PROFESSOR RABBIT

NEVER:


-Abandon your rabbit.

-Allow your rabbit to be given oral cillin drugs such as amoxicillin or penicillin.

-Allow your rabbit to eat or come into contact with mold.

-Allow your rabbit to eat houseplants, especially pine and other Christmas greenery.

-Allow your rabbit to remain in an area or vehicle where there are fumes from exhaust or chemicals such as paint, insecticides, etc.

-Declaw your rabbit. A rabbit's claw is part of their foot's structure. Declawing a rabbit results in an amputation of the first phalanx of each toe.

See the article, "Declawing Rabbits," by Joane Paul-Murphy, DVM. At Rabbit References, click on "Care & Feeding," then at "Select A Topic" click on "Why Not to Declaw," and then click on the article.

-Fast your rabbit. Fasting before surgical procedures is done to prevent aspiration of vomitus during surgery. Rabbits do not vomit making this precaution unnecessary. Also, fasting your rabbit can cause gastro-intestinal prolems such as slow downs and stasis.

See "Approaches to Surgical Procedures in the Rabbit," by Sharon Redrobe, MRCVS. At Rabbit References, click on "Health & Medicine," then select the topic "Surgery," then click on the article.

-Feed your rabbit any animal product, unhealthy diet or treats, or too many treats.  Never feed iceberg lettuce because it has no nutritional value.

-House your rabbit in high humidity areas such as bathrooms and basements.

-Leave your rabbit in direct sunlight, hot cars, or in temperatures exceeding 70�F.

-Leave your rabbit unsupervised in an area that has not been rabbit proofed.

-Leave your rabbit unsupervised with young children or other animals unknown to be trustworthy with rabbits.  Even if the other animals and children are known to the rabbit it is unwise to leave them supervised.

-Leave your rabbit with pet sitters or boarding facilities that are not rabbit educated.

-Leave your rabbit behind in case you have to evacuate in the event of a disaster.

PLEASE!
