May is: RABBIT AWARENESS MONTH
For many children rabibits and other small furry creatures such as hamsters gerbils and guinea pigs are often the choice of their first pet. Rabbits and guinea pigs can live anything between 5-10years which means that they are more of a long term commitment compared with their smaller counterparts. As May is Rabbit Awareness month what better way is there to start The Village Vet School than with a a project centred around caring for rabbits and other small furries. Over the next few weeks the children will learn all about about the responsibilities of pet ownership starting with basic rabbit care. We'll focus on vaccinations suitable housing, bedding and exercise, alongside daily essentials such as food, water, grooming and of course love! At the end of the project all the children will be asked to design a hutch and run that caters for all bunnies needs with the best design winning a prize!
