I tried to run fluid into a cup to see if bubbles disappear, but they didn't . Is it still safe to use for my pet? What happened earlier is that when I...

    How to find a rescue/sanctuary for a special need bun?

    I checked some places (rescues) online and they all say that they don't accept surrender rabbits. Mostly they say they pull out rabbits from shelters, death row and so on. They say that owners need to find another home themselves. I have a special need bunny, taking care of him becomes very...

    My sick bun

    Not long ago I lost one of my rabbits, FooFoo, there is a thread about her. Now I am down to two rabbits, a male and a female (5 and 5.5 yo) They spend their day in the yard and go inside for the night. If the weather is not good, like wet or too cold and windy, Paul (the male) may not want...

    FooFoo's behavior is concerning

    She is 5 yo unspayed female. Never been sick in her life. I can't understand if her behavior is due to being in heat or if she got sick. She eats very little, refusing her favorite snacks. For example I offer raisins that she loves, she takes a few and then just doesn't take another one. Or...

    In the middle of July I bought a large box of hay from the company that has very good reviews. Never bought from them before, I bought the second cutting. My buns ignore it, but what is more of a surprise is that I wasn't impressed at all when I first opened the box.. I was expecting at least...
