Cute Alert! What To Consider Before Giving A Baby Rabbit, Chick Or Duck As An Easter Gift

Mar 9, 2017

With Easter next month, many parents may be considering the purchase of a pet rabbit as a surprise for their kids. 

According to the House Rabbit Society, thousands of baby rabbits, chicks and ducks purchased as Easter gifts are improperly cared for and soon abandoned. These and many other small animals can make good pets, but only if they are provided with the care and attention they need, just like the family dog or cat. 

Here to discuss adopting and caring for small animals are Founder of Pampered Pet Animal Rescue, Kelly Montana; Owner and Veterinarian at Glenway Animal Hospital, Diana Cron; and Cat and Rabbit Rescue/Adoption Specialist for the SPCA Cincinnati, John Korra.
