Rabbits have an average lifespan of 10 years and aren’t always the type of low-maintenance pet that many people assume. They need just as much love, care, and attention as any other type of pet. Before you bring a rabbit home, make sure that you can provide a clean and comfortable housing area for your new pet. While rabbits need some time to themselves, they’re also social creatures that benefit from plenty of exercise, enrichment activities, and social interaction.

Since your rabbit will also spend time out of his or her housing unit, make sure that you bunny-proof your home by covering things rabbits are likely to chew on such as computer wires and piles of paper. You also need to have the time and patience to complete litter box training and to provide your new rabbit with proper nutrition. While your rabbit depends on you for good health, you can depend on Pet Assure to cover the costs associated with providing high-quality veterinary care.
