bulletBunnies need fresh water every day.
bulletRabbits drink more in cold weather than in hot.  Burning calories to keep         warm can cause dehydration.
bulletRabbits are picky eaters.  Find a feed they like and STICK WITH IT!
bulletYou should always feed fresh pellets every day
bulletYou should always measure the feed because the first sign your bunny is sick is that he quits eating.
bulletAdding tea to the drinking water reduces the ammonia in the urine and helps reduce bacteria overgrowth.
bulletVery few bunnies ever die of old age!
bulletLeading causes of rabbit deaths are:
bulletHAIRBALLS - rabbits need hay or straw as part of their weekly diet
bulletDIARRHEA - abrupt changes in feed or greens fed to young rabbits can lead to diarrhea, dehydration and death. NEVER FEED LETTUCE! Any fresh fruit or vegetable should be introduced (to adult rabbits only) slowly and in small quantities.
bulletACCIDENT - rabbits don't always land on their feet when dropped like a cat. Broken backs are not uncommon injuries. Dislocated spines are treatable but fractures are not.
bulletHEAT STROKE - Rabbits don't sweat or pant. They can only exchange heat through the blood vessels in their ears and can become overheated and die very easily.  A bottle filled with frozen water can be placed in the cage to help cool your bunny.

Misters or drip irrigation hoses on top of the hutch works well to cool a bunny as well.

bulletDomestic rabbits are born naked, deaf and blind.
bulletJack rabbits are born fully furred and ready to run.
bulletMothers only nurse the young once a day for the first two weeks.
bulletAlthough rabbits are very clean and seldom need a bath any flea shampoo or spray that is safe for kittens is safe for rabbits. But be sure to dry the fur completely so the bunny doesn't catch cold.
