    My rabbit died today suddenly.

    I just lost my rabbit to what they thought was cancer, and now my second rabbit also has high WBC count and will be starting antibiotics tomorrow. Neither one has been exposed to other rabbits but did recently add another grain to their diet for the first time in years. I was wondering if a...

    I feel like I'm neglecting my rabbit..

    I had another thought, do you have a 4H club around? Could be fun joining one with your bunny. Also if the pen idea doesn't work out, you could always try a bunny halter and leash.

    I feel like I'm neglecting my rabbit..

    If your pen is big enough, rabbits love to dig in boxes filled with crumpled paper, its kind of like a hamster wheel for rabbits. It gives them exercise and can relieve stress. Our female still uses boxes and will dig for hours hiding under the pile of balled up paper. Also they love...

    I feel like I'm neglecting my rabbit..

    It's never too late to have her bond with you, and it would be a fun rewarding challenge for you. I just lost one of my rabbits, but both even at the age of 9 never liked to be picked up. Just work on offering treats and try to rub behind her ears, they tend to love it over time. Is there a...

    My rabbit is in mourning what can I do to help her?

    Thank you, she is definitely coming around, she explored the house yesterday and even took her favorite treats from us, she has stopped her chattering too. It has been a difficult few months, we lost our cat in November to cancer, she was 16. We lost our labradoodle in December to cancer...

    Anyone own chickens?

    We have 4 Buff Orpingtons and two Easter Eggers, and will hatch out a few more more this spring. They are sweet hearts!

    My rabbit is in mourning what can I do to help her?

    How do you help a bonded rabbit deal with the loss of a long time partner? We lost our 9 year old male rabbit to cancer this morning. His mate who is also about 9 years old is a wreck, they have not been apart in over 7 years. She won't stop chattering and doesn't want us comforting her...

    Hay Feeder Alternative

    My bunnies loved the ball you can fill that spins on a wheel, but they have it destroyed in a week. What ever you use, just make sure your bunny can't get a foot trapped since they panic easily in that situation and you can end up with a broken leg. I use half inch square wife fencing over my...

    Rabbit losing all of his fur at once!

    Oh no, I am checking out the links you attached and so far they are describing my rabbit. We just lost two pets to cancer. It's so unsettling. Both had large masses in their necks. I buy everything organic or at least all natural. It's so heartbreaking. At least I have something I can...

    My Mom Wants Me to breed my rabbit

    You could argue that her friends male rabbit could injury yours. They have fairly fragile skin, it wouldn't take but a bite to cause a nasty infection. The vet bill would not be worth the money you would get for the babies. I had to spay our female, as soon as she came into heat she...

    Rabbit losing all of his fur at once!

    I forgot to mention that we had our heat unusually high for a couple weeks while my elderly mother was here for the holiday. We normally keep our house cool which the rabbits love. They definately were not enjoying the higher temperatures between the baseboard heat and wood stove.. Could...

    I think my rabbits in GI Statis

    If you do think its GI stasis can you help her by gently massaging her belly toward her bottom end? Sometimes you can actually feel the droppings inside trapped from the gas. If you can get her to hop around it can sometimes help pass the gas. Yes the Simethicone is super helpful and works...

    Rabbit losing all of his fur at once!

    Hi, I'm new to this forum. I hope someone might have advice to offer on skin conditions. My male rabbit (guessing he is about 9 yrs). started to lose clumps of fur two weeks ago, his third eyelids also started to show. The vet checked for mites and fungus, both negative. She found by...
