Information from Our Rabbit Experts

Animal experts at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center share their knowledge about rabbits.

Q
How can I keep my rabbit comfortable in summer heat and humidity?
A
Rabbits are unable to sweat; they can only dissipate heat by panting, but they aren’t very efficient at it, so they can easily become overheated. Rabbits will often reduce feed intake during hot weather to reduce the heat produced by the metabolism of food. Help your rabbit survive the summer by making sure it is always in the shade and has plenty of air movement around it, even using a fan. Plenty of cool, fresh water is a must. In extreme heat, put a sealed plastic bag full of ice in your rabbit’s pen. Switch gradually to a more nutrient-dense feed at the beginning of summer to help maintain production (weight gain or lactation) when rabbits reduce intake due to heat.
