Care of your Rabbit
In hot weather remember to check that water bottles are flowing freely. Make sure they are topped up regularly with cool, fresh water. Some rabbits will also appreciate something cool to lie against, such as:
Move hutches and runs into a shady spot.
Maybe reduce the amount of bedding as certainly many of my rabbits in hot weather kick the sawdust out so they can lie on the bare wood.
Check and clean toilet corners regularly. Flies will be attracted to them.
Make sure the rabbit is clean and dry, check round the eyes and round the bottom as any dampness could again attract flies.
