Rabbit Awareness Week 2010

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Rabbit Awareness Week logoRabbit Awareness Week (RAW) commences April 26 this year in the UK. Veterinarians, rescues, and food suppliers will come together to promote good rabbit health and well-being. The focus of this year’s event is obesity in rabbits, a condition which can impede their mobility, cleanliness, digestive health, and more.

According to the RAW press release,

Participating veterinary practices will hold free rabbit check-ups during RAW to help educate and promote good general health (including vaccinations, husbandry, diet, etc) and in support, some of the largest retailers and suppliers of rabbit food will be providing valuable feeding knowledge and information, along with a great range of deals and offers to pet owners.

This year’s RAW is bigger and better than previously celebrated: In association with Burgess Pet Care, Pet Plan Insurance, Intervet, Company of Animals, RWAF, Wood Green Animal Shelters and the PDSA, rabbit welfare can be promoted on a larger scale and reach a wider audience of rabbit owners.

So if you live in the UK and own a rabbit or are thinking of adopting one, this is the perfect opportunity to learn the best way to keep your bunny happy and healthy.
