Specialized medical services for rabbits that will prevent illnesses and support their health.
Rabbit care is completely different from how you would treat a cat or dog. Bunnies are usually seen as low-maintenance animals because they are masters at hiding signs of illness. They still require proper nutrition, medical and home care.
