  • Reply To: Runny nose – normal or concerning? - Wick & Fable 10/22/2021 04:12 AM
    Right now vigilant monitoring is a fine approach since frequency of discharge seems low. At the same time, if it is a URI (a common cause of nasal discharge, but not the only one), the sooner antibiotic treatment is started, typically the easier treatment is (since the infection has less time to multiply). Colored discharge…
  • Runny nose – normal or concerning? - Salem Fluffle 10/22/2021 02:58 AM
    Hi guys, I have two 9 1/2 year old buns and I adopted two babies last week (4 1/2 months and 7 months). I’m quarantining my new kids in my guest room which is in it’s own wing of my house. I live in Michigan and there is no reported RHDV2 here yet but we’ve…
  • Awesome update from this evening ☺️ Bonding session two has been very productive. We started them both in the neutral space, with a big heap of hay and veggies. There was shared eating and only a few grunts, and then multiple cuddle/grooming sessions. After two hours, I opened up their reorganized shared kitchen space, offering…

    I am not normally an anxious human but I was extremely nervous sending in my little girl to get spayed. She was just shy of one year and she weighed around 3.5-4 lbs. I remember being so scared that I started to sob as soon as I walked out of the office after dropping her…

    Some bunnies are very “no-touchie”. It doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with them… it’s just the way they are. These bunnies often show affection in other ways. For instance, it sounds like she is comfortable enough around you to allow herself to sleep deeply. So at least you know she trusts you! To be…

    For Zelda’s health: we got them both seen yesterday and the vet didn’t see anything obvious. No injuries, no spurs in teeth, BAR, healthy weight.. they think GI inflammation is why Zelda won’t eat her veggies but I don’t think so.. it’s been weeks if not nearly a month she hasn’t touched them and she…
  • shy bunny?? - ktie 10/22/2021 12:31 AM
    hello! i’ve had my bunny mochi for almost three years (i adopted her from a shelter) and still has not shown any signs of affection, she only likes being petted when she is sleeping/close to sleeping. she eats well (and gets snacks), sleeps well, grooms herself, and gets to go outside often so nothing seems…
  • The only advice I can offer is, unless you know the person taking them, do not give them away for free. If fixed, charge what a shelter or rescue group would charge. If not, deduct from that what it would cost the new people to do so. A free pet is likely to end up…
  • Thank you for the response. Yes, headwar in as they both put their heads together and just stay there waiting for someone to do something.  I have them in separate rooms as Buns is free roam but I do have a gate across the door so there is some contact when I am able to…
  • First contact, finally! - BZOO 10/21/2021 11:17 PM
    Walter and Boo had their first official date in the tub. Absolutely no aggression, Walter did a lot of humping, mostly her head. She just sat there.  I tried to break it up a few times, but then figured since she didn’t seem mad, I’d let them work it out.  Was that ok? About how…
  • Reply To: Advice Needed – Headwars and Bunny Flops - Wick & Fable 10/21/2021 10:55 PM
    For headwars (which I assume is both of them putting their head down and waiting for the other to groom), I think a case-by-case of petting them both and also letting it play out is valuable. If letting it play out every time is leading to big fights, then petting it for now is fine.…
  • I am attempting to bond my boy (Buns, 1 year old, neutered July 12<sup>th</sup>) and my girl Violet (3 years, spayed at least a year ago). I adopted Violet from a rescue and we did do a bunny date and it well enough that the rescue though there was a good chance at a bond.…
  • Hey 😊 Glad to hear that it sounds like progress to you all as well. I was definitely encouraged when there were no real scuffles, and I’m planning on trying it again this evening. For now, I’m just encouraging them eating by the gate, so they’re artificially “together” and am swapping blankets, space and litter…
  • That sounds like progress and good info from the foster! And I 100% agree about providing more space but less clutter, we’ve noticed that as well with rabbits at the rescue I volunteer at. Some pairs do seem to bicker more than others, so finding out what triggers your boys will help in the future.
  • Reply To: Help! How do I stop the peeing! - DanaNM 10/21/2021 04:01 PM
    I agree 100% with Wick that things are not likely to improve until she’s bonded, but there are some things you can do in the meantime. Also how long have you had her? It can help to confine new bunnies to an x-pen for the first week or so to help them get “organized” with…
  • It sounds like your situation has changed due to an injury and starting school? And that your living situation prevents you from giving them proper exercise space?  Can you describe their housing a bit more? Even giving them a few hours access to a bunny-proofed room (or even a hallway) would be a big improvement…
  • Reply To: rabbit stomach gurgles - DanaNM 10/21/2021 03:49 PM
    It sounds like she is experiencing some gas but is probably working through it. Agree that simethicone and some tummy rubs will probably help. If she’s eating now, push lots of hay and water, no treats, fruits, or starchy veggies. Extra leafy greens that are wet from being rinsed can also help, as long as…

    We are always very appreciative of follow-up! These experiences are helpful for those following your topic, as well as though who may visit it in the future. Thank you for the update, and so happy that things are progressing! It is great that the foster was able to provide some insight/guidance. Learning about rabbit body…
  • Reply To: Help! How do I stop the peeing! - Wick & Fable 10/21/2021 02:27 PM
    I’m sorry to hear you’re having such trouble! Unfortunately, there is a chance that she will not be “litter trained” prior to bonding with your boy. It is often the case that litter-trained rabbits “lose” their litter habits when in the presence/sharing space with another rabbit. As you mention, territorial marking occurs at this point.…

    Hi, I have recently adopted a 4 year old spayed lion head. Spayed in July according to the shelter. I am in the stages of prebonding her with my boy. Shes lovely and friendly but the problem is she is weeing everywhere and I dont know how to stop her. She pees very indiscriminately, some…
