    The RWAF have listed potential dangers to Rabbits during the Christmas period, worth a read even if you think you already know what to be mindful about

    ''Chewing the tree or its lighting cables. Real dangers. Whether you have a real or an imitation tree, put up a barrier around it and keep those electric cables where your bunnies cannot get to them
    Holly and mistletoe are both very toxic. Make sure your beloved pets can’t get to either. If you have them, keep them both well away from rabbit accessible areas
    Wrapping paper and the gifts themselves. Nobody wants a chewed present and of course ingesting that paper with its inks and possibly sometimes polymers too is very dangerous for rabbits, so keep gifts out of reach of bunnies
    Eating too much of the wrong thing. We all eat some treats in the festive season, probably more than we should, but be careful not to let your rabbits get to anything that might be toxic to them or too much of what they might like. Chocolate is highly toxic to dogs and in fact is bad for most species including us. For rabbits, the sugars may well be the biggest problem, so as with other treats, keep them away from your rabbits and if you have appropriate treats for them – low carbs, no egg, no dairy – remember, they are still just that, treats, and should only be given in very small amounts. You don’t want to be taking your beloved rabbits to the emergency vet on Christmas afternoon!
    Company, hustle and bustle – Christmas and New Year are times for families, visitors, people who generally wouldn’t be in contact with your rabbits, and likely not in large numbers. It’s often noisy as well. Remember this can be very confusing and sometimes frightening for your rabbits. They are prey animals, used to you and your immediate family so make a visitor-free zone where your rabbits can feel safe and can keep away from noise and bustle, won’t be handled inappropriately and won’t be fed the wrong things….and cannot escape out of your door when people are coming and going.''



    Also, they have been asked to publicise a Survey being undertaken by a 2nd Year Vet Med student at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC). She says, “I have decided to do mine on rabbit behaviour, specifically looking at whether there is any behavioural differences between outdoor rabbits and those that kept entirely indoors and have no access to outdoor space. I will also look at the influence of other factors such as diet, sex and companionship.”

    Her survey can be found here https://rvc.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/do-r...ehavioural-pro

    Please help by completing it if you have time

    Completed the survey. It's quite short, if anyone's worried about the time it will take.

    It's good to see that Rabbits are included in this campaign 'VETS AGAINST BRACHYCEPHALISM ' , which the RWAF is endorsing

    Yes, it is good to see that rabbits are included. It's a shame that some people who buy these breeds can't see past the cute and cuddly image and realise the problems these animals can experience.

    I saw something related to this on twitter from one of the Uni of Nottingham vets a few months ago: she did the 'cuteness' survey which was partly related to this
    The geeky one...



    Often available for bunny runs: PM for details.
