Keeping the rabbit diet consistent is most important.
A sudden change in amounts or type of food can cause digestive problems from soft, sticky feces to a gastrointestinal stoppage, which can be fatal. Be very careful and follow the feeding instruction. Different rabbits can have diverse dietary requirements and it is very important that you don't overfeed.
Water is extremely important. Be sure the bottles or bowls are filled and refreshed.
Used litter is usually disposed of daily to avoid unhealthy ammonia inhalation.
Keep an eye out for chewing of unsafe items such as plastic, carpet or electrical wiring. Paper and cardboard are safe for chewing.
If a rabbit escapes, never chase, enticement with a favorite food works best.
Keep in mind that rabbits are vulnerable to high temperatures and heat stroke. In weather above 85º F or 29º C, keep their environments cool.
It is very important to know that not all rabbits get along well together. It could result in a fight with serious injuries.
Be sure you handle your rabbit correctly. If the rabbit falls or kicks it can break his spine.
