What does it take to keep your rabbit really, really happy?
Hop along to a Rabbit Awareness Week event between 23rd and 29th of May to find out how to keep your pet happy and healthy
Rabbits are the third most popular pet in the UK, with over 1.6 million owned up and down the country. They make excellent pets and will stay happy and healthy with your care and commitment.
But as with any pet, they are a big responsibility for owners, which is where Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW) comes in. This week-long event, which is sponsored by Petplan and runs from 23rd-29th of May, aims to ensure rabbits don't get a 'RAW' deal and that current and potential owners are kept in the loop with information on how to make sure Flopsy stays one happy bunny. Each year during RAW, many vet practices offer free health checks and opportunities to find out more about keeping rabbits.
This year's event focuses on the theme of behaviour, raising awareness of how to ensure pet rabbits are as happy as they would be in their natural environment.
