Local News:

As temperatures rise, leading veterinary organisations the British Veterinary Association (BVA), British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) and British Veterinary Zoological Society (BVZS) are warning pet owners to take special care of their rabbits this summer as they are particularly susceptible to suffering in hot weather.



Rabbits cannot sweat or pant to regulate their body temperature and cool down, and temperatures over 27 degrees centigrade can cause heat stroke, which is often fatal for rabbits. However, with the right preventative measures and care rabbits can enjoy the summer months as much as their owners.



This summer BVA, BSAVA and BVZS are offering rabbit owners some top tips on how to best care for their pets in the heat:



· Ensure your rabbits’ home and enclosure is kept shaded from the sun, with a good airflow, and constant access to fresh water.

· Place a ceramic tile or paving slab in your rabbits’ enclosure for them to lie on and cool down; make sure this is kept in the shade otherwise it will heat up in sunlight.

· Lightly misting rabbits’ ears with cold water is an effective way to help cool them, however never submerge a rabbit in water as this can cause shock and anxiety which will increase their core body temperature.

· Freeze plastic bottles of water and place them in your rabbit’s enclosure so that your rabbits can lie against them.
