To take care of a rabbit or rodent you need several things. Proper nutrition and housing are the foundation, but you can do more to keep your nibbler happy.
Expand your knowledge and find the supplies for healthy rabbits and rodents.
With the right food, your rabbit or rodent will stay fit for longer. Choose premium nutrition so you can be sure of the quality. For rabbits and large rodents, it is best to choose animal-specific food. Their nutritional needs can differ enormously. And especially animals like chinchillas need special nutrition. For older rodents, there is senior food that supports old age ailments.
Do you want to reward your rabbit or rodent? You will certainly make him happy with a snack! Nibbling on a snack also prevents stress and boredom in your animal. It is important to choose responsible rodent and rabbit snacks. As a result, your animal does not receive any rubbish and the snack contributes to good health.
Rabbits and rodents are very sensitive animals. A guinea pig itself does not produce vitamin C. With supplements you increase the resistance and condition of your animals. Supplement the daily diet with this after you have discussed this with the vet.
Houses with a run are ideal for rodents and langurs. That is an extra fence to the cage, which gives the animals more freedom of movement. Such an outdoor run is therefore useful to prevent stress, boredom and overweight. A checklist for choosing the accommodation itself:
There are various materials that you can use as ground cover. From wood chips to coconut and recycled paper. Always buy granules or chips specially selected for rabbits and rodents. They are free of additives and chemicals. To dress up your stay, use different bedding materials. But be careful with hamsters; they have sensitive legs and airways. Litters containing coniferous wood are not suitable for them.
Fun, different toys are indispensable to keep your pet happy. These provide the necessary challenge - also mentally - and train the muscles. This keeps the animals fit for longer. Playing with your pet can also strengthen your bond.
Remove dirty bedding from the enclosure every day and change it completely at least once a week. For extra freshness, use urine cleaners. They are also useful if your rabbit or rodent has had an accident indoors.
Coat care is important for rabbits, guinea pigs and other large rodents. This will keep your animal's coat healthy and protect its skin. Choose the right comb based on the length and roughness of the coat.
“They can't talk, but they can hide well”. If a rabbit or rodent is sick or injured, it keeps it hidden for as long as possible. This is difficult because a small condition can be fatal for him. Daily checks and quick action is therefore a must. Prevent dehydration in case of diarrhea and remedy dry eyes with special drops. For small wounds there are products with which you can do the wound care yourself.
