Providing rabbit food that is moist and rich in fresh vegetables, in addition to cold water, with the need to change the water and increase its quantities during daylight hours from time to time, to keep providing cold water to rabbits. It is also recommended to put ice cubes in the water. Regular grooming (hair cutting) of rabbits, as rabbits have thick fur that gives them great warmth, so you should cut as much hair as possible in the summer, in addition to getting rid of the rabbit's hair that has fallen out using a brush

provide as much cold objects as possible; Where large bottles can be filled with water and then frozen, for example, and placed in rabbit huts, so that they lean on them, and help cool their bodies
Provide ceramic floors for rabbits, if possible. Ceramic gives rabbits coolness when walking on it, instead of soil that absorbs air heat, and cooling mats for barns can also be used
Providing rabbit pens with fans or air conditioners in very hot weather, with a note to avoid directing air conditioners and fans directly on rabbits, or having electric fan wires near rabbits
Choosing the right times for rabbits to go out to play; In the early morning or evening hours
