Always remember to praise your rabbit after you have completed your health check and give them a small bit of carrot or parsley as a treat. They will soon forgive you!
If your rabbit gets stressed when carrying out a health check – sing a little song to them or rub their noses or ears, generally make a fuss and calm them down before you continue. Some rabbits are more comfortable being examined on the floor.
Wrap a towel around your rabbit if you need to stop them struggling whilst carrying out a health check. Wrap it diagonally from the shoulder to the hip & make sure you have not covered their face
Herbal Slippery elm & Charcoal capsules help rabbits with digestive problems. Add a little powder from the capsules to water and syringe feed. Or try scattering amongst hay or pellets.
