Vale-Vets-_MG_7206_498x678.jpgRabbits are now the third most popular pet in the UK. There has been a gradual change in attitude from the rabbit as a pet confined to a hutch at the bottom of the garden to one in which the rabbit is now as much a part of the family as a dog or cat.

Owning a rabbit, like any pet, is a big responsibility. There are many important aspects to rabbit care. We will help you with this by providing advice and help where needed. Also see out rabbit fact sheets. Rabbit vaccinations can be given as early as 5 weeks of age and provide protection against Myxomatosis and Rabbit haemorrhagic disease.
