Rabbits and their care in winter

Winter can be challenging for pet rabbits, especially if kept in an outdoor area.

Rabbits are naturally very good at dealing with cold temperatures. But with the wrong attitude, they are exposed to winter dangers such as hypothermia, frostbite and reduced body temperature. Smaller rabbit breeds are more at risk than larger ones because they are not as good at storing heat. In order for the animals to feel comfortable in winter and to be able to spend the season healthy and lively, their keepers are required to create the best conditions for the animals.

On the one hand, this includes not letting them get used to an outdoor enclosure until autumn. And on the other hand, to winterize the rabbit enclosure in time.

By late autumn at the latest, rabbit keepers will have to hurry to conjure up a cozy winter shelter for their darlings in time.
