Rabbits are great for many homes but not all, says Dr. Angela Lennox of in Indianapolis. Homes with small children and larger pets, especially animals with strong hunting instincts, wouldn’t be the best fit for rabbits, she adds.
The needs of rabbits, rodents, weasels, and other pocket pets are comparable to those of our other small mammal patients (dogs and cats), and we can meet them all. If you’re a first-time owner of a pocket pet, we can also provide counseling so you can be best-prepared to care for your new pet at home. We can discuss diet, tanks/cages, and other related topics, which are detailed in our handouts at the bottom of this page. From routine wellness exams to critical care, our veterinary hospital is equipped to provide a wide range of small mammal services, including:

With shelters and rescues overflowing with homeless pet rabbits, we advocate that bunny owners spay and neuter their pets so they do not breed. However, in the case that you are caring for a pregnant rabbit or new mother, here are a few basic tips. "Many pets in Singapore suffer unnecessarily because of ignorance on the part of their owners," commented HRSS President Jacelyn Heng. "During the Year of the Rabbit, many people buy rabbits for the wrong reason and do not fully understand the responsibilities of keeping an animal at home. The problem is particularly acute for rabbits because people wrongly assume that they are low-maintenance starter pets for children." Jacelyn added, "Many pet shops in Singapore are also not well informed about the care needed for a pet rabbit and often provide wrong or false information to unknowing first-time owners."They want customers to think carefully about the responsibility of owning a pet before they make their decisions. Rabbits aren’t the “low maintenance” pets many . They’re intelligent, social animals that deserve to be a part of the family as much as dogs do. They live when kept indoors, and that means they should be housetrained, and the home should be bunny-proofed. Rabbits should also be spayed or neutered if you don’t want them marking your walls, furniture, and floors.Please read:
This video is purely to show you what Pets at Home is like, what kinds of items they sell etc. The store was being refurbished so that is why there aren't any guinea pigs, rats, gerbils or fish in this video. I have done 2 of these tours before around other pets at home stores and I thought that as I was on holiday going to a different store then I'd show you guys around too! I like the toys they sell for animals but would NEVER buy a pet from this place. Also a lot of the cages, hutches and fish tanks are far too small for the animals they are advertised for. 2 guinea pigs need at least a 4ft x 2ft hutch and 2 rabbits need at least a 6ft x 2ft x 2ft hutch with a run permanently attached.
Having owned pets for many years now, I've learnt that adopting them from a rescue is 100% better than buying them from pet shops. Personally I will never buy an animal from a pet shop ever again. Although these animals are cute, they have come from bad breeders and if you purchase them then you are encouraging the bad breeders to keep breeding and keep stocking the pet shops. Not everyone who wants a pet will look after it properly and pet shops are a place where they can gain access to one easily so the more pet shops that stop selling pets the better! Please try and adopt if you're wanting a small animal.
