Rabbits and Flystrike

Rabbits and Flystrike

Rabbits need to be protected during the spring and summer against Flystrike. Flystrike is a nasty attack from the common blowfly which lands on the rabbit laying its eggs under the rabbit’s skin, and therefore being severely injured by hatching out maggots.

Rabbit Diet

Rabbit Diet

Fibre is the most important aspect of a rabbit’s diet and should come from good quality hay and grass. Hay is excellent for the digestive system and also helps wear down the teeth which constantly grow in rabbits.

Rabbits and the Environment

Rabbits and the Environment

Rabbits are very energetic animals that require plenty of space to run, jump, hop, dig and stretch around. They need to have toys and such in their environment to entertain them as they are intelligent animals, but also places to hide such as tubes and a hutch when they feel scared or threatened.

Other Rabbits

Other Rabbits

Rabbits are naturally very social animals and prefer to be kept with another rabbit than on their own. Rabbits left alone can develop abnormal behaviours.
