    Reputable rescues in Sydney area

    Hey folks! I moved to Sydney a couple months ago and I'm hoping that when my fiance and I move into our own place (once I find work!) I can get a rabbit again. Although this time, they will not live in the bedroom! I'm still de-furring my things.... Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has...

    (RIP) Two Sudden Deaths

    I'm assuming you performed only a gross necropsy (meaning that no samples were taken for microscopic examination). With that assumption, the lack of plain lesions to find a diagnosis from and the history you're giving, suggests something viral to me. I'd get a good solid check up on the other...

    Switching off of loose hay

    Gotcha. I think I'll do that in lieu of the haycakes if the bunnies end up disliking them. I'd prefer the haycakes since they aren't as finely processed, but if they won't eat them that's hardly any good now, is it?

    Pellets, weight, when, why, how?

    BabyRue, when in doubt, you can think of your bunny as a small horse in regards to nutrition. Their GI tracts are nearly identical. It's not a hard and fast guideline, but it's a good way to gauge a decision. If you wouldn't feed your horse that way, it's probably not optimal to feed your...

    Pellets, weight, when, why, how?

    Hey there BabyRue, First of all, you can take a deep breath and calm down a little :) Yes, he PROBABLY should have been getting some extra calcium, but he's probably not much worse for the wear. LakeCondo's advice to give him some alfalfa for the next couple months is sound. Once he's not...

    Switching off of loose hay

    I do feed orchard hay, presently, but it still aggravates allergies. I was considering the straight timothy pellets, but my buns are already used to, and like, the Oxbow pellets, which are also balanced. I also get them at a discount from our student rep for oxbow, so they're pretty cost...

    Switching off of loose hay

    Due to allergy problems in my household that are not being controlled by usual allergy medications, I'm going to be transitioning my rabbits off of loose hay. I did consider wetting the hay so it doesn't float everywhere, but the bunnies won't eat it. I'd like some thoughts on my plan to do this...

    Constant "digging" in cage-- I NEED SLEEP! HELP!

    Nela, my male rabbit is neutered (for a while) so there's no way I'm going to be getting baby bunnies. Unless the second coming comes in the form of a zombie rabbit apocalypse :P As I said, it was something I tried and then decided didn't work. I"m not even lettig them out at the same time...

    Contradictory Info On fruits/veggies/nutrition

    I don't see anything particularly contradictory. The lists aren't identical, but that doesn't mean either of them is wrong. Just that some include some things and some don't. you can't feasibly list everything. In general, the House Rabbit Society is a pretty good source. Do you have any...

    Constant "digging" in cage-- I NEED SLEEP! HELP!

    Well, at one point I had to get up to shove the towel in a corner she decided to dig in that wasn't the corner I had "Defended". After that, nice and quiet... Then she started up again this morning, but we just let her out and she went to town on one of the boxes under my dresser. So lets...

    Constant "digging" in cage-- I NEED SLEEP! HELP!

    she's in one of the 30" cages that's really best for rabbits smaller than her. She gets to spend a good amount of time out of it, though. I just didn't have the space in here for her big cage, and this is the only size cage that fits on my animal shelf. It's still much bigger than the one her...

    Constant "digging" in cage-- I NEED SLEEP! HELP!

    That's still an option, although i'd prefer not to do that unless this doesn't work...She's rather attached to my male rabbit, and used to me and my noise and I don't think she'd be very pleased being in a room by herself all night. (yes, I've tried putting the male with her, or letting them...

    Constant "digging" in cage-- I NEED SLEEP! HELP!

    If this behavior continues despite everything I do, or reoccurs, I'll probably go ahead and spay her. As has been stated, this isn't very fun for anyone!! I'm just right before my next loan dispersal and quite literally have every penny dedicated to one bill or another until May. I'm less...

    Constant "digging" in cage-- I NEED SLEEP! HELP!

    She hasn't been doing it during the day until just recently (although she isn't right now). I think "Wearing her out" might be a good idea. I spoke with one of my classmates who also has rabbits, and we're thinking she's pseudopregnant so hopefully this will blow over and I'll be more...

    Constant "digging" in cage-- I NEED SLEEP! HELP!

    I suppose it's possible. Like I said, she isn't incredibly well litter trained. Her cage would still have to be available to her, and she'll dig in it even if she's allowed to run around the room all night. But maybe I could get some carpet samples and use it on the bottom of her cage. It'd be...
