Rabbits are usually more needy than you would think. Most people consder them as easy pets for beginners, families, and children. However, the fact is, you most certainlyneed to be more than ready to accept one, and the responsibilities that come along with them. So many rabbits suffer neglect because there are people who just do not understand what they need. So, what are the basic needs for a pet rabbit? You need to know as much as you can before taking on the responsibility.
Here are some things that you need to understand: They are not good for children as they are prey animals, and very skitty, therefore, they will bite and scratch when picked up if they do not like it. You need to clean them out and check over them every day. Furthermore, they need big spaces, more than one rabbit, fresh hay every day, and for them to be neutered. Dont forget vaccinations, vet checks and treatment, fresh vegetables every day, and specific rabbit food pellets. As rabbits can live for 10-12 years, that can be a real challenge! Make sure you are up for it.
