Not long ago I lost one of my rabbits, FooFoo, there is a thread about her. Now I am down to two rabbits, a male and a female (5 and 5.5 yo) They spend their day in the yard and go inside for the night. If the weather is not good, like wet or too cold and windy, Paul (the male) may not want to come out and we don't insist. Thumperina always wants to go outsise. Yesterday I noticed that Paul was in some kind of distress. I saw him sitting in the middle of the yard, doing some repetitive head movements and I think his breathing was more frequent than normal. He looked restless. Usually they stay under the bush or under the deck or under under plastic crates that we have for them. I brought him inside, cleaned the rug that they use so that I can see if he poops or not. He was shaking and scratching his ears a lot, so I thought maybe he had mites. In summer , I treated them with Revolution twice but then I ran out of it, needed another trip to the vet and never picked up another dose. I looked in his ears and didn't see much. While he was sitting there, he pooped some poop and ate some veggies. All this was happening on Friday 4pm, my closest vet didn't wish to see us (they were about to close), so I ended up going there and getting another dose of Revolution that I applied to both rabbits upon arrival home. I'd say that after this Paul calmed down and I think he is acting as normal. He has great appetite. Now I am concerned about Thumperina who isn't spayed. I have been sick myself, I finally feel better after being sick for a month (during that month FooFoo passed) so I am preparing to take more care of Thumperina, consult several vets about spaying her and so on. Anyway, looking at her now, I am thinking that maybe she is not well too. SHe also looks kinda restless, and her breathing rate, I think, maybe higher than normal. (what is a normal breathing rate for them? ) She was also found sitting in the yard not under cover, I see her also being restless and doing some strange movements (can't even describe... moving her head in a strange way, shaking her head, doing movements with her jaw like if she is eating but she is not ...) she did eat some kale this morning but not all of it... I am not able to tell you if she poops OK. to tell, I will need to separate her watch her while she is alone. I just saw that another rabbit pooped a lot and he ate well... Oh one thing that I can't explain and FooFOo had this too before she died. Fur at the base of her ears looks like it was wet and then dried... not smooth. DOes it suppose discharge from the ears? I don't see anything wrong inside the ears. just the fur at the ear base looks strange. I will be taking her to the vet on MOnday, but I am not sure what they even need to look at... vet here are not rabbit vets... not very experienced.
