Unfortunately, our rabbits and rodents are often still treated poorly and underestimated. Many don't know that they are wonderful animals. Rabbits, for example, are very intelligent. They usually get house-trained quickly and learn to do their "business" in their "toilet". Rabbits, guinea pigs and many other rodents must not be kept alone. They are very sociable and only feel comfortable when they live with their conspecifics.
What does animal welfar mean exactly? How large should the cages be, what must absolutely be in the cage and what is under no circumstances allowed to be in the cage? Which is the most appropriate nutrition for these animals? Which vaccinations are absolutely necessary? Which are the most common diseases and which therapies can be applied both conventional and naturopathic. I will be glad to help you.
Myxomatosis and RHD
Two particularly dreaded disease in rabbits are mixomatosis and RHD (Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease). They are lethal for many unvaccinated rabbits, although more and more unvaccinated rabbits are now surviving these diseases. What can you do? Unfortunately, there are no remedies for myxomatosis and RHD. You can only treat symptoms. However, it is possible to support a diseased rabbit with the help of naturopathic means, among other things by strengthening the immune system and the liver, which is one of the most important measures for this disease.
