CARING FOR YOUR RABBIT There are many different breeds of domestic rabbits. Rabbits make good pets and can be house trained. Females are called does and males are referred to as bucks.  Older bucks and some does that have given birth to a litter of kits (baby bunnies) develop strong territorial instincts and may bite people, but usually only if provoked. Rabbits can also inflict painful scratches if improperly restrained or if naturally aggressive. Some breeds are more aggressive than others, with Dutch rabbits being more aggressive than New Zealand Whites and Lops. Rabbits thump using both hind limbs as an isolated response to a fearful or painful situation.  Rabbits begin approaching sexual maturation when older than three months (depending on the breed, nutritional status and health) and at that time, they may begin attacking each other. So, once they reach that age, they should usually be housed individually.  In some circumstances, female groups established before sexual activity begins, may be housed together.  Mature rabbits should only be paired at mating.  Neutering will usually decrease aggression.
MEDICAL CONCERNS Rabbits are fairly hardy animals, and many health problems are the result of poor diet, lack of cleanliness or improper handling, which may result in injuries.  X-rays or ultrasound may be necessary to diagnose stones in the urinary tract.  Bacterial bladder infections can also occur.  Rabbits may suffer from a variety of gastrointestinal ailments. Dietary changes, antibiotic therapy causing diarrhea, stress, and in some cases, genetic predisposition, may lead to GI problems.
DENTISTRY FOR YOUR RABBIT Rabbits and small mammals can be particularly prone to dental problems, so at Monrovia Animal Medical Center, we offer comprehensive dental treatment options.  Pets with dental disease constantly release bacteria from their mouths into their bloodstream resulting in inflammatory changes in the heart, liver, and kidney tissue in otherwise healthy animals.  This problem may be exacerbated in pets that already have other existing diseases.  Periodontal disease is not only painful, but is a major health risk for your pet rabbit.
