Love your weekend – update

Here at the RWAF we were disappointed in ‘Love your weekend’ shown this weekend, for many reasons. We’ve had lots of comments and complaints about the segment, and I have now had a chance for a chat with the shows’ vet Dr Navaratnam Partheeban MRCVS. Dr Partheeban was given a very challenging brief, to tell the audience all about the best way to keep rabbits, in a very short segment, on a light weekend lifestyle TV program, focussing on one of the most important issues in keeping rabbits, their diet. Unfortunately, because of the lead into the segment being all about their suitability as children’s pets, a lot of this vital and well researched material was cut short, and he had to cover a lot of other topics around rabbit care in very limited time.
Dr Partheeban fully agrees with the advice on our website and urges anyone who already owns rabbits, or is thinking about them to check out our advice and links on further information and how to find your local rabbit rescue.
