How To Care For A Baby Bunny

 

Rabbits are some of the cutest and most entertaining animals you can have as pets. With their fluffy, pom-pom tails and floppy ears, bunnies always find a way into our hearts. As with any pet, it is essential we know how to give them the care and attention they require to keep them fit and healthy.

Like all animals, baby bunnies need some basic care. It is natural for you, as a bunny parent, to want to hold and pet your baby bunny as much as possible and this is great because baby buns need to interact with humans for their development. This interaction will also help your rabbit adjust to being around people. Make sure to wash your hands before handling your baby rabbit to help prevent them from getting sick.

Feeding Your Baby Bunny

 

Rabbits have great appetites. Make sure you provide a good amount of fresh, leafy vegetables such as lettuce for your rabbit and unlimited access to grass hay, which is high in fibre and will help their digestion. If you feed your rabbit bunny pellets, only do this to supplement your rabbit’s diet.

While you may have always thought that rabbits love carrots, this vegetable should only be used as a treat for your rabbit. This is because they are high in carbohydrates and may result in an upset tummy for your bunny. You should also avoid alfalfa hay as this is rich in calcium and protein and can have the same consequences.

Setting Up A Bunny Nest

 

Bunnies prefer living in small spaces as it makes them feel protected and keeps them cosy. When they’re not sleeping, rabbits will spend much of their days eating hay and grass. Your baby bunny must have a large, well-designed cage with a few other items to ensure they are happy.

A Bunny Mat

Rabbits have really delicate feet and, as many rabbit cages are made from wire, their feet must be protected. A rabbit mat for their cage can offer protection and comfort for your bunny. This straw option from Made Terra is a great option. Made from edible seagrass, this mat will protect your rabbit’s feet and will not catch on their nails.

Rabbit Hide House

A perfect place for your bunny to make its nest, a hide house can help your rabbit to feel safe. Providing a comfortable place for them to nap, this one from Made Terra is made from edible seagrass so it will not make your rabbit sick. In fact, if your baby bunny decided to chew this one, seagrass is actually good for their dental health.

Giving Your Bunny The Best Life

Remember to feed your baby bunny high quality food and ensure their living environment is comfortable for them. Once you have done that, you will be able to snuggle and love your bunny, safe in the knowledge that they are as happy and healthy as can be.
