Bunny Fever

While you and your dog are out for a nice spring walk, your pooch just might make some discoveries. One of those might be a rabbit's nest!

If you find a baby out of the nest, and it is injury-free, return it to its nest with as little contact as possible. If the baby is injured, call our office immediately or contact a wildlife rehabilitator.

Protect the nest from your dog. You can either restrict your dog from the area or build a barrier. Keeping your dog away from the nest for at least two weeks should suffice.

The mother isn't gone. Do not disturb the bunnies because the mother will most likely return at night when you are not around.

By following these steps you can help baby bunnies survive their first few weeks of life and more!
