Unfortunately, rabbit owners may have to deal with an emergency involving their pet. It is essential to know how to recognize and deal with such emergencies before they arise and to know who to contact when they do. Immediate veterinary attention can mean the difference between life and death for a very sick or injured rabbit. Getting your rabbit to the veterinary clinic (where all the necessary equipment is on hand) is quicker and gives it a better chance than calling the veterinarian out to your home. The most important thing to remember in an emergency is not to panic! This could cause further anxiety for an already frightened animal and it wastes valuable time.
