A letter from Rambo about bunny ownership
Yes, bunnies are very cute. But please do not buy bunnies on a whim. Do your research first. Rabbits are a 10-12 + years commitment. They are a lot of work, as much work as a dog (if not more work than a dog when cared for properly).
Vet bills can be very expensive because bunnies are considered exotic pets in Canada and require an Exotic Animal Veterinarian which is usually more expensive than a cat or dog vet. Our family has worked very hard to take good care of me & my brother Eddy. To date they have invested $6,700 in (unexpected) vet bills to save my life. I am a special needs and disabled rabbit. We are not saying all bunnies cost this much. This was our family’s personal experience. So before you get a pet of any kind please think it through and research first to make sure the pet fit your personality & circumstances & that you are prepared and willing to pay for unexpected veterinary care.
I enjoy sharing my bunny life with everyone and it makes me so happy that my cuteness makes you happy. But in all seriousness I’m also here to raise awareness about rabbit ownership, proper rabbit care as well as pet adoption. For more info about bunnies check out www.rabbit.org
