Rabbit Allergies

by The Pet Medicine Chest

Does your rabbit have allergies? Have you spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars, perhaps even thousands of dollars for your beloved rabbits on allergy problems and your rabbit is still terribly uncomfortable? Is he/she still scratching incessantly? Does your little friend still have runny eyes, itchy skin? Does it still sneeze? Does it have bare spots too?

Have you subjected your rabbit to costly and painful blood tests time after time to no avail?

Are you sick of giving him/her the extremely expensive and toxic drugs that every veterinarian you have taken your rabbit to prescribes and they still do no good for your rabbit? Have you made the rounds of every vet in your area?

Are you sick of your furry companion still being sick?

Well, relax. You have just found the right place to bring your rabbit back to health. We don't recommend drugs, we don't do blood tests, we don't do urine tests. We merely recommend common sense and Mother Nature's herbal bounty to restore your rabbit's health, vitality and happiness based on over 180 cumulative years of experience in dealing with rabbit health issues. Do you think rabbits have allergies in the wild?

Allergies appear to be more and more of a diagnosis with the rabbit population today. Thousands of rabbits with everything from runny eyes, a runny nose, sneezing, hot spots, scratching, itching, to the rabbit scraping its bottom on the floor/ground are all being labeled as allergies.

What causes allergies? Twenty or forty years ago, did your rabbit have allergies? Why are allergies becoming such a problem all of a sudden? Let us jog your memory and get you to thinking too:

Twenty to forty years ago, did you or your parents feed your rabbit rabbit food from a bag? Did they give their rabbits vaccinations for everything under the sun then? Did they worm him/her with toxic chemicals? Did they spray their lawns with chemicals or apply synthetic fertilizers every spring and fall? Did they have carpet in every room in their house? Did they use lots and lots of chemicals in their home for cleaning?

If you take a minute and think through the answers to these questions, you will begin to analyze and realize what has changed in our society which is affecting the health and well being of your furry little companion.

Not so very long ago, very few people fed their rabbits any kind of commercial rabbit food. Most everyone fed their rabbits from the table scraps of leftover fresh food that Mom prepared for the family. Most of us couldn't afford to buy food for the family pet, so Buffy ate right along with the rest of the family. Many of the serious champion rabbit breeders had their own special food formulas made for various ingredients such as corn, alfalfa, oats and other small grains. These provided lots and lots of badly needed fiber in their rabbit's diet.

What did they cook? Fresh grains of all kinds like oatmeal, potatoes, carrots, corn, peas, string beans, sweet potatoes, squash, rice, egg noodles, etc, etc. These foods were prepared from fresh ingredients and were prepared daily just like for the human members of the family. The pet population not only was healthier, but they also lived longer than rabbits do today. Think about why that is. Fresh, fresh, fresh wholesome nutritional food is absolutely essential for health and vitality for any animal including us humans.

Giving a rabbit dead food from a bag that may have been sitting in a warehouse for six months or longer can never replace fresh cooked food that you can provide your rabbit no matter what anyone tells you. Even if the food is "fortified" with vitamins and minerals, it can never approach the same quality of fresh cooked food that comes from your kitchen. Besides that, fortified food today is fortified with synthetic vitamins that the body cannot absorb.

Our first recommendation is to prepare fresh food for your rabbit and don't listen to the soothsayers. It will take you about a week to get into the routine, but after that you will develop a routine that both you and your little friend enjoy together. Now those of you with hundreds or thousands of rabbits, this is of course out of the question. What you can do however, is make sure your rabbits are not being feed toxic genetically modified food. This is a whole other story, but sufficient it to say that these foods are causing lots and lots and lots of healthy problems with rabbits today.

What about a raw food diet? Definitely a raw food diet is excellent for rabbits. We recommend you try both cooking and raw and see what your pet prefers, then go with their wishes. They know what they like.

Being from Iowa and all of us here being born on a farm, we know what goes on in agriculture. When an animal dies on the farm today, the farmer calls the rendering truck to come pick up the dead, diseased animal. At one time we farmers would drag the dead animal to the edge of a forest, take a knife and cut a small opening, then leave. The coyotes and other wild animals would then feast on this dead creature and feed their young. Now days, the farmers call a rendering truck.

What does the rendering truck do with the dead animals? You guessed it. These dead diseased animals go into food for your rabbit, cats, pets of all kinds as a "protein product" and if you can believe it up until a couple of years ago back into feed for other alive livestock just like the British did. This is where the mad cow disease began--cows eating other cows!!! How utterly disgusting and scientifically flawed!

Where do the euthanasized rabbits and dogs and cats go? You guessed it again. To the rendering truck and back into other feed for rabbits and dogs and cats. Now, is it any wonder your rabbit has allergies?? You definitely need to prepare fresh food for your rabbit if you wish to begin to eliminate allergy conditions.

