Raise your rabbit the right way!
Friendly and easy to care for, rabbits make ideal family pets. But how do you keep a pet rabbit happy and healthy? How can you tell if your rabbit is sick? What would you do if it were?
Raising a Healthy Rabbit explains all the essentials of caring for a rabbit, including choosing a rabbit for adoption, the proper way to pick up and carry a rabbit, and setting up the best housing. It also includes vital information on supplying proper nutrition (including when, what, and how much to feed your pet); performing daily, weekly, and monthly health care checks; recognizing and treating common health problems; and stocking a rabbit first-aid kit.
