It's almost upon us again, Rabbit Awareness Week 2014!   This year's theme - 'Change one thing...' What will you change to improve your rabbits' lives?

So far this year we have had a large number of young rabbits through our doors, including two does and their litters of kits. These rabbits require extra special care as coming into a sanctuary is a very stressful time for a rabbit, let alone one who has a litter of tiny babies to worry about too.

Feeding your rabbit…

Rabbits are herbivores and are designed to eat little and often. Rabbits have a very complex digestive system and any imbalance, no matter how minor, can cause illness. Rabbits under 16 weeks of age are especially susceptible to gut complaints as their digestive system is still getting used to solid food. Care needs to be taken when introducing any rabbit to a new food. When adopting or purchasing a rabbit be sure to feed the same type of food that…
