Are you the proud owner of one (or more) of Britain’s third most popular pets? If so you’ll know only too well that rabbits make wonderful companions and give so much back in love and their personalities. But there’s a lot more to rabbits than you may think…
Rabbits have always been thought of as the ideal children’s pet, seemingly requiring less care and attention than the more popular cats and dogs. But this has never been further from the truth as more is discovered about the diet and nutritional needs of Britain’s two million pet bunnies.
So just for next week, rabbit-nutrition experts and all-round good-guys Burgess feeds have re-named the rabbit the ‘Furry Fibrevore’, so that more owners and potential owners can understand what a huge part fibre plays in maintaining the digestive, dental, and even emotional health of rabbits.
To celebrate National Rabbit Week, we’ll be uploading a different picture of a ThePet.net member’s rabbit to our Pet of the Day slot every day, and the winner of Rabbit of the Week, judged by rabbit-loving writer and journalist Carol Muskoron will win a bag of Burgess Excel Adult Rabbit; as well as all six runners-up collecting a packet of Nature Snacks.
So why not hop to it and upload a picture of your rabbit now at:
