Bonding your rabbit with another animal ensures one of his base needs is met. Since rabbits are warren animals (in nature, they live in groups), socializing them is extremely important. In fact, rabbits that do not get enough interaction can become very sick, or worse. For reasons to give your pet a friend, see the article at the bottom of this page (5 Reasons To Bond Your Rabbit).
Before bonding your rabbit, make sure you choose the right partner. It is unsafe to put two or more rabbits together into the same space without proper introductions and a bonding process in place. Ignoring safe bonding techniques can (and likely will) cost your rabbit dearly. It could also cost you a great deal of time and money because of serious injuries to one or both animals. High veterinary bills can be avoided, as can rabbit injuries that result from improperly bonding your pet. Remember, rabbits will fight to the death over food, territory and even mating. Don’t let this happen to your furry friend.
Kits (baby rabbits) are often easier to put into the same space together. However, as they grow, they will need to be separated (usually as they enter the juvenile/teenage stage where hormones begin to rage). Spay/neuter both animals, allow 7-10 days (even 2 weeks in some cases) for after-surgery healing and then rebond them.
