Litter Box Maintenance For Pet Rabbits
Daily cleanup of your pet rabbit’s litter box can go a long way in preventing the buildup of odor while helping maintain hygiene and sanitation. The routine involves scooping out soiled clumps and litter while checking out if there are any changes in the color and consistency that needs to be brought to the attention of a veterinarian. Take note that the more rabbits you have in an enclosure, the more frequently will be the cleaning. The type and amount of litter that is used can also have an effect on the frequency of cleaning and changing of the litter. There is a need to clean shallow litter boxes very day including spot cleaning; deeper litter boxes may need cleaning every 3 days or so. Vinegar is an inexpensive and practical cleaning agent for litter boxes. The acid in vinegar can dissolve calcium deposits from the urine of rabbits.
Observe your rabbit’s urine and feces for any changes that could indicate a health issue that needs an appointment with your animal hospital Ellicott City, MD.
