    bonded bunnies (possibly) fighting?

    Hi! I am new to this forum. I had a sweet little bunny boy named Alfie but he passed away in 2021. About 2 weeks ago I got a pair of bonded bunnies: Lily (the mother, grey) and Moo (her son, white with grey spots). They are both around 2 years old but obviously Lily is slightly older. This...

    Bald spots when shedding?

    So a few months ago we found Dale in our backyard, we’ve overcome abscesses, respiratory infections and now I fear there is yet another issue stemming from his past possibly? He is shedding a ton right now and I’ve noticed that he has a lot of bald spots. He does not live with any other rabbits...

    Rabbit fur genetics - do rex, satin and lionhead combine?

    Hey all! I have combed through the internet, and have found very little information on the properties of rabbits with multiple recessive fur quality traits. Results I found include posts on why mixing a satin rabbit with rex results in a normal fur for all of the offspring, and I well...

    What colour is my mini lop

    I have two mini lop rabbits, Fifi and Pods. I would like to know what colours they are classified as and if they have a special coat or how to tell.

    Rabbit plucking his fur?

    Hi! I have a 2 year old bunny named Merlot, already neutered. I had to go under a emergency surgery 2 weeks ago and have been recovering since, so I haven't been able to pay full attention to my bunny, even though he's been giving plenty attention to me, as he's veeeery caring and sweet...

    Wet matted fur around one side of mouth

    Hi all, so I took one of my rabbits to the vet yesterday to get her teeth checked. The last couple days I've noticed that around one side of her mouth and chin she has perpetual wetness and it's causing her fur to mat. I brushed it out a few times and even cut a bit but it's still just very wet...

    Is this normal?

    Hello everyone! Today I was looking at my rabbit and I noticed he has a heart-shaped bunch of fur around his nose. Looking back at older pictures and videos, it didn't seem that noticeable.

    Is this weird?

    Just a little over a month ago, my first rabbit moved onto another life. I don’t have any of her fur, even though she shed loads during shedding season. I wish I’d kept some. Now, I’ve got another bunny and he’s starting to shed and I’ve been collecting his fur. Is this weird? It feels slightly...

    How do I get pee off my bunny?

    Hey! This is my first post here, hope this is the right discussion :) So one of my bunnies, Luise, has been peeing on the other, Charlie, a lot. Like, all over her.

I use KMR milk with heavy cream for them, but for two of the babies they make a mess and the milk/formula gets all over their fur. I try to rinse it off but they...
