    Bacterial & Skin Diseases

    It is believed that 99% of health problems in rabbits would not occur with proper management, which includes good sanitation, feeding high-quality feed, taking time daily to clean and fill water and feed bowls, providing adequate room, cleaning sitting boards, cleaning ears and checking teeth and continually providing protection from cold, heat, wind and rain. Sanitation plays a major role in the health of your rabbit and cannot be overemphasized. Failure to adhere to good sanitation practices will inevitably result in the development of bacterial and fungal diseases.
