FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
A Compilation of our most asked questions
We’re always happy to answer your questions. We seem to get a lot of the same questions, so we turned those into an FAQ to help as many of you as possible. Check to see if the answers you’ve been searching for are here. If not, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We’ve always got time to talk to pet owners who care!
ARE THE RABBIT'S FIXED?
Our rabbits here at Blue Sapphire Lops are not fixed. That would be your choice to have your new bunny fixed. Having one fixed can be costly and if you only are keeping one bunny, it may not be necessary. However, having your female bunny fixed is highly recommended as it can help lower the risk of her being territorial over the cage area. Spaying and Neutering should be done around 5-6 months of age by your vet.
ARE THE RABBITS VACCINATED?
Vaccinations are not required for rabbits. There are 2 vaccines that can be given to rabbits but we do not vaccinate our rabbits with these at this time. One is for Pasterella the other for RHD.
DO BUCKS OR DOES MAKE BETTER PETS?
In our opinion, bucks make much better pets. Bucks have a calm, loving personality. Does can also make good pets and be very sweet, but they can be territorial in their cages around sexual maturity (about 5-6 months of age) which is why we do recommend having a doe spayed if you chose to have a doe as a pet.
DO YOU HAVE ANYMORE PICTURE'S?
Taking picture's of Holland Babies is hard! We tend to pick the best photo that we managed to snap to post them to find their new families. These guys don't often sit still and most of the photo's end up blurry. So generally there is one, to two photo's to showcase the individual bunny. It is time consuming taking photo's of these guys.
WILL MY BUNNY BE LONELY IF I ONLY HAVE ONE?
Baby bunnies usually get along very well with each other. It is adorable to watch them snuggle, groom and hang out together. However, we do not recommend housing two (or more) rabbits together over the age of 3-4 months unless you plan on having both rabbits fixed. Despite their cute, friendly personality around humans, mature rabbits are territorial and prefer to have their own space when it comes to other rabbits. If you want to try bonding two bunnies, it is best that you pick siblings or bunnies the same, sex and age (within a few weeks) and seek out a local veterinarian to have your bunnies both fixed. Even if both are fixed, it may still not work, and you may end up needed two separate cages/spaces for them.
ARE THE BUNNIES ALREADY LITTER TRAINED?
No, the bunnies are not already litter trained. But they learn very quickly! We have provided information you can read on how to litter train your new friend under the care tab!