About those vaccinations. Most of us are required by law to vaccinate our rabbits for rabies every three years. Lots of us are told by our vets to vaccinate every year "to be safe". This is NOT necessary. The rabies vaccination lasts for three years and this is what we do. However, the vaccinations STOP RIGHT HERE. We do not nor do we recommend that you vaccinate your beloved little companions for anything else period. We do not believe that putting a foreign substance into our rabbit's body is "good" for its body. We believe a very wholesome diet and a very strong immune system will take care of our and your rabbits' health.

In fact, we have case after case of customer's rabbits who have had horrible reactions to a vaccination and several rabbits have even died. For what? What law is requiring this vaccination? Why do people get terrorized into vaccinating their rabbits? It all revolves around money as we all know. If you provide your rabbit with a good fresh diet and good clean filtered water daily, then you will have a rabbit that can withstand 99% of any health threats. Don't put toxins into your rabbit just because of peer pressure. It is harmful to your rabbit.

What about tape worms and other worm drugs? How do these cause allergies? The toxic build up within the rabbit's body as a result thereof is the root cause of allergies. There definitely is a better, nontoxic and safer way to make sure your rabbit does not get worms. We never use nor recommend anyone use that extremely toxic and extremely dangerous method of preventing worms. These chemicals have been known to cause all kinds of allergic reactions to this poison.

When a person sprays their lawn with toxic chemicals and/or synthetic fertilizers, then allows their rabbit to roam and play on this same now beautiful but dangerous lawn, many many times a rabbit will have an allergy problem as a result. The toxins get into your little pet's body through its paws and skin. The liver and kidneys cannot clean its overloaded system.

What about all those chemicals in the house. Can this really affect my rabbit? Most definitely and you too for that matter. High concentrations of pesticides and all kinds of toxic materials are tracked into our homes by our pets and ourselves. Airborne contaminants, cleaning chemicals and even cooking contaminants from teflon pans settle on the floors and especially the carpets. Unlike the same compounds that will eventually breakdown from exposure to sunlight and rain, these indoor pollutants can remain intact for years. This is why it is so dangerous for small children and rabbits to be continually exposed to these toxic substances. This is also why a person who has a rabbit who died of cancer, then gets another rabbit and that rabbit will often die of the same type of cancer. These indoor toxins are extremely dangerous to man and animals. First they appear as allergic symptoms, then tumors may develop, then cancer may be detected, then it is only a matter of time before other serious and often fatal health problems exist.

Allergies are a symptom or signal if you will. Really, allergies can be a blessing. These so called "allergies" are really a signal that there is something really wrong with your rabbit's environment and its internal body. You can now take steps to clean your rabbit's body, its living quarters while at the same time cleaning your own home and making it as free as possible of toxic contaminants. Your rabbit may be saving your life too in many ways--your emotional life, your physical life, and your health.

But, you say, "I don't have chemicals in my home and I feed my rabbit an all natural food and I give it good clean water and it still appears to have an allergy problem. What would you recommend now?"

A true allergy situation can exist particularly if your rabbit's immune system is weak. The first thing we would recommend is to build your rabbit's immune system. Building the immune system is relatively easy by giving your rabbit the best nutrition you possibly can; by adding the proper herbs to its diet and by adding the essential digestive enzymes that are so essential for the over all well being of your little companion.


There are food borne allergies and air borne allergies. It is relatively easy to check for food borne allergies. What one can do is to cook different grains, different vegetables and fruits. Test the starches one by one to see how your rabbit reacts. Most of today's commercial rabbit food contains corn, soy, wheat and other grains. These same grains cause allergies in people and just may be causing an allergy with your rabbit.

Our rabbit's ancestors ate grasses, grains, nuts all kinds of weeds and whatever else they could find to nourish them all year round. You might even try and provide sprouts for your rabbit. They love all kinds of sprouts and they are wonderful for your rabbit's health.

To sum this up, it is easy for you to test your own rabbits response to food borne allergies by cooking different ingredients as though your rabbit is a very special member of your family. A different menu each week followed by your finely tuned powers of observation will help determine if your rabbit has a food allergy. No expensive stressful tests are necessary. Just a little more effort on your part can and will do the trick.

For airborne allergies, testing for these is much more difficult. Again our first recommendation is to build your pet's immune system and clean its body, then go from there. Our second recommendation is to do your own testing of food allergies first, then observe how your rabbit's health is from this point.

Third, check your house for toxic chemicals. What toxic cleaning supplies are you using on a regular basis? Could you use chemical free cleaning products instead? Do you have carpeting which collects airborne contaminants? How long has it been there? Could it be removed without costing a fortune? Could you eliminate these chemicals from your house? Did you recently paint or bring in new furniture or flooring? Many of these are toxic to animals, so you need to be aware of how your rabbit is feeling and responding to your new additions. Could you get an ozone air cleaner for your house? This will help clear the air?

Once a person is aware that there is something that can be done besides paying out lots and lots of money for testing, then you can actually do something about these airborne allergens yourself. You just need to start thinking about your lifestyle, the products you use in your home and around your pet. Then eliminate as much of the toxicities that are lurking in your home causing damage to both you and your pet. Keep building your rabbit's immune system on a regular basis.
