Rabbits can be a cute pet and rewarding pet to raise. They also, unfortunately, may require veterinary care from professionals knowledgeable about rabbit health and treatments. At Apollo Animal Hospital located in Surrey, BC, our experienced British Columbia team knows the ins and outs of providing medical care to rabbits. Our “veterinarian near me” is here to help.
Tips for Caring for Rabbits
Avoid allowing your rabbit to be outdoors unattended, as they might run away or get attacked by other animals. When roaming around the interior of your home, make accessible areas bunny-proof from plants, electrical outlets, wiring, etc.
Your rabbit's cage should have plenty of room for stretching, standing, and moving around. Also, make sure your pet gets enough exercise.
Veterinary Service for Small Animals
When you have questions or concerns about your rabbit's health, schedule a visit, so our vet can provide a routine wellness examination to check your pet’s current state of health.
Even if your rabbit seems to be in good health, a yearly wellness exam is recommended to determine any potential issues so that they can be addressed before they cause too much damage.
Some of the situations to be aware of when you bring your pet to the vet include:
● Any type of wound caused by a bite from another rabbit, a cat, or a dog, has the potential to cause an infection.
● A fall from a high height can lead to a variety of complications requiring medical attention. If a fall should occur, observe your rabbit closely for signs such as limping, bleeding, a change in his normal behavior, or he or she is having difficulty breathing.
● A fracture to a rabbit's front or hind legs may need vet care. This is a possibility if the rabbit falls from an elevated area.
