    Post Spay

    Nessa is doing much better today, not as grumpy and she's starting to eat normally. I finally got a look at her stomach when she was flopped out in her cage, and I thought the incision looked weird? The vet told me that there would be internal sutures and that Nessa's skin would be closed with...

    Post-Spay help needed ASAP

    So Nessa had her spay this morning! She did great, but now she's at home with me and putting up a major fight to everything. I have to give her pain meds (via syringe) and she absolutely refuses to let the syringe anywhere near her face/mouth. I can tell she's in pain, and I really want to give...

    First vet visit

    I finally did it! I scheduled Nessa for an appointment at a wonderful vet's office I found to get her spayed. :time: The appointment is Friday, and it's just a check up before we get into the nitty gritty of her spay. I have some questions, being that I've never taken her to a vets office...

    Baby Cottontails.

    These are common things I hear while working at my job. (A wildlife rehabilitation shelter): "I was mowing the grass and accidentally went over a cottontail rabbit nest!" "My cat just brought home with a baby bunny!" "I just found a baby bunny and the mother seems to have abandoned it!"...

    Broken nail? Need advice.

    Nessa was goofing around and running bunny 500s, when suddenly I noticed she was starting to act strange and limping. I picked her up and saw a little puddle of blood under her front paw. After my initial "paranoid-bunny-mom" freak out, I noticed her toenail had broken off at the base. Her nails...

    Need some advice.

    I wasn't sure which forum section this belonged in: so I just decided to put it in the "Off Topic" section. :p Okay where do I begin. I guess I should give a little personal background so this whole ordeal makes a slight amount of sense. I am a 24/7 caretaker to my chronically ill mother. She...

    New pellets?

    I sent a family member of mine to the pet store to buy me rabbit pellets. Well I didn't specify which brand of pellets, so I now have a new bag of an generic brand of pellets and no receipt. Will Nessa be okay if I introduce her to these new pellets? Or should I just go buy a new bag when I can...

    Crazy rabbit noises

    Nessa has been making some extravagant honks and squeaks lately. I finally managed to get a recording of a small session. Are these noises normal? I'm not touching her or messing with her in any way, she just goes bonkers. That "ACK" noise towards the end (followed by my, "Oh my gosh!") was...

    Bunny birthdays

    Nessa's first birthday is coming soon! (Dec 3rd) My little baby is growing up so fast. Sniffle. Anyway, I'm curious to know what other bunny owners have done for their fur babies birthdays? Special treats, toys, privileges, etc? :)

    Depressed bunny?

    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong with my rabbit parenthood-- but I have one unhappy bunny on my hands. No binkies. No bunny 500's. No bunny kisses. :( She doesn't want to run around and play, she doesn't want to even step out of her cage. All Nessa does is gorge herself on hay and pellets. She...

    Humping?

    So, lately Nessa has been a bit obsessed with.. *awkward cough* humping the stuffed polar bear in her cage. And I don't mean a mild little session, I'm talking every time I turn around she's going at it with that poor bear. :embarrassed: She's never been much of a... humpy... rabbit so I assume...

    Eating feces?

    I've noticed over the past few weeks (more so in the past few days) Nessa has been eating her poop. It's not the cecotropes though, which is why I'm posting this. She eats the hard, round ones. I'm not sure why she's doing this? She's never eaten them before and I've never heard of rabbits...

    Gerbil question?

    I know it's a bit strange to ask about gerbils on a rabbit website, but I'm not sure where else to turn. I have a wonderfully sweet 4 year old gerbil, Daisy. Over the past few months Daisy's teeth have been splitting. So I've been trimming them every other week for her, and giving her soft...

    Bloated stomach???

    Okay, so Nessa has been acting extremely lazy today. I brought her out of her cage and noticed her stomach feels very bloated. That worried me immediately. She started to poop smelly, squishy, lumped together poops a few minutes after being out of her cage. Her eating hasn't been any different...

    Bunny poop questions.

    "Bunny poop questions." Lovely topic, no? :p Anywho. Onto my concerns: Over the past week, Nessa's poops have begun to smell horribly and become mushy and wet. They are a semi-normal size. I picked her up today and noticed she smelled awful so I flipped her over and discovered she had quite the...

    Nasty smelling urine

    Over the past few days, Nessa's urine was started to smell disgusting. It's almost unbearable for me. She's not peeing outside of her box and the urine is a normal color, but the smell is just repulsive. (I line her box with newspaper.) She's only just now developed this smell. She's 8 months...

    Bad behavior.

    Well, I'm back from vacation. Nessa did wonderfully, according to her pet sitter. (Though she apparently did try to nip the sitter a couple times.) When I came back I was so excited to see her! I walked into the room (expecting a joyful bunny) aaaand Nessa completely ignored me. I tried to pet...

    Not pooping enough?

    For the past two days I've noticed Nessa hasn't been pooping a lot. Yesterday there was hardly anything in the bottom of her cage (We're still working on litter training.) and today there is even less. Only a small pile. I'm starting to get a bit concerned.. She's still very active and...

    I gots a harness!

    So my Momma came back from the bunneh store today and brought me somedin. It's called a "harness". I didn't like it at first. I kicked and scratched and thumped my feets. But den she gave me treats so I let her put it on me. :innocent (If my hooman gives me treats, I usually forget what ever...

    Nessa

    Nessa is a smoke pearl Holland Lop. I adopted her in February of '14 to fulfill my lifelong dream of owning a rabbit. Never could I have imagined how affectionate and loyal my little bunny would be! She is a lovable girl who enjoys being fed bananas.She is quite the free spirit who loves to...
