Now updated–a highly informative guide to the joys of bunny ownership

Rabbits For Dummies gives readers a well-informed look before hopping headlong into the wonderful world of raising rabbits. From choosing a rabbit and preparing its home to feeding, grooming, and training, this practical guide provides a wealth of hutch-tested tips. Packed with informative photographs and beautifully detailed illustrations, Rabbits For Dummies includes up-to-date veterinary information, explains rabbit body language, advises on treating common rabbit maladies, covers the latest on organic cuisine and homegrown feeding options, and suggests training tips for acclimating a new bunny into the household.

P.S. If you think this book seems familiar, you're probably right. The Dummies team updated the cover and design to give the book a fresh feel, but the content is the same as the previous release of Rabbits For Dummies (9781119696780). The book you see here shouldn’t be considered a new or updated product. But if you’re in the mood to learn something new, check out some of our other books. We're always writing about new topics!
