A rabbits optimal temperature is 60-70 degrees. Heat strokes and exhaustion can begin being experienced in temperatures around the upper 80’s, especially if the humidity is also high.
My first suggestion is to take any rabbit that appears to be suffering from a heat stroke, heat exhaustion, or warbles to the vet, immediately.
Did you know that rabbits enjoy sitting on bricks or tile during the summer? They are much cooler, and if you dampen them or place a frozen bottle on them, it is even better.
I purchased several ice mats and ice brick packs from the dollar store, and I made this cover to slip them down into, to ensure the fact that the frozen pack wouldn’t damage their skin, and that they couldn’t chew into the ice mat.
