Rabbits as Pets

Filed under: Small Animals — admin @ 3:11 pm

Rabbits make very sucessful household pets. While it is true they can be kept outdoors with protection from the elements, most of the bunnies that live in this area are indoors in a hutch. They are given a lot of freedom when supervised, will usually return to a litter pan when necessary and are not allowed an opportunity to chew on their favorite item – electric wires. A life span of 8-10 years is common. OXBOW food is reccomended with the 15/23 blend used for the first 6 months and then BUNNY BASICS T afterwards. On occasion we have bunnies that have been neutered at a young age, making it easier to keep more than one bunny.
