    How to help a sad rabbit?

    I have a 10 year old Male rabbit. His roommate, who was also 10 year old Male, passed away last month. He is now having a hard time adjusting. I have taken him for a checkup and he is quite healthy for a guy his age. But he seems so sad. He just sits in the corner, mopes around. He looks...

    "Healthy" rabbit avoiding blind rabbit

    Thank you everyone for the replies. The blind rabbit does occasionally have nystagmus. I assume it happens a lot more often than I see it, but it seems about 50% of the time I poke my head in their room, his eyes are darting back and forth. He is only a couple weeks into his medication so I'm...

    "Healthy" rabbit avoiding blind rabbit

    No, I usually take them separately to the vet since it's a long trip. The blind rabbit was diagnosed with e.coniculi. This is not a new disease for me to deal with. I have lost another rabbit from e.coniculi about 2.5 years ago - that rabbit was bonded to "healthy rabbit" for 6 years. "Healthy"...

    "Healthy" rabbit avoiding blind rabbit

    Hello I have 2 senior rabbits. They have been bonded for about 2 years. One has gone blind in the last couple months. I have taken him to the vet, got medicine etc. My issue is with my other rabbit. They used to get along fine, but now it seems the "healthy" rabbit is avoiding the blind one...

    How big is too big for a sipper bottle?

    I have a large American White rabbit (mixed with a bit of Flemish, he's about 13 pounds). Is he too big for a sipper bottle? I have tried everything for water dishes, but he always manages to flip them and flood his cage every day. I've even tried these...

    When can I leave them alone together, unsupervised?

    Thanks for the replies. Just an update: I am going to let them out together unsupervised, but I won't put them in a cage. I'll let them roam free in the bedroom while I'm at work. When I come home from work, they can still roam free in the bedroom. Then at night, I'll put them in their...

    When can I leave them alone together, unsupervised?

    I've had 2 male rabbits for about 4/5 years. One is neutered, the other is not (my vet said there are more complications with neutering at my rabbit's age, it's not worth the risk for the few benefits). They are both about 6/7 years old. My question is: when can I leave them alone together...

    Any experience with jaundice/liver disease?

    She died today. I figured I should post how it progressed, in case anyone searches this thread for help later: After about 6 hours, she stopped eating completely. I tried to force feed her Critical Care but she refused to swallow. She was very lethargic and barely moved, but she refused to...

    Any experience with jaundice/liver disease?

    My rabbit was diagnosed today with some kind of liver problems, we're not sure exactly what it is. My vet is amazing and very helpful, he gave me lots of information. She isn't eating on her own, I have to force feed her Critical Care and give her antibiotics. She lost 25% of her body weight...

    what would make pee red

    There are two things that I know it could be (there might be many more possibilities): - bladder sludge: the calcium in the urine gets thick and sludgey and it could turn red - it could be from certain fruits/veggies, which is completely normal. Sometimes rabbit urine just comes out as a...

    Rabbit won't leave heater

    This may seem like an odd question, hopefully someone can help. My rabbit is constantly hanging out by the heater in my bedroom. The temperature in my house is perfectly fine, all my other pets are comfortable. I felt her ears and they feel nice and warm. But every time I try to move her from...

    Hair loss and dry skin on back of ears

    It's all over the back of the ears, and it's a little bit on the tips of the front of the ears as well.

    Hair loss and dry skin on back of ears

    I noticed my rabbit has really dry skin on the back of her ears and she's missing some fur there as well. She has had problems with fur mites before (she has a weak immune system and has trouble fighting them off), but they have since disappeared. I checked her whole body and there doesn't...

    What to do when rabbits lose an owner?

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I re-read my original post and it sounds more morbid than it should. My fiance didn't die - we have just parted ways (to put it nicely). I guess part of the reason I feel so bad for the rabbits is because he abandoned them with me. He left and said he...

    What to do when rabbits lose an owner?

    Without getting into the details of my situation, my rabbits will no longer be able to see my fiance. Half of the rabbits in my home originally lived with him before we moved in together (they were essentially "his" rabbits), and I know they love him very much. He has been away at training...
