CARING FOR YOUR RABBIT
· Rabbits can be kept indoors or outdoors provided they are protected from the extremes of heat and cold. They are extremely sensitive to heatstroke and temperatures above 26ºC should be avoided. 18-22º C is optimum.
· If the hutch or cage is made of wire, ensure that at least half of the floor area is covered with towelling, plexiglass or wood to prevent foot trauma and a condition called "sore hocks". A concealed area is also important to allow the rabbit to feel secure.
· Rabbits can be trained to use a litter box and this should be changed daily to prevent urine scalding.
