Frequently Asked Questions
Are you on the fence about whether a video call is the best option for you? Here are some of our FAQs to help you decide. If you don’t find your answer here, go ahead and book a call and we will help you!
Do I Have To Do A Video Call?
A: No, you can join the call with just audio and talk with our experienced rabbit veterinarians. A video is always an option if you want to meet them face to face or even show them your furry friend!
How Much Does It Cost?
A: It is just a one-time fee of $75 to talk with one of our veterinarians. Although if you are on our email list, keep an eye out for a coupon code!
Can I Cancel or Reschedule My Call?
A: Yes! We allow everyone to be able to reschedule their call. We understand that sometimes things happen and you need to move your time. Canceling is also allowed but there are no refunds.
Can I Choose My Veterinarian?
A: Right now we have two veterinarians taking video calls. Once you book a time it is assigned to the vet that is available.
Spaying and neutering?
A: Most people are familiar with the ability of rabbits to reproduce very effectively. If male and female rabbits are housed together, spaying and neutering are recommended to prevent overpopulation. But more importantly, by performing these procedures before your pet rabbit reaches sexual maturity (by 4-5 months of age, depending on the breed), you can prevent a host of unwanted situations:
- Hormone induced aggression behaviors
- Reproductive cancers – By the age of 4, many female rabbits have evidence of adenocarcinoma of the uterus.
- Testicular cancer is common in unneutered males.
- Unwanted pregnancies
- False pregnancies (pseudopregnancy)
- Infected uterus (pyometra)
- Mastitis (infected mammary glands)
- Marking/spraying behaviors
What MUST you feed your rabbit?
A: HAY, HAY, HAY, and HAY! Hay and daily greens are critical to your pet rabbit’s healthy life. While commercial pellets exist to make feeding easier, veterinarians recommend against feeding a pelleted diet.
When not sleeping or reproducing, rabbits need to chew and eat almost 24/7. This helps keep their gut working properly, and their teeth filed down uniformly to prevent dental disease.
Feeding pellets increases the risk of obesity. A pelleted feed is not needed when a proper diet of free-choice (always available) grass hay is provided and when sufficient greens are fed.

What foods are taboo, and if you feed pellets, what percentage of their diet should be pellets vs. greens and hay.
