Rabbit Care


Hello Bunny People! Here I am, visiting my friends at our local rabbit-savvy vet's office, The North Alabama Cat and Bird Clinic in Hartselle, AL (and Ellen, you look mahvelous!) Did you know bunnies need to have regular vet check ups just like cats and dogs?

 

There is so much to learn about taking care of  your bunny, and I know that many of you have questions about all sorts of issues. I am going to be working my little paws off in the next few weeks to write lots of blog posts about caring for your rabbit, but until then I'm going to post lots of links to articles I think would be really helpful!

                                                              Love,

                                                                   Mrs. Brighton
