    Finding cecotropes in litter box

    I have found cecotropes in the litter box. would plastic grate over the litter box prevent my bunny from eating cecotropes ? The reason why i put the grate is that my bunny likes to sleep in it and dig. So pee would get all over him. Should i remove the grate ?

    Uneaten Cecotropes

    My Apollo has been acting strangely lately. He’s 4 months and he’s been flopping down, sleeping a little more and not always wanting to come out of his cage. I switched his pellets and he seemed to like them but now he doesn’t eat all of them like usual. Also his favorite snacks like blueberry...

    Cecotropes, extra lying around

    My bunny produces lots of healthy poops, I am pretty sure he is a megacolon bunny because he's always had issues with cecotropes. Currently he eats them but there's still smears all over his pen and around his mouth. Not a mega ton but enough that I feel I should wash his blankets daily. I've...

    Should I clean under my rabbits chin?

    Floyd has poop issues, lately they've been great and everything has been quite normal but he has some poop under his chin! I've tried massaging it out but it's kinda dried under there. It's probably from his cecotropes, do you think he will be able to clean it himself or should i do something...

    Update on previous URGENT post

    His diarrhea has calmed down a bit. I have seen a couple regular fecal pellets amd the soft poo has more round and formed parts to it rather than the previous straight mush. He is eating his cardboard box and does not want to eat his hay. Not sure if that's an urge to play and chew or if he is...

    Soft Fecal Pellets photo attached please help!

    Hi, My bun has been having soft, moist fecal pellets for the last few days. He is prone to intermittent soft cecotropes as I've written about before. But he is eating his cecal pellets fine as I have watched him eat them and see none in his litter or pen. These are definitely fecal pellets but...

    Call to Cecal Dysbiosis or ISC rabbit Owners

    Hey! So my rabbit has cecal dysbiosis. And recently he had a random flare up, I'm blaming these new fruit treats that I thought I was giving sparingly but not sparingly enough so my fault. I have put him on a hay only diet now for 5 days so far and he is definitely producing and eating normal...

    Cecal Dysbiosis

    I'm so sad, Floyd's intermittent soft cecotropes have returned. He was doing so well for three months! I was so happy. Not sure what has caused the return, it could be the fruit treat I feed him every once in a while, or less likely, the fact that I had to feed him regular bok choy instead of...

    Moist Poops!

    Hey everyone! So Floyd has had digestive trouble in the past so I get really touchy and picky about his poops! Last night I got stuck in a storm and had to get my pet sitter to drop by the house to change his litter, give fresh hay, and let him run around for a very short (unfortunately)...

    Question about Cecotropes!

    Hi all! So my bunny is an un neutered male, 7 months old. Ever since i got him he has struggled with diet issues and cecum disorders etc which is why he hasn't been neutered yet. He is finally healthy and on a well balanced diet of timothy hay and greens. I used to see cecotropes everywhere...

    Help me figure out why my rabbits are STILL producing excess cecotropes

    I have two bonded Holland Lop brothers that live on my front porch, and have been having problems with them leaving cecotropes around. I addressed this last month (see this thread)...
