    Weight Loss

    I've only had her a few months.. About two months or less when I noticed the weight loss so maybe 3 now.. The people that gave her to me never seemed to feed her any hay, as there was none in her cage, and I was not handed it. They had her on some gross seed, pellet, coloured-thing party...

    Weight Loss

    Bunson is not improving. She seemed to he gaining a bit of weight while on the meds and critical care, but is back to losing it at an alarming rate again now that they've stopped. I haven't been able to pay towards previous vet bills because of course it seems everything must happen at once...

    Weight Loss

    The vet check yielded no known cause. In fact, the vet seemed uninterested in the 'why'. There were mild dental spikes, but nothing he deemed to cause pain. He pushed me to purchase Oxbow brand hay and pellets, and prescribed 3 meds and some critical care after Bunson (who is female, after all)...

    Weight Loss

    Update on Bunson: He hasn't seemed to touch his hay today at all, but his pellets were gone. I'm planning a vet appointment to a Petsmart Banfield in the morning, where there is a rabbit-savvy vet. I appreciate everyone's concerns and input, and will attempt to keep this thread updated on his...

    Weight Loss

    How would he have obtained worms? He's an indoor rabbit. :( I have another indoor bun. They don't have contact with each other, but they are caged in the same room. She shows no signs of weight loss. It wouldn't be something she could catch, is it?

    Weight Loss

    I adopted what I'm pretty sure is a buck (he won't safely allow me to check!) mini lop. I do not know his age, though he appears to be an adult, but not a senior. He came to us in perfect health, but did not come with hay, leading me to believe he had probably never been fed anything but...

    Thinking of changing pellets..

    It was great to hear your opinions. :) I'm afraid working at a pet store that sells mainly the more holistic brands of everything and my vet have me a little brainwashed. Also, I work with rescues rabbits. My newest acquisition is a mildly obese rabbit and my vet gave me "the look" when I said...

    Thinking of changing pellets..

    So my rabbits have always been on Purina rabbit chow Complete. Because it comes bulk and is cheap. It is also a plain pellet, not mixed with seeds, sugar bisquits, or other filler nonsense. To be dead honest, I've fed this pellet for years and are ashamaed to admit I never bothered to look at...

    Young Pet Store Bun

    No pet store here /doesn't/ deal with live. I try not to put too much heart into anything that comes through but to be honest idk if we even have a store vet... I've never heard of one if we do. If the bun's sick or unwell, we simply RTV (Return to Vendor) the animal, since we know the vendor...

    Young Pet Store Bun

    The pellets have no brand name I can find. They're given to us for store use. I highly doubt it, but they look like the FortiDiet Crunch. I remove all the lil orange crunchy pieces. He's drinking decently. I'm constantly giving him new hay to make sure he eats it since some buns don't like...

    Young Pet Store Bun

    Hey! To those of you who remember me, I'm sorry it's been so long since I last posted here! But now I work at a pet store and I need some help. We have a male dwarf hotot mix in the store. He's a few months old. Hard to say exactly how old, but he's not super-young since his testicles have...

    Gladiolus

    I tried to find a list of rabbit-safe flowers for a fundraiser going on through my mother's church- they're selling bulbs for spring! They have a limited amount of stuff to choose from, though. And the few I came up with on the list were gladiolus and day lily. Those were about the only two in...

    Nymh's Nomming issues

    My parents have the Care Credit Card, which is how I paid for Jasper, my Flemmie mix's, vet bill. But I've been reminded by my parents on a constant basis that this is for emergencies only. My parents do NOT see rabbits as a 'vet pet'. I'm worried they will not understand that the chewing...

    Bugs has teary eyes

    Thank you for the input. :) I'll be sure to let her know what the conclusion is in the morning.

    Bugs has teary eyes

    Bugs has never had that sort of thing happen to her before. I'm quite sure I'd be bitten, as I've no experience doing it myself, either. It may just end up being an uncomfortable, tense situation for both of us. x.x

    Bugs has teary eyes

    I'm able to look at her front teeth, which look fine to me. From what I've seen when I watch her eat, she doesn't appear to have any problems, though I will certainly bring up getting her teeth checked to her. Back teeth are insanely hard to look at without a vet's tools. Or I would try to look...

    Bugs has teary eyes

    A friend of mine has a dwarf hotot mix doe named Bugs. She's about 6 years old and she's been having a bit of a problem lately. Her eyes have been teary. The area around her eyes looks so messy, even with her mom's constant cleaning, that the 'eyeliner' is starting to dissipate. She gets white...

    Nymh's Nomming issues

    Nymh is my 2 year old Jersey Woolly buck. He seems to be having some issues chewing. I've tranced him to look at his front teeth. They look okay to me. But his back teeth are a mystery to me. I've observed behaviors with his chewing such as: *Head tilting up (like a howling coyote) while...
