If you are thinking of getting pet rabbits, it is important that you learn as much as you can about the best rabbit housing, feeding supplies, and other important rabbit care basics so you can make sure your new pets live healthy and long lives. First off, you need to purchase a cage for your rabbit. Rabbits enjoy being in a large enclosed space that provides them with plenty of room to move around, exercise, and stretch out their little legs.
The best cages for rabbits are wire-mesh cages with doors that open on one side so they can enter and exit the cage easily but not leave the cage. Rabbit’s are chewers and if you do not want to see your new pet chewed to pieces after she has been let out of her cage, purchase a “crate” for her. A simple dog crate can be purchased at your local pet store or even online at various retailers and e-commerce stores. It is recommended that you only purchase a cage made from solid wood for safety reasons. Other options for a cage include a plastic “cage” that can be placed in a corner of a room or inside of a playpen for young children who are responsible for caring for the rabbit while you are at work.
It is important that you give your rabbit fresh food every day, because they cannot chew their own fur. A good rule of thumb is to feed your pet one bag of food per day while they are at home and another bag per day while they are in their outdoor home. Be careful to not over-feed your pets because they will eventually suffer from nutritional deficiencies if they receive too much or the wrong kind of nutrition. The proper vet care for your pet rabbit is also advised so they do not become ill and needlessly lose their hair because of an illness.
