A Place to Grieve the Loss of your Pet Rabbit

Every person handles grief from a pet differently.  After the initial shock of the death of your pet rabbit, you may feel a sense of pain, loss and even guilt.

Losing a pet is many times like losing a family member. Sometimes it even feels worse, as you provided  care, love and affection every day. I

How to Bond Pet Rabbits

How to Bond Pet Rabbits

My bunny Meadow was bonded for years to Cinnabun. They were truly best friends. Then Cinnabun passed away. Later, we fell in love with Blackberry and thought we would try to bond the 2. It was short-lived and Blackberry did not seem like the type of bunny who actually liked other bunnies. Now, months later, with my engagement, a new bunny, Bobby Carats, came to be a member of our family. Knowing what we know about Meadow, how loving he is, and how he has bonded before, we thought we’d give it another try.

Traveling with Your Pet Rabbit by Car

Traveling with Your Pet Rabbit by Car

Traveling with your rabbit in a car can be easy …or very stressful! Trips to the vet that are just a 10 to 20 minute drive can easily wear on your rabbit. Not a Head Rest but a Meads Rest! Meadow is not a rabbit who enjoys car travel. He gets very stressed by the ride to the vet and it takes him a good while and lots of rubs to relax again. I can see him panicking in the carrier, so when I am not driving, while good or bad, I let him

Traveling with your Pet Rabbit by Airplane

DECIDING TO FLY WITH YOUR PET RABBIT. When given the option to either subject my pet rabbit to a 24-hour drive or a 2.5-hour flight, I decided the flight was the “lesser of two evils”. My rabbit, Meadow does not do well in the car. Even on a 10 minute drive to the vet, he shakes and shutters as if he is having a mild heart-attack. So although I was nervous about the “unknowns” of how he would handle himself on a flight, I knew that he would never make the drive. Obviously, if

Grieving the Loss of Your Beloved Pet Rabbit

WHY DID MY PET RABBIT DIE? Rabbits are very fragile creatures. Although they have a longer lifespan (up to 12 years), they can become sick or die suddenly. Rabbits are prone to heart attacks, from coming in contact with a dog or cat, being scared suddenly, or from stress due to uncomfortable car rides. A good owner will know that rabbits take a lot of care and work, as they have sensitive systems and need just the right amount and type of food and water, and attention. Perhaps your rabbit died of old age.

Bunny gets his nails cut!

Poor Meadow. He really does NOT like to get his nails cut. Even though he knows I will let him shove his big fluffy head into the container of oats afterwards – LOL!  Lots of grunting and kicking.

I found a rabbit hit by a car. Now what?

Any rabbit hit by a car will 100% need to see a vet. In the meantime, keep the rabbit comfortable in a box, with some towels. Also put some grass or some type of lettuce (anything but iceberg) to nibble in there with her. Make sure the rabbit cannot jump out of the box. Bring it to a vet tomorrow and let them do a check-up. Also, now is a good time to start researching a rehab facility near you who may be able to care for the rabbit after the vet makes a

Say hello to A, E, I, O, U & Y!

We recently took in a family of orphaned wild baby rabbits. The 6 of them are 1 week old and teeny tiny (Note the size ratio on the photo below!) They need to be bottle fed a special formula for a few weeks, 2-3 times daily. Luckily, within a week or two, they will transition easily to greens.
