Bringing your new bunny home? There are a few things you should have as a pet or as a breeder for show.
You'll need a home
Our cages are from Martin's Cages
They tend to have more head space and their floors are raised higher so when the tray is pulled out, it doesn't catch their toes.
You may also wish to have a play yard, roaming the entire house you might find some things chewed that you didn't expect, you may also find that your bunny will not interact with you as often this way.
Our rabbits all drink from a ball style water bottle.
We get wooden blocks in the toddler section at Walmart, big cat toy balls and other toys at the Dollar Tree.
Our travel carriers are from Pointer Hill.
To bring your pet bunny home, you will need a cat carrier or box, with a towel or hay on the floor so it's not slippery. They need a surface to grip.
You'll need food
We feed Purina Show, it comes in a 50 lb bag which won't help if you just have one pet bunny. Please do not use the junk from Walmart, it is not good, fresh feed. They also do not need fruits or veggies and none before they are 6 months old. If you're giving any as treats, keep them to a minimum as they are not able to vomit
Timothy or mixed grass hay will help with their gut and with boredom, not all rabbits will eat their hay.
What to keep on hand
Rabbits can get Wool Block when molting or just about to molt (remember, they cannot vomit). Good to keep cat hairball remover on hand, not the seafood flavored kind. Cat Lax from a vet is a great one.
They need their nails clipped about every 6 weeks, we use the cat clippers from the Dollar Tree, in fact, we have several all over our house and car! Please make sure we show you how to do their nails when you pick up your bunny.
We also keep a product called Critical Care on hand, if they stop eating for some reason (they will also stop drinking if they are not eating) it is important to get fluids into them first, keep an eyedropper around just in case it's ever needed
