Description:

Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world. 
 There are many other species of rabbit, and these, along with pikas and hares, make up the order Lagomorpha. The male is called a buck and the female is a doe; a young rabbit is a kitten or kit.

Rabbits are herbivores that feed by grazing on grass, forbs, and leafy weeds. In consequence, their diet contains large amounts of cellulose, which is hard to digest. Rabbits solve this problem via a form of hindgut fermentation. They pass two distinct types of feces: hard droppings and soft black viscous pellets, the latter of which are known as caecotrophs and are immediately eaten (a behaviour known as coprophagy). Rabbits reingest their own droppings (rather than chewing the cud as do cows and numerous other herbivores) to digest their food further and extract sufficient nutrients.

Rabbits graze heavily and rapidly for roughly the first half-hour of a grazing period (usually in the late afternoon), followed by about half an hour of more selective feeding. In this time, the rabbit will also excrete many hard fecal pellets, being waste pellets that will not be reingested. If the environment is relatively non-threatening, the rabbit will remain outdoors for many hours, grazing at intervals. While out of the burrow, the rabbit will occasionally reingest its soft, partially digested pellets; this is rarely observed, since the pellets are reingested as they are produced. Reingestion is most common within the burrow between 8 o'clock in the morning and 5 o'clock in the evening, being carried out intermittently within that period.

  • Must “rabbit proof” all areas in the rabbit’s environment to prevent injuries and escape.
  • Young rabbits up to 6 months of age: quality alfalfa-based pellets – ¼ to ½ cups per day – and unlimited amounts of alfalfa and grass hay, such as oat, timothy, or brome
  • Adults over 6 months of age: quality timothy hay-based pellets- ¼ to ½ cups per day – and unlimited amounts of grass hay

  • Supplement with small amounts of apples, pears, peaches, carrots or green bell peppers as treats
  • Limit or avoid high-sugar, high-carbohydrate treats like bananas, raisins, and yogurt drops
  • Fresh water daily
  • Large cage, wire or solid bottom, preferably indoors
  • Place the cage in a quiet location and maintain a temperature of 50°F to 75°F (10°C to 24°C).
  • To prevent heat stress, avoid temperatures exceeding 85°F (29.5°C).
  • “Rabbit proofing” involves making a room escape-proof, covering electrical cords with conduit to prevent shock, and removing lead paint, toxic plants, and other hazards
  • Supervised ”rabbit-proofed” environment large enough to explore and get exercise
  • Litter box with pelleted or shredded recycled newspaper or aspen shavings (Avoid shavings made of pine or cedar shavings, which can irritate the respiratory tract). The litter box should be cleaned daily.

  • Consult a veterinarian with experience treating exotic companion mammals if you have any questions or concerns about your rabbit’s health
  • Annual fecal examination for parasites
  • Spaying and neutering as early as possible at sexual maturity to help prevent uterine cancer later in life in females and urine marking behavior in males
