    17 day old kit dragging back legs

    Hi, I have a 17 day old litter of buns and notice one of them is dragging his back legs. I did the pinch test and has feeling in one leg for definite, but I don’t think the other. He’s eating and drinking fine and still has bladder control. Is there any possibility of him regaining feeling in...

    Ear Rash and lumps around mouth

    Hello all! Im am writing today in hopes of advice and knowledge any of you might share. Around Christmas I noticed a weird rash on my 3 month old bun Daisy’s ear.

    Looking for potential answers… (death related)

    My bun, Ainsley passed away yesterday and I just have no idea what happened. She was a 2 year old Lionhead mix (I suspect that she was mixed with mini lop.) She was really lethargic and stopped eating the early morning of December 21 (I noticed at around 3AM, and had brought her to her pen with...

He can take fluids in small amount, only 5-10 ml in one go after which bleeding starts again. He is not able to eat any solid food. Bleeding occurs only when he eats. Vet not here. I...

    Thing in Eye

    So I noticed this thing in Mabs eye late last night and I couldn't tell if was a hair or maybe the start of a cataract; but does this look familiar to anybody? I put an eyedrop in her eye but so far I can't tell if anything has happened because whatever is in her eye seems to move.. Hopefully...

    Poop changes?

    Hi! I’ve had my bun for 4 months now and this is the first time there’s been a poop change so i’m quite nervous! I dug through all of his poop and the photos are my findings (I look at his poop everyday, always making sure there’s never a change since I was told it’s a big thing and so I have...

    Behavior Change

    Hello all, About a week and a half ago I got my 6 month old flemish giant neutered. Prior to that he was very active and rarely wanted to stay in his habitat. I would always let him out at regular intervals and he would run around on the hard wood floor like a race car driver sliding around...

    Rabbit cannot lay down?

    I’ve had my rabbit for nearly 5 years, he’s healthy and nurtured the only time i’ve had to take him to the vet outside of a checkup is a scratch on his eye (which rendered him half blind). he is also a healthy weight, and very affectionate and loving. He has a problem that he has had all of his...

    Pimple/Cyst Like Bump Under Rabbit's Eyes.

    So my rabbit has these two little bumps a few centimetres under both her eyes, and I don't know if they're new, or I just somehow never noticed them before and they're natural for rabbits to have. Anyway, they feel relatively similar in size/same placement, they're kind of like semi hard bumps...

    Depression of my rabbit.

    Some days ago one of my rabbits is dead. It was a male rabbit. Before, two rabbits were so playful and happy together. But i am noticing some strange behave from my female rabbit. She is hiding herself more than usual, she is either sitting alone or laying down. She is eating as normal but...

    Can't figure out the problem!

    One of my bunnies isn't moving that much than usual lately. He is either just sitting alone or sleeping. His diet is okay though. I mean he is eating as usual, but he isn't playing or moving than before. What are the possibilities for this? And what can i do if it's a serious problem?
