Book Description

March 1 2005
All aspects of rabbit care for both new and experienced pet rabbit owners are discussed in this handbook. Detailed information on how to house, feed, and train rabbits is provided, with a comprehensive medical section on creating a first aid kit, diagnosing different rabbit diseases, and giving emergency care. Rabbits make up one of the fastest-growing segments of the pet population, and with more pet owners choosing to keep their rabbits indoors full time, this guide lays out practical information for making rabbits a healthy part of any family.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Wish This Book Had Been Available Years Ago Oct. 23 2005
By E. Richards - Published on Amazon.com
I acquired a rabbit in March of 2001, rescuing him from an uncertain fate in a vacant lot. In September of 2001, he ate the buttons off my remote control. If I had had this book back then, I'd still have buttons on my remote. Yes, the remote control is a favored chew toy of a busy bunny, acording to Ms. Moore. I believe it. He has since bitten the "on/off" button on the remote for my cable, too.

That said, this is an excellent, no-nonsense guide to keeping a rabbit in the house. It describes breeds, feeding, medical considerations and, most importantly (to me, at least), how to "read" a rabbit. If you've never had a rabbit before, you may find them a bit inscrutable compared to a smiley, waggy dog or a purring, kneading cat.

The breed descriptions are interesting. You'd think that it was "big white bunny", "big lop eared bunny", and "tiny bunny". But, there are a lot of breeds, from the Flemish giant, who is the size of a Maine Coon cat, to the Netherland Dwarf, who is the size of an overfed guinea pig. There are a lot of coat desriptions from the Dutch rabbit, which looks like a police car, to the Jersey Wooly, who looks like a tribble from "Star Trek".

(I consider mine a mini Vacant Lot Lop.)

There's a section on special needs rabbits. This is an interesting facet of rabbit-keeping that I was unaware of when I picked up a stray rabbit in a vacant lot and took him home. Rabbits are fragile and can injure their backs easily. Many knowledgeable rabbit keepers are able to provide an injured or even paralysed rabbit in a comfortable and happy existence. This book outlines care for such delicate creatures.

There are a few black and white photos, but the descriptions are really well done enough that those photos are just there for seasoning.

Another bonus in this book, is that it appears to be in 14 point type, which meant I did not have to wear glasses to read it, but my middle-aged presbyopia is another story.

4.0 out of 5 stars good book for beginners and "intermediates" April 26 2005
By bunnyluvr - Published on Amazon.com
I was pleased to see a new house rabbit book on the market. While I found it slightly less complete than the House Rabbit Handbook by marinell harriman, it still covers most of the basics. It is a bit weak in the following areas:

The author writes about rabbits through an observation of her own house rabbits and I disagree with a few statements she made in the book.

Lack of colored pictures or many pictures at all

facts about nutrition not all 100% accurate.

Howver, I'd recommend it to one who is new to rabbits or has some experience but wants to learn a bit more. Overall, it is an enjoyable book to read and is the type of book you would probably need to read cover-to cover as opposed to using it as a reference
