Litter Training Your Rabbit
People have the idea that rabbit will litter all over the house. But to the contrary, rabbits make wonderful house pets. They’re great companions, and can be litter box trained.
Keep in mind….It’s a good idea to get your rabbit spayed/neutered in order to ease territorial feelings. If you choose not to spay/neuter your rabbit. There is no way to stop the urge to mark their territory.
Below is a list of steps for litter training your new rabbit.
1. Use at least 3 topless cat litter boxes. You can also use a a shallow storage tub.
For litter, use recycled paper litter or shreded newspapers can be used as well. This litter will neutralize any unpleasant urine odors. Do not use clay-based or clumping litter because of the potential harm to your rabbits’ respiratory system. Also avoid wood shavings of any kind.
Put a thin layer of litter at the bottom of the box. It should be just enough to absorb wetness. Use just a little because you will need to dump the litter everyday and too much is a waste of litter.
Rabbits like to eat hay and potty at the same time. So to promote good litter box habits, place hay either directly in the box over the litter or place it in a hay box next to the litter box. If you use a hay box, position it so the rabbit must hop into the litter box in order to reach the hay.
It’s easiest to develop good litter box habits in rabbits by limiting their space at first. Use a puppy pen to confine your rabbit to one area, even if you intend to give him/her free reign of your home eventually. This allows your bunny to get acclimated to the area in the beginning. Once your bunny consistently uses the litter box, you can gradually expand the area. If your rabbit starts “forgetting” to use the litter box, then limit the space again until good habits resume.
Here are a few other tips for those stubborn, “outside-the-box” bunnies:
If accidents occur, mop up urine with a paper towel and pick up stray poop and place both in the litter box. This helps get the message across that the litter box is the place that they should do their business. Keep in mind that rabbits are generally not 100% perfect with their litter box. Sometimes they leave a few droppings next to the box, or they urinate over the edge of their box. This is normal, so placing a plastic mat under their litter box or putting the litter box on a tile floor makes it easier to clean up these little mistakes.
Be patient and persistent. Litter training takes time, especially if your rabbit has learned bad habits. It takes a while to retrain them. If you can see they’re about to go outside their litter box (they may lift their tail or sometimes they sort of shimmy down in a seated position right before they go), try to pick them up and put them in the litter box or corral them in. This is often times easier said than done of course.
If your bunny is insistent on going in one corner of the room, sometimes it’s easier to give in to their stubbornness, and place a litter box in that corner. Sometimes when rabbits consistently choose another place to go, they are trying to tell you that that’s where they want to go.
If your rabbit is pooping/spraying pee everywhere, this is probably due to your rabbit marking his territory. It’s a good idea to get your rabbit spayed/neutered in order to ease territorial feelings.
Sometimes rabbits deliberately pee on your couch or bed because they’re showing you who’s Top Bunny in the house. You should correct their misconception immediately.
Litter training your pet rabbit takes patience and persistence. But in the end, you’ll have a wonderful companion to share your home with.

In my 32 years of practice, there was one trending concern among my clients that was frequently communicated. This concern, […] The post Obesity: Are We Loving Our Dogs to Death? appeared first on Groomer to Groomer – Pet Grooming News, Stories, and Videos…..read more below!@edenzone
One trending concern among my clients that was frequently communicated. This concern, expressed in many ways, almost always translated to this bold statement: “My dog is getting fat and I can’t understand why, because he is a picky eater.” Now, to most people, this problem of obesity correlates directly to overfeeding; however, there are several other causes that factor in. Can we, as humans, all rely on the same diet to maintain our healthiest body weight, regardless of lifestyle, activity level, age, etc.? The answer is no. So why would we think otherwise with our dogs?
Many clients would state that they feed their dogs two cups of food a day, not understanding the reason for weight gain. Rather than make a blanket statement that two cups is right for your dog, I would prompt a conversation asking about the lifestyle, age and activity level of the dog. Also, what type of food are you providing for your dog? There are various factors that come into play when determining the cause of the weight gain in our canine companions.
