Angora Rabbit Care
Angoras aren't your regular pet bunnies
We love pets because they add so much value to our lives. When it comes to breeding and raising Angora rabbits, however, it's necessary to take into consideration that they require specific environment, grooming, and maintenance standards. IAGARB explicitly details the official standards of care, which include Housing, Caging, Equipment, Nutrition/Water, Sanitation/Rabbit Care, and Environmental Concerns.
German Angoras do not molt in the same way other breeds do, and therefore must always be groomed to keep the coat in good condition. Wool needs to be harvested regularly by shearing. French and German hybrids, however, may molt, depending on which breed's dominant traits appear; once the rabbit is a few months old, molting may become apparent. Both German and French and German hybrids require monthly nail clipping for health and comfort.
Angoras are housed in wire cages which measure a minimum of 8 square feet. An all-wire cage prevents contact with wet and soiled bedding. This not only keeps the rabbit and its fiber clean, it also prevents unnecessary exposure to parasites and harmful bacteria.
Food & Water
Rabbits must have a fresh water supply at all times. In terms of food, they are fed pellets and hay. The daily amount of pellets ranges from 4 to 8 ounces, depending on the rabbit's age and weight.
