Observations from Angela Lennox, DVM:

Spring is Almost Here, And That Means Easter….and Maybe Easter Bunnies?

At the Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic, we love pet rabbits.  We love people who love pet rabbits. However, in the weeks after Easter, our local rescue partners see an upswing in the number of rabbits relinquished by well-meaning people who bought Easter Bunnies on impulse without a lot of thought about what goes into caring for a pet who can live for 10 years or more.

The House Rabbit Society has a wonderful article on the Easter Bunny Problem you can read here:http://rabbit.org/easter-and-rabbits-do-not-mix/

If you are considering a pet rabbit at Easter, or any time of the year, we would love to talk about it!  The Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic offers free “Pre-Purchase Consults” where you and your family and learn the ins and outs of rabbit (or any exotic pet) ownership BEFORE you purchase.  Call 317-879-8633 to schedule.
