Accomodation

We believe that all rabbits should live in a home that suits all of their complex needs. With our top tips, you can help ensure that your rabbits will live in a suitable environment and be happy bunnies.  

Top tips for your rabbits' home:

  • Rabbits are very active animals and need the opportunity to hop, run, jump, dig, stand fully upright on their back legs and stretch out fully when lying down. 

  • It is important to provide a secure living environment for your rabbit which is large enough for your rabbits to exercise and stand up fully on their back legs without their ears touching the roof. 

  • Rabbits should have a large living area and a secure shelter where they can rest, feel safe and are protected from predators and extremes of weather. You should ensure that all areas of your rabbits living area are well ventilated, dry and draught-free. Living in draughty, damp, hot, poorly ventilated or dirty environments can cause suffering and illness. 

  • Rabbits are a prey species, so they feel the need to hide in secure places, away from sights and smells of predators (e.g. foxes/cats/dogs/ferrets/birds of prey). 

     

  • Rabbits are very intelligent and inquisitive, if they get bored, their health may suffer so they will require daily exercise opportunities to stay fit and healthy.  

  • You should provide your rabbit with enough bedding to keep warm. Bedding should be safe to eat, e.g. dust-free straw/hay.  

  • Rabbits need constant access to suitable toileting places. If you are providing litter trays, you should use newspaper, hay/straw, shredded paper and/or paper-based non-clumping, non-expanding cat litter. Toilet areas should be separate to sleeping areas. You could try placing a hay rack over the litter tray to encourage them to eat hay, as most rabbits like to eat and poop at the same time.

  • You should regularly clean their housing and toilet areas, this is especially important during warmer weather to reduce the risk of fly strike.

  • The main priority is to provide all rabbits with a large, safe, secure, hazard-free environment for them to live in.
