    We can’t give the virus that cause cold/flu for us to bunnies. But bunnies can get snuffles/cold but it’s caused by something else. So you have nothing to worry about :)

    Your bunny will be healthy and safe while you are sick ^^

    Cold and flu can't be passed to rabbits. Cold sores are one thing that can be passed from humans to rabbits, and it can actually be very dangerous to them if they contract the herpes simplex virus.
