Choosing Your Pet

Choosing Your Pet

They're smart. They're friendly. They can be trained to use a litterbox. And, they're fun to watch. For many pet owners, rabbits make great companions.

Pet rabbits come from all over the world and include a wide variety of domestic breeds. They range in color and size — from a mere two pounds to as large as 13 pounds — as well as the proportionate size of their ears. They live an average life span between seven and ten years. Common breeds of pet rabbits include:

  • American Fuzzy Lop Rabbits
  • Angora Rabbits
  • Brittania Petite
  • Creme D'Argent
  • Dutch Rabbit
  • Flemish Giant Rabbit
  • Havana Rabbit
  • Holland Lop
  • Jersey Wooly (Dwarf Angora)
  • Lionhead
  • Mini Lop
  • Mini Rex
  • Netherland Dwarf
  • New Zealand Rabbit
  • Polish Rabbit
  • Silver Marten

You can choose a rabbit based on the appearance and personality that appeal to you. Different breeds exhibit surprisingly similar characteristics that reflect survival techniques dating back to the first appearances of these animals.

It is important to recognize that rabbits are not ideal pets for small children. They are relatively delicate, fragile creatures who can be stressed by too much cuddling. They are also easily hurt by mishandling. Rabbits are better pets for children who can understand and manage their behaviors to put the needs of a bunny first.

We schedule a full 30-minute appointment for most of our exams. This allows ample time to discuss your concerns with our doctors and to provide your pet with a full extensive exam. If you phone us with questions, our staff members are happy to assist you. If additional information is needed, a doctor will make every effort to call you back the same day.

We provide expert medical and surgical care should your pet become ill or injured. We offer a full range of quality animal care with specialized diagnostic and treatment modalities. We also provide consultations with board certified specialists.
