Rabbits are intelligent, affectionate and social animals that need daily interaction with humans or other rabbits. However, chewing is a rabbit’s favorite hobby, so make sure you home is rabbit proofed. Rabbits should be spayed or neutered by a veterinarian, which helps them live longer and become better companions.


Average Size

The average size of a rabbit is 12 inches in length.

Life Span

Up to 10+ years.

Feeding

Fresh food and water should always be available. Small amounts of vegetables and fruits can be given daily, such as pears, grapes, strawberries, dates, raisins, sprouts and carrots. Vegetable and fruits not eaten within 24 hours should be thrown away.

Many house plants are toxic and a rabbit should not eat grass treated with pesticides.

Use a High quality rabbit food containing a minimum of 12-16% protein and 2% fat and a maximum of 20% fiber.

Treats should not exceed 10% of total food intake. Do not feed chocolate, alcohol or caffeine; these are dangerous. Use clean, fresh, de-chlorinated water changed daily.

Housing

Rabbits acclimate well to average household temperatures; be cautious of extreme temperature change; habitat should never be in direct sunlight or in a drafty area. Habitats should be at least four times the size of the rabbit, escape proof with an area that has a solid surface; it is best to provide the largest habitat possible. Use baby gates or an indoor play yard during play time, while house training or if your house is not bunny proof.

1-2 inches of bedding should be placed in the habitat; proper bedding includes shavings and pelleted or recycled product; cedar-based bedding may cause harm and is not recommended.

Rabbits can be trained to use a litter box. Different types of small animals should not be housed together.

NOTES AND COMMENTS

Rabbits are most active during the day and prefer to be handled on the floor. They like to rub their chin on objects as a way of marking things. They also thump their legs to signal danger.

Rabbit’s noses constantly twitch so they can smell even the weakest scents. A male and female rabbit will produce offspring unless they are spayed or neutered.

Male rabbits should not be housed together.

Rabbits Molt or shed their coat, at least twice per year.
