FAQs

How often should a rabbit eat?

The number one fan tends to be the tauhou. Those little green cuties just love pecking away at this energy rich food. Topflite Energy Food can also attract sparrows, thrushes, blackbirds and yellowhammers.

Is Bugs Bunny’s diet of carrots accurate in real life?

Yes, rabbits do like carrots. However, rabbits in the wild do not naturally eat them and, as the carrots have a high sugar content, they should only be fed in very small doses as part of a treat. Perhaps try a Carrot Munchie or, for other treat ideas, Timothy Cakes or Bonanza Bars.

How big should my guinea pig hutch be?

It should be as big as possible – at the very least 100cm long. You should also have a secure sleeping area attached to the run. If they are in an outdoor hutch, you’ll need to ensure there’s shelter from both wind and direct sunlight. And it’s best to bring them inside during the colder months of winter. Try and add some tunnels and hiding areas, with different textures to make things interesting for your pets. Most importantly, it’s vital the hutch can’t be easily gotten out of (or into). You’ll need to keep the hutch safe from predators and escape-proof!

Is it ok to just have one pet rabbit?

Rabbits are social animals and appreciate the company of other bunnies. So, it’s always good to get your bunny a buddy!

How long do rabbits live for? Most rabbits have an average life span of 8 to 12 years. They are definitely not pets to get as an ‘impulse purchase’ – these animals will become beloved members of your family for years to come.
How big should a rabbit hutch be?

It does depend on the size and breed of the rabbit. The SPCA has this to say: “If rabbits live outside, their hutch should be a minimum size of 3m (length) x 1.5m (width) x 0.75m (height) but the bigger the better. The hutch should always be attached to a spacious run to allow your rabbit to hop, run, jump, and stand upright on their hind legs. Ideally, your backyard should be fully fenced, and your rabbits should also be allowed supervised play in the garden.” We think this is great advice to follow.

How much bedding should I have in the bottom of my guinea pig hutch?

It is recommended that at least 3 cm to 5 cm of bedding straw or pine shavings is placed here.

Should rabbits and guinea pigs be kept together?

It is not recommended that the two species be kept together. There’s the risk of disease being spread between them and often the larger species will bully the smaller one.
