It’s important to handle your rabbit gently and with care, as they can be easily injured. Support their hind end with one hand and their front end with the other hand, and be mindful of their delicate bones and joints.

Children should be supervised when handling rabbits, as they may not yet have the coordination or understanding of how to handle an animal gently. It’s important to teach children how to handle the rabbit properly and to respect the rabbit’s boundaries.

Never pick up a rabbit by their ears, as this can be painful and cause injury.

Some rabbits may be more skittish or fearful than others, and it’s important to respect their individual personality and boundaries. It’s a good idea to give the rabbit a place to retreat to if they feel overwhelmed or stressed.


  • To bond with your rabbit, spend quality time with them, such as grooming them or giving them gentle pets.

Mental and physical stimulation:

  • It’s important to provide your rabbit with plenty of mental and physical stimulation, such as toys and opportunities to explore and play.


  • Make sure your rabbit has a safe and secure home, and keep an eye on them when they are outside of their cage to make sure they are safe and not getting into any trouble.

Other pets:

  • If you have other pets, such as dogs, it’s important to introduce them slowly and carefully to ensure everyone gets along.

Veterinary care:

  • Regular visits to the veterinarian are important to ensure your rabbit stays healthy. Keep an eye out for signs of illness, such as loss of appetite, diarrhea, or lethargy, and take your rabbit to the vet if you notice any changes in their behavior or health.
  • Be sure to have a vet ready to call as well as a backup vet if your primary provider is not available.
