    I have two rabbits, and I use Aspen shavings in their litterbox, which is changed every 24 hours. As you all know, bunnies go a lot. I use Aspen because in my opinion it is the most safe and has little to no smell for the household. It can be quite expensive in the pet stores to buy, so I wanted to share my local place where I get a Bail of Aspen Shavings for $16.95 plus tax. It lasts quite a while. This is much cheaper than pet stores. Their info is:

    Welcome Feeds
    2165 Durham Hwy #2, Bowmanville
    905-623-5777

    Also wanted to mention that I use a shifting litterbox for the rabbits which works great! Cheapest at Canadian Tire. The plastic grate pan fits into the regular pan. I use the aspen shavings for their litter (thick enough so their feet will not feel the plastic grate). Their pee drains through to the bottom pan and therefore keeps their feet dry and clean. (I threw out the top frame of the pan that is to prevent stop cats from kicking litter out when digging).

    Hope this is helpful.

    A great new store has opened downtown called Pet Social! It’s a beautiful little space with a small animals shelf and a really strong community focus. Right now they’re carrying JoJo’s Best hay and pellets, and some toys etc., but they’re still building their inventory — if you’re looking for something in particular, ask about special orders! And look forward to their events!

    Hello again,

    Also found on the Rabbits Online forums, which may or may not be relevant, is how to avoid the UPS/FedEx brokerage fees when shipping with UPS/FedEx from the States to Canada (for bunny goods).

    Hello,

    Other possible hay places in the GTA:

    Found Family Farm
    Both timothy and alfalfa hay are available
    Price: $5 per bale
    Courtice, ON
    Comment: Stan is the farmer here where you purchase hay from. A rabbit friend buys hay from him.

    Kemps Premium Meats
    There are two bale mixes you can purchase here: 50/50 timothy/alfalfa, or 80-90/20-10 timothy/alfalfa
    Price: $4.25 per bale
    4461 Edgerton Rd
    Blackstock, Ontario
    L0B 1B0
    905-986-5095
    Email
    Comment: I have been purchasing hay from Kevin Kemp since August 2011, which is approx. 7-8 bales. Very green timothy hay. Lovely organic farm with a few small apple trees right by their barn. Lots of horse farms nearby that you can visit as well (to the left, right, across the street). Small square bales measure approx. 3 ft. by 14inches by 12 inches. If you have a trailer wagon (and many rabbits/guinea pigs), he sells large bales as well.

    Hope this helps.

    Local Hay!

    Local hay can be way less expensive than hay from the pet store. I found these through the RabbitsOnline.net “Canada East” board, and called around to confirm the info (but do keep in mind that supplies are always changing). Remember that alfalfa and other legume hays are high in protein and not recommended for most adult rabbits, except maybe as an occasional treat or in very limited amounts — speak with your vet to find out what’s right for your bun.

    Bales4Bunnies
    215 Lake St, Peterborough
    (705)772-1988
    Pick-up, and limited local shipping and delivery
    Bales $10, bags $8
    Bales are 80-90% timothy with some other grasses and alfalfa; bags have even less alfalfa as they’re hand-picked for quality from the bales

    Peel Seed Co-operative
    (905)846-2211
    10064 Hurontario St, Brampton
    Pick-up and regional delivery
    Timothy-alfalfa hay mix, and rabbit pellets

    Merrybrook Farm
    (905)878-6237
    9110 4th line, RR#5, Milton

    Bunny lovers! I just discovered a very cool, new line of products called The Blue-Eyed Bunny. I found them at Tails. They make 100% all natural treats and chew toys for bunnies (and other small pets). Their apple sticks are organic and everything they make is free of adhesives, dyes or sugar. (Hard to find that in some of the more commercial brands!) Their packaging is biodegradable and/or compostable. They also have tremendous social values and actively support animal adoptions as well as child sponsorship and programs for women in developing countries. Very cool for bunnies AND the world. I think you can even order online through Tails’ website if you don’t live nearby. (P.S. The dried Bunny Green herbs are incredible – totally fragrant and unlike lettuce in your fridge, doesn’t go bad!)

    Editor’s note: Tails also sells other bunny supplies, like hay, pellets, dishes, etc!

    Tails
    2211 Queen St E, Toronto
    (647) 436-2529
    E-store, Small Animals category

    In terms of online Canadian rabbit supply stores — in the GTA there is Canadian Pet Connection [shipping and two storefronts], Yay 4 Hay [local delivery], and Flower Town Chinchillas [shipping and pick-up]. Montreal Critters ships, too, and the Rabbit Rescue store [shipping] carries a lot of great items.

    Woodstove pellets can be found at several Rona locations around the GTA usually sells for between 6-8 for a 40lb bag.

      Just an update:
      I’m fairly certain that Yay4Hay has shutdown.

    Dunlea Farms promotional material; black and white rabbit eating out of a cardboard hay feeder with 'Tidy Feeder' textI just discovered a new local pet hay retailer: Dunlea Farms, located in Southern Ontario. They launched their pet hay line in June and their distribution has been growing ever since (you may have seen their table at Bunfest). Their website features a store locator – this morning’s search revealed five stores in Toronto proper and many more in the outlying areas (22 within a 50km range of downtown). They also list on their website the online stores that carry their products. Their pet line includes three products: alfalfa (for babies), timothy (for adults), and alfalfa-timothy mix. Their hay is packaged in nifty cardboard boxes that function as feeders and are safely edible!

    For the first aid treatment of small surface wounds, povidone iodine is often recommended as a disinfectant flush. I’ve been looking for ages, and finally found some!

    Snowdon Pharmacy
    264 Bloor St W (in the Medical Arts Bldg)
    (416) 922-2156

    You’ll most likely find povidone iodine in a 10% solution under the brand name Betadine. To administer: Dilute Betadine with lukewarm water (various sources differ on the ratio – 1:10, 1:4, or to an “iced tea” colour) and flush the wound. Avoid contact with the eyes, nose, mouth. Some sources recommend flushing secondly with saline water.

    If you think your rabbit is in shock, or if the wound is deeper than the skin – with copious bleeding, gushing – don’t waste time at home: immediately apply a non-adherent sterile pad to the wound and, with a clean towel or cloth on top, apply pressure and get thee to the vet’s.

    Povidone iodine is not necessarily recommended in wound packing/bandage soaking etc. Just as a flush.

    I just read on the Toronto Observer website about a new independent pet store – an “ethical” pet store – that opened up in East York this past winter. According to their website they sell a variety of high-quality rabbit products, including Oxbow hays and pellets, Carefresh and Yesterday’s News bedding, and toys and some basic medical supplies. Here’s the contact info:

    For the Love of Animals (416) 901-3035 . 930 Pape Ave.

    Some rabbit supply tips:

    • IKEA Rabalder cable reels are great for bunny proofing.
    • Nature’s Miracle Orange-Oxy stain remover sprays are available at PetSmart (“Just for Cats” works great for rabbits too).
    • White vinegar is available pretty much anywhere, and it works wonders for removing bunny messes from solid surfaces.
    • Wire grid cubes for bunny condos available at Home Depot and Walmart (not necessarily in the online catalogues).

    Do you have any rabbit supply tips relating to the G.T.A.? Please comment here or post a new update!
