Grove Vets in Ballymena and Randalstown offer Pet Care Advice for Rabbit owners. Rabbits are a great pet for older children and can live for 8-12 years. Rabbits are best kept in a hutch with a run in the garden which will need to be cleared out regularly which can take up lots of time.

Rabbits need grooming and enjoy attention and interaction, it is advised that if you have a rabbit to get at least two as company for each other. DOn;t try to team a rabbit up with a guinea pig, or other small animal as they won’t get on as rabbits have a tendency to bully smaller animals.
