How To House Rabbits Indoors

 

Did you know that housing a rabbit is shown to have many benefits, not just for your pet, but for you too.

By keeping your rabbit indoors, it protects them not only from potential predator harm, but also keeps them out of the harsh summer weather conditions we have in the UAE. Housing your rabbit indoors may help to identify any illnesses or injuries they may have, as you will be able to quickly identify changes in their behaviour or appearance.

If you are open to housing your bunny in your home, then read on to find out what you need to make them happy and healthy. 

 

Access to Hay 

As most rabbit owners will know, access to hay is an essential to support their digestive system and keep their teeth trim. Not only should hay be easily accessible, but ensure a nice supply of fresh veggies and water are available to keep them healthy throughout the day. Shop our hay selection here.

 

A Potty Place 

Believe it or not, your house rabbit can be trained to use a litter box. One thing to note is that not all litter is safe for your rabbit and can make them sick, so be aware of the type you are using. 

Litter brands that are specified for small pet or paper based litters are much safer options to consider when deciding.

Rabbits tend to go to the toilet in the corner of pens or rooms, so be sure to set up their potty place in the corner of your pen or room. 

 

Exercise and Entertainment 

Just like any other pet, bunnies can get bored if left without varieties of exercise and enrichment options. 

To avoid possible destructive chewing, digging and potential health issues, try keeping them safe within a playpen that is equipped with plenty of rabbit toys to keep them active. 

 

With some preparation, both you and your rabbit can cohabit your home comfortably.
