    How long coccidia spores stay contagious?

    I remember most members too. Thank you guys. What I am recalling from reading in the past, when we were suspecting coccidia, it wasn't that easy, and I remember that spores can live long time (but how long I don't know). However, this time, my concern is about wild rabbit that is visiting. When...

    How long coccidia spores stay contagious?

    I used to have pet bunnies, who had access to my backyard, who passed away almost 2 years ago (it's a long story, some may remember me but its been awhile) We suspected coccidia as a cause of their illness. Right now, I see a wild bunny visiting my backyard. Would this bunny be in danger of...

    Loose rabbit in the park

    its not that I was waiting to catch him, I was getting his trust and getting him to know that he should associate me with good things (eating yummy veggies). The rescue girl told me that they also got another loose bunny several months ago that was surviving in a very bunny unfriendly place...

    Loose rabbit in the park

    Today I got him! a lady from a bunny rescue brought a live trap but I actually got him into my same box while she was gone to her car to bring the trap. Today he was not in an open field like all previous days, he was sitting in bushes and didn't look as active as previous days. I thought he may...

    How stressful are rabbits really?

    does it never get too hot where you live? I used to house my rabbits in garage overnight (outdoors during the day) but in summer, without air conditioning, the garage was impossible to use for them! I m in Kansas US and summers are hot

    Loose rabbit in the park

    today he/she was really close to entering the cardboard box with veggies when angry lady rode her bike between me and the bunny saying "You have no business of doing it, I am going to call the police". Not sure what made her so mad, she probably thought I was feeding and trying to catch a wild...

    Loose rabbit in the park

    Thank you all. Yesterday i went to the park and he /she was there again. Ate a piece of carrot, cilantro and romaine (i dont feed much of that stuff, who knows how used he is to greens). I decided not to use my pet carrier (too much trouble cleaning). I had a new cardboard box where i cut the...

    Loose rabbit in the park

    Since my rabbits passed, we cleaned the house of course but didn't really disinfect it (since there were no other rabbits left). Are my carpets still contaminated? Paul passed at the end of July. I am not sure where to keep this rabbit if I catch him.

    Loose rabbit in the park

    thank you everyone. What kind of treatment are you talking about JBun? ticks? I don't know if he has any fleas, etc. I think I saw some ticks on him but I am not sure. usually they are just removed, right? Did you mean Revolution treatment ? Where do I get ammonia? also, I have pet birds, would...

    Loose rabbit in the park

    Thats what my concern is too, that he may be enjoying his freedom more than being locked up. However, he cant manage ticks or fleas, the temperature is going to rise, too. Sure, wild rabbits survive our hot summer but they dig underground. I do have a carrier but i have a concern. My last bunny...

    Loose rabbit in the park

    2 days ago i saw this bunny in the huge park by the sidewalk. I had no doubt it was a domesticated, probably dumped rabbit. I decided to see if i can get his trust and catch him. Yesterday i brought romane lettuce and banana, i had it in my hand and he immediately started to come towards me. He...

    Our sweet Bella passed away!

    oh No! I am so very sorry for your loss! Sending hugs to you and your children! I hope that Bella is finding not just meadows of yummy stuff to eat, but also lots of bunny friends to play with. You know. Binky free, sweetest Bella girl. So very sorry that you are gone prematurely.
