Keeping your small furry safe in winter

  • Provide extra bedding for rabbits and other outdoor pets and be prepared to move them into a shed, un-used garage or utility room for shelter.
  • If you move your rabbit indoors don't put them too close to a heater or radiator as they can very easily suffer from heat stress.
  • If you are keeping your pet outside, beds or hutches should be raised off the ground to prevent the base becoming too cold, damp or rotten. Bedding should always be fresh and dry as it will freeze overnight even if it's slightly damp.
  • Don't house pets in greenhouses or conservatories due to the temperature changes. Also take care if they are living in garages that are regularly used by a car as there can be toxic fumes.
