    Is this an infection?

    I‘m worried that this could be serious since ive read that medical problems in rabbits are pretty hard to spot behavior wise.

    Is my bunny cold?

    Hey! My dwarf rabbit was shaking when I held her is that normal or is she cold? My rabbits used to be inside but have to be in the garage now, they have a heat lamp and blankets but I’m worried that she’s cold? What is the coldest temperature a dwarf bunny can take?

    4 day old kit bulging eye

    Anyone have this issue before? I have a 4 day old kit, when I checked the nest the day of birth there was a scratch close to the eye and I was advised that it would heal on its own and it has, but now one eye is visibly swollen and I’m concerned. Anything I can do? Thank you

    My rabbit glen is around 8 months old and has had standing ears all his life, sometimes one of his ears flops when he is relaxed but it usually goes back to normal quickly. His left ear has flopped down and has stayed like that for a few days. I’m pretty sure this is normal as all of his 11...

    Bunny on antibiotic and antitoxin has mismatched poops.

    Long story short, we had a plant (Madagascar Dragon Tree) that was growing in our yard that was toxic to my bunny because she ate the leafs of a growing bud.
