Rabbit Awareness May 2015


Rabbits are becoming ever more popular in the UK and they make wonderful pets for adults and supervised children. Rabbits are social, intelligent and inquisitive animals, who need owners that are prepared to spend plenty of time with them, provide plenty of space and lots of opportunities to play. Rabbits can be kept both indoors and outdoors and they are happiest when they have another rabbit for company and they should not be kept alone.

Free Rabbit checks

This year National Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW) runs from the 9th to the 17th May to promote awareness of rabbit health care issues. However, we don’t think a week is enough for these wonderful pets, so Castle Vets will be supporting the campaign for the whole of May. We will be offering Free Rabbit Checks along with free nail clips and health advice consultations for your rabbits with our veterinary nurses (by appointment only).

Rabbit Awareness Week

Our nurses can advise on all aspects of rabbit care, nutrition, housing, life enrichment, insurance, vaccinations and avoiding the summer problem of fly-strike. As well as giving your pets a check over and weigh-in, we will clip nails free of charge if they need doing.

Our veterinary nurses will also welcome anyone who is thinking of acquiring some rabbits and would like some information about how to care for rabbits and the potential costs involved.

So make your appointment and hop along to Castle Vets during May. Please call Castle Vets on 01189 574488 for an appointment or more information.

Over the next few weeks we will be posting some articles on rabbit care and nutrition so check back here soon.
