When to Take A Rabbit to The Vet

I’m one of those annoying people that always tell people to take their rabbit to the vet at the slightest sign of ill health. I know it’s annoying. I know the vet is expensive. But also, I’m not a vet. I’d hate to give advice that didn’t include a vet visit and then find out … Read more

Do Rabbits Need Vet Checkups?

I’m kind of on the fence about vet checkups. My rabbits do get vet checkups, but if i wasn’t also having them vaccinated, I probably wouldn’t religiously stick to a one-yearly checkup.

Do Bunnies Get Sick Often?

I don’t think bunnies get sick any more or less often than other pets, but like all animals, some are more prone to illness than others, and, er, there’s not a lot you can do about it. Here in the UK (or at least near me) vet care for rabbits is pretty good, and often … Read more

Why Is My Rabbit Sneezing?

How long do house rabbits live?

What I found so incredible when researching this article was how the numbers have changed in the past, say, 20 years. Five used to be considered a great age for rabbits, and now it’s extremely common to see healthy ten-year-old rabbits on Reddit and Facebook groups. We love to see it. Do house rabbits live … Read more

Yes, lilies are poisonous to rabbits BUT not to the extent that they are to cats. It’s not actually clear what it is in lilies that caused such severe (like, fatal) kidney failure in cats, but it seems pretty feline-specific. BUT Do NOT encourage your rabbit to eat lilies.

Is it worth insuring a rabbit?

Let me just start by saying that I don’t have pet insurance for my rabbits. Not for any reason other than…I don’t really think it’s necessary for me. At the moment. Sometimes I have a quick look at quotes, and then decide against it. Whether or not you insure your pet doesn’t make you a … Read more

How to care for a rabbit with head tilt

I’ve written this post because head tilt is pretty common in rabbits, and it can be very scary for rabbits. There’s not much information out there that outlines the best ways to keep rabbits contained, safe, and fairly clean.
