    Bonding Young Rabbits?

    Thanks all. I will start talking to my vet about having Blinky neutered sooner rather than later. I also realize that there is some chance that they could reject each other but I'm honestly not anticipating that. I know some rabbits are more aggressive than others. For example my first rabbit...

    Bonding Young Rabbits?

    Hi all! My rabbit Blinky just turned 15 weeks old today. He's a very sweet boy and I love him dearly. I plan on having him neutered around 6 months or whenever my vet feels comfortable performing the procedure. I recently was talking to a rabbit breeder that I am friends with and she...

    Concerned about my rabbits eye

    I am also dealing with a rabbit with inflamed and infected eyes right now. Do you see any sort of mucus discharge from the eyes? If the eyelids are red and inflamed o would take him to the vet. My rabbit had small ulcers in both eyes, even though one eye looked totally normal. He also had an...

    How much should a baby bunny be eating?

    I can find local hay around here, yes! Sometimes it is surprisingly difficult to get ahold of. I got a big bale of alfalfa from a feed store but sometimes they'll be out of stock and local farmers around here usually aren't willing to sell one bale at a time. So purchases are usually limited to...

    How much should a baby bunny be eating?

    Thanks guys! He started eating the alfalfa pellets, it just took a few days :) I also got some new alfalfa hay, this time a local bale hat is much softer and more leafy. The bag of oxbow alfalfa I bought was super thick and hard and broken into small pieces. I think he likes the new alfalfa...

    What's your guess? :-)

    Thank you! :) His name is Blinky and he is a cross between a mini lop and a harlequin rabbit

    How much should a baby bunny be eating?

    Thank you! I think he's starting to eat a bit more of the alfalfa pellets! :) I decided to give him two bowls of food, one with the Timothy pellets and one with the alfalfa pellets. He's definitely eating more pellets now and I think he is picking at the alfalfa ones a bit.

    How much should a baby bunny be eating?

    Thank you! Yeah he might be awake more at night, I tend to go to bed fairly early so it's possible I'm missing most of his activity. How concerned do I need to be about him not eating alfalfa at this age? At the vets office he was considered to be slightly underweight, but he also came from a...

    How much should a baby bunny be eating?

    Do you think he maybe doesn't like the taste of the alfalfa based pellets? And because they're mixed in with the timothy based one he's just avoiding eating anything from the bowl? I feel like when I first got him a week ago he was pretty excited about pellets, and since then his excitement has...

    How much should a baby bunny be eating?

    He seems to be pooping a normal amount, they look large and full of roughage as they should. Occasionally he'll pass a few very small pellets. He has a bottle and drinks regularity, he has a 32 oz bottle and goes through maybe 8-10 oz per day. I have noticed a couple times his urine looked a...

    How much should a baby bunny be eating?

    Blinky is about 10 weeks old and weighs about 2.5lbs. When he first came to me he wasn't feeling very well but he's healing up now. When I first got him all I had was timothy hay and the oxbow naturals pellets (breeders didn't send any of his old food or hay with), but I'm now slowly...

    What's your guess? :-)

    Hi everyone! Me and my new bunny are doing really well and I've totally fallen in love with him. When I got him he had an eye infection that I am now treating. It's clearing up beautifully and looks 1000% better now! Since I've taken him in I've been wondering what type of bun he is. Today I...

    Need advise/help!!!

    I cleaned his eye a bit today with a cotton ball soaked in some saline. I just held it there for a minute and then used a q-tip that was damp with saline to gently wipe away any mucus from the eye. I took this picture where you can see how cloudy the eye is. I've got a vet appointment scheduled...

    Need advise/help!!!

    Thank you :) that's his good eye in the above photo. But I agree his bad eye doesn't seem as bad as they originally made it sound, but there's definitely something wrong with it. I called this morning and the exotics vet is not working at the emergency clinic today, so I will be calling my...

    Need advise/help!!!

    Just an update, I have him now at home. His eye is open, but I do believe it is infected. It looks just the same as my dog's eye looked when he had conjunctivitis. It's just a little gunky and crusty in the fur which keeps him from opening the eye completely. Otherwise he does seem healthy which...

    Need advise/help!!!

    Okay, do you think there any way for me to get an idea if whether the eye is infected or not? Or should I just assume that it is an infection? I plan on bringing him into the vet no matter what, but it will be a difference in whether I schedule an appointment 1-2 weeks out or if I bring him into...

    Need advise/help!!!

    Thank you both. I'm getting him tonight, in about 4 hours. I'm actually unsure if his eye is still closed, or if it is now open but took too long to open and is now damaged. In my last communication it sounded like both eyes might be open but one eye is damaged. I'll just have to wait and see I...

    Need advise/help!!!

    Thank you both for your replies! I heard back from the people giving him away and I'm going to pick him up today. They said they think it's a male but they're not sure. Once I get a better look at him I'll try to give some more information here. Thanks again! :)

    Need advise/help!!!

    I recently stumbled across an add for someone giving away an 8 week bunny for meat because one of its eyes never opened and the rabbit is assumed to be blind. I am thinking about attempting to take this bunny in, and I know that it may end sadly, but I feel like I should at least try. Does...

    My new boy Sparky!

    Yes, my rabbit was bought from a breeder who produces show rabbits and rabbits for others to use in their own breeding programs. My particular rabbit is a pet but when they are born she tattoos the left ear of all of her bunnies. In order to show a rabbit they must have a left ear tattoo (this...
