health checks all week. We look forward to welcoming rabbit owners to our free health
checks at the surgery, to ensure they are not only physically well, but also emotionally.”
Matt Brash, TV vet and RAW supporter, said: “This May, the focus is on raising awareness
of rabbits’ dietary requirements including their need for a high fibre diet. Many of the issues
seen in practice can be prevented through proper diet and nutrition.
We are trying to
educate owners about the diet and how, when fed correctly, this can improve the lifespan of
the animal and decrease veterinary bills. The good news is there are a number of easy
ways in which we can help our pet rabbits to be happier and healthier. With the support of
the veterinary community and the pet retail sector, our primary aim is to educate owners in
responsible rabbit ownership and improve the wellbeing of Britain’s third most popular pet.”
