British vets recently reported that a large percentage of pet rabbits coming in for check-ups are significantly overweight. Being a chubby bunny can cause significant health problems including sore hocks and sore joints. If a rabbit is overweight it makes cleaning themselves very difficult putting them at risk of fly strike. Bunnies will live longer and happier lives when they maintain a healthy weight. If you suspect your rabbits are overweight, arrange for a check-up with your vet who will be able to advise you on how to get bunny back to being a healthy weight and active again.
