Rabbit Veterinarian Care Boise Idaho

Yes, we treat rabbits!

Rabbits don’t need any routine vaccines but often need to be seen for other things such as:
  • Digestive System problems
  • Dental/Teeth problems
  • Skin parasites
  • Urinary Tract problems
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Eye problems
  • Dietary/Husbandry problems
Did you know that the incidence of uterine cancer in female rabbits older than 4 years is greater than 50%?  Spaying young female rabbits will prevent this.  Neutering young male rabbits will help prevent unwanted behavior, such as aggression and spraying.  The best age to spay or neuter your rabbit is 4-6 months of age.

Most pet rabbits are not fed an appropriate diet and this can lead to many problems. A rabbit’s diet should be primarily grass or grass hay.  Commercial rabbit food/pellets should only be fed in limited quantities, roughly ¼ cup per day.  It is also recommended to feed roughly 2 cups/day of fresh vegetables/edible greens such as lettuce, broccoli, dandelion greens, carrots, and kale, to name a few.  Fresh fruits can be offered sparingly, about 1 tbsp/day.
