Basic Rabbit Care
How to take care of your rabbit!
Raising a rabbit is rewarding and fun.
- hay - it's the single most important thing in a rabbit's diet
- alfalfa pellets (no more than 1/8 cup per day) - provide basic nutrients
- fresh vegetables (in moderation) - greens help keep them hydrated
- WATER - EXTREMELY IMPORTANT
Rabbits don't always enjoy being picked up. They are generally ground-dwelling animals. If your rabbit fights or struggles, gently place it safely back on the ground. When holding your rabbit, keep them close to your body and always support the hind quarters.
NEVER let your rabbit jump from your arms because it can seriously injure itself.
