if you have any concerns about your bunny’s health.

Rabbits have been increasing the role they play as companion animals in our society, and many bunnies are now best considered house rabbitsBUT their husbandry, and veterinary care is COMPLETELY different to our more familiar companion species.

So your rabbit deserves a veterinary practice that has

particular training, equipment and experience with your long-eared friend!

There is also an abundance of inappropriate information that can be found on the internet which will jeopardise your rabbit’s health and longevity.  Knowledge and experience is of paramount importance.  All the interactions with our rabbits in a clinical setting at the SUGARLOAF ANIMAL HOSPITAL are predicated on the fact that rabbits are a prey species.  This fact alone makes the way we interact with bunnies different to most of our other patients!!
