When caring for a rabbit you should remember to take it to the veterinarian to make sure that every thing is healthy and to get the rabbit the help it needs if there is a problem. You should carry the rabbit gently from under the paws so that it will not get hurt from falling out of your hands if it is frightened and tries to run away. You should also make sure to carry it close to your chest so that it won't be as frightened when it is being carried. You need to make sure that you have a pleasant place for it to live and sleep and you need to remember to that you should always give a rabbit time to adjust to its new surroundings. It is normal for the rabbit to appear skittish when you first buy it because it may not be comfortable or familiar with some things.
