Overgrown teeth or dental malocclusion is one of the most common problems in rabbits encountered by vets. If left untreated this may result in the rabbit being unable to eat and therefore having to be put to sleep.
Diarrhoea is a common problem in pet rabbits. It can be a very serious condition and veterinary advice should be sought immediately. If left untreated diarrhoea can cause dehydration which at extreme cases can be fatal.
Neutering of both male and female rabbits is strongly recommended unless you wish to breed from your pet. Rabbits become sexually mature between 4 months (in smaller breeds) and 6 to 9 months (in larger breeds).
Your rabbit should be vaccinated routinely against Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease (RHD) and Myxomatosis. Both these viral diseases can be rapidly fatal in an unvaccinated rabbit and there are no cures once infected.
