Mini lop rabbits live about 9 to 10 years with proper care. Some health problems may occur that shorten the lifespan or compromise the animal's health.
Most health problems associated with mini lops result from a diet lacking proper nutrients. Pet owners can supplement a diet of commercial rabbit pellets with fresh vegetables, such as spinach, cauliflower, carrots, corn or parsley. A daily serving of hay is also nutritious for the animals. Common health problems in mini lop rabbits include parasites, respiratory illness and Calicivirus. Regular veterinary checkups and vaccinations can help keep mini lops healthy and give them a longer lifespan.
