    Safe Mite Treatment for 7 Week Old Baby Lop

    Hi everyone, We have a 7 week old lop (his mum passed away when he was 5.5 weeks old, which is why we have him so young), and I have just noticed since bringing him home 2 days ago that he has mites. Everywhere online says that you can only use flea treatments after 8 weeks so I have two...

We are currently overseas and our rabbit sitter who is looking after our apartment and fur child believes we have bed bugs!!! She has been to the doctor with rashes and bites, and...

    HELP - moved and now not toilet trained

    Hi, I have a 2 and--bit year old Netherland Dwarf named Horatio. We have had him for over two years. He is an inside bunny, fixed, and until now, was perfectly toilet trained. When we first got him, I did everything by the book - started with a small space and slowly made it bigger, only...

    HELP!!! Found a rash while brushing

    While I was brushing Horatio today I round a small bloody spotted rash near the back of his neck. The hair seems thinner there (but it could also be because he is shedding due to Australian Summer coming), but it is only a small patch and then the skin goes normal. He is acting his normal...

    Picky veggie eater

    Since Horatio turned 4 months old about a month ago, I have been slowly introducing new veggies to him and seeing how each one goes with his tummy so as to not have any runny poops etc. At first he LOVED Pok Choy (I used to think it was Bok but it is actually slightly different and is called...

    My Horatio: A Little Dwarf with a Big Heart ♥

    We got Horatio after our hearts were saddened by our first ever pet on our own - Napoleon. He was a beautiful boy, but he bit and scratched and gave us terrible scars on our hearts and our skin. We were lost as to what to do - We loved him so dearly but the emotional and physical strain he put...

    Neutered last night and already pulled out one stitch!

    [I had this in the Nutrition and Behaviour section but it is probably better off here!] My little angel Horatio has already pulled out a stich on one of his wounds! He has internal stitches and then 1 stitch on each testicle. The other one is looking lose too. They look saw red but no open...

    Neutered last night and already pulled out one stitch!

    My little angel Horatio has already pulled out a stich on one of his wounds! He has internal stitches and then 1 stitch on each testicle. The other one is looking lose too. They look saw red but no open skin or oozing of any kind. He seems so happy too like nothing happened! No painful teeth...

    Sultanas toxic?

    Hi Everyone, Tonight Horatio was neutered. He is doing very well at the moment sleeping in his house. Our friend Jo the vet though and I were talking and I mentioned how Ray's new treat to train him is Sultanas. She said they a lot of dogs that they get come in seriously sick are from either...

    Hormones have arrived!

    Hi Everyone, It has been a while since I last posted, and Horatio and I have fully bonded. He grooms me all the time, always looks for my attention when I am near by, never bites me or anything close to it and we adore each other. He is a little angle in disguise and the best thing that has...

    Play area expanded

    Hi everyone, Horatio has been doing fantastically. When we first got him (over a month ago now I think), he had a corner of the study to play in while I supervised full time for about 30 minutes at a time. Then that upgraded to an hour at a time. Then after a few weeks, he upgraded to having...

    Not eating as much

    Hi Everyone, This is about one of my other bunnies that has always lived with my mum. He couldn't come with us when he moved out because he is a giant English Angora, and his wool is too much for a tiny apartment! A few days ago my mum brought home a Asterix cross Lop Rex baby bunny. He...

    Something is wrong

    Hi Everyone, I am worried about my rabbit Horatio. He is normally very full of life and keen to come out and play with me whenever it is play time. He is usually out around 4 times a day for around an hour each because we are trying to toilet train him after just getting him 3 weeks ago. He...

    Difference between types of weeing

    Hi Everyone, Horatio has been doing very well. His toilet training is still coming along - He has found 2 spots in his crate that he LOVES to go in which have has pads cut up and put there since I noticed him like those spots a few weeks ago. He now ONLY goes there though! He will soak the...

    Strict schedules for new bunnies

    Hi everyone, It has been mentioned by a few people on the forum that the key to training a new bunny (toilet training etc.) is to have them out and about on a schedule that they can get used to. I was just wondering how strict that schedule should be and if other people go by this as well...

    Just checking I'm doing it right

    Hello everyone, We have had our little Netherland Dwarf Horatio almost a week now, and we are very excited to say there has been no problems with anything with him. He has a bit of a broken nail which is healing up well (we think it must have just happened some time ago with the breeder), and...

    Found a flea

    Hello everyone, I have found a flea on our 10 week old baby Netherland Dwarf. We got him three days ago and has been settling in amazingly - bikines and flops on my leg in the first day! He loves being stroked while he lays flat on the ground, but today while he was purring away I saw a...

    Too young to bond?

    Hi everyone, As some of you may know, we got a 10 week old Netherland Dward bunny yesterday to try and compliment Napoleon's aggressive/independent behaviour. Poe really can be an angel when he isn't charging at you (which isn't very much, just in his favourite places), but he is very much...

    Losing Hope

    I'm not sure if it is still hormones or it is just going to be his personality, but I am past over Poe's aggressive behaviour. Today I tried being confident and not pulling away from him (which I usually do because of the freshly made scars that cover both my hands now), which seemed to work in...

    Considering purchasing 'Rabbit Training Techniques'

    I was thinking about buying this online book about rabbit training techniques and how to get them to listen and obey. I know they aren't like dogs or anything like that, but Poe's naughty streak is quite exhausting and overwhelming sometimes. He has been much better since he was fixed, but...
