Rabbits

Rabbits can make very good pets, as they are both friendly and intelligent. However, they do have some important husbandry needs to keep them happy and healthy.

Their average life span is six to 10 years, with a record age of 15 being reported.

Just like cats and dogs, rabbits need preventative healthcare to keep them fit and well.

Insuring your pet rabbit

If your rabbit is unwell the last thing you want to worry about is how to pay for treatment. We recommend that you consider pet insurance for all of your pets.
