Comments Off on First Time Bunny Owner?
If youâ€™ve recently become a first time bunny owner, congratulations! Bunnies make great indoor pets and companions.
You probably already have a cage, food dish, hay, etc. In addition to the daily necessities, here are a few extra supplies that are important to have on hand!
Bottle brush â€“ if youâ€™re using a water bottle, it will need to be cleaned with warm soapy water and a bottle brush on a regular basis.
- Nail clippers â€“ your bunnies nails will need to be trimmed approximately every 4 weeks. Have a vet or groomer show you how the first time!
- Simethicone or infant gas drops â€“ can be used to treat gas or bloating in bunnies
- Toys! â€“ Bunnies need physical and mental stimulation. Get creative with things you have around house, such as paper towel tubes stuffed with hay, or a brown paper bag crinkled up with a treat inside. Bunnies also love cardboard boxes!
