The rabbit-raising problem solver : your questions answered about housing, feeding, behavior, health care, breeding, and kindling. So you just got yourself a rabbit (or five!), and suddenly have tons of questions: Will lettuce kill my bunny?

This book contains answers for owners and raisers of all types of rabbits. Meat or fiber rabbits need the same basic care as family pets, because a rabbit is a rabbit no matter what its purpose. There are many ways to carry out your rabbit husbandry chores, and none of them are necessarily more correct than another — just different.
