Rabbit Health

Whilst in general rabbits are healthy creatures, they can still become ill from time to time. As an owner, it is important for you to know how to keep them as healthy and as free from pain as possible. As well as keeping their living environment clean and making sure that they are getting all the nutrients they need from their diets, a good owner will perform routine checks on their rabbits to see if they are in good health.

I adopted two rabbits about 4 months ago from a local Humane Society. The two bonded immediately and love each other a LOT but they stay away from me a LOT. It is hard to groom them - they are molting now and allow me only to pet their heads. They both panic/hate to be picked up and I do so only in necessity. How do I get they to trust me? I know they both have been abused in some way in the past and I am patient with them. They are 2 &1/2 and 3&1/2 years old. Cathie
