Finding a rabbit veterinarian
Rabbit anatomy is very different from cats and dogs, so they need to be brought to specialized veterinarians. You’ll want to look for Small Mammal Veterinarians or Exotic Animal Veterinarians in your local area.
To get you started HRS has a listing of veterinarians across the US. They also have a small number of international veterinary locations. RWAF also has a list of rabbit friendly veterinarians across the UK.
Recommended products and brands
With all the different brands and products you can get for rabbits, it can be difficult to know what is actually healthy and good for rabbits. If you’re wondering where to start, I’ve put together a list of the brands that I prefer to use for my rabbits.
This list includes items for the best rabbit foods, toys, enclosures, and also items you should have for litter training and rabbit proofing.
I’ve had great experiences with an online store called Small Pet Select. They always have fresh, green hay for my rabbits. They also sell toys that my bunnies will actually chew on and play with, along with a variety of healthy treats for rabbits. If you are interested in browsing for rabbit supplies, I highly recommend you check them out.
