Rabbits can make wonderful pets – quiet, clean, inquisitive, entertaining and responsive.
The main keys to good health are:
- feed a correct diet that is high in fibre – this will help to prevent many of the common diseases
- have regular veterinary check-ups, during these check-ups make sure you discuss when to come back for your rabbits next vaccination and ask for advice about flea control, the main insect transmitting myxomatosis.
- vaccinate your rabbit regularly
- have your rabbit neutered (especially females)
Your rabbit will give you many years of companionship and rewarding pet ownership, if cared for properly.
