Developed from the successful Norwegian text Den Store Kaninboka (The Big Book of Rabbits) by the award-winning author Marit Emilie Buseth, Rabbit Behaviour, Health and Care will help you:

  • - develop an understanding of the rabbit’s nature, which will help you to spot normal and abnormal behaviour;
  • - learn about the correct living conditions in which to keep domestic rabbits, in terms of their behavioural, physical and social needs;
  • - acquire essential knowledge about rabbit nutrition, dentistry and disease;
  • - discover a new and improved approach to rabbit-keeping through stories and case examples of real rabbits;
  • - gain a rewarding owner–pet relationship. 


Rabbits are extremely popular pets, but misconceptions about their care and behaviour are widespread. Most illnesses or behaviour problems are a direct or indirect result of poor nutrition and care. This book helps veterinarians and rabbit owners to overcome these challenges by understanding the rabbit’s nature and needs.
