    Bright Orange Crust by eye

    Hi - yes the bunnies are totally back to normal now - it only took a couple of week for the rest of the harvest flies to bug off and disappear! I felt so bad for my babies but they are fine now. It is a possibility that in late summer next year the buns could get reinfested at harvest time but...

    Bright Orange Crust by eye

    The vet phoned me yesterday after speaking with a collegue and suggested I bring the buns back and we vaccinate them with ivomectin - which I understand may prevent further re-infestations which are likely to happen as our garden borders loads of long grass near a school. Hopefully this may do...

    Bright Orange Crust by eye

    Ok, went to the vets yesterday - she said it's a parasite on the eye corners called Harvest Mite! She had never seen it on rabbits before - only dogs, sheep etc!!! Bit of a worry as she didn't have anything to treat it with as the only licensed treatment was for larger animals. She has give me...

    Bonding Process - Please help

    Fingers crossed here but I'm hoping the buns are now bonded! They have been together for over 24 hrs and are sitting together harmoniously and grooming each other - yeah - I am so pleased!!!There is still a tiny bit of humping going on but it's not often and it's usually diffused before it even...

    Bonding Process - Please help

    Well.....(in hushed tones)....we're in the neutral territory room, and things seem to be going ok..... We went for our car ride at 6.30 which I'm not sure was successful or not - there was no fighting en-route but Benjamin did clamber on top of Roxy's head as he was frightened. As soon as I got...

    Hi, yes that's right. Twinkle got very ill so we had to make the hard decision to put her to sleep back in early May and we're now trying to bond him to a new friend.
