    Is my rabbit fat?

    Weight isn’t a great way of determining if they are fat or not sue to such variation in size, coat thickness, full tummies, etc. If you’re worried about weight it should hopefully go down in the summer, but maybe try cutting down the fresh veg, it is less important than the hay (and pellets).

    Wild Rabbit with severe eye trauma

    No, vets are just realistic. It is not good welfare to keep a wild animal in captivity for a long time to “heal”, when they still might not survive long in the wild if not 100% healthy. Best to be seen by a vet sooner rather than later.

    Vaccines

    Well where did you get them from in the first place? And how many rabbits do you have that you need to vaccinate them so often? The vaccine dates are there for a reason - they may well still work but you won’t know for sure.

    Advice on rabbit housing during a vacation.

    It’s very dependent on your rabbits personalities how well they will cope with change. They will be better off for the fact they have each other, And usually these places will let you bring your own water bowls, hides etc, to make it as familiar for them as possible. If they have great reviews...

    Free Roam/ stairs?

    My rabbit is great at going up the stairs but too scared to go back down, so we have had to put a baby gate at the bottom to prevent her going up and getting stuck while we are out.

    Rabbit Enrichment

    I use a treat ball for my bun when she gets her pellets, keeps her busy for about 3 minutes as opposed to 30 seconds haha. The clothesline looks great, good idea! Have you tried providing a digging box? Some people use earth or sand, I just use shredded paper in a cardboard box as I don’t have...

    Bunny can't use back legs

    I would look at getting a second opinion, with a more rabbit savvy vet. Depending on your finances/insurance you could go for a CT. But if not, you’re right it may be temporary damage and the fact it improves with anti inflammatory medication is a good sign. Are you giving metacam at home too...

    My bunnys eye is irritated, need advice!

    Great news and well done for flushing the eye out so quickly, sounds like you prevented any worse damage! For future reference, I wouldn’t use eye drops without a vet checking them over first, as if they have damage to the cornea or an ulcer certain drops can be very dangerous to use.

    Is getting another rabbit a bad idea?

    Exactly my thoughts, if you can’t afford a spay you can’t afford sick bunnies, so save your money and keep it aside for your current bunny in case of emergency.

    Vet costs, WTH?

    Vet bills are dependent on so many factors; most of what you pay goes into the actual running of the practice. So, depending on the facilities, vet bills will include upkeep and maintenance of equipment, cost of drugs, electricity bills, ground rent, paying for cleaners, receptionists, VCAs, vet...

    Skin infection in rabbits

    What did the vet diagnose as the cause and what treatment have you been given? Don’t shave her.

    My bunny was paralyzed

    It is quite confusing for everyone if you make three different threads about the same topic. As mentioned on the other two, it sounds like he possibly had a seizure, he wouldn’t have had a broken back or been paralysed as he was able to move his legs. That’s all we can really say, without a post...

    My bunny was paralyzed

    As was mentioned on your other post, he was not paralysed if he could move his legs. It’s very difficult to pinpoint exactly what went wrong, but what you are describing does sound like a seizure. Once a rabbit is seizuring dramatically like that, it is often difficult to do much to help, so...

    The bare minimum age to neuter a mini breed rabbit?

    It’s completely dependant upon your vet and when they feel comfortable doing it. Best to have a conversation with them about it.

    Flooring and hay rack ideas

    If you’re worried about him chewing, you can buy an off cut of linoleum, makes a really good floor for an x-pen. As for hay rack, some rabbits don’t like to eat from a hay rack (naturally they would want to eat off the floor as they would in the wild) so most of us put the hay directly into the...

    Statis Symptoms

    With regards to the mineral oil, this is actually debated now. Although things like that and paraffin have been used in the past for blockages, evidence now shows that if there truly is a blockage the oil just slips right past it. If your bunny has trouble with hair blockages the best solution...
