Rabbit Rearing - Simple And Easy Tips To Help You Be An Informed Rabbit Owner In No Time
Not a lot of people choose to take care of bunnies, but rabbit owners know the joys of having these furry friends in their lives. Rabbit rearing is not a difficult and hard thing to learn. They are cute, cuddly, and can be affectionate if you take care of them. You just have to remember a few critical tips and points and you will be an expert at raising rabbits in no time.
Remember to always have food available for the rabbits. Hay (alfalfa hay for young ones, timothy hay for older rabbits), fruits and vegetables are good for them. Give them fruits like apples, melons and strawberries. Spinach, carrot and broccoli are good for them. However, don't change their food too often. Rabbits don't like it when they see new food too often, and may end up not eating it. This is bad for rabbit rearing. Provide food that is low in protein, except if you are giving it to a mother who is nursing young rabbits. Avoid feeding them cauliflower, as this can build up gas inside their stomachs. Make sure that cold, fresh water is readily available for them. Once in a while, give them treats such a carrots or rabbit treats that can be bought in pet shops.
Since you are taking care of the rabbit as a pet, do not deny them of fun! Give them toys to play with. Cat toys work great with rabbits, like balls that have noisy bells inside. Your bunny will play with this for hours. A chewing toy will not only help your rabbit get out of boredom but it will give him something to focus on, instead of chewing on your things. Letting your pet enjoy is a good rabbit rearing habit.
Give your rabbit enough space to live in. Make sure that the cage of your rabbit is spacious enough for it to move around. Pets do not like being caged in a space that is too small for them. It is best to get a cage that has an open room and a private, enclosed space. The open room should be something that has clear walls like wires so that you can watch your pet, and the enclosed space is a room for them to sleep. Your lock should be secure enough to prevent the rabbit from escaping, but easy enough for you to open in case of emergencies.
