    Rabbit is bloated!!

    My rabbit recovered from GI stasis about a month ago. But a few days ago I noticed that his stomached started to expand. Sadly he developed bloat. I have been treating him with gas drops and frequent massages. So far he still has been eating and drinking just fine, but seems a bit uncomfortable...

    Bunny died today :(

    Even if you took him to the vet last night there is a chance he still wouldn't of made it. You loved him I am sure you gave him a wonderful life. So try to rest easy knowing that. I am sorry for your loss.

    GI stasis - only eating vegetables?

    If vegetables is all shes willing to eat I would offer plenty of lettuce but make sure it is nice and wet so she can get hydrated too. I would say that one of the most important things to do is massage her stomach as much as she will tolerate this will help things get moving. Good luck with...

    My doe doesn’t take of the kits

    One tip I can give is not to hover over her or check on her too often. I can stress her out and may make her more inclined to neglect her kits. Also if she seems like she is stepping on them it mighty be her trying to get into position to feed her kits.

    Outside winter cage for Florida buns?

    I personally would stay away from using a heat lamp it could easily over heat the rabbit. Also if the power went out or malfunctioned the rabbit is now dependent on the heat. I would be careful of the rabbit eating or chewing at the cloth as well. Depending what can get into your yard if the...

    Bonding Question

    Are they spayed/neutered?
  9. Katie

    Female rabbit is actually a male

    Replying to the original question - Since they are bonded I would just put a divider in. So that he can't hump her but they can still lay next to each other and interact. If he is getting spayed in a week they should have no problem re-bonding in that amount of time. I would put him back in with...

    Failed Food Transition

    Sadly I have tried all but braided hay, to no avail.

    Is this a Fuzzy Lop?

    Just wanted to say that based on his breed his ears will probably fully drop around 6 months old. I love the picture with one ear up... so cute.

    Bunnies not chewing...

    I wouldn't worry, as long as they are eating and drinking ok then they most likely don't have any teeth problems that would keep them from chewing on things. Some rabbits just aren't much of chewers. Also since you just got them give them time to adapt to their new environment. They will get...

    Should I clean under my rabbits chin?

    I wouldn't worry about it getting infected. Since it is on his chin it might be to hard for him to get off by himself. I would try getting a paper towel or a Q-tip wet to soften the poop so it will more easily come of the fur then try coaxing it out. Also Floyd is adorable!

    Failed Food Transition

    I did get the one for poor hay eaters. That's is why I picked it, also probably why he doesn't like it.:p:) He is a picky eater for sure.

    Failed Food Transition

    The reason I chose this pellet is because he sadly won't eat hay.
