Rabbits make wonderful pets. They are fluffy and soft, respond well to handling, and can learn to use a litter box. There are even different breeds of rabbit! For example, some have straight ears, some have floppy ears, some are normal size, and some are dwarf sized. Rabbits can live for 5 - 10 years. Rabbits have very strong hind legs and sharp claws. They also have a very light skeleton. If you handle your bunny improperly, he may kick his legs so hard that he breaks his back! When you carry him, always support his rear end. If he struggles, put him down, until he is quiet.

If You Choose a Pet Rabbit

An altered pet will reduce the risk of that famous bunny reproduction and will prevent certain health and behavioral problems. In the United States, bunnies do not typically require vaccines, but be sure to check with your veterinarian to confirm the protocol in your area. Bunnies do, however, require vaccines in the United Kingdom. They always need annual check ups and fecal tests for parasites.

  • "LOVE Phoenix Veterinary Center! They are very caring and loving towards our little Ellie. Dr. Baldwin and Dr. Ware are wonderful! As well as all the staff too. It's a small office, you can hear everything, I always hear them talking kindly and gently to the animals in the treatment area. I hear them talking to other owners, explaining treatments and procedures. Always being friendly and respectful. They really care- they do follow up phone calls and emails, show concern when Ellie isn't feeling well, and even squeezed us in just before closing on a busy Saturday. They go above and beyond and we appreciate them very much.
    Ellie's has been in for routine vaccines, upset tummy, itchy allergies, and a dental with an extraction. And every time we are there, the entire staff are absolutely wonderful."
