It probably was an exhausting period for the wee tyke and after such adventure and hard work delivering Easter eggs around the world, it would be a great idea to have his/her health checked by your nearest Vets4Pets rabbit veterinarian. 

Obesity is becoming an epidemic in the developed world and our pets are following the trend. While general awareness of this problem is there, it can be much harder to do something about it in our pets.

Summer and swimming pools go hand in hand. Just as we get hot our pets are also tempted to have a dip when they are feeling too hot. While most of them are keen to go for a swim when the other family members are in the pool, some get more adventurous and get in water while we are away from home.

Cat Bite abscesses are one of the most common problems we see at all our Vets4pets practices. Unless kept 100% indoors, many cats will encounter this problem. Cats are very territorial animals and intruders are not very welcome. Sometimes it may not be your cat picking the fight, there is always a local bully around waiting to pounce. 

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner many people will be lucky enough to receive flowers from loved ones. But spare a thought for the effect that this could have on your fluffy four-legged friends. Lilies in particular can be extremely poisonous or even fatal, especially to cats.

With a hot summer approaching, it is important to remember the basics on how to keep your pets safe this season. Dogs, cats and especially rabbits and guinea pigs are prone to heat stress like we are. Spending prolonged periods of time in very hot and poor ventilated environment can cause heat stress in no time. 

With the Bureau of Meteorology predicting a long hot dry summer, it is important to remember that grass seeds can give your pet a lot of grief.

The importance of diet in a long and healthy life

In the wild, rabbits mainly eat grass! They graze for many hours a day, and their entire digestive tract is able to process large amounts of fibrous material such as plants.

This is going to be another hot year for Adelaide and with the weather warming up there are always unwanted guests, snakes. Contrary to common belief snakes can be found even in more populated areas of the city especially if the food supply is short. 

What is the point of neutering my rabbit?

The average life expectancy of a rabbit is 6-14 years. We would like to keep your rabbits as healthy and as happy as possible!
