Think twice before you buy a bunny for someone for Easter

News release provided by the Monterey County Health Department.

Baby chicks, bunnies and ducks may seem like the perfect Easter basket addition, but think twice! These cute babies grow up into large, adult animals requiring full-time care.

Rabbits make wonderful pets, but they aren't care-free pets. They have to be taken care of just like you would a dog or a cat. Rabbits commonly live for 8-10 years, and can live as long as 15, depending upon the breed, so it is a long-term commitment. Other factors to consider include the fact that not as many vets are experienced with rabbits, so your veterinary costs could be higher than you might expect to pay for a dog.
