    Unsure what you mean by “athletic” (I think all rabbits are quite athletic, but personalities may differ in how they express that energy), but the ears do look a bit bigger for a dwarf. She could be a mix or a false — My dwarf was .5kg at about 16 weeks, but growth trajectories can…
  • Is she a false Netherland Dwarf? - Dilaratan 01/23/2021 03:50 PM
    Hi everyone! We have a new member in our house. She came home when she was 8 weeks old and bow she is about to be 10 weeks old. She seems longer and more athletic compared to real dwarf bunnies. She is 0.5 kg right now. I love her soo much, it doesnt matter she…
  • There arent really transition steps  but I recommend binder clipping something to the outside of the pen so she cant see outside it if she starts bar rattling. That is usually a rabbits sleeping time so hopefully not too disruptive for her schedule. As for spaying, is there a local rabbit rescue in your area?…
  • Transitioning from free roam to X-pen. - Tofu the bunny 01/23/2021 10:57 AM
    Hi there, I adopted my 8 month off rabbit Tofu about 2 months ago. Due to local lockdown restrictions I have been working from home for the past 3 weeks. During these free weeks Tofu has been a free roaming rabbit as I have constantly been in to watch her and create bunny proofing measures.…
  • Reply To: New bunny mom - Bam 01/23/2021 10:56 AM
    Congratulations on your new buns! They’re adorable! Most rabbits (there are exceptions)  prefer living with another rabbit, especially rabbits that grow up with another rabbit. Rabbits are however a highly territorial species (an adaptation that most likely is due to the fact that wild rabbits spend a lot of time and energy on making their…
  • New bunny mom - BrittneyM 01/23/2021 10:36 AM
    Hi everyone! I am recently a new bunny mom! My boyfriend and I adopted two baby bunnies from my next door neighbor. We originally wanted one but we didn’t want to separate them so we kept both. Now I’m reading that could become dangerous as they get older since they could fight. We are unsure…

    Oh well haha my bunny is very cuddly and sociable. So she always goes wherever I go. And she wants to be me with most of the time. Because of that I’m scared to leave her alone when I go to work, I don’t want her to get angry or something. Soon I have to…
  • Reply To: Rabbit weight - Vicky 01/23/2021 08:47 AM
    Ahhh okay and what do you think about unlimited pellets? My vet said I can give her now unlimited pellets but I give her when she “asks” She always sits in front of the cage when she wants them and waits haha
  • Reply To: Bun piddling? - Wick 01/23/2021 06:29 AM
    I would talk to your vet but I think that is seems like a valid route. My notes say the blood test was a treponema titer, but PCR stuck out in my mind so unsure if those are synonymous or we talked about doing a PCR, but didn’t do it if it’s a different test.…

    Maybe after this round of shots is finished, even if she’s still showing slight positive,  we’ll take a break from treatment? I hate stressing her out every week especially since she’s doesn’t handle stress very well.
  • Reply To: Bun piddling? - furballlover 01/23/2021 05:58 AM
    The bumps are gone but she still gets eye crusties. The eye crusties are mostly gone at this point. I didn’t know that about the delay in the pcr test. Her blood work in December (5months of treatment) showed fully contagious but her blood work from this month showed the almost negative level. I want…
  • 8 month long ear infection-please help - Erinbauer91 01/23/2021 04:33 AM
    Hi. I have a male 8/9 year old lop mix rabbit named Mocha.  I adopted him at 2/3 years old and since then he has suffered from ear infections 2-4 times a year. typically we do a course of antibiotics and he’s good to go after 14-30 days. currently he has had an ear infection…

    Depends on the mite. Advantage II is ineffective against fur mites. Ivermectin is another option too.
  • Reply To: Rabbit weight - LBJ10 01/23/2021 02:33 AM
    Keep in mind that young rabbits tend to be a bit on the lean side. They fill out once they are done growing size-wise. Wick provided an excellent diagram. I agree though. As long as your bunny is receiving an age-appropriate diet, you shouldn’t have to worry.
  • Reply To: Rabbit Health and Dandruff?? - DanaNM 01/23/2021 02:32 AM
    I was under the impression that Advantage only worked on fleas (not mites or ticks)?  
  • Reply To: Bunny schedule - LBJ10 01/23/2021 02:30 AM
    How much time you spend with them depends on the rabbit too. I’m largely ignored until the evening and then it’s “pet me” and “give me food”. That’s really all I’m good for. LOL
  • Reply To: Rabbit Health and Dandruff?? - LBJ10 01/23/2021 02:24 AM
    I agree, you can try Advantage just to be sure. Otherwise, it may just be… dandruff.
  • Reply To: Baby bunny having tiny poops - LBJ10 01/23/2021 02:21 AM
    Small poops usually mean a lack of hay or dehydration.
  • Most vets don’t do x-rays or blood work (unless there is a reason to, ex: age). Such tests are generally not cost effective for young, seemingly healthy rabbits. If there is an adverse event in a young rabbit, it’s usually not something blood work could detect anyway. As Wick said, it’s usually a congenital defect.…
  • Reply To: Safe detergent for rabbits - LBJ10 01/23/2021 02:06 AM
    I’d say any unscented detergent is probably fine.
