If you are considering buying a rabbit as a pet, there are several things you should know before you buy one. You will need to buy supplies to house the rabbit, food, and other items.
A rabbit should be housed in a wire cage and should have a food dish and water bottle as well as pine shavings either inside or underneath, depending on the design. Feed your pet rabbit pellets daily, which you can find at most pet stores, and try to have a few boxes with shavings in them around the house if you are ever going to let it roam during the day, as rabbits can be easy to litter train.
Every breed of rabbit is different with how exactly they need to be cared for. The amount of rabbit pellets and other foods you should feed them may vary. Larger bunnies may require close to a cup of pellets a day while the smaller ones may only need a fourth cup per day. They may also need a different size of cage, so it is important that you research your type of rabbit.
Besides feeding and watering your rabbit, brushing and giving it attention is a part of your daily responsibilities as well. If you fail to brush your bunny regularly, their fur will become matted at it will be hard to get back to normal. You will also have to empty and refill their litter boxes several times a week and clip their toe nails often. Besides just rabbit pellets, try giving them treats like carrots or dandelions as well.
