Being a breeder it can get pretty expensive to buy all of our rabbits toys on a consistent basis. I will be posting more DIY rabbit toys to our blog to help reduce your costs as well! There are some really fancy rabbit toys out there on the market that some of our rabbits could honestly care less about. But sometimes, it's the almost free toys that get the job done and they even last longer! So here is a fun one... start saving those toilet paper rolls!
Step 1. Collect your supplies!
Items you'll need:
Step 2. Cut Holes In The Toilet Paper Roll!
Carefully with your scissors cut 3 holes on opposite sides of the toilet paper roll so that when you stick one of the sticks through, it will go through both holes.
Step 3. Shove hay into the toilet paper roll. The fuller the better!
If you have a rabbit that is picky about eating hay, try to make one of these fun toys to spice things up for them! It may encourage them to eat the hay more often!
Step 4. Stick one stick through to each hole to complete!
If you packed your toilet paper roll tight, it may be a little harder to stick the sticks through to the other side. Just wiggle them and twist them until they go through!
It’s important to have some first aid materials for your bunny in case of an emergency or illness. We always hope that nothing will ever happen but it’s best to be prepared just in case. You can have the safest housing and be feeding them the healthiest way but accidents and illness can still occur.
Here is a list of items we recommend you keep on hand. We’ve included links to some of the harder items to find on Amazon. It’s best to get a container to keep all these items in so it’s easy to grab.
When to see a vet?
If there is ever an emergency beyond your knowledge please seek advice from your rabbit savvy vet. You can take your rabbit to the vet for an annual checkup once a year to make sure they are healthy. If you have adopted a baby bunny, it’s also highly recommended to get them neutered or spayed as soon as they can be. This is usually between the ages of 3 months-6 months. Every vet is different so call to ask how old the rabbits need to be. This will help with litter training or any behavioral problems.
