    Dutchess not eating

    Hi! I agonized about whether to separate them. She always snuggles back behind him in the two layer cage so i couldnt see if she was eating or pooping. I put her on the toprow and closed it off, so they could see each other and hear each other. But then i could see whether she was eating and how...

    Dutchess not eating

    Have been giving Dutchess .3 cc of baby simethicone liquid twice daily and 3 cc of critical care for herbivores every 3 or 4 hrs, 3 or 4 cc per feeding. It is slow but most of it goes in her and not on her fur. Hopefully the vet will trim her teeth tomorrow. She is more energetic, picks up hay...

    Dutchess not eating

    Dutchess, our beloved lionhead, refused her treats today. Usually she grabs them. About six months ago, vet noticed a small molar spur but said he would recheck it in six months. Now, they only do drop offs due to covid 19. Canypt tell about her poop because she lives with another bunny, Arnold...

    Overgrown Incisors/Molar Spurs?

    Have had guinea pigs with molar spurs and misaligned teeth, and they drooled. There is a product, critical care for herbivores, that can be mixed with water and given by eyedropper. But best would be to get Theo to a vet who can check his teeth. Best wishes. Hope Theo is all better soon.

    Anyone else's bunny do this? *face palm*

    Our bunnies have cheap timothy hay in their litter box and expensive oxbow hay elsewhere. They would use the hay wherever it was as their litterbox so we put the cheaper hay there. Now they eat the good hay and use their litterbox properly.

    How do I bond my rabbit?

    We have successfully bonded our two bunnies. We put them in an indoor hutch, one on the top floor and one on the bottom. We gave them soft toys scented with the other bunnies smell. Then we put them in wire cages outside briefly each day next to one another so they could smell each other and...

    Bonding bunnies!

    Now that Dutchess and Arnold has bonded, Arnold is starting to nip us when we try to take Dutchess out of their outdoor playpen, like he is protecting her. Has anyone encountered this and have suggestions for discouraging it? We are thinking about water mist or gloves or hot sauce or bitter...

    Bonding bunnies!

    Dutchess and Arnold have bonded! They love sitting together and grooming each other. No aggression. We opted for very slow gradual bonding.
