Rabbits/ants

Question
Hi! Im Kaitlyn and i have a sweet bunny names micheal. I recently saw a few ants near his cage, can ants hurt him?

Answer
Kaitlyn,

Ants won't necessarily hurt him, but they're not something you want in his cage as they are, at the very least, a nuisance. I'd suggest a good scrubbing for his cage and some fresh bedding, plus a refreshed and clean litter box too. Also look to clean around his area so that whatever is attracting the ants is removed.

Hope this helps!

Expertise

I am not an expert on wild rabbits, only domesticated rabbits. I can answer questions regarding habitats, behavior, diet, health, pairing/bonding - pretty much anything having to do with owning a rabbit.

Experience

I've owned indoor rabbits for the last 10 years. During that time I've gained experience in areas like bonding exercises, understanding behavior, warning signs of sick bunnies, how to handle more serious illnesses (GI stasis, abscesses, eye problems, etc.) and more. It's rare that I come across an inquiry that I do not already know the answer to.