To feed a dog correctly, one should calculate the kilocalories that your individual dog should eat (including snacks) and then adjust it accordingly for activity. My benchmark statement is, “you should take what the directions state on the bag and drop it by 10%, then adjust in accordance to how the dog does”. Many of the recommendations on the bag are excessive. Dog food manufacturers have done an acceptable approximation of food needed for the weight of the dog; however, they are also in the business to sell dog food, therefore, in my opinion, many of them continue on the lofty end of the scale on their suggestions. Many dog owners choose to free-feed their dogs and they will successfully thrive on the method; however, most of us are not that lucky. Some dogs naturally regulate their body weight and food intake, but many do not know when to stop eating. A substantial issue is human interference. A statement that I received from a client of a grossly obese dog was that his dog was such a picky eater that he had to add canned food to his diet to encourage him to eat (hmm?). Top dressing (adding canned food or goodies) is a common tool many owners do to “love” their dog into obesity. Another common error is providing several different dog foods so the dog doesn’t get “bored”. Boredom is more of a human concern (and sometimes a cat one) more so than a dog issue. If consistency is maintained, then we will see a reduced issue with obesity, because dogs would eat out of need, not out of want. The further you vary their diet, the more they will crave variation—ultimately leading to progressive weight gain. Variation can also be detrimental if you have a dog with food allergies, because the more proteins the dog is exposed to, the greater the chance of an allergy development. Several clients believe that, in order to benefit from the lack of nutrition in certain foods, it is necessary to supplement with alternate foods. This common error by assumption can be avoided by feeding your dog a high quality food from the start. In the modern era, most of our diets are nutritionally sound—at least on paper. The substantial issue is the bioavailability. In the past, many of the diets were animal tested (as listed on the AAFCO statement); however, because of the increased costs of animal testing, a majority have fallen back into the formulated category (as listed on AAFCO statement). This means that the diet meets the qualifications (nutritionally) based on a computer model, but crucially no guarantee that it does in reality (bioavailable). Alternating diet to solve this issue is most definitely not the answer because there is no way of truly balancing the diet in correlation to the deficiency—unless you can pinpoint the exact insufficiency. Visit our website at https://www.edenzone.net
Another area many consumers are not aware of is how things are listed on the AAFCO (American Feed Control Officials) statement, which has led to confusion. The AAFCO statement is on every bag of food and is important to be aware of and educated on. The three main categories from the AAFCO statement (in addition to animal tested and formulated) are the life stages in which the food is designed for. The two categories of the past were adults (not senior), puppies and pregnant bitches. Recently, another stage has been added which is for ALL LIFE STAGES. In order to get this classification with AAFCO, these diets must meet the most stringent criteria, which is the nutritional benefits needed for puppies and pregnant bitches (why not just say that?). So unbeknownst to many consumers, they are feeding their older dog food that is geared towards puppies, thus adding to the obesity issues.
The most consistent issue I found in my years of practice was not the food, but the habitual supplementation of treats within the diet. For years, one influential manufacturer convinced us that by providing their treats to our dogs, we could keep their teeth squeaky clean. Great marketing, but no scientific evidence to back up the claim. Unfortunately, the consumers fell into this propaganda trap and the treats were labeled as beneficial. This of course led to the assumption that, if one treat was beneficial, then additional treats would be even more effective. This translated to every member of the family giving Fido an unnecessary number of treats and now, unknowingly, the dog was provided with significantly more than its recommended daily calorie requirement. Helping our canine companions maintain a healthy weight is very important for their longevity. Many small dogs die from the secondary effects of obesity, which almost always manifest into heart and lung issues. Numerous, if not a majority of, large dogs are euthanized due to arthritis causing back and hip issues, which are exacerbated by obesity. We need to love our dogs to the absolute fullest, but with praise and quality time, not with food. ✂️ Dr. Cliff Faver graduated with a BS in Biology/BA in Chemistry before getting a Veterinary degree in 1987.

Why not take Grit along for the ride? From hunting and fishing to practical preparedness … from managing small acreage to wrangling chickens and other livestock … from improving your harvest to transforming it with preservation techniques … you only stand to gain from Grit’s sage advice, DIY hacks, homestead projects, and crowd-pleasing recipes.
In case of an emergency, you need to have enough food saved up and stored in your pantry. Meals in a Jar includes numerous recipes for ready-made meals that can be eaten if you’re stuck in your home for a few days or weeks. The long shelf life of these recipes make them perfect for disaster preparation.
Pull it off the shelf … Mix with water … Cook … Serve!
No source is left untapped in this all-encompassing guide to supplying lifesaving water after a disaster. Of all the resources needed after a catastrophe strikes (food, heat, electricity, communication, and transportation), none are as important as water! While a substantial supply should be stored, the size and weight of water makes storage impractical for long-term survival. Therefore it’s critical to know how to acquire and purify additional water supplies over time. This guide addresses all of these factors and more with straightforward instruction.
Suitable for novice and expert preppers alike, this book’s laser-sharp focus on water allows for a depth of information not found in any other guide. Storage is the first area covered, including details on types of containers (from basic bottles to large tanks), where to store them, and how to avoid contamination. Author Daisy Luther includes real-world applications for harvesting water from every possible source, including digging a well, collecting rain, and purifying lake and river water.
