    Alfalfa Hay for Babies

    Give him alfalfa hay until 7 months, but you should also begin offering Timothy hay now in small quantities and get him used to it. After 7 months, switch him to Timothy with Alfalfa as a treat.

    Rabbit with "a cold"..

    Agree with Blue Eyes... It sounds like Snuffles, which is serious and can turn to deadly pneumonia in no time. Especially when they have actual snot in their nose. Get Terramycin ointment and put it in the eyes and a little on the nose of the rabbit twice a day. Also try to get oral antibiotics...

    Baby Bunnies Dying.. please help.

    I second the advice to use a warm blanket for a single baby, keep the baby indoors, and continue helping it nurse from the mother. I do not advise to flip the mother over. Just let her stand on her feet in a natural position and gently but firmly hold her still and get the baby nursing. Good...

    Fur and ear mites

    Simplest and least harmful to the rabbit is to use oil and/or ointment. Definitely ointment for the fur mites. You need to use a non-toxic food grade oil, for example, olive oil, sunflower oil, etc. If you have vitamin E oil or vitamin E oil tablets and can cut one open and add it to the oil, it...

    help!!!!! baby bunnies

    Put the Put the baby in a high-sided cardboard box. Since there only one and no one to snuggle with to keep warm, I would use a blanket in the box. I have always used baby blankets with infants and never had it fail me. The mother might be knocking them out of the nest. I would keep the baby...

    Have any of you noticed people act weird towards you because of the COVID-19

    I'm in Seattle, the epicenter of the outbreak in the U.S., and yes, people are acting weirder than usual. And the store shelves are bare of anything related to cleaning or hygiene. The colleges and Universities are shutting down campuses, major employers are forcing everyone to work from home...

    newborn baby bleeding? stuck! help pls!

    A little trace amount of blood is okay, but from what you describe, I suspect the baby might have an injury. Please carefully inspect the newborn for cuts and scrapes. Mother rabbits sometimes accidentally injure babies, especially when two litters are present. You can gently dab at the blood...

    Return my bunny?

    I really think a rabbit isn't the right pet for you. Even though rabbits are really cute, they are not for everybody. the issues that you are having with your present rabbit, you are going to have with every rabbit. It is normal rabbit behavior. Some rabbits may be more extreme than others...

    Not eating after spay!!

    Oh my God! That is horrible. You must insist on Metacam (Meloxicam). 1.5 ml for the first day, 0.7 ml for 5 days after that. She is in too much pain to eat. Pain causes stasis and shock and is often fatal. Sorry to say this, but your vet is a moron.

    Is it time to give up?

    So sorry for you. Thank you for everything you did for her.

    Is it time to give up?

    Have you had her teeth examined? This sounds like tooth issues to me. Three years is right around the time when tooth issues can start. Bacteria in the mouth often causes eye and nasal infections. It sounds bacterial. Penicillin G injections worked well in my rabbits when similar issues...

    My Mom Wants Me to breed my rabbit

    Agree completely that there is no money in rabbits. Seriously. I love mine dearly, but they are a constant financial liability. This goes double for babies. A pregnant and nursing mother can eat up to five times her normal food intake, and this goes on for at least 3-4 months. Growing babies...

    help!!!!! baby bunnies

    Yes, the sooner the better for hay and pellets. It's far better to let them nibble and acclimate slowly while they are still primarily sustained by the mother's milk. Small bits of carrot and apple are okay, just not much at a time. Sugary produce is dangerous if they eat too much...

    4 H bunnies

    Yes... exactly why I never approve of 4H or of allowing rabbits to be given to people participating in 4H. They are just an object to them, a commodity. They are unenlightened.
