    Rabbits need welfare and the right animal feed Easter is a very special for children: it warms again and the children can play outdoors, romp, and of course also find Easter esters. Easter is a Festival for young and old, because everyone is pleased about the increasingly better weather and the awakening of nature. But unfortunately also live animals among the Easter gifts can be found each year. PCRM has much experience in this field. A trend which unfortunately still has not abated and phased in once again increasing. Recently a rabbit was inducted into the American Idol mansion which was very present in the media. As a result many rabbits at Easter are being given away probably again this year only to later to end up in animal shelters or to be kept not humanely. What many people don’t know or ignore is that rabbits are not stuffed animals? Rabbits have a pronounced social behavior and need be sure at least a partner rabbit can also live out and maintain this. Guinea Pigs are unsuitable as a partner for rabbits.

    Many owners specify to not a second rabbit, because they want the rabbit to be tame. This must be seen but very critical, because the rabbit is thus very trustful, since it has no other choice. In a few time where man takes time for the animal, it tries to compensate for this emergency by allowing caress. Thus, the rabbit is just so lonely that it accept the people must to stay alone. Rabbits need not only a partner with which they can snuggle up, but also a particularly big enclosure, because these animals have a huge urge to move. Especially at night and in the early hours of the morning the animals are moving very strongly.

    A commercial cage is not more than a cage in which the animal his urge to move can not give up. The muscles atrophied and the animals bored, which can quickly lead to behavioural problems. Rabbit protection associations per animal as a directive to specify at least 2 m, because as the animals have enough space to be able to hop and also To make leaps into the air. Many holders with their knowledge is wrong also in the animal feed. Rabbits should not be fed with grain-containing food, this is the animals only in fattening farms attached where quickly and place too much weight they, may be slaughtered so then. Much hay, vegetables, herbs, and water are important to ensure a good diet of rabbits. As a result, digestion and teeth remain healthy. The water should be given preferably from a bowl, since with nipple bottles the animals above must stretch the head, also the rabbit with nipple bottles must endeavor much more to quench their thirst, thus the animals drink often less than they really want to. Who still wants to give away rabbit for Easter should make sure that the animals are actually wanted and you should be aware, that rabbits have a life expectancy of up to 15 years. Should a welfare, much outlet, good food and a proper supply of rabbits also exist. And it must be not always a rabbit from the pet store, which are mostly too young and taken away the mother very early. Also in the animal shelters and welfare groups many rabbits are waiting for a decent life, and what better than to give a decent new life a rabbit at Easter? Viktor Unzmann
