Healthy rabbits can swim, if necessary.

Wild rabbits may choose to swim across a river, for instance, to reach the other side, but they aren't widely known to enjoy swimming for leisure or play.

While some pet rabbits have been known to enjoy swimming, most find the experience stressful. Stress can greatly compromise a rabbit's health; the rabbit may also panic and drown. Never place your rabbit in water deeper than its legs if it isn't able to immediately get out on its own.

Swimming is risky for other reasons, too:

  • Chlorine, soaps, and other things in the water can cause skin problems
  • If water gets in the rabbit's ears, infection can result
  • If a wet rabbit is exposed to cold weather or winds, it can develop hypothermia
