Rosco vs Rabbit

Who would have thought rabbits are so crunchie

Scott, I got a q, do you have problems with tapeworms in rabbits in your area. Hunter got one a couple of years ago and it had worms, so we ended up having to deworm him.
Is that not an issue around your area?

Great video by the way, Rosco is looking great, very healthy and happy

How about the danger of splitting rabbit bones? I've heard they are as dangerous to a dog as chicken bones ... I may be wrong.

Cooked bones are very dangerious. Raw bones are not.

as for worms, Freeze meat or fish for at least 12 hours to kill tapeworm eggs and larvae. Anything wild i get I freeze usually for a week or so just to be safe.

sarah, raw chicken bones are some of the softest and most digestible bones for both cats and dogs. it's the cookes ones which are dangerous

I cant watch your video Scott, but sure wish I could ( Dial up you know )
I have been meaning to try my guys and gal on rabbit for a while now but havent found any "deals" as of yet.
Anything I should watch out for, for the first time ex. Diarreah or anything.
I have learnt that lamb and Kita... are not a good match
What is rabbit closest to in the raw meat sence???

Thanks all.

With any new meat, you may want to strip the meat off the bone, and just add it to their regular meal, & build up to it. Its a fairly lean meat, and as you can hear, boney.
