What should you pay attention to when raising pet rabbits?

Having raised pet rabbits for more than 20 years, I still have some experience, and I have seen too many newbies who happily take the rabbit home in the morning, and cry and ask why the rabbit died in the afternoon. Rabbits are very cute little animals, but they are also very fragile little animals. They will die if you are not careful, so you must pay attention. 1. Rabbits need a large cage. The first big pit for raising rabbits is the cage. Many rabbit friends see that the rabbit is very small when they buy a rabbit. The merchant also recommends a small cage to save money and buy it. As a result, a few months after the rabbit grew up, it was difficult for the caged rabbit to stand up, let alone turn around. Therefore, the first big pit for raising rabbits must be avoided, that is, the first time you buy a cage for rabbits, you must buy a large cage. Even some dwarf rabbits are about fifty centimeters away when they are adults. If you want to get an Angora rabbit, a Japanese white rabbit, it will stretch about 70 to 80 centimeters when it is fully unfolded. The cage is for the rabbit to live in for a lifetime. You don't want your rabbit to not enjoy a fully stretched life once in his life when he grows up. 2. Rabbits should eat less radish and cabbage. The little rabbit, white and white, loves to eat radish and cabbage. It killed countless little rabbits. Many novice rabbits start raising rabbits from radish and cabbage. As a result, they all became rabbit killers, and very few rabbits barely survived a month. If the radish is fed carrots, the rabbit can barely eat a little bit, but many people feed white radishes and green radishes, which is flatulence and diarrhea. Green cabbage may refer to different vegetables in different places. Because the yield of cabbage is cheap, many people feed cabbage, cabbage and so on. It's okay for rabbits to eat a small amount, but it's really not good to eat too much, and it's easy to have diarrhea. Especially young rabbits have a particularly weak stomach. Basically, fresh vegetables and fruits are cut into small strips or peanut-sized particles. It is safe to feed a few strips or a few grains. 3. Scientific diet of rabbits The scientific diet of rabbits is like this, unlimited pasture (about 60%) + professional rabbit food (about 30%) + a small amount of vegetable and fruit snacks (less than 10%) + clean water . The rabbit's stomach is one of the weakest in digesting crude fiber of all common herbivores. The digestibility of crude fiber by other animals such as cattle and sheep is about 43%, that of guinea pigs is about 26%, and that of rabbits is only 14%. Therefore, the rabbit's stomach is much more delicate than other herbivores, and crude fiber is essential for the rabbit's intestinal peristalsis. 4. Rabbits can drink water, really! Many vendors who buy rabbits from street stalls will tell you this precaution, that is, rabbits cannot drink water, and they will die if they drink water. People and animals need or need to drink water, and the same is true for rabbits. Water supplemented by vegetables and fruits cannot completely replace drinking water. What's more, eating too many fruits and vegetables will cause diarrhea, in that case, the rabbit will really die. In nature, rabbits eat fresh grass every day to replenish most of their water (in fact, rabbits still need to find a place to drink water), but it is not too safe to feed vegetables in cities as pets are raised. Rabbits need to drink clean water. Generally, pure water, mineral water and purified water at home can be used. Of course, boiled water is also acceptable. It is recommended to prepare a drinking fountain for the rabbit, such as a ball faucet or a striker faucet. It is not recommended to feed water with a bowl, a plate, etc. (it will wet the chin to breed bacteria). 5. Try not to bathe rabbits Rabbits are very afraid of bathing, especially if they take a bath, they would rather die. Rabbits naturally live in semi-arid grasslands. Although they have to find a place to drink water, many rabbits usually eat fresh grass and wild vegetables, and wild fruits add a lot of water. They don't drink enough water, let alone take a bath. Rabbits usually clean their bodies by licking their fur with their tongues, and a few of them roll in the sand to clean their bodies. Although rabbits can swim, their fur is not airtight. After getting wet, the rabbit's fur is very heavy, and there is a danger of sinking to the bottom if they are not physically strong. If the rabbit is dirty, they will clean up by themselves. If the rabbit is too dirty to clean up, you can use dry cleaning foam or dry cleaning powder to clean it. The above methods do not work, you must wash it, then try to wash some areas with water, wash quickly, wipe quickly and dry quickly. 6. Rabbits are not suitable for free-range breeding. Rabbits are rodents, and rodents are divided into lagomorphs and rodents. Their teeth grow throughout their lives, so they need to grind them all the time. If rabbits are kept free, books, paper, mats, various fabrics, wooden furniture and even wall coverings will be gnawed by rabbits to grind their teeth. Of course, rabbits prefer all kinds of lines, all kinds of charging lines, power lines, data lines and so on. Therefore, rabbits are mainly kept in cages. Even if they come out to play, they are surrounded by pet fences and other safe areas. 7. It is normal for rabbits to eat feces. Like most cecum-digesting herbivores, rabbits will eat cecal poop for secondary digestion. As mentioned earlier, some herbivores have a relatively low digestibility of crude fiber, and these animals will perform secondary digestion by excreting specific undigested caecal stools. The purpose of this is also very simple, which is to better absorb all the nutrients in the food. In addition, there are many beneficial bacteria in the cecal stool, and it is convenient for rabbits to recover these beneficial bacteria after eating the cecal stool. In addition to rabbits, many rodents also eat cecum, such as guinea pigs, chinchillas, etc., and even hamsters that are not herbivores also eat cecum. It is normal for these animals to eat poop, and the poop they eat is specifically cecal poop, which is not the same as other poop. More and more people keep rabbits as pets, and cute little animals like rabbits are becoming more and more popular. I hope everyone can learn more about the experience and lessons of scientifically raising rabbits and protect their little rabbits.
