***ATTENTION -- I DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT WILD RABBITS AND I CAN NOT HELP YOU WITH WILD RABBIT QUESTIONS*** Please do not ask me questions about your pet rabbits if you have no intention of taking them to a vet. I DO NOT CONDONE THE BREEDING OF RABBITS THAT ARE NOT PUREBRED AND PEDIGREED. ACCIDENTLY LITTERS OR RABBITS INTENDED FOR MEAT ARE ACCEPTABLE. *** I WILL NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS RELATED TO BACKYARD BREEDING. IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT BEING A RESPONSIBLE BREEDER I WILL HELP YOU. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME ABOUT BREEDING RABBITS TO SELL TO PET STORES, TO USE AS PETS ETC. *** *** DO NOT HOUSE UNALTERED MALE AND FEMALE RABBITS TOGETHER, EVER! THIS IS WHERE BABIES COME FROM*** I WILL NO LONGER GIVE ADVICE TO PEOPLE WHO ARE CARELESS AND THINK THAT IT IS OK TO PUT 2 RABBITS TOGETHER WITHOUT KNOWING THEIR SEX*** Rabbits are not toys. They are living creatures. I believe that people are responsible for their animals. If you can't afford a vet, in my opinion, you can't afford a rabbit.

I am not an expert on wild rabbits, only domesticated rabbits. I can answer questions regarding habitats, behavior, diet, health, pairing/bonding - pretty much anything having to do with owning a rabbit.

I can answer questions around the welfare of pet rabbits, basic health queries including gut stasis, diet worries, bonding questions and the proper welfare standards around housing rabbits (i.e. no wire floors, no small cages and they should be kept in properly bonded de-sexed pairs in very large enclosures). I cannot answer showing questions nor complex breeding issues as I do not agree with either, seeing the other end of the story in the world of rabbit rescue.

I've lived with companion rabbits for more than 35 years, and consider them members of my family. I can answer any questions about the biology and health of rabbits, from the commonplace to the unusual. But please note:

RULE #1:
THE INTERNET IS NOT THE PLACE TO SEEK HELP IN AN EMERGENCY.

  • If your rabbits is LETHARGIC
  • If your rabbit is NOT EATING
  • If your rabbit is PHYSICALLY INJURED (including broken bones)
  • If your baby rabbit has DIARRHEA
...it is an EMERGENCY.

Find a rabbit vet at www.rabbit.org/vet for immediate help, and don't risk your bunny's life by spending time asking questions online! If you can't get in touch with your vet, read these Emergency Sick Bunny Instructions.

If you have found a wild baby rabbit, please read these EMERGENCY INSTRUCTIONS FOR WILD BABY RABBITS and then use this link to FIND A LOCAL WILDLIFE REHABILITATOR who can give you the right advice.


RULE #2:
Help me help you! Please make your subject line informative if you have an urgent question .....
