    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.

      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!
