My Daily Rabbit Routine

Establishing a daily routine for taking care of your pets is one of the easiest ways to stay on top of their care. Daily interaction with your pets will help you notice any changes in their health or behavior, as well as give them regular interaction with you. Today, I’m sharing my own daily routine with my two rabbits to help you get an idea of how you can establish your own routine with your pets!

Morning Routine

I work full time, which means I leave the house around 6:15 every morning and don’t get home until around 5:30 pm. This means my pet care is split into a morning routine and an evening routine. First, let’s go over what I do every morning.

First, I turn on the pet room lights and check where the bunnies are. Sometimes they are in the dining room and sometimes they are waiting for their food.

Next, I give pellets to everyone. I start out with the bunnies because they’re the most impatient, and then I feed all the guinea pigs. Usually, the bunnies are sprinting into their room and spin around my feet when they realize it’s time for pellets!

I then check on everyone and make sure everyone came out to eat breakfast and is looking normal and healthy. This is important because you don’t want to miss any signs of illness in your pets because you didn’t check on them!

I also check to make sure the bunnies have water and refill their hay racks if needed.

I’ll also mention that if anyone needs any medications or supplements, I do that very last thing in the morning.

That is pretty much my entire morning routine with the pets! Mornings can be a little bit rushed and hectic, so I keep my morning routine down to the bare minimum of things that need to be done.

Lunch Time

Even though I’m gone at work all day, pig dad does come home for lunch every day. He checks on the pets when he’s home and also gives them a midday snack.

Evening Routine

I get home from work around 5:30 on most days, but pig dad gets home right around 5 because he works much closer to home than I do. When he gets home he gives the pets their dinner, which means veggies!

Both the bunnies and the guinea pigs get their veggies at dinner time. The guinea pigs get green or red leaf lettuce, green pepper, and a cherry tomato each. The bunnies usually get a little bit of lettuce, kale, cilantro, and bok choy.

When I get home from work, most of the animals are already done eating. Once I’m done getting changed and settled in for the evening, I do my own rounds with the pets.

I refill hay bags as needed and check on water bottles as well. Every other day the bunnies’ litter box also gets cleaned out. I also spot-clean the guinea pig cages every night.

Throughout the evening I spend time with the pets in different ways, whether I have other tasks that need to be done or if I’m just spending time with everyone. It just depends on the night and what else I do with the pets. A lot of times we interact with the bunnies when they come out into the living room or dining room throughout the evening.


I usually go to bed around 9:30 or 10 o’clock every night and I put the pets to bed at the same time I go to bed. Usually, all I need to do at bedtime is give any medications or supplements that anyone is currently on, check water bottles, and refill hay bags as needed. I also do a final check of everyone just to be sure everyone looks good and settled for the evening.

I really think having a daily routine with your pets is not only helpful to ensure you don’t forget any pet chores but also to help you stay on top of your pets’ health. Spending time with your pets every day and checking on how they are looking and acting can be one of the simplest things you can do to notice a problem early. What does your daily routine with your pets look like?
