Summertime safety for your rabbit
Helpful tips from the British Rabbit Council

With the warm weather upon us and promises of a hot Summer to come, The British Rabbit Council - keen to support the welfare of the pet rabbit - offers the following tips for ensuring a rabbit's comfort in hot weather.

  • Always make sure that your rabbit has fresh water by replacing it in the morning and evening.
  • Make sure your rabbit has shade to rest in.
  • Take extra care with cleanliness - in particular keep the toilet area of your rabbit's hutch clean so the flies have little to interest them.
  • Again, to discourage flies, keep the rabbit's eyes, nose and 'vent area' (bottom!) clean and free from mucus or droppings.
  • Extra grooming will not only make your rabbit feel more comfortable but will help deter flies.

Pet Owners are welcome to contact The British Rabbit Council’s Newark Head Office at 01636 676042 for guidance.
