Has anybody tried using rabbits for pet therapy in their workplace? If so how do you implement it along the lines of hygiene, type of basket, how long to use the rabbit etc.....

Katija we had a rabbit, problem was that by keeping it inside you need to clean the cage everyday as it smells, staff and management get on your case. We end up putting the rabbit outside but for some reason the rabbit became unfriendly, so we had to get rid of the rabbit. i have had better luck with a bird, our bird enjoys sitting on residents shoulders, chatting away. The residents love her. She a cockatiel and enjoys the attention she gets from the residents. The cage is easy to clean, the residents enjoy cleaning and feeding the bird. You do need a permit for the bird!
