Make sure that your rabbit is in the right type of cage meaning it is big enough and has the right things needed such as food, and water mostly. Make sure that your rabbit has always enough food and water, and make sure to clean the cage enough so that your rabbit has a clean environment.

Just like any pet provide food, water and shelter. Rabbit food can be found at your local pet store or feed store. They can also be left outside in nice weather. Also keep their cage cleaned and can be litter box trained with patience.

First, always provide fresh drinking water and timothy hay to your rabbits. They require approximately 1/4 cup of rabbit chow a day. You can also supplement 1/2 cup of that with raw vegtables and a vitamin enriched salt lick always.

Get your rabbit spayed or neutered right away. Make sure that they have fresh water, hay, timothy grass, and kibble, as well as fresh greens. Keep them away from wires and other things they can nibble. Make sure they have enough space to exercise.

First of all, you do not give a rabbit \"kibble\", you give them \"pellets\". and second you never said anything bout a cage or little toys for them, if they need \"advice\" from an expert, they could just go to House Rabbit Society or RabbitHaven :))  add a comment

Caring for rabbits is pretty much common sense--a clean pen, food, and water. Most don't recommend wire floors. Our rabbit like having a box to sleep in.

Rabbits are pretty basic critters. You need to give them a good shelter and make sure the cages are big enough for them to have a furrowing box in it with them. Give them fresh food and water every day and they will live forever. If you have a mom with babies do not touch them she will kill them.

keep the rabbits cage clean and remember to let the animal out of its cage to run around and move. Rabbits are wild animals and need freedom to grow. Also make sure it gets to be in grass alot as that is its natural habitat.

Very basic care includes ensuring that they have fresh, clean water at all times preferably in a bottle, unlimited timothy hay, a good quality pellet and if over the age of 6 months some green veggies daily. Do a search for safe rabbit foods to find out what veggies are ok for them.


Answer by  YellowCup (1650)

Rabbits need a lot of special care. They love fruits and veggies to eat, and need adequate water. They can reproduce rapidly, so if you got a male and a female and don't want to end with a whole slew of rabbits maybe opt in getting the male rabbit neutered. Most vets can do it.


Answer by  bb0603 (208)

make sure that if you are keeping the rabbits together, the cage as enough room for all rabbits. Make sure they have enough food and water, and cage is clean.


Answer by  CR125 (396)

When caring for rabbits, make sure that they have plenty of water and food pellets. Cleaning the litter is essential for a habitable environment. If kept in a cage, make sure to let them out for a while in fresh air, or keep it in an outdoor cage.


Answer by  Angela17 (697)

Rabbits need a safe cage that their little paws will not get stuck in. Its always best to use pine bedding. They also love Timmothy hay and vegetables.


Answer by  caramelocianuro (8)

space in which to move, the water should be changed every day ,must receive adequate food, is not recommended that the rabbit live with other pets.


Answer by  thewerewolfmage (520)

They need to be in a hutch with a place to keep them dry and warm from the rain if they are outside. They cannot get too hot. Like most anything they need food and water. They also need to chew to keep their teeth from growing too long.
