It does seem that smaller rabbits live longer than the larger ones. Also spaying and neutering has a big impact on how long they live...sometimes doubling their life span. I am not sure if yours are spayed/neutered so below is the life span of both. :)
New Zealand Whites live 5-6 years and up to 10 if altered
English Spots live about 8 years and up to 12 if altered.
And dwarfs 10 years up to 12 if altered.
So, if your bunnies are not altered, do discuss having them done with your vet. :) Good luck to you and your bunnies. :)
I had another new zealand white who was neutered when he was around 3 or so when I adopted him from the shelter. he lived to be over 7. Is that good?
the english spot is going to be 12 soon. But I miss my first new zealand white. he passed away from an abscess. I brought him to the vet but he was not eating
