Keeping rabbits healthy takes more than the occasional carrot – it takes years of accumulated knowledge, experience and skill. Furthermore, it takes a rabbit vet with a real grip on all things bunny-related. As with all creatures, rabbits exhibit behaviours that are specific to just them, our long-eared, furry friends.
Did You Know?
In their natural setting rabbits are prey, hence their instinct is usually to hide any symptoms or signs of illness. Noticing even a slight change in behaviour can make all the difference to your rabbit’s wellbeing. The faster a problem is recognised, the quicker the right medication or treatment can be prescribed.

Advanced rabbit surgery and hospital care
Harry, a two-year-old bunny was presented to our Balcatta team after his owners reported that he was quieter in himself and didn’t appear to have much of an appetite.
On examination we discovered that Harry was suffering from gastrointestinal (GI) stasis, a condition in which the digestive system slows down considerably. We see this condition a lot in our patients and there is generally an underlying cause. In Harry’s case, we found a dental spur (a sharp point on one of his teeth) that was making him very uncomfortable.
Harry was stabilised then anaesthetised so that we could perform a dental float to correct back the spur that had developed and any remaining abnormalities that were present. Harry was an absolute legend and an hour after his procedure he was eating normally and back to his happy, healthy self.
Very nice and informative service. Lovely vet practice, will definitely recommend to others.

Excellent service, caring and professional advice, and very good handling for our pet bird, on our first visit today at The Unusual Pet Vets, Jindalee.
