      Osprey suggested that Jessica’s giant poops may be cecals.  I looked it up on house rabbit and yep that’s exactly what it is.  Right down to the licking her belly behavior.  It appears that these are normal…but I don’t remember ever seeing them before.  Can someone please explains the normalacy of cecals and when I need to freak out about them???

      Thanks

      don’t freak out! 🙂

      Cecals are actually very important for bunnies, since they contain a lot of nutruients and good bacterias.
      When buns eat food the first time they can’t absorb all the nutrients, so it works through the system into cecal pellets, which the buns eat since they’re very nutrient rich. Bacteria sounds BAD, but it actually isn’t. A healthy bunny has a delicate balance of baceterias in their tummies, and eating healthy cecals are very important to help keep this balance.

      In fact when buns are having tummy issues it’s not uncommon for the vet to give them cecal pellets from another healthy bun.
