    Overview

Fresh chips at the base of a tree indicate a hole that is still being dug.

Sanitation plays a major role in the health of your rabbit and cannot be overemphasized. Failure to adhere to good sanitation practices will inevitably result in the development of bacterial and fungal diseases.
