Rabbits should receive annual health checkups. Veterinarians may examine rabbits using techniques similar to those used for dogs and cats. Veterinarians typically examine the mouth to evaluate dental health. Sex can be determined by depressing the external genitalia to reveal a slit-like vulva in females or a penis in males. The testicles descend at 10 to 12 weeks. Normal body temperature is 103°F to 104°F (39.4°C to 40°C). A body temperature of less than 100.4°F (38°C) or greater than 105°F (40.6°C) is cause for concern. Spaying or neutering helps prevent unwanted litters, spraying, aggressive behavior in males, and uterine cancer in females.

Caution is necessary when using antibiotics that suppress the normally occurring, harmless digestive system bacteria in rabbits. The use of inappropriate antibiotics may result in an imbalance in intestinal bacteria, severe diarrhea, or even death. This has been called antibiotic toxicity. Antibiotics that should not be used in rabbits include clindamycin, lincomycin, erythromycin, ampicillin, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, and cephalosporins. The flea treatment fipronil should not be used in rabbits because it may be poisonous for some individual
