    Hello! I’m new to the forum and I have some questions. I took in two young baby bunnies, my guess is that they’re 3-5 weeks old. One is doing well, but the other has been very lethargic from the start and she has been declining drastically today. She’s been getting 1-4mL electrolytes, goats milk, and banana purée three times a day since I’ve had her as well as free choice alfalfa and alfalfa-based pellets. There is some discharge around her nose. Her lips have become blue in the past few hours and she’s still looking like she’s getting worse. I’ve been giving sugar and electrolytes via syringe in hopes to help her perk up, but it doesn’t look to be helping. Is there much more that I can do, or is it time to allow her to pass?

    Take them to the vet. Usually they need their mom until about 9 weeks i believe so i wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t make it
