House rabbits are a perfect pet for many people, regardless of
whether they live on a farm or in an apartment. House rabbits are
small, easy to take care of, and don't require any expensive
supplies like some other pets do. They are cute, friendly, and

constantly ill. Also, your rabbit will not be very happy if it
spends most of its time feeling miserable. Unfortunately, rabbits
are very vulnerable to disease.

The best way to protect your rabbit from disease is to make
sure that your rabbit and its cage are always clean.

Regularly clean your rabbit's cage with a disinfectant, and also
give your rabbit an occasional bath.

If you have a new rabbit, quarantine it from the rest of the rabbits
for at least two weeks. If at the end of the two weeks the new
rabbit looks fine, it is probably safe to put it in with the
other rabbits. If you have questions about rabbit care, ask your
