We were thinking about purchasing a large ball to put our bunny in so that he can run around safely without us having to bunny-proof our home. Are there any dangers with doing this?
Thank you for your question! Exercise balls should not be used for rabbits. There are none that are large enough for a rabbit, would not provide adequate ventilation and would force your rabbit to curve it’s spine at an awkward angle. Rabbits also don’t walk or run like small rodents do, they hop, which would make it extremely difficult for them to move around comfortably in a ball. I would suggest bunny proofing an area of your home so your rabbit can move around and stretch it’s legs naturally.
