Rabbits Die in Hot Hutches

It's important to keep our bunnies cool in this heat...

See below for some great top cooling tips at home...

Signs of heat stroke:

  • Reddening of the ears
  • Panting

Cooling tips

  • Wipe water onto their ears
  • Damp towel over hutches and runs
  • Bowls of cold water
  • Freeze bottles of water, or icepods
  • Stone or ceramic tiles
  • Create shade (parasols, sheets, trees etc)
  • Use specialist cage fans
