Boratadella is an infectious disease called "kennel cough" in dogs and can be FATAL to GPs. Most rabbits carry it even if they don't show signs of illness. Also a scared rabbit can injure or kill a GP by kicking out. Rabbits are MANY times stronger. It used to be ok to house them together but new research /experiences prove the contrary. Besides all animals are indaviduals and they may not even get along not to mention territorial issues. I am speaking from experience and a friend of mine is a GP breader, I would do some reasearch. Personally I would never house them together.
