    We raise rabbits for meat, but enjoy them as creatures as well.

    Over the years we've had a few health issues and some cropped up this week. It made me wonder, are there introductory vet classes available? Rabbit health classes available? Has anyone ever heard of anything like that? I would love to feel confident in how I am handling their health crises instead of just hoping for the best.

    If not a class, maybe a science-heavy rabbit health textbook?

    Thanks in advance!

    I would love something like that too!
    There's not enough rabbit medicine info out there. I'm a vet tech but my clinic doesn't treat rabbits.

    This is the only book I found on Amazon...but it's pricey! Looks very educational though.

    I'll keep looking for more books/classes though :)
    And welcome to BYH!! :frow
    What state are you in? That will help in my search for classes!
