    Clump of fur stuck near rabbit's bottom?

    I've looked this situation up and a lot of similar situations simply seem to be poop. I don't know, I don't really see poop, it's just a clump of fur that's.. stuck there and I'm not sure what to do. It might still be poop though! What do i do? The fur at the end seems to be getting dirty...

    Rabbit no longer interested in eating pellets, still eating greens and hay

    Hi all, One of my rabbits has lost all interest in her pellets. Both of them eat twice a day, with both meals consisting of about 1/8 cup of pellets next to their greens. The boy goes wild for them but she doesn't touch them anymore, causing him to steal them and get more than his diet's...

    Can I feed grass instead of hay?

    I have a 5 year old rabbit who doesn’t eat hay, she only eats hay cubes. It’s not enough though. We took her to the vet today and the vet said it seems like she’s beginning to develop GI stasis. I know this can kill bunnies which is why I want to know if grass is a good substitute for hay. I’ve...

    Bunny suddenly lethargic

    So I first got my rabbit about a week ago and from the very beginning she’s been very active, especially once the clock hits 7:30 pm. Since I had her I was feeding her a diet of timothy hay and pellets, however, I wasn’t sure if she was too young to start introducing veg (she’s 3 months) but...

    Bonded pair - different diets?

    I'm new to bunny ownership but just adopted 2 cuties on Friday! Since they're still young (estimated age around 4-5 months), on the advice of the shelter vet, I'm continuing with unlimited hay and pellets, and beginning to introduce some veggies. Right now the veggies are just in very small...

    Young rabbit diet?

    I’m getting a young (I think 2 months old) rabbit soon, and I’m not 100% sure what I’m going to need to feed her, as everything I see or read tells me different things. I’m going to be feeding her Oxbow Young Rabbit pellets for sure, as those seem to be the most highly recommended. But how much...

    My bunny is not a hay eater

    Hi all, my nearly one year old male neutered Holland Lop, Mookie, barely eats his hay. When I originally got him at about 6 weeks he did, but gradually he just stopped. He does eat his high fiber pellets, and I round out his diet with leafy greens daily (mostly celery leaves). I have him...
