    Post-Spay Pen Set-Up

    Hi all, my bun is getting her spay surgery in a couple of weeks, and I'm currently getting ready for the procedure. Right now, she has this hidey hole: https://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcostore/product/ware-farmers-market-natures-house-for-rabbits Sometimes, she'll jump on top of it. Is this...

    Boarding After Spay?

    Thank you all so much! Yes, I think I’ll try bringing her home after her spay. I think we’d both feel more comfortable having each other. Thank you again!

    Boarding After Spay?

    Hi all, my bun is scheduled to have her spay appointment in about a month. I’ve heard of some vets offering to board the buns for one or two evenings afterward just to monitor their health—something that’s included in the cost of the spay. My vet offers a boarding option where they’d bring the...

    Is this hay too dusty?

    Thank you all for your advice! I've been planning on switching her over to timothy hay. Is there a good recipe for creating treats/cookies out of these leftover crumbles that you would recommend for a young bunny? I haven't given her any fruits yet, and I've been giving her minimal veggies based...

    Is this hay too dusty?

    My bunny is currently a young rabbit (almost 5 months), so I’ve been feeding her Oxbow Alfalfa hay. Every time I buy a new package and open it, the top tends to be filled with long, sturdy strands of hay, but when I finish the top third, the rest of the hay becomes incredibly dusty, like little...

    Brushing - When are you done?

    Hi! This may sound like a silly question, but during a shed, how do you know when is a good time to stop brushing? I’ve been warned not to overbrush, and I’ve heard of people brushing for 2 hours, but is a good rule of them to stop brushing when there’s no resistance, or will there always be...

    Territorial Poops or Accidents?

    Thanks, Catlyn! In general, how many territorial poops per day is considered normal? My bun still pees only in her litter box and most of her poops are in the litter box, but I feel like the number of outside poops has increased for some reason. Yesterday alone, there were at like 20-30 outside...

    Forage/Snuffle Mats

    I recently got my bun a forage/snuffle mat from Toki Hut for enrichment purposes and in order to moderate her pellet intake (I feel like she eats a lot). I’ve tried using it a couple of times, but she doesn’t seem to be interested in foraging for her pellets. She’ll poke around and eat a few...

    Territorial Poops or Accidents?

    Hi all! My bun is 2 months old. She’s been really great at using the litter box for peeing (she hasn’t peed outside the litter box since the third day she first came home). She also leaves the majority of her poops in the litter box. However, nearly every day, she leaves a good number of poops...

    Rabbit Behavior Normal or Unwell?

    Thanks, everyone! I brought her into the vet on Wednesday just as an initial check-up, and the vet confirmed what you all said—that she was healthy and fine! Thank you again!

    Rabbit Behavior Normal or Unwell?

    Update: Here are a couple of more videos of her itching, grooming her body/ears. I also noticed that she had what looked like a bald spot above her ear, where it meets her head, although I'm not sure if this is typical of buns. I read somewhere that fur mites could cause bald patches in...

    Rabbit Behavior Normal or Unwell?

    She’s been eating alfalfa hay and pellets. I’m using a different brand of pellets than what she used to eat at the breeder’s, but they gave me a small bag of pellets and I’ve been mixing it in with the new brand to help her transition. It looks like her poop is normally shaped now, so I think...

    Rabbit Behavior Normal or Unwell?

    Update—she pooped again, and they don't look as misshapen (see attached photo). They're round, like all of her other poops. They're a bit small, but this may be because she's only about 8 weeks old. I also managed to get a video of her itching. She's done this a few times today. Thank you again!

    Washing Scented Quilt

    Thank you so much! Here's my baby bunny flopping inside her exercise pen! We're limiting her space for now while she is litter training.

    Rabbit Behavior Normal or Unwell?

    Hello! I just brought home my baby bun yesterday, and I'm trying to be as hyper-aware and vigilant as possible, as I know that it can be difficult to tell when a bunny is feeling unwell. I've been watching her today, and I noticed that she seems to be breathing rapidly, although I'm not sure if...

    Washing Scented Quilt

    Thanks so much! A related question—I'm concerned that she may have pee on her feet, and I want to spot clean her feet with a wet rag, but I'm afraid that holding my bunny so early would freak her out and cause her not to trust me. Does anyone have any recommendations regarding how best to go...

    Washing Scented Quilt

    I adopted a bunny from a breeder, who also sent a quilt "scented for the bunny" to help facilitate a more comfortable transition home. The quilt was in the carrier under the bunny, and I'm concerned that it may have been soiled at some point during the trip home. I'd like to wash it, but I'm not...
