What do you call a happy rabbit? A hop-timist! On today's Animal Instinct, host Celia Kutcher takes listeners through the 'need to knows' about rabbits before the Easter holiday hits! Welcoming guest Dayna DeCarlo to the show, she has been a rabbit owner for 22 years and has her own pet walking business that takes care of dogs, cats, and even bunnies. Starting off the interview with bunny basics, the conversation delves into details such as locating an appropriate exotic veterinarian, the importance of spaying and neutering, plus realizing that because rabbits are prey animals it can be difficult to detect illness. After the break, Dayna explains the concept of 'bunny speed dating' and the amazing life span of these furry friends. Tune in to find out more! This program was brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.
