At Cottage Country Animal Clinic we can take care of all the medical and surgical needs of your pet rabbit.
Rabbits suffer from many of the same ailments as dogs and cats, such as eye and ear infections, skin diseases, respiratory infections and dental issues. Interestingly, rabbits’ teeth grow continually throughout their lives, which can lead to overgrowth of teeth and other dental problems. As well they are prone to various gastrointestinal (stomach and intestinal) ailments that are unique to this species, and which can have devastating consequences if not treated properly and promptly. The first sign of GI problems in rabbits is often just a lack of appetite, but this can progress to a very serious condition in a short period of time.
We are experienced in dealing with these and many other illnesses in pet rabbits.
We also offer a wide range of surgery for rabbits, including spaying and neutering. Rabbits benefit greatly from spaying or neutering, which will prevent or correct a variety of medical and behavioural problems, as well as preventing unwanted pregnancy if you have more than one bunny in your home. The best age for spaying or neutering is 6 to 12 months of age, although this procedure can usually be performed safely in rabbits of any age.
Talk to any of our staff about a health check, spaying/neutering, or if you have any health concerns about your pet rabbit.
