SUPPORTIVE CARE / NUTRITIONAL CONSULTATIONS
Many care givers struggle with their rabbits health and diet including being overweight, not eating enough hay or having health complications related to diet. Diet is the key to your rabbits health and nutrition in domestic rabbits is much more complex than simply "eat hay/grass" like a wild rabbit. Age, breed, lifestyle and health needs to be taken into consideration when finding the right diet plan specific to your rabbit and their nutritional needs.
Concerns or questions over general wellbeing of your rabbits.
Improving housing or providing enrichment.
Strengthening your connection with your rabbits.
Diet advice and plans specific to your rabbits nutritional needs.
Alternative therapies and working with your veterinarian to provide the best health care approach.
Helping you understand your rabbits diagnosis better and what you can do to support their condition at home.
Caring for elderly rabbits, special needs rabbit care and managing long term conditions.
The first step is to email and book in for a behavioural consultation to become a remote bonding client. The initial phone consultation will be to discuss your rabbits and build up their case profile, including getting a behaviour and health history of each rabbit involved.
You will be asked to give as much information as possible to your rabbits case so far and their time with you including relevant information about the bonding situation so far. A discussion will then ensue into what the root issues are, what can be done to resolve things and explanations into their behaviour so far and then a plan going forward. This is a long term process and is not going to be a "quick fix", our Behaviourist will work with you for as long as it takes until you have happy buns and a stable bond.
Initial consultations take approx 1-2 hours and include a follow up "overview email" on what has been discussed. Consultation fees are based on communication via email, phone and video - ongoing email advice and assistance should be paid as additional consultation fees. Once a plan has begun there will be follow up email and video footage may be requested.
Bonding itself including introductions will be done via Zoom video calling, these will be done when all rabbits are ready for bonding to begin and a date planned to begin. These video calls will be roughly 2 hours long to assist with behavioural interpretation and guiding you in what to do, when to step in and not to. Plans for bonding progress will be emailed after the initial introduction including discussions on progress and tailoring any method needed to complete bonding and strengthening bonds.
