πŸ₯₯ Cold-pressed, unrefined coconut oil reduces inflammation, keeping skin moisturized and helping heal wounds. The medium-chain fatty acids found in coconut oil also possess antimicrobial properties

🌹 NEW! Rose Hip Seed Oil is an antibacterial and has a high ratio of linoleic, alpha-linolenic, and oleic acid, as well as tocopherol and carotenoids. This combination makes it useful as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant to neutralize oxidative stress and promote healing.

🍯 The addition of Manuka honey is what really sets this salve apart from others. Manuka honey is a well-known natural treatment for skin ailments.

🐢🐱🐰 Not limited to rabbits, guinea pigs, and other small pets! This salve is wonderful for cats and dogs as well!

⏳ This salve has been a long time in the making! Before releasing it, we sent out a batch to a test group of 8 rabbit families. Below are some of the awesome reviews we received back:

πŸ“Œ From a House Rabbit Society Educator with two chronic sore hock buns: "The sore hock cream works like a dream. The majority of my 16 bunnies are all seniors and have some form of hock issues. Although they are all housed on fleece, they still manage to show some sores on their hocks. The cream has been a real lifesaver. I highly recommend it and will be ordering again soon."

πŸ“Œ From someone with a Holland Lop: "Sore Hock Salve seems to be working very well. Little Mister Thor seems to be a lot more bouncy after using it and loves to chatter after I put it on!"

πŸ“Œ From someone with a Lionhead and Holland Lop: "It took a little longer than expected to start seeing results on my bunnies feet (about 2 weeks). The salve smells nice and the bunnies don't have a desire to lick it off their feet. Overall, this product definitely works and has helped my bunnies' feet tremendously (they even have hair regrowth where it was once bald). I highly recommend this product." Check out their before and after photos!

❗️ NOTE: It's important to remember that there is NO MAGICAL SALVE that exists that can cure sore hocks or other skin ailments. Healing salves are meant to help soothe and speed along the healing process and are considered CURATIVE CARE (helping to cure an ailment) vs. PREVENTATIVE CARE (aiming to prevent an ailment from happening). Preventative care for sore hocks is extremely important, for example making sure you have proper flooring (soft and cushiony) where your rabbit or other small animal lives.

Frequently Asked Questions

Suitable For Disclaimer

Please keep in mind that the dosages we provide are specific to rabbits. We recommend that you consult with a vet for specific dosages for other species.

Age Minimum for Products

Per our mentor's advice, we recommend that your pet be 2 months or older to enjoy our treat products. Always introduce new foods slowly and mindfully to ensure they do not negatively affect your pet. Your pet can enjoy our toys at any age under supervision.

Chew Toys Disclaimer

Small pets should only have chew toys under supervised play and toys should be removed if your pet begins to primarily consume rather than chew the toy. Excessive consumption of fibrous objects can lead to serious GI blockages. Fibrous products include: loofahs, water hyacinth, edible twine, apple/pear/willow twigs, vine twirls.

Packaging for Duplicate Items

PRODUCT PACKAGING: As an eco-friendly business, we try as much as we possibly can to cut down on waste. Therefore, whenever IDENTICAL treats/herbs are ordered (i.e. two bags of Happy Belly Biscuits or five 3oz bags of Blanco's Blend), we always bag them together to reduce waste. We will always respect your wishes if you prefer that they be bagged separately (for example, if you are buying one for yourself and one as a gift) - just message us or write a note on your order and we are happy to do so!


We use 100% compostable, resealable zipper pouches, heat seal bags, and recyclable zipper pouches. Our compostable bags/pouches are entirely industrial or home compostable certified. They have superior strength, are freezer-safe, and have an excellent oxygen and moisture barrier!

All product boxes, tissue/parchment paper, & labels are recycled.

Our packaging materials are all recyclable and/or reused from our vendors.

Legal Disclaimer

The Well Kept Rabbit is not responsible for accidents, illnesses or injuries that occur from use of our products.

Expiration / Best By Dates

We recommend that you use all of our handmade treats within 2 months for optimal freshness.

Shipping Overages

Shipping is calculated by weight, box dimensions, and destination. Etsy's algorithm is sometimes spot on, yet sometimes it's way off. We find this to be the case with heavier/larger items like our cleaner and maze havens.

It is our policy to ALWAYS refund shipping overages when they exceed $5 or more.
