Rabbit Care

If you have a bunny, you know that they are not the "low-maintenance" pets that some people think they are. They need a proper diet, housing with plenty of space, and time to run and play every day. For people in bunny love, however, they are definitely worth it! We are here to help you take the best care of your bunny.


A bunny's diet should include hay, fresh vegetables, good quality pellets, and perhaps an occasional treat. For a list of local and online stores check our Supplies page.

Hay is the most important part of your rabbit's diet. They should have access to high quality grass hay at all times.

Litter Training

Yes, you can litter train your rabbit! Rabbits tend to use one area to go to the bathroom, so litter box training is often as easy as putting a litter box in the area your rabbit chooses. Spayed and neutered rabbits tend to be easier to litter box train since they don’t feel the urge to mark their territory.

Here are a few articles on how to litter train your rabbit:
There are many types of litter to choose from, but the wrong type of litter can be very dangerous for your rabbit. Make sure to research any type of litter you want to try to make sure it is safe. Never use clumping litter, cedar shavings, or pine shavings. Aspen is the only safe wood shaving for small animals. Pelleted pine litter is okay to use and is a great choice for odor control and absorption. An example is Feline Pine.


There are lots of possibilities for bunny housing, from crates to exercise pens. Remember any enclosure should be at least four times the size of your bunny when he is laying down. We recommend at least eight square feet of living space for a single rabbit, and 16 square feet for a bonded pair, with additional space to run and play.
