We had a great turn out for Rabbit Awareness Week this year. This year the topic was #buddiesforbunnies.
The aim of the campaign was to raise awareness of the needs of rabbits to live with companions. Owners of single rabbits were encouraged to consider suitable friends for them by re-homing from welfare centres. Cinque Ports Vets were offering free Happy Hopper Checks to make sure our bunny friends were happy and healthy. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the initiative.
Don’t forget your rabbit is at a greater risk from Flystrike and Myxomatosis this time of year.
Make sure your bunny’s vaccinations are up to date to help protect them and remember to check and clean your bunny daily. This helps prevent attracting flies to their hutch which will lay their eggs on your rabbit. Old net curtains are great for placing over the mesh of their hutches to help keep flies away from them.
