I’ve owned my dwarf rabbit for almost a year now. She was given to me by a previous owner who had her for about 2-3 years. She is a very timid, nervous rabbit, even with previous owner. She is frightened easily, and never comes when called. I am trying a few different tests, however, I am beginning to suspect she is deaf. What is the best way too tell and how do you care for a deaf rabbit? Thank you in advance for your help.
There’s no easy way to tell if a rabbit is deaf.Ã‚Â But if you stand out of her range of sight and make a loud, sharp noise, and she doesn’t react at all, then there’s a good chance she’s deaf.
A deaf bunny needs no special care.Ã‚Â They do just fine, except that it’s kind to always approach them from an angle where they can see you at a distance first, so you don’t startle them.Ã‚Â For other aspects of proper rabbit care, please see:
