Rabbits make good pets. They are clean, docile and intelligent.
Rabbits can be kept as pets indoors or outdoors, they make little noise and do not smell if regularly cleaned out.
Basic needs are a large hutch, exercise area, wholesome food especially good quality hay and fresh water daily, plus plenty of greens.
The decision to buy a rabbit should not be taken lightly, there are many different breeds and sizes, please do plenty of research before purchasing.
When purchasing your rabbit remember it is very stressful for it when leaving other litter mates so give plenty of time for your new bunny to settle in. Handle your new rabbit gently with no noise or background noise. It takes time but with the patience they will become your best friend and trust you completely.
Rabbits need to have 3 vaccinations per year, one is combined Myxomatosis & RVHD1 and 2 weeks apart is another vaccination called RVHD2. E-Cuniculli is another worry for pet owners and seems to be increasing. It can cause head tilt, cataracts and paralysis, regular worming of Panacur can prevent this.
Remember rabbits can live to 10-12 years nowadays so remember 'A Pet is For Life'.
Most people purchase a rabbit from a pet shop or a breeder (British Rabbit Council have many contacts for Breeders in your area), it is wise to view your new baby rabbit from a reputable breeder.
When choosing don't pick one with the prettiest markings, you need to study them for a while. Do they interact with their other bunny friends? You often see their temperament just by spending time watching them. Ask to sit with them, often a friendly inquisitive one might come over to you. The one that stays at back often is often a little more nervous.

"Just what we were looking for... Sandy offers the best Rabbit boarding facilities I know of and I'm so glad we found Spindlehay.
Large enclosures, all the food you could think of and the utmost professional care. Going on holiday is stressful enough yet knowing they were in good hands made it truly worry free.
Pom Bear and Tikka came home like they'd been on holiday themselves!"
