Rabbit Wellness Info from HRS: Did you know that a rabbit's normal temperature is between 101 and 103 degrees? Furthermore you can't tell a rabbit's temperature by feeling their ears, which are their primary mechanism to regulate body temperature throughout the day and can vary from feeling warm to cool.
A rabbit that has a temperature below 101 is going into shock and at risk of serious health issues, or if prolonged, possible death. Things such as gastrointestinal issues, extreme stress, pain or complications from other health issues can cause a rabbit's temperature to drop below or rise above normal levels, and a rabbit that has a temperature below 101 degrees will not respond as needed to medications or other treatments. When a rabbit is in distress the most critical items to address are #1 temperature, #2 hydration. The Georgia House Rabbit Society recommends that all rabbit owners keep a flexible thermometer and some form of a heating pad/heating source in their "emergency tool kit", andbe experienced in taking a rabbit's temperature.
