All too often rabbits get unjustly stereotyped as dirty animals. In reality, they’re immaculately clean. Not only do they keep their fur tidy, they also prefer to use the restroom in a specific area of their enclosures. This makes the wonderful candidates for litter box training!
Commonly considered to be “pocket pets” or “starter pets”, these animals require just as much care, commitment and money as cats and dogs. At West Michigan Critter Haven, it’s not only our goal to rescue small exotics in need, it’s also our mission to educate the community on proper care of these animals to establish better standards of care, respect and reduce the number of abandoned and neglected pets relinquished each month.
Infection from the protozoa Encephalitozoon cuniculi is widely prevalent within domestic rabbit populations. Learn more about this disease to ensure you are a better rabbit caretaker.
