    To spay or not to spay ... (seeking research)

    Even though I understand that spaying is recommended to reduce the risk of certain cancers I've been very hesitant to spay my 1 1/2 year-old rescue bunny due to the high cost and the risk of her dying in surgery. In terms of cost, my own vet charges $1600 and the last time I checked the lowest...

    Is my bunny wasting away or just shedding like crazy?

    Wise bunny parents, Okay, here comes another post from another worried bunny owner... 🙄 My bunny's been shedding like crazy and now that she's lost a lot of fur she feels very bony and looks strangely elderly. (I don't know her actual age because she's a rescue but my vet thinks she's young.)...

    Could my indoor bunny have fleas???

    I just noticed what looks like fleas on my bunny's stuffed animal friend who we keep in her cage. Is it possible for an indoor rabbit to get fleas? I have been getting a lot of weird bites this summer and now I'm wondering if I'm getting them indoors. I'd appreciate suggestions on how to make a...

    I think my indoor bunny was spooked by skunk smell.

    Last night my daughter woke me up to tell me that our bunny was thumping like crazy, which is very out of character. I came downstairs and she looked terrified. She was thumping, hyperalert, and breathing heavily. Occasionally she would take a few steps toward one side of the room and then slink...

    Bunny cage - Room for improvement?

    Hi All, My bunny's cage (22" X 38" by 19" high) is in the corner of our living room. During the day her cage is open so that she can go in and out for water, litter, hay and naps with her stuffed bunny friend. At night when we go to bed I close her cage door for added safety. This has been a...

    Spring fever? Hormones? Bunny's suddenly super frisky

    Hi All, My bunny, who we took in last Halloween, has been settling in really nicely and getting much more relaxed around our family. But suddenly this week she's going berserk - she barely settles down to be petted and then jumps up and runs around in circles, grunting. This is really new...

    Hiding spots to comfort bunny who startles easily

    My bunny startles terribly at the tiniest little sound. We're a pretty quiet family without kids or other pets and she seems well-adjusted. but I'm afraid that at some point she'll end up having a heart attack. This week we had some workmen in the house and she was terrified of the banging even...

    Tips for rabbit-proofing my kitchen -- especially gas stove and range

    I'm inspired by all the folks on these forums who have figured out how to let their bunnies free-range safely 24/7. I would love to get to that point. Since our bunny joined our family 2 months ago she's been staying in her cage except for 2 hours each morning and evening when she hangs out with...

    My rabbit's not a chewer. Will she have tooth problems?

    My newly adopted bunny, Joey, isn't a big chewer and tho it's great not to have to worry so much about her destroying the house I am wondering if this will cause her tooth problems in the future. My previous bunny was a chew-aholic and loved the ecotrition snak shak logs. The vet always said...

    Is a stuffed animal companion a good idea?

    Hello All, I recently adopted a rescue rabbit, Joey. She hangs around with us in the living room for a couple of hours each morning and evening, but during the day is mostly in her cage (30 x 20"). She gets a lot of snuggles when she's out, but I'm thinking about giving her a plush stuffed...

    My bunny's addicted to fresh veggies. Is this a problem?

    I just adopted a rescue rabbit a few weeks ago who was probably an easter bunny and weighs 2.6 pounds. I'm wondering if I'm feeding her unhealthy quantities of fresh greens. She gets lots of Oxbow western timothy and orchard grass mix, but she doesn't seem to love hay the way my last pet rabbit...
