Here’s what our happy customers are saying:
This book has helped out no end with handy tips and useful insight for providing the right environment for our rabbit. Nice clear advice and not too much rabbiting on!
Having had a rabbit a few years ago which was bought for my daughter, we are keen to know whether the care exercised in keeping “Bugs” fit and well was in the right vein. We are happy to know we were right. The book explains in simple to understand easy bites what to consider, when and how. Excellent publication well presented.
