Top rabbit care tips from your Long Island exotic pet clinic

  • Provide a safe enclosure with much space

  • Lots of hay and water

  • The right greens like dandelion and kale and fiber pellets

  • Playful stimulation

  • Regular grooming and nail clipping

  • Routine exams by a rabbit pet vet

  • Cardboard, paper bags, and a comfortable mat to play on when in the cage

What your rabbit pet clinic says not to do

  • Do not give starchy veggies like carrots on a regular basis

  • Do not let the water get stale

  • Do not put rabbits in the same room as dogs

  • Do not leave the rabbit cooped up for long periods of time

  • Donot let males and females room together

  • Do not walk up to the rabbit from the front because they cannot see well in that direction

Remember to use a board certified pet rabbit hospital for emergencies

The SPCA says that you should always keep an eye out for an appetite in your rabbit. If they stop eating or change habits suddenly, then you may need to take them to a pet rabbit hospital for a checkup. A routine exam every six months to a year is recommended for optimal health.
