    How long for snuffles to clear?

    I would love to have her vaccinated but my gf has read that the vaccine isn't available in Canada? The vet did not think the snuffles should affect her life expectancy unless they became much more severe and there were complications... I sure hope she's right!

    How long for snuffles to clear?

    I absolutely have no intention of getting another rabbit or exposing her to other Rabbits unless my vet says it's fine... I also know there is no "curing" pastuerella, I'm just wondering how long until the symptoms disappear. From my research, I've read almost 100% percent of rabbits have...

    Sigh... What breed is my bunny?

    A As in, I would like to state that I don’t think we chose the wrong breeder... She obviously REALLY cares about her rabbits and following up on their health. She definitely believes the black buck is pure Flemish, though she has had the silver fox question before. I just feel bad mouthing...

    Sigh... What breed is my bunny?

    UPDATE: The breeder was away, I spoke today and would like to clarify that! I would like to amend my previous statement saying the breeder is not a professional, I assumed it was a hobby but it is not. She addressed the issue of crossing black/fawn and admitted it wasn’t ideal but the...

    Sigh... What breed is my bunny?

    Ok, please help me understand.. You think she might end up smaller than the dad? He was still very large, though not the size of the MASSIVE doe. I won’t lie, the concept of having a show rabbit is foreign to me, THAT is one thing that does not matter to me. I just want to know if we’re gonna...

    Sigh... What breed is my bunny?

    I will add this... The breeder was DEFINITELY not professional, and in retrospect I should of known that something could be off the moment she advised scruffing her rabbits (which I refused to do, period).. However, Gen immediately licked my neck when I picked her up and we fell in love...

    Sigh... What breed is my bunny?

    Thanks for the info guys! The breeder basically fed only limited hay with some pellets... We are going to SUBSTANSTIALLY increase the amount of pellets, I feel terrible but the breeder said she basically only needed hay and didn't advise regular greens at all. I knew this couldn't be right...

    How long for snuffles to clear?

    My gorgeous 4 1/2 month year old ? (thought flemish giant but now don't think so) rabbit has had active snuffles since she got stressed on the car ride home. We took her to the vet as advised here and she has been on antibiotics for two weeks... The vet cultured her snot and it came up as...

    Sigh... What breed is my bunny?

    Ok more info... She was NOT fed unlimited hay at the breeders... I find it hard to believe her rabbits were under-nourished as they were HUGE, but I now know that isn't correct. Do you think she could be the daughter of those two rabbits? Is it possible her dad is some breed the breeder (not...

    Sigh... What breed is my bunny?

    Ok Guys, so my gf and I are having an INCREDIBLE first bunny experience, though it's certainly been a slightly rocky road. To start, there is my first post about snuffles... Genevieve has been on antibiotics for two weeks now (cultured at vet, Pastuerella and antibiotic checked to be...

    URGENT Snuffles Question!

    Not sure, I'd guess 5-6lbs, she's pure flemish giant. Her mom was 24 lbs, dad over 20! If I gave her just a handful at morning and night she would be one grumpy bun! I'd say she eats at least 4 handfuls a day on top of her cup-ish of greens (arugula right now) and 1/4-1/2 cup of pellets. She...

    URGENT Snuffles Question!

    Oh a side note... The breeder did NOT advocate unlimited hay, she gave them a large handful a day... However, despite her bunnies seeming happy, she also scruffed the babies, so I didn't take her advice too seriously. I will say that there has been considerable weight gain this week, with our...

    URGENT Snuffles Question!

    Oh a side note... The breeder did NOT advocate unlimited hay, she gave them a large handful a day... I will say that there has been considerable weight gain this week, with our bunny being very food orientated. We open the cage door at ANY time and out she springs on to our laps, you can lead...

    URGENT Snuffles Question!

    I think it's safe to say she is one seriously happy bunny. Today she has only had 3 sneezing fits, and the mucus seems to be way less and kind of drier? Almost the way that if we have a cold and our nose is runny, after it's run it's course the last day the mucus will come out as boogers and not...

    URGENT Snuffles Question!

    Also, is it unusual that she flops after a sneezing attack EVERY time? I always rush over to wipe her nose with warm camomile or reassure her and as I pet her when she stops she ALWAYS either loafs out or flops and starts closing her eyes. She'll do it when not sneezing too, but it's every...

    URGENT Snuffles Question!

    Oh going to the vet was NEVER in question, it's just whether I can wait till Monday to see the ideal Vet closest to me. I am perfectly willing to take her to the emergency vet (Ontario Veterinarians College in Guelph) if that is the right call, but as I said it would literally be a FULL day...

    URGENT Snuffles Question!

    Thanks! It's all the talk about abcesses online that really have me spooked... Sounds like the snuffles can get serious. Hopefully not over a few days, the only clinic open before Monday is about a 2 hour or more journey each way. If she got the snuffles because she was scared on the 45m ride...

    URGENT Snuffles Question!

    I feel like an A-hole not calling the vet till today, should of called right away but this is my first bunny and the breeder told me that it was almost certainly allergies... I really didn't want to/couldn't believe it could be anything else with my brand new baby bun! Especially because I was...

    URGENT Snuffles Question!

    That is such hopeful news... Unfortunately this hasn't been one day, it's been 4. It definitely hasn't gotten worse, if anything it seems better though I'm noticing the mucus more. Probably because I know what to look for. I just went to the store on your suggestion. Fed her a little fresh mint...
