|Rabbits are playful, social animals and it it is best that they are kept with a companion. |
Who should be kept with who?
It is preferable for two rabbits to be introduced at a young age but if this is not possible they need to be carefully introduced when they are older and monitored until you are happy that they have settled together.
Two bucks (males) housed together will fight when they reach maturity, but if they are both neutered they should be fine together. Two does (females) will also live happily together, but you should never keep a buck and a doe together as they will breed.
Can Rabbits and Guinea Pigs Live Together?
Rabbits and guinea pigs should NOT be housed together. Rabbits are much larger than guinea pigs and they are playful so they could easily cause an injury to a guinea pig without meaning to do so.
They also have different dietary requirements as guinea pigs need a diet that is rich in vitamin C, and if they were housed together you could not regulate and monitor their food intake, which in turn could lead to health problems.
