Hypothermia - low body temperature

Healthy rabbits can tolerate low temperatures if provided with an appropriate sheltered environment. Hypothermia (low body temperature) can occur if they are exposed to damp or draughty conditions or are unwell. Underweight animals, neonates and rabbits recovering from surgery may also be susceptible.

Hypothermia is an emergency and treatment must be provided immediately
