Rabbit Information Resources
We highly recommend that you have your rabbit examined by a veterinarian knowledgeable in rabbit medicine at least once a year. If you do not already have a veterinarian, please refer to the Chicago House Rabbit Society list of Veterinarians in the Chicagoland area. Not only will an annual exam help to prevent a number of medical problems, but you will have a medical staff familiar with your companion rabbit in case of any emergencies.
In addition to any information your veterinarian might supply, please take a look at these resources for more information on the care of your bunny!
