Rabbit Awareness Week 2015

IS YOUR RABBIT A HAPPY BUNNY? Hop-a-long to Your Local Veterinary Practice for Free Rabbit Health Checks

Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW) 2013 begins on 09thMay this year and Budget Vets will be showing its support by offering free rabbit health checks throughout the week!

This year the RAW campaign is focusing on rabbits’ diet and wellbeing, so Budget Vets practice will be offering free consultations to all rabbit owners in all branches. 

Peter Heathcote, Managing Director at Budget Vets said: “Rabbit Awareness Week is a very important annual campaign and we wanted to be part of the national activity by offering free rabbit health checks all week. We look forward to welcoming rabbit owners to our free health checks at the surgery, to ensure they are not only physically well, but also emotionally.”

Matt Brash, TV vet and RAW supporter, said: “This May, the focus is on raising awareness of rabbits’ dietary requirements including their need for a high fibre diet.  Many of the issues seen in practice can be prevented through proper diet and nutrition.  We are trying to educate owners about the diet and how, when fed correctly, this can improve the lifespan of the animal and decrease veterinary bills.  The good news is there are a number of easy ways in which we can help our pet rabbits to be happier and healthier.  With the support of the veterinary community and the pet retail sector, our primary aim is to educate owners in responsible rabbit ownership and improve the wellbeing of Britain’s third most popular pet.”

Budget Vets will be open for free rabbit health checks 9th - 17th May 2015 and can be contacted on 01633 855825.

We will also be offering 10% off our Rabbit packages to any rabbit any age! (usual proce £34.99)
