Resolved Question:

Hi we live in Scotland, where we have very cold winters, we have a one year old female rabbit whom we kept as a house rabbit until near the end of summer this year, we put her outside in a wooden hutch, placed the hutch inside a polythene greenhouse, but now worried that she wont make it through the winter! Is it safe to bring here back in the house?

Customer:

Hi

Dr_Kitty :

hello

Dr_Kitty :

so is your concern bringing the rabbit in suddenly?

Customer:

Have you read my question about my bunny?

Customer:

yes!

Dr_Kitty :

what is the temp there now....have to tell me in farenheit tho :) im in US

Customer:

its not very cold at the moment i am more worried about how cold it is going to get! i dont know how to convert! its about 1 celsius! hope that helps :)

Dr_Kitty :

if it is not too cold now, you can move her back inside

Dr_Kitty :

if there is not a big temperature extreme you can move her. if it is significant, i would try to move her to possibly an enclosed porch or a room that isnt heated as warm as the rest of the house

Dr_Kitty :

so that is about 33 degrees farenhit which is somewhat cool

Dr_Kitty :

can you move her into an intermediate cooled/warmed area?

Customer:

i have nowhere to put her, apart from indoors, but i dont have the heating on upstairs just now so it is very cool, would that be ok?

Dr_Kitty :

that would be great

Dr_Kitty :

keep her there a few days then move her into house temperature

Customer:

perfect! thank you so much for your time :)

Dr_Kitty :

hope she does well. watch for any snuffling or sneezing and see a vet if you do. if you do it slowly, should not see this. If i have been helpful, please remember to rate me when you exit chat :) thanks!

Customer:

thank you! have a nice day! :)

Dr_Kitty :

you too!
