My rabbits are kept in a temperature controlled environment. However, we had a very bad storm roll through this morning while I was at work, and it caused the power to be out most of the day at my house. The temperature outside was approx. 85 degrees and extremely humid. I have 1 Holland Lop kit (the only survivor of the mom's first litter) that is 3 weeks old. She had wetness around her mouth, she was breathing heavy, and her ears were a darker pink then normal. As soon as I came in the door and noticed the signs, I grabbed her and went outside with her to get fresh air and a good breeze. She was acting perfectly normal, but I know the signs of heat stroke, and it sure resembled them to me. She dried up around her mouth and nose, her ears went back to their normal light pink color, and her breathing is back to normal. She was still acting lively though, and continues to act normal, but I am worried... I do not get paid for 2 days, so I can't take her to the vet until then. I also have the power back on and the rabbit room back to its normal temperature (67 degrees). The kit is acting normal still, and is very alert. Do you think she will be alright?
