    From the Rabbits Mouth

    As a rabbit owner, breeder and exhibitor, I know finding information on rabbits even for just the pet owner can be a struggle. For those that do not have the opportunity to purchase their rabbit from a well knowledgeable rabbit breeder, who can offer a lifetime of answers to any questions, this book may be the next best thing. I did find a few things that I disagreed with on the care/well being of the rabbit, but nothing that will cause severe damage from following their advice to the fullest. As well I found a few 'inaccuracies' in facts from the USA point of view for purebred rabbits.
