A Family Guide to Buying, Keeping and BreedingBook - 1999
The pet rabbit population of the United States is well over ten million...and rapidly multiplying! Carrying less risk of diseases for their human companions than do domestic dogs or cats, rabbits are gentle, responsive, amenable, cuddly, clever, intelligent, and inexpensive. In sum, they're ideal pets and they deserve the best of human attention. Veterinarian surgeon David Taylor reveals how to care for your rabbit, including an overview of the hare's origins in Spain, identifying features of the various breeds, their behavior and biology, finding the right rabbit for you, good housing for longevity, and looking out for signs of illness. Interspersed throughout are "Did You Know?" sidebars featuring little-known facts about our beloved furry friends. 96 pages (all in color), 5 7/8 x 8 1/4.
