    Head tilting! Help please

    I noticed that my young bunny ( 4-5 weeks old) has been eating strangely. While eating pellets (only pellets, doesn’t seem to be happening while eating hay) she tilts her head up and to the right while chewing. Is this normal in baby bunnies or does she have tooth problem already or neurological...

    Housing for a Head Tilt Rabbit

    I adopted a second rabbit (Tilly) 5 months ago and she got an ear infection. I’ll spare you all the medical details (my exotic vet was very through).

    Recurring head tilt?

    A little over a year ago my rabbit had head tilt. The vet couldn’t find anything wrong with her so they gave me some antibiotics and she made a full recovery within a couple weeks. I just figured it must have been an ear infection. Well now it’s starting again. Has anyone experienced this or...

    Diagnosing/treating neurological symptoms? Has issues eating/drinking/moving

    EDIT: Updated avatar to a screenshot from a video of Chewy eating hay all on his own yesterday! My wife and I returned from a vacation on Sunday to find our 8 year old half-Satin half-English Spot in a strange position in his hutch.

    Odd Behavior

    I have a five and half old female rabbit. Normally she always tries to run out of the cage to play whenever I go to give her food, and I let her run around the house for a few hours before putting her away. She had babies two weeks ago and she’s been feeding them and cleaning them. Today when I...
