Navigating the complexities of rabbit allergies involves understanding two distinct aspects: dietary intolerance to rabbit meat and allergic reactions to keeping rabbits as pets. Whether it's the consumption of rabbit meat that triggers symptoms or exposure to pet rabbits, being informed and cautious is crucial for those affected.

What causes reactions to rabbit meat or pet rabbits?

Allergic reactions to pet rabbits are caused by proteins in the rabbit’s dander, saliva, and urine, which can become airborne. Reactions to rabbit meat are due to dietary intolerance to certain proteins found in the meat.
