Bunny Care


Bunny Care Checklist

√  Indoor cage or x-pen

√ Water bottle/bowl

√ Litter box

√ Quality Pellets

√  Rabbit friendly toys  

√  Nail trimmers



The biggest and most important part of caring for your bunny is hay! Your bunny should have access to fresh hay at all times. Hay will help to keep their gut bacteria in balance and keep their digestive systems moving steady!
Hay will also keep their teeth healthy!

A balanced diet will also include high-quality rabbit pellets (like Oxbow Essentials) and a variety of fresh vegetables. Quality vegetables, to name a few, include: red or green leaf lettuce, parsley, cilantro, dill, carrot tops. You should never feed your rabbit

Iceberg lettuce, seeds, fruit pits, avacados or rhubarb.

Treats and sugary vegetable should only be given sparingly.

Ensure access to clean and fresh water at all times.


Social Interaction

Mini Plush Lop bunnies are very social animals, so spend quality time interacting with your bunny daily.

If possible, consider adopting a pair for companionship. The best pairing is an altered male/female. But two females can also be housed together! I would hesitate to add 2 males together as when hormones kick in they may start fighting and could cause serious harm to one another!

Provide toys and activities for mental stimulation.



Brush your bunny's soft coat regularly to prevent matting and reduce shedding.

Check and trim the nails, as needed.

Monitor the ears and clean them if wax or debris accumulates.


Veterinary Care

It's very important to monitor your bunny for any signs of illness, behavioral changes, or dental issues. Signs your rabbit isn’t feeling well may include: hiding or lethargy; eating less or refusing foods; producing less stools or stools that look different in shape /size. If you suspect your bunny is sick, don’t delay - seek veterinary care as soon as possible!

Schedule regular check-ups with a rabbit-savvy veterinarian and discuss spaying/neutering options. Rabbits reach sexual maturity around
4-6 months. At this stage pet rabbits should be neutered/spayed to: prevent unwanted pregnancies in bonded rabbits; reduce chances of health complications (female rabbits have an 85 percent chance of uterine cancer if not spayed by age 3) and prevent unwanted behaviours such as spraying urine, false pregnancies and aggression.
