I just found loose poop everywhere in my buns cage, what causes that out of the blue. No new foods have been given,,does apple or pellets cause this? That's all they've had other than lettuce. Should I take everything away but hay??
Hay won't hurt definitely, in my case we ran out of pellets that evening because deliveries were late and we had to wait until Monday, expected on Friday, so I had to give something to get a few minutes for taking out her toilet since she is very territorial and doesn't like my hand in her space, so she's got a slice of an apple but ate too fast so I had to give another two, not big maybe 1/4 of an middle sized sweet apple in total, but still, she's a bit on a fat side so not getting fruit too often and was clearly too much for her. All my fault. Everybody's got some extra apple that eveningI cleaned it all up so I can monitor if there's any more... I'm thinking it was too much apple.
So only hay for a day or two won't hurt? There's two buns and I'm pretty sure it's my female she's smaller and may have ate more than him...
There hasn't been anything new, I've had them a year and a half. Thats the first this has ever happened, pretty sure she just made a piggy of herself with the cilantro. They've had it before, but not as much at once. Instead of their usual lettuce bowl in the evening I filled it with cilantro., since I had a lot in the fridge. (to use it up) She had some that morning as well.If you're certain it's the greens, it's possible it might not be all greens but just select ones your rabbit is sensitive to. Another possibility is if you are introducing them into the diet too quickly. New foods like pellets and veggies, need a slow gradual introduction, starting one at a time with a very small amount to make sure no digestive upset occurs. Then only increasing gradually over a week or two, if that one food doesn't cause problems.
Yeah, I'm very relieved... thanks alotToo much cilantro at once when she wasn't used to that amount, does sound like the cause. I'm glad you got it figured out and she's doing fine. It's always a relief to figure out what's going on with them, and that it isn't something more serious.
