Overview


All aspects of rabbit care for both new and experienced pet rabbit owners are discussed in this handbook. Detailed information on how to house, feed, and train rabbits is provided, with a comprehensive medical section on creating a first aid kit, diagnosing different rabbit diseases, and giving emergency care. Rabbits make up one of the fastest-growing segments of the pet population, and with more pet owners choosing to keep their rabbits indoors full time, this guide lays out practical information for making rabbits a healthy part of any family.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This comprehensive manual covers everything readers need to know about keeping rabbits as pets in a well-organized and informative fashion. Moore holds a Ph.D. in biology with a specialty in animal behavior and has worked as a county rabbit superintendent. She also keeps eight rabbits as pets, which makes her qualified to write on the topic. Taking a practical approach, Moore acknowledges both the pleasures and the pitfalls of keeping rabbits as pets. After a brief history of the animal, she discusses the variety of breeds and their characteristics, supplies and cages, nutrition, behavior and communication, and health. Moore's focus is strictly on pet rabbits kept in the home-she does not address large agricultural or breeding operations. Helpful appendixes include listings of rabbit health resources, shelters, and rabbit supply businesses. This book should be required reading for anyone interested in keeping pet rabbits and is recommended for public libraries.-Debby Emerson, Rochester Regional Lib.
