Rabbit Wellness Examinations
Rabbits are prey animals. Their lives in the wild consist of constant vigilance for predators and instincts that drive them to hide any vulnerability. They conceal illness and injury until they no longer can, in an effort to make themselves appear invulnerable. They also gave delicate spines and need sensitive handling to prevent injury.
Preventative wellness examinations are crucial to the health of your rabbit. We recommend annual exams for younger rabbits and biannual exams for rabbits over the age of 5.
