Making Sure Your Rabbit Keeps It's Cool

It's over 100 degrees on both coasts this week. I am sure there are a lot of domesticated rabbits who would like to dig a deep hole in a warren to get out of the heat. This is exactly what their wild counterparts in Europe would do. My place doesn't have an air conditioner so right now the lop, Speedy, is sitting next to his "cold buddy" and enjoying cool tile flooring. Miss Pansy is as close as she can get to the fan. She is keeping her ears up and open toward the breeze. She seems quite comfortable. Mr. Basil is over ten years old and he's enjoying the heat wave. However, for most rabbits high temperatures can be serious if they have no way to cool down. Visit my web page with several tips on keeping your rabbit cool.
