      I have had Bambi for a little over a year.  When I got Bambi one of my first questions was "boy or girl"? I was told that I was getting a boy…but we recently added a slightly older male (Thumper) to our family.  At first they hated eachother (especially Bambi) but I expected that since Bambi was so used to all of the attention.  They recently started getting along much better…too much better.  Bambi lays down in front of Thumper in a…ummm….suggestive? way and he has taken advantage of it.  We separated them as soon as possible, we figured we had better wait until we could double check Bambi’s sex, but now Bambi is acting differently.  He/she lays differently is sluggish and just seems to be in a different mood.  Is it time to go to the vet? What do rabbits act like when they are pregnant?

      By the way…if Bambi is pregnant we will find homes personnally…we wont give them to crowded shelters or pet stores…so if it turns out that way I will post again…if you know anyone in the Columbus, Ohio area that would love a rabbit as much as I love mine, please let me know.  Thanks

      I know absolutely nothing about pregnant bunnies, but there is a great HRS chapter in Columbus.  You can find out about them here columbusrabbit.org/

      Contact them, I am sure that there are people there who can advise you.  Good Luck!

      yetmance – welcome to binkybunny.

      I would make an appointment with a rabbit savvy vet for sure. Here is a website with some vets in your area that are educated  about rabbit care. http://www.columbusrabbit.org/vet.html

      rabbits gestation is a mere 31 days and they can quickly become pregnant after delivering. I also have never had a pregnant bunny – but unless it’s a large litter, sometimes the weight gain isn’t even enough to notice she’s pregnant.

      All bunnies need to be spayed or neutered, they live longer and much healthier lives. It is especially important to have female bunnies spayed – since the uterine cancer rate in unspayed females is close to 85% Depending on how far along she may be, vets are sometimes able to spay and terminate the pregnancy at the same time.

      I have learned that bunnies can become pregnant at the drop of a hat!!!!!  Jessica was pregnant and her babies all died after less than 2 weeks of birth.  I had no idea she was pregnant.  The only behavioral change I noticed (really looking back on it), she started to spend more time in her cage.  Specifically the box that she eventually gave birth into.  She did become slightly chunky but not a major chunky monkey.  

      The weekend she gave birth, she pulled out an excessive amount of fur to build a nest.  She also spent more time w/ Oreo our other female bunny whilst pregnant.

      Hope this helps.  My vet said it can be difficult to tell, unless your a vet.  Bunnies can masquerade many health issues.

      I’m still waiting for the funds to get our therepy male (Jessica’s baby daddy) fixed.  Oreo, our female bun on site, is spayed and she regularly gets sexually assaulted by Trigger.  She tends to handle herself well…she’s significantly bigger than Trigs.  Please try to get them fixed ASAP.  Unfortunately I have learned that its the best way to keep girls healthy and boys less…."active".
