Pet rabbits are a new kind of companion animal. Most pet rabbits do not have the value of fur, fur and meat. Pets are mostly in single-living families and childless families, but there are still many families who consider the safety of children and the habits of cats and dogs, and choose quiet and docile pets, so pet rabbits are a very good direction.

The difference between pet rabbits and edible rabbits

Meat rabbits are mainly used for food and fur. Moreover, they are relatively large in size and heavy in weight, so they are not suitable for raising families. Although they are also good-looking, their ornamental value is relatively low.

When the rabbit eats food, its head extends from the cage mouth into the feeding trough, which can effectively prevent feed and feed pollution, and also prevent the cubs from feeding. The rabbit got out of its mouth. The feeding trough is composed of a feeding port, a storage bin, a feeding trough, and a partition. It is very convenient to feed outside the cage and easy to operate.

2. Rabbit nipple drinker

Rabbit nipple drinker are recommended to use a water supply system in which pure water bottles are hung and connected to duckbill drinking fountains, that is, the pure water bottles on household drinking fountains are hung upside down above the rabbit cage, and a plastic tube is connected to the mouth of the bottle to connect multiple drinking fountains. the rear of each rabbit cage.

3. Feces and urine separation sewage system

Feces and urine separation sewage system This is a very important link. The advantage of feces and urine separation is that it can greatly reduce the concentration of ammonia in the rabbit house and reduce the irritation to the rabbit's mucous membrane.Thereby controlling the occurrence of infectious rhinitis and respiratory inflammation.

4. Rabbit litter box

The farrowing box is the main facility for artificially simulating the cave environment for female rabbits to give birth and raise young. The warmth retention, ventilation, size and shape of the production box, the bedding in the production box and the placement of the production box, etc., all have a great influence on the survival rate and development of pups.It is recommended that everyone use sealed or cave-type production boxes.

3. Cage bottom plate; the cage bottom plate is the key part of the rabbit cage. The best cage bottom plate is the front plate and rear slatted type, that is, the front 2/3 of the cage bottom plate is glue wood board, and the rear 1/3 is slatted bamboo board.
