Home Care

Once your rabbit is out of the hospital and back at home, it is important to maintain the treatment protocol regimented by your veterinarian.
Good hygiene is very important. Dietary therapy is critical. Provide the diet recommended by your veterinarian, with an emphasis on fresh greens and hay.

Preventive Care

Make sure you feed your rabbit a balanced diet of some pellets with lots of fresh greens and hay. Proper digestive tract health requires grasses and high-quality long-stemmed hay. Don’t overfeed any cereal such as bread, breakfast cereals or crackers, sweets or large amounts of fruit. Minimize obesity and encourage routine exercise. Minimize stressful conditions.
