Vets & Emergencies
Please call us if you’d like to find a veterinarian qualified to treat your rabbit. We are finding many veterinarians that are treating rabbits who are not qualified to do so. If a veterinarian is not keeping up on the available literature, he/she will not be aware of the latest antibiotics or the proper anesthesia to use, etc. We have one list of veterinarians that we recommend for spay/neuter surgeries and another list of veterinarians that are well schooled in all phases of rabbit medicine. Unfortunately, this is not a very long list and it has taken us considerable time to locate qualified doctors. If we give you a doctor’s name within a clinic, ask for the doctor when you make an appointment.
If your veterinary clinic treats rabbits, I’d like to add them to my mailing list so that I can send them periodic information on rabbit medicine. If we do not have a qualified veterinarian in your area, phone around before you need a doctor. Do not be afraid to ask questions (call us for help).
In An Emergency…
In an emergency, keep your rabbit warm! Injured and sick rabbits quickly lose body temperature and can go into shock. Wrap your bunny in a towel or blanket, use body heat (or warm the towel in the dryer) to keep your rabbit warm while you transport him or her to an emergency vet.
