A chiropractor in San Marcos, CA has broadened his practice by becoming certified in veterinary orthopedic manipulation. Dr. John Harrison is now able to perform treatment to correct muscle- spinal conditions in animals. Harrison practices on cats, dogs and rabbits.
Harrison uses instruments to apply an impulse to a joint to restore fluidity to its movement. Each session costs 50 dollars and it generally takes three to five treatments for results to show.
Among Harrison’s clients are rabbits from the San Diego House Rabbit Society. He treats spondylosis, head tilt, and various gastrointestinal issues. He compares the problems of large rabbits to those of dogs, including hip and spine issues.

When residential areas were ablaze in Chino Hills, CA, many people were forced to evacuate. Fortunately for local bunny owners, The Bunny Bunch, a no-kill, nonprofit rabbit rescue in the nearby city of Chino, CA, offered temporary shelter for their pets.
Bunny Bunch owner Caroline Charland hopes to spread the word about the availability of the shelter as a safehaven in the event of a future emergency situation.
She also urges rabbit owners to be prepared and think about a plan of action in case of emergency. According to Charland, “I tell everybody with a rabbit that they need to have a hard carrier and a soft towel, and have the carrier ready and be ready to leave.”
It is also a good idea to research places that could take your bunny in if you ever needed to evacuate your home.

A new rabbit rescue in Roseville, CA will host their Grand Opening event on September 27, from 4-8pm at the Roseville PETCO on 1917 Douglas Boulevard.
If you live in the area, you can join in on the festivities, which include a ribbon cutting ceremony, petting stations, a silent auction, games, prizes, and of course, the opportunity to adopt a rabbit.
Leaps & Bounds Rabbit Rescue began when Kim DeWoody and Nola Williams decided to dedicate their volunteer efforts solely to the special needs and requirements of rabbits. The rescue cares for its rabbits in foster homes, providing them with medical attention, socialization, and retraining as needed.
