They say it is ok to house a guinea pig with a rabbit

They also recommend rabbits are kept as singles

Can anything be done to try to get them to change their advice and information?

What do you think about the other information they provide, is a 4ft hutch big enough?

They mention a run but do not say how big this is meant to be the hutches and runs in the shop are small

I guess only try and educate them. Maybe some leaflets?

Yeah, take round a stack of RSPCA leaflets which clearly state that rabbits benefit from neutering and pairing! Highlight the relevant sections in one of them, maybe?

I would probably email them and send leaflets..

It's the other way around hun, Rabbits carry Bordatella which can cause Pneumonia in Guinea pigs :(
