    What happened to my rabbit

    The first odd behavior you describe sounds more like seizures and not a stroke. The other behavior that you thought were seizures just before she passed, are more likely to be the convulsions that occur just prior to death.

    Developing Bald Spot and Flaky Skin, Mites??

    The 1% liquid ivermectin can be used to treat mites. However I would always recommend consulting with a knowledgeable rabbit vet first. Especially if you don't have experience calculating dosages and correctly administering meds. Only the smallest amount is needed to treat mites, and...

    Rabbits attacked each other :(

    It depends on how deep the wounds are, if your rabbit is in pain, and if the wounds get infected. You also need to make sure to check both rabbits over very thoroughly, including the belly area, so you don't miss any hidden wounds. If the wounds aren't deep enough to need stitches and there...

    Developing Bald Spot and Flaky Skin, Mites??

    Most likely fur mites. Vet is your best option, but if you can get Revolution(selamectin) or xeno 450(ivermectin, UK) spot on applications, these will treat mites and are considered safe for use with rabbits. Medirabbit: fur mites MediRabbit (selamectin dosing) https://rabbit.org/vet-listings/

    How can I help my rabbit withstand hot weather?

    Large marble or ceramic tiles. You can also rotate them out of the freezer to keep them extra cool. Freeze a 2L coke bottle(filled with water) and put that out. If you set it on one portion of the tile, the frozen bottle will help keep the tile cool longer...

    What to do about the smell

    It doesn't sound like he's getting too much protein in his diet. Excess protein can cause a stronger ammonia smell to the urine. So I think diet wise your fine. Try the extra wood pellets. I think you'll find that makes a big difference. If you have an option to keep your rabbits room...

    Rabbit doesn’t wanna use his litter box?

    When determining if there's a problem with your rabbits poop, you are looking at consistent changes. There will almost always be an occasional odd poop, but when the rest are normal, it's usually not a problem. If your rabbit was consistently producing small, hard, dark fecal poop throughout...

    What to do about the smell

    You need the wood pellet litter to be 1 - 1.5 inches deep at least. The urine draining to the bottom of the pelleted litter and having unsoaked litter covering that, is what keeps the smell under control. A layer of hay over the litter will help control the smell too. But urine soaked hay...

    my bunny nose is weird

    If you're in the UK, Europe, Australia/NZ, western US, or another country where myxomatosis is present in the rabbit population, there's a good chance your rabbit has contracted myxomatosis, and you need to get your rabbit seen by an experienced rabbit vet today, immediately. If it is myxo, to...

    Theo ate a poisonous plant! Please Help!

    Ok, so just from some quick research, it seems mildly toxic to cats, but it's not seeming like it's going to be a big problem for rabbits. Just keep an eye on him until you have to leave, then check on him as soon as you get back. I'm guessing he's going to be just fine.

    Echinacea

    If you are still going to use it in the water, just make sure to change it frequently. You don't want it causing the water to go bad and grow bacteria.

    Echinacea

    The herb/flower would be better than powder, then it could just be fed straight. Either the cut up dried herb or grown fresh if you know anyone that has it. I can't say how much to feed as I've never used it. Though I have read of others using it to help with their rabbits. I agree not...

    Why has my neutered rabbit of 7 years started humping and spraying again?

    Some rabbits will get a surge of hormones in the spring, even spayed/neutered ones, causing a temporary 'spring fever' where they will have increased hormonal behaviors like digging, nesting, spraying, marking, humping, etc. This usually only lasts a few weeks and then they settle back down to...

    Rabbit doesn’t wanna use his litter box?

    What's his litter box set up like? Big box, little corner box? Do you use pelleted litter and do you put a soft layer of hay over the litter? Rabbits don't necessarily poop constantly. They can hold it in and chose when they want to poop. So there will be times, especially the middle of the...

    Misshapen and small rabbit poops?

    If he's continuing to eat, he'll be drinking. A rabbit will stop eating if they can't or aren't drinking anything, for whatever the cause is.

    Rabbit doesn’t wanna use his litter box?

    You're saying he pees in there ok but he's just not pooping in there? Does he usually poop in there? Is this just happening after the litter box is cleaned out and eventually he goes back to using it? Is he neutered yet?

    Weaning advice please!

    That's how I did it. Took a couple away at a time. But I did it with 2 or 3 days in between, to give more time for the milk flow to lessen. Yes, it can be less stressful for them to remove the mom to a new area instead of the babies being weaned. A way to do this would be to move the mom and...

    Misshapen and small rabbit poops?

    That brand's good too. I would just continue to feed the pellets and reduce the amount. As long as the alfalfa pellets aren't causing any other issues, there's no reason you can't just use them up if they're a good quality brand of pellet. I would just continue to feed them until you have...
