|Comment||Thanks. Most of her answer I already knew as I used to have a rabbit rescue, but I wasn't sure about the spray bottle. I had read that I can use it but he is not well socialized. He's beginning to accept me. I can pet him sometimes. He is perfectly litter trained and has been from day one! Better than Wendy! Her response though encouraged me to be patient and give the guy a chance. I am still mourning the loss of my JJ and I'm not sure if Wendy is or not. JJ was a perfect bunny.|
Answers by Expert:
I can answer questions around the welfare of pet rabbits, basic health queries including gut stasis, diet worries, bonding questions and the proper welfare standards around housing rabbits (i.e. no wire floors, no small cages and they should be kept in properly bonded de-sexed pairs in very large enclosures). I cannot answer showing questions nor complex breeding issues as I do not agree with either, seeing the other end of the story in the world of rabbit rescue.
I have two 7 year old rescue rabbits and volunteer for a well established rabbit rescue here in the UK, both physically doing cleaning out etc and I am also their events and awareness co-oordinator, helping educate the general public on proper rabbit keeping, this means I have to ensure all information I give is correct and matches current welfare standards.
I belong to the RWAF (Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund) and volunteer for a major rabbit rescue.
I have no formal education on this subject, however read everything I can to keep up to date with current welfare standards and health problems. Both my rabbits have sensitive guts and constantly keep me on my toes.
