    We had to let Cinder go

    I had to be away for a week due to a death in the family and didn't leave clear enough instructions because the bunnies were fed too much vegetables when I was gone, and Cinder might have also twisted her stomach. We did x rays and gave her simethicone, metacam, metoclopramide, cisapride, IV...

    Unflippable water bowl?

    Hi all, I know a water bowl is better for bunnies than a bottle, but my rabbit Cinder keeps knocking her bowl or throwing it over, dumping the water all over.
