    Rabbit with broken leg. In a big dilemma.

    My rabbit broke his leg by being stepped on by a horse. It was just hanging there, like not connected, in the skin. He was a stray that I could never get a hold of and stayed in my barn. There was no way I could afford a vet so after some investigating online, I read about a bunny owner who kept...

    Well that was unexpected

    I paid $150. here in NY and I thought that was a lot.

    Bunny cage - Room for improvement?

    My bunny's litter box is in his cage but I never close him up in it. I have the door fastened to stay open. He is not as active at night as he used to be, but he is 7 years old now. He actually has 5 different places to sleep in this small studio apartment. I know he would make all kinds of...

    Different sized rabbit poops?

    My bunny, "Rabbit" had very tiny dried up poop for the longest time. But he also had sticky globs of cecotropes. I changed his diet due to that condition. By doing that his poop has become normal now. I was feeding him oats as he would not eat pellets at all. I should not have fed him oats and I...

    When is your bunnies' "year with us" anniversary?

    Rabbit was in my horse barn on September 9, 2014 and was wounded by an owl who must have dropped him near my house. I could not get a hold of him to doctor him and he stayed in the barn until he got stepped on by my horse. Then I got him inside and he healed. That was in February 2015 so he was...

    Intermittent Soft Cecotropes

    Thank you for the links. Even though he is back to normal now (or what I think normal is) I like to read everything I can about it. I now smile every day when I clean his litter and see that normal poop.

    Intermittent Soft Cecotropes

    I had never read anything anywhere about ISC (Intermittent Soft Cecotropes) until someone on this forum (sorry, I can't find the thread today) posted a link to an article about it. I could not believe sounded like exactly what was wrong with my bunny! Well, I printed it out and...

    What breed is your rabbit(s)?

    I put hearts on all of your pictures because I never see a rabbit I don't love. Here is a picture of "Rabbit" who is a Californian and is now 6 years old. I took this picture this morning when he was helping me clean our apartment.

    Have any of you noticed people act weird towards you because of the COVID-19

    I haven't been out of my apartment in four days because I caught a cold from my boyfriend. We are in the age group where we are supposed to be real careful. I am usually healthy so I am not too worried about it. Tomorrow I have a doctor's appointment and will see what my doctor says. Though my...

    I am old compared to most of you! 67! But I don't normally think of myself in those terms. I live with my bunny boy, "Rabbit" and have had him as a house rabbit for 5 years, though he showed up at my old house house almost 6 years ago. I think being friends with people of all ages is really...

    Rabbit spay? Told by vet she cannot eat before they surgery??

    When I had "Rabbit" (that's his name) neutered the vet's receptionist told me not to feed him anything from midnight on. I had researched getting him neutered due to not having a rabbit specialist vet in my area and I knew that was not right. I took a chance and let him eat his hay. Talking to...

    Broken leg...options?

    No, because it was just hanging there, like part of it was not connected to the rest. He was stepped on a by a big horse. Those first days, I kept him in a big box with hay in it and he stayed pretty still. When the cage arrived, he just kind of laid in the corner looking out the glass doors...

    Broken leg...options?

    Oh I am so sorry you went through that. One reason I never told anyone before that I did this with Rabbit is due to how horrible people react when you don't take your pet to the vet. I have found throughout the years though, that is not always the best option for your pet. I doctored many cats...

    Broken leg...options?

    I did remove him from the box to clean it and then because I bought an a-frame cage for him and it came in a few days. He laid in the cage but never appeared to be in pain. He limped but his leg was not dragging like I thought it should be. I think he was more scared than anything else because...

    Broken leg...options?

    My bunny broke his leg back in 2015. He had just appeared in my barn one day a few months before that. He had been picked up by an owl, I think. He had a wound on his side but would not let me get near him to doctor him. It healed on its own and he was in the barn with my horses. One day I went...

    Male with dewlap?

    My bunny is a Californian neutered male and he has a large dewlap. He is pretty healthy and I have no problems with him or his dewlap. So I am not worried about it.

    Rabbit Enrichment

    "Rabbit" has never been much into playing with toys. But he really enjoys the various tunnels I have made with my furniture and one from a cardboard box. I live in a studio apartment so I arranged the furniture so he has little hallways between or behind it. That way he has private hallways that...

    How much verbal understanding do rabbits have?

    My bunny, "Rabbit" spends all day with me in a small studio apartment so I talk a lot to him. He loves to listen to music and recently I got a flat screen so when I watch videos he lays down nearby. He knows his name for sure and if I come in and say, "Look what I got for you." He comes running...
