For Owners

CompanionshipThis section of the website is aimed at owners of pet rabbits.

Owner's Days

Details of the next Owners Day that is to be held on Saturday 16th September can be found here. As usual, it will be held at Hampsthwaite near Harrogate. Everyone with an interest in pet rabbits is welcome. Some PDF's of the handouts from previous Owners Days can be found here.


Valuable information can be gained from owners survey. Current surveys include 'Favourite plants for pet rabbits', Origin of RHDV in pet rabbits and 'Floppy Rabbit Syndrome-Owners observations'. The results of previous surveys will be published here soon.

Frequently Asked Questions

This part of the website is still in its infancy. At the moment, there is only information about RHD but more topics will be added as time goes on. The idea is to give quick answers to queries that owners may have about the veterinary treatment of rabbits or other aspects of rabbit health and welfare.

Clinical research

Three research projects are underway. They are on:

Floppy Rabbit Syndrome,

Sudden or unexpected death in pet rabbits

Worms in pet rabbits.
