Size requirements: A pair of rabbits require a minimum of 45 square foot. They need to have access to this at all times. This is not as big as it sounds please ask for an example.
Diet: Rabbits diet should consist of 80-90% HAY. Each rabbit should be fed a small handful of rabbit excel twice a day. This should be scattered throughout the environment to encourage natural foraging behaviour. It can also be handfed which will form a good bond with the rabbit. For more information on the reasons for this please ask. They can also have fresh Veg every other day, however there are many veg and fruit they cannot have! Please ask for a list of appropriate food types.
Vaccinations: Rabbits need regular vaccinations against myxomatosis and VHD. Rabbits from us at Martlesham come fully vaccinated.
Company: Rabbits should be kept as pairs or more. They are very sociable animals and would live in large groups naturally.
Enrichment: Rabbits can become bored in there environment so there are many ways to enrich the accommodation. Things like plastic plant pots stuffed with hay and treats. Rolling hay balls. Branches from fruit trees. Chewy toys. Tunnels. If you would like to get more ideas please ask a member of staff.
