    Default Possibly the most ridiculous article I've read on rabbits

    Feeding a daily custard cream biscuit to rabbits to help them live to the unusually old age of 10 Described as a wrinkly rabbit who enjoys socialising with ducks & dogs

    Wet mouth = pos' Dental Disease

    slightly lop sided face = pos' chronic otitis media

    Human feeding custard creams to Rabbits = eejit

    Veterinary Professionals putting out misleading and dangerous information = irresponsible.

    Have forwarded the link to the RWAF x

    Yes, definitely pass on any misleading information about Rabbit Health and Welfare. They have a team of folk who deal with such issues. No doubt a lot more tactfully than I would !!

    Absolutely ridiculous, misleading, potentially dangerous.
    I’ve just looked, though, and I think it says 2014.
