    hiya last night i introduced my rabbits. i have done lots leading up to this with bonding and neither of them have shown signs of aggression however once i put them together Theo completely attacked Baloo. they both seemed fine once they were separated apart from a bit of fur pulled out. i have just discovered a bite on Baloo and i’m not sure what to do. Baloo is eating, drinking, going to the toilet and seems fine in himself. i’ve just put sudocrem on the bite. i’m not too sure if i’m meant to call the vet or just keep an eye on him. people have been telling me to leave it and just keep an eye on him but i’ve been looking online and it all says take him to the vet asap so i figured here would be the best place to ask what to do.i don’t know if i’m just overreacting about the bite because i care about him a lot or if this is genuinely serious.

    thanks x

    Hi there,

    Oh dear, how stressful.

    Can you post a photo? And where is the bite? Depending on where it is, it might be fine, or might be good to see the vet.

    Also as an aside, what was the bonding space like? And did you do pre-bonding, etc.? It’s unusual for buns to flat out attack each other with that kind of intensity on the first introduction, so it will be good to re-assess your bonding strategy if you plan to keep trying.
