    A good thing to point out smile, I know a lot of people don't know that something as simple as a cold can be lethal to both rabbits and cavies (guinea pigs), they just don't have very good immunities against human diseases.

    I find the healthiest rabbits are the one kept in clean safe outdoor hutches. My big Flemishes are all huge and healthy. They have been in a semi insulated/heated when temps drop below -5c. They are active and so friendly.

    Rabbits can suffer from intestinal blockage, it is very important to feed them enough grains to keep their digestive system from shutting down. If a rabbit stops eating and has rapid breathing, chances are that it is a digestive issue. They can get sick easily.

    Thanks for reminding everyone..

    I have 4 litter trained, ARBA Lion Heads my child shows and breeds for FFA and 4-H , but they are house pets and live with the cats and dogs without any issues.
    We started off 10 years ago with 2 mimi-rex bunnies, but as they got past showing age, and unfortunatly passed away ( natural causes ) we went into Lion Heads for something different.

    actually, rabbits aren't supposed to eat grains. they should eat unlimited amounts of timothy hay, which is what keeps their digestion moving. they also need water every day. being sociable animals, if you keep them for pets, it's best to keep them indoors and interact with them on a regular basis. and you're right, they can contact some human illnesses, so lots of hand-washing is definitely advisable.

    Sometimes rabbits, get ear mites real bad.  It is something to keep and eye on.  Put some drops in their ears ever so often, this what I was told by an avid rabbit lover.
