Bunny Information

Rabbits are prey animals and frighten easily, they need specialist care from attentive and responsible adult  owners. Responsible ownership requires an understanding of your rabbit’s basic health needs.  Rabbits can suffer from health conditions that are unique to their species. Not all vets specialise in rabbit health, so it is important to find a bunny savvy vet or a vet that is willing to liaise with a bunny savvy vet.
