    Teaching a rabbit to jump over obstacles?

    Thanks @SableSteel , I’ll have to keep looking into it and if it doesn’t work out, a kitten h one would be fine (unless it’s not fine to use for a rabbit). @Niomi once she gets the hang of it, I’ll probably try doing it without a harness but as you said, at first she’ll need one. I’m probably...

    Teaching a rabbit to jump over obstacles?

    I will look se cat harnesses up. Thanks for letting me know @Blue eyes and good thing I didn’t use it yet. @Niomi yeah we have a gymnastics mat so I figured that will be fine to set down underneath the jumps. I might try target training but the thing is I read that they should jump because they...

    Teaching a rabbit to jump over obstacles?

    @Blue eyes thanks, I was reading the thread and it said I needed an h harness? Where can I find those in xl sizes because Belle is now over 10 lbs? This is the one we have, just in blue: If you open it, it kind of looks like an h but I’m not sure if it’s an h harness.. It’s the only one we...

    Teaching a rabbit to jump over obstacles?

    Hey all. I’m still missing Auggie so much and Belles getting crazier by the day. So we are going to teach her to jump like horses do! Just for fun but we think she’ll absolutely love it seeing how she loves to run around all crazy and jump over baby gates (2 feet tall ones). And it’ll let out...

    New bunny won’t come out. RIP

    I’m not really sure how to say this but.. Auggie passed away last night. I feel awful but I know we did everything we could’ve to help him. We fed him critical care and syringe fed him water multiple times each day. We gave him his medicine for 5 days. We were gone all day apple picking so I...

    Orchard Grass Hay -- do most bunnies like it?

    Belle loves orchard grass hay, we always have fed her Timothy but I read it’s good to have a variety. So I bought some of that and am feeding a combination of Timothy and orchard grass hay to both Snowball and Belle (Auggies sick and young so no introducing new food for now). If you do get a new...

    Why a rabbit is NOT a good child’s pet !

    I agree! We got our first bunny as a family pet when I was like 3. My parents, of course, took care of her and thinking back, she didn’t live very long, maybe 4, 5 years. She lived in our garage in a hutch (even when it was freezing) and we rarely let her out. I was younger then and now I would...

    New bunny won’t come out. RIP

    Also thought of something. Won’t he hate coming out and probably me now?Because obviously he won’t come out on his own since he’s sick so we have to grab him out of our own. When he’s not sick anymore, will I just have to be really patient? Also, the vet said I should handle him more. Should I...

    New bunny won’t come out. RIP

    After he came out for a long time yesterday morning, he didn’t come out again. He wasn’t eating or drinking much and hardly moved but he did pee at least once so we waited until today to see how he was. Cleaned his cage and measured exactly how much food and water. He didn’t eat, drink or move...

    Stop him from digging?

    Well you can’t make a rabbit stop digging, it’s natural to them. Give him some new stuff to dig at like a hay mat or cardboard or anything you don’t mind him digging.

    Rabbit peeing and seeming in pain!

    Is he peeing more than usual or just a normal amount in a different spot? Did you feed him anything different? Is he eating and drinking fine? Is he neutered? I’d take him to the vet if you’re not sure.

    How long it takes to neuter a rabbit?

    From what I’ve heard, it takes a while for them to get back to normal. My rabbit Belle got spayed and we took her out of her cage the next day to change the towels (per the vets recommendation for after surgery) and give her medicine. And then she jumped over one of the (tall) boxes we used to...

    New bunny won’t come out. RIP

    So he came out on his own (and still is out)! I set up the play pen and I haven’t tried to pet or hold him at all. He sniffed me a few times and didn’t thump so that’s a good sign. And he jumped all crazy and it seemed like a binky but I’m on my phone so I couldn’t really see. He went in his...

    New bunny won’t come out. RIP

    @Blue eyes thanks so much for saying that. I knew it and wasn’t doing that (petting and holding him) until yesterday but my mom was not having it and she told me it was a waste of money (my money...) to buy him if I wasn’t even going to pet or hold him. I tried to explain to her but she wouldn’t...

    New bunny won’t come out. RIP

    So I’m not sure what to do. He still doesn’t really come out and when her does, he goes behind his cage the whole time. I know he needs to be handled a lot as a baby. Whenever he comes up to me, he sniffes me. Then he runs away and sometimes thumps. Not sure why, I always wash my hands before I...

    Digestive supplements

    Digestive supplements

    For snowball, we give her benebac for rabbits and it comes in powder and paste form. I can’t say about the other ones, I’m sure more people can comment on those, but the benebac made her more active although that’s all I noticed before she passed the biggest kidney stone.

    New bunny won’t come out. RIP

    I know, I’m not forcing him out. He actually just came out on his own. He doesn’t slip on the blanket and the blanket doesn’t skip. I know it’s not ideal but it’s temporary until we can move him down with the other rabbits. You are supposed to let them have unlimited pellets when they’re a baby...

    Healthy Treats?

    Any rabbit safe leafy greens (not veggies like carrots) would be a good idea. They’re actually healthy for them and if you spritz them with water, it hydrates them. My rabbits go crazy for romaine lettuce (even though I feed it as a whole meal) and I hear that a lot of buns love herbs. Here’s a...

    New bunny won’t come out. RIP

    That’s sort of like Auggie. He’s only been here a little more than a week so I can see why. The breeders handled him every day so as long as I keep it up, he should be fine. He won’t really let me pet him if he’s outside his cage where he’s still unsure of but inside his cage he will. And he...
