The post "Pupsicles for dogs" gave me an idea I'd like to share. Rabbits cannot take the heat too well in the summer, especially those in hutches located in areas where the shade does not cover them all day. Move them to a full shade location or make a bigger piece of plywood to place on top. Have enough to overhang, just about 6- 12 inches over the edges to create more shade.
Also to keep your bunny cooler and treated to a treat you might use this method, freeze some alfalfa and hay in some water in ice trays or small freezer bags that have been place in a container to freeze. When frozen, you can remove from container and stack in freezer. In summertime, you might think about offering it daily or often as possible.
DO NOT feed rabbits iceberg lettuce unless you want to have a very sick bunny! There are other types of lettuce that you should use, so read up on this online via rabbit groups or at the library. I love to keep a bunny rabbit healthy and cool.
