So you are thinking about buying a rabbit, aren’t you?
Of course, you want a rabbit that will last a long period of time.
Things to Note before Buying a Rabbit
1 Look closely at the body to see how big the rabbit
2 All rabbits should not be swelling; also, if you see fat or skinny rabbit, they are not a good choice.
3 The rabbit’s fur should be smooth and well groomed, you should not find any patches that make some spots of the rabbit bare.
4 The rabbit’s bottom should not have soiling because it means the rabbit has diarrhea problems.
5 If there is gooey or sticky stuff coming from out of the nose and eyes, it is not a good sign of a healthy habit. When you are looking at the eyes of the rabbit, they should be bright and cheerful, they should not look like they have been crying.
6 In cartoons, rabbits’ ears are always a pink color, when you are looking for a real rabbit, the rabbit should only have pink ears and no other colors, the rabbit should not have broken or red ears, it means the rabbit is not healthy to bring home as a pet.
You want a healthy rabbit to play with right?
That’s why the rabbit should always be active and moving around if you see a rabbit that is very lazy and always staying in one spot, it is not the right rabbit for you at all! Rabbits should be a fun pet to play with, just like dogs!
If you have already chosen an active rabbit, remember to check the breathing of the rabbit when it is moving around. The rabbit’s breathing should be quiet, the rabbit shouldn’t feel like it is gasping for air, that is a sign of an unhealthy rabbit.
The playground and where the rabbits live is important. Every rabbit deserves to live in a clean and friendly environment. If the living space of the rabbit is not clean, it means the rabbit will most likely be stressed and have more chances of getting a disease in the future, you don’t want that because you want your rabbit to be healthy and clean.
A friendly rabbit is really important because you want to be able to play with your rabbit and your friends as well.
When you are picking your rabbit, pay attention to how the rabbit reacts to you and other strangers.
The best rabbit to choose is always calm rabbits.
How do you know if a rabbit is friendly?
When you come close to pet the rabbit, he should be calm and relaxed, if the rabbit is, then you know if it is a friendly rabbit.
I know there are many rabbits to choose from, especially in new stores. But I suggest you visit a habitat rescue shelter for more rabbits to choose from.
You may want an adult rabbit than a bunny (baby rabbit). There are many adult rabbits that do not have a home, so providing them a friendly home to live in is a great thing for you to do.
A sick rabbit is not a good choice to have a pet because it will cost you a lot of money to take them to the vet for regular check-ups and the rabbit may not live for a very long time.
Choosing a healthy rabbit is important, you want a rabbit that you can care for a long time.
