Rabbit health requires vigilant monitoring, as they can hide illnesses.
Preventative measures like spaying or neutering are essential, and finding a rabbit-savvy veterinarian is crucial.
Rabbit-proofing the home is necessary for their safety, and proper handling, and avoiding ear-grabbing is crucial.
For more information on rabbits, resources like the House Rabbit Society and local veterinarians can provide guidance.
