PILING ON THE POUNDS: Regulate diet to prevent obesity in rabbits

RABBIT obesity is among the number one killers of pet rabbits.  Not only will it lower their quality of life, but will shorten it abruptly. The top cause of rabbit obesity is spoiling them too much with treats, as it is sometimes difficult for owners to keep track of how much is being given to them, along with feeding them the wrong food.  Obese rabbits will eventually develop cardio vascular problems, diabetes, arthritis, skin problems, and feet problems that slowly shorten their life.  But symptoms appear only when the condition is severe leaving a very small window for treatment.  Vigilance is the number one shield against rabbit obesity.  Be mindful; regulate the diet, encourage exercise and organise regular vet checkups.
