny and then reingested. You may not see bunny do this, but when she appears to be bathing her belly and she comes up chewing, she’s probably just taken up a pellet- do not be alarmed.
Is Your Rabbit Sick?
Rabbits are at the bottom of the food chain and in the wild, the weakest are the first to be preyed upon. Thus, rabbits instinctively hide illnesses and injuries to avoid detection by animals of prey. This may be a good survival tactic in the wild, but for domestic rabbits not so useful.
Get Your Rabbit Spayed or Neutered
Your rabbit needs to be spayed or neutered. There are several reasons why you should get your rabbit altered.
1) Curb rabbit overpopulation
2) Improve Behavior
3) Prevent reproductive cancers
4) Facilitate litter box training.
