Mini Lop Bunnies

Mini Lop rabbits make great pets. However, they require great care as well. If you don't have time to devote to proper care of a mini lop then you shouldn't get one. Mini lop rabbits have a tendency to be mean if they're not cared for properly. They do this by biting and kicking with their back feet. A good bit of attention is required as well since they love to show off and be noticed.

Mini lops should primarily eat grass hay/timothy hay. Plain pellets without dried fruit and nuts is also best. If they eat food they shouldn't they will get diarrhea and be sick. It would be a good idea to research online so you will know what's best.They also need plenty of water so make sure their water bottle has water at all times.

When you first get your mini lop rabbit you will think it's the cutest bunny in the world. And you will want to hold and pet it just like any other pet. However, it's not like any other pet. It's a rabbit. They have a tendency to be independent kind of like cats. If they want you around they will let you know and on their terms.If it's a male he may be aggressive, so you will need to neuter him within the first year or he may attack you, the kids or anyone he feels like attacking.

Mini Lop rabbits are by nature clean animals and clean themselves like cats. However, it's okay to give bunny a bath if he gets messy. They don't like it much and will try to jump out so prepare for this! After the bath you towel dry and brush the fur. It's also a great time to clip nails and clean inside ears with a Q-tip while fur is out of the way.Clip only the white part of the nail not any of the pink area or you will injure him. To do this you wrap bunny in a towel then lay him upside down. Keep a good grip he may try to twist and jump out! After the bath they want to hide and lick themselves like many animals do.

Keep the mini lops living quarters clean. Which means cleaning the cage/hutch everyday if need be. If not it will stink to high heaven because their urine has a strong odor. Bunny won't like it and neither will you. It's best to buy a hutch that catches the droppings in a pan below so you can clean easier and bunny won't have to sit or lay in a mess.You also need a bunny board for your mini lop rabbit to sit on so the wire of the cage/hutch won't hurt his feet. They're easy to find at pet shops with all the other bunny supplies.As you can see mini lop rabbits need care. Just putting them in a cage and forgetting about them isn't the way to do it.

Like any other pet mini lops need exercise. I let mine run through the house and also outside to play. Otherwise, they can get fat and lazy. I keep my bunny at 5 pounds. When you let bunny out to play you need to keep a lookout for predators.Stray dogs will jump the fence and go for the kill! It's better to be safe than sorry, when you go in take him with you.Play with your mini lop and give him plenty of attention. They love to show off and be noticed. However, not many of them like to be picked up. I sit in the floor and if bunny hops in my lap then I know he's in the mood for company.
