First Aid Basics for Rabbits & Pocket Pets
Home / Shop / Classes / FIRST AID BASICS FOR RABBITS & POCKET PETS
Rabbit parents and caregivers know that their lagomorph best friends are NOT small dogs or cats, and signs of distress as well as care differ in many ways. Those who share their lives with rodents (Guinea Pigs, Hamsters, Gerbils, Mice & Rats) must know that their furry loved ones are NOT small rabbits!
Denise Fleck (The Pet Safety Crusader) will take you on a 90-minute self-guided journey into the BASIC care of your lagomorph and/or rodent best friend. She will share with you what signs accompany various illness and injury, and the basic steps you need to take at the time of crisis to minimize complications and pain until you can reach veterinary care.
