Health and welfare
Get your rabbits neutered.
Check your rabbit for signs of illness or injury every day, and make sure this is done by someone else if you are away. Consult a vet immediately if you suspect that your rabbit is in pain, ill or injured.
Front teeth and nails should be checked at least once a week as these can grow quickly. Only a vet should correct overgrown or misaligned teeth.
Take your rabbits for a routine health check at your vets at least once each year. Get your rabbits vaccinated regularly against myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD), as advised by your vet. Only use medicines that have been specifically recommended for your individual rabbit by a vet. Some medicines used for other animals can be very dangerous to rabbits.
Ensure your rabbits' coats are kept in good condition by grooming them regularly. If you are unsure how to groom your rabbits properly seek advice from a pet care specialist.
Make sure your rabbits can be identified, ideally via a microchip.
