Beacuse rabbits are a prey species by nature they hide their symptoms when they are ill. This helps with survival when they are in the wild.
For that reason by the time owners see symptoms such as loss of appetite, lethargy or changes in behavior, they are usually significantly more sickr than their owner realizes. Rabbits are vulnerable to many infectious diseases and other illnesses, especially dental disease. Did you know rabbits front teeth and molars grow continuously?
At VCA Animal Healing Center we understand the importance of getting sick bunnies in as soon as possible!
