      Hi, i have Holland dwarf rabbit, 6 months. The size of their poop it been changing for a while. Its pooping but not always the same size. Sometimes it poops very, very big, sometimes it poops very small. Could it be intestinal stasis? I also bought it a new home. It’s been 4-5 days. Could it new home be a problem?

      It depends… changing poop sizes can mean they are eating different amounts of hay. If they are very very tiny or irregular in size it can mean they have intestinal problem (either gas or stasis), but bunnies poops will also change a bit in size during the day. For example, my bunnies sleep a lot during the day, and when they first wake up their poops are small because they haven’t been eating hay. But once they eat hay their poops go right back to normal. Do you notice whether your bunny eats a lot of hay?

        You answer was very helpful, thanks. My rabbit is eating hay. I feed it with meadow hay. Also since it is young, i gradually reduce it and give alfalfa. I was worried when my rabbit pooped in different sizes. I thought it were constipated. If the rabbit’s fresh poop is hard, it means its prone to constipation, right?

        Yes, you can break up the poop to see if it has chewed up hay in it. If a fresh poop is very hard and doesn’t have much hay in it, it could be a sign of some GI slowdown or too little hay consumption.

        Here is my favorite guide to bunny poop:

      Only young buns (under 5-6 months of age) should have alfalfa hay. If your bun is used to meadow hay now, its a lot better to keep her on meadow hay than to shift her over to alfalfa hay.

      Here is a guide to bunny poop with pictures:

        Yes, thanks. I read this page. I will give it by reducing the alfalfa. Thanks for helping me
