Rabbits are great children’s pets: but are they?
Rabbits have been traditionally thought to be great pets for young kids but unfortunately this is far from true. Rabbits are prey animals and prefer to stay firmly on the ground. They find being picked up very stressful and can be very prone to injury if mishandled/dropped. Rabbits are more suited to adult only households or those with older children (12+).
As with cats and dogs, rabbits can be insured against veterinary costs. Rabbit medicine and surgery is advancing every day, which means there are more treatment options available for either illnesses or injuries. As rabbits can live around 8-10 years, having insurance can provide peace of mind should your rabbit become unwell.
