What You Need When You Get A Rabbit
How to Prepare for Keeping a Rabbit
Research rabbit care.
- Look online for information.
- Buy rabbit care books or check them out from a library. Make sure that any books you purchase are up to date.
- Go to a rabbit rescue or show to interact with rabbits and learn more about caring for them.
Make a list of all the things you'll need to buy.Consider how much it will add up to, including vet care such as vaccinations, spaying, and neutering. Here's a basic list to get you started:
- Rabbit food: hay pellets, fruits and vegetables, and hay.
- A place for your rabbit to live: a cage, a hutch, or an exercise pen (like a puppy pen).
- Toys for your rabbit: cat toys, homemade toys, wood to chew on, etc.
- Things to put in your rabbit's cage: a litter box, food/water containers, a hay rack.
- Health care: vaccinations, spay/neuter, health checkups, and any emergency care.
Consider your house and garden.Is your garden suitable - does it have gaps in fencing or plants poisonous for rabbits or treated with pesticides? Is your house suitable - does it have well-insulated walls (i.e double glazing); does it have wires all over the place?
Interact with rabbits available for purchase.You can go to a rabbit rescue, an animal shelter, a pet store, or a rabbit shore to find rabbits for sale. Play with the rabbits and consider if a rabbit would fit into your life.
Check that your entire family is OK with you getting a rabbit.It's also good to check that no one is allergic to rabbits.

- Make sure you're ready for the responsibility of a rabbit.
- Research, research, research!
- If hay is not in the budget, use apple tree twigs from nature. Also, give them card board to chew on. They don't need lots of vet check-ups. Maybe even none as long as they are sprayed and healthy and vaccinated when you got them. Humane centres and rescue places are WAY cheaper.
