Hoomans say:

Harpy is diagnosed with 3 splayed limbs, however, he is mobile and is able to eat and drink normally. New owners are recommended to provide soft/non slip surfaces for him to rest on to prevent abrasions on his limbs. He will also need a range of motion physio to make sure that there is no muscle wastage.

For rabbit housing, we recommend a playpen of at least 180cm x 120m. Free roaming is ideal for litter-trained rabbits. Please ensure your house is rabbit-proofed, e.g. no exposed wires/cables.

A healthy diet comprises 80% hay, 10% vegetables, 5% pellets, and 5% treats. Hay should be made available at all times. It provides the necessary fibre for a healthy gut and well-ground teeth.

Rabbits do need grooming as well. On average, a short-fur rabbit should be brushed 2-3 times a week, and a long-fur rabbit should be brushed every 1-2 days. Wet baths are not recommended as the sudden change in body temperature can cause hypothermic shock. Powdered baths are not advisable either, as ingestion of perfumed powder can lead to stomach problems.

Inexperienced rabbit owners are encouraged to bring their rabbit to their preferred veterinary clinic or grooming centre to assist with nail trimming.
