Rabbits make wonderful pets. They are fluffy and soft, respond well to handling, and can learn to use a litter box. There are even different breeds of rabbit! For example, some have straight ears, some have floppy ears, some are normal size, and some are dwarf sized. Rabbits can live for 5 - 10 years. Rabbits have very strong hind legs and sharp claws. They also have a very light skeleton. If you handle your bunny improperly, he may kick his legs so hard that he breaks his back! When you carry him, always support his rear end. If he struggles, put him down, until he is quiet.

If You Choose a Pet Rabbit
You should make sure that you are purchasing a healthy bunny. It is best to select a young bunny. He should have clear eyes and a nose free of any mucus. The bunny should be curious and friendly. Check to see the bunny has been spayed or neutered. Most are breeders and pet stores do not alter their pets. You will want to have your new friend spayed or neutered between 4 and 6 months age. An altered pet will reduce the risk of that famous bunny reproduction and will prevent certain health and behavioral problems. In the United States, bunnies do not typically require vaccines, but be sure to check with your veterinarian to confirm the protocol in your area. Bunnies do, however, require vaccines in the United Kingdom. They always need annual check ups and fecal tests for parasites.

  • "May 11, 2016

    I would highly recommend Vet to Pet and Dr. Jamie Tudor. In our family, our feline friends are our kids and Dr. Tudor always goes out of her way to give our family the best available care and treatment. Last year we had to say goodbye to our 17 year old cat and Dr. Tudor let him die with dignity as Blackie passed away surrounded by his family in the comfort of his own home."
  • "We still have 3 remaining cats and Dr. Tudor saved our fifteen year old girl as she was in stage 3 kidney failure. That was 2 years ago and our Princess is still going strong as ever because Dr.Tudor began treatment immediately. As a result Princess is her happy old self and is thriving at almost 17."
  • "In January of this year, our 6 year old boy Wally became deathly lethargic and began to drink a lot more water than usual. He had also lost a significant amount of weight in less than 2 months. Again, because of Dr. Tudor’s quick response, we found out that our Wally has Stage 2 Diabetes, insulin required. Since treatment in January, Wally is a thriving young 6 year old again and the overall treatment itself (Blood tests, urine tests, etc.) was a roller coaster emotionally and financially, but Dr. Tudor was there for us and Wally the whole time. The initial costs were definitely worth it as Wally is back to his crazy, wild self, and we hope that someday Wally will be in Remission."
  • "Our cats are healthy and alive because of our family Vet. Words alone can never express our heartfelt appreciation that we have for Dr. Jamie Tudor. She even texts us…how many Dr’s actually text their clients?! I wish everyone could be as lucky as us to have such an amazing Vet. From all of us, we say Thank You Dr. Tudor and we are happy that you are a part of our family."
