    Goose's nail is missing and he's bleeding

    Hello, Just a few minutes ago I picked up Goose to groom him and clip his nails and I before I began, I noticed one of my fingers had blood on it. I had just clipped my dogs' nails so I thought maybe I had cut one of theirs too short which seemed odd because I was sure I hadn't. So while...

    Rabbits Make Me Angry

    I was browsing craigslist today and saw so many ads for rabbits. One was a dutch mix, gray and white, tiny and adorable, and I want her. But I have a well established bonded pair and I cannot risk upsetting their utopia by adding a third rabbit to my household, so now I'm angry at my rabbits for...

    Free Roaming Experiences

    Hello all! I've had my bonded pair of rabbits for a year now. They are spayed and neutered and I'm very confident all hormonal issues are gone and they are litter box trained. I would like to begin the process of bunny proofing my home and I'm looking for experiences from those of you who free...

    How Much Greens After Surgery?

    Butterscotch got spayed yesterday and she is home recovering now. The vet did not send us home with any pain meds so I suspect she is not feeling very good. I gave her a thick, soft, clean fleece blanket to lay on and she has a low sided litter box full of fresh hay, which I saw her in this...

    Where can I buy Critical Care??

    Where do you buy your Critical Care? I've checked Oxbow's site, Petco, Chewy and Small Pet Select and no one has it. The only place I can find it is ebay. I'd rather not risk buying from ebay. Butterscotch gets spayed this Friday and I want some on hand just in case. Would my vet have it maybe...

    What grooming tool do you use?

    I need help finding a good grooming comb for my Netherland Dwarf rabbits. I've purchased a couple of them now but I don't really feel like they're very effective. I barely get any hair from my rabbits. What do you use to groom your rabbits? Thank you!

    Post neuter question

    Goose got neutered yesterday and he has been home for approximately 12 hours. I have only seen him nibble a little hay so far. He will not eat pellets or drink water. He is otherwise acting normal, he doesn't seem to be too concerned about his incision site. He grooms Butterscotch's face when...

    What are your thoughts on this hutch?

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F254056856731 As I get closer to my two rabbits bonding and living together, I'm looking into creative and spacious housing options. My rabbits are housed in my living room and the hope is for them to soon be...

    Peacebunny Island in Minnesota

    I read the sweetest article this morning in today's issue of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. It's available online, I think you guys would enjoy it! It features a 15 year old boy who has been rescuing rabbits since he was 9 years old. He and his family have purchased two islands in Minnesota that...

    How do I get involved in showing rabbits?

    This question is kind of hypothetical but I'm wondering what it takes to get involved in showing rabbits? Is showing stressful for the rabbits? Can any purebred rabbit be entered in shows? Thank you!

    Chewing On Stall Pro Pine Pellet Bedding

    As anticipated, Butterscotch is munching on the Stall Pro Pine Pellets in her litter box. They are covered with hay but she digs down to the bottom of her litter box to access the pellets. I can't tell if she's consuming them but she is definitely munching on them. Is there any safety concern...

    Stall Pro Pine Pellets OK?

    I couldn't find any info on this particular brand of pine horse stall pellets. I just picked these up at Farm Supply, are they ok to use for my rabbits? I do not use a grate over their litter boxes so they will have direct contact with the pine pellets. And Butterscotch might try to eat them but...

    Should I Attempt a Trio?

    Goose is 15 weeks and will be getting neutered on August 30th. Butterscotch is 13 weeks and will be getting spayed in October. They will remain separated until probably December or so, when Butterscotch heals. So far they get along beautifully. I fell in love with sable point babies that are...

    Butterscotch and Goose's Bunny Blog

    I really enjoy reading these blogs so I decided to start one too. I grew up writing in journals which were meant to be kept private so this whole public "journaling" thing will be a fun new experiment for me! I'm hoping if my bunnies gain an audience here that people will point out what I'm...

    How much handling to I force on my baby rabbit?

    My buck is 12 weeks old and he absolutely hates being handled. I don't think his breeder socialized him very much. He has his first vet appointment in 2 weeks and I don't want the trip to the vet to be extremely stressful for him. Additionally, I need to be able to trim his nails, check his...

    My bunnies have taken over my entire living room!!

    I had to separate my bunnies and now their cages and play pens have taken up MY WHOLE LIVING ROOM!! Oh boy. It will be like this probably for the rest of the year and if they don't get along after spay and neuter surgeries are done then I'll have to be very creative with housing solutions. I'm...
