  • Reply To: Bonding journal of Owen and Molly - Ellie from The Netherlands 05/24/2022 08:01 PM
    They had a 2 hour session yesterday, we stopped it when they were both too tired to move a muscle. It’s very intense for everyone involved. Owen is slowly learning to mount the proper way, so it’s going better. Molly actually sits still during that type of mounting. The only problem is that he doesn’t…

    Unless your rabbit is a larger breed, the best litterboxes for rabbits have an entry cutout, such as this one sold in the BinkyBunny store: Litter Box – EASY ENTRY (2 Sizes) Although we don’t have this particular brand of litterbox, we have two that are virtually idential in design, which were previously sold by…

    We were considering everything being hormonal but it doesn’t seem like her usual marking especially not the thick urine at times. She did mark the bed when she started to grow up but not every 20 minutes. It seems like she isn’t holding her pee because sometimes it’s a lot of urine while she’s eating…

    ^ This is very good advice. I’d think about the rabbit savvy vet too. Maybe you can ask for a telephone consult with the rabbit savvy vet, so they can assess her medical situation. I know that a spay is very scary,  especially if your bunny already has medical issues. Hell, even we were very…
  • Reply To: Peeing and pooping everywhere - DanaNM 05/24/2022 02:28 PM
    Honestly, since she is unspayed, they really can’t detect an infection, and her sludge is not severe, my bet is that this is hormonal. All the symptoms (marking, mounting, no signs of pain or discomfort) line up with an unspayed bun just acting normally. Since you mentioned your vet is not truly that rabbit savvy…
  • BZOO also reminded me that you can also get pure timothy pellets that are made for horses. They can be helpful for buns that are having issues with hay but will eat pellets. Of course they don’t help with the teeth but they can at least help with digestion.
  • I found the paper mat instructions! This was originally in the “Carrot Tribune”, the newsletter for Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter, written by Jean Silva. You’ll notice she mentions the LA Times but any newspaper works! I can see if I can get the pictures if this is still confusing. Make a Mat Make a mat…
  • Reply To: should I screen for EC in Bun Jovi? - DanaNM 05/24/2022 02:17 PM
    Thank you! yes I think it most likely probably is arthritis and/or spondylosis. I might get another low-sided litter box to see if that will be helpful for him. I used to have one for Bertha and it helped her a lot. <3 I had a vivid dream the other night that he was jumping…
  • Reply To: should I screen for EC in Bun Jovi? - GlennTheLionhead 05/24/2022 10:44 AM
    Poor Bun jovi. His symptoms sound quite similar to Bellas when she had arthritis (spondylosis).  So just to point out some similarities that might help you. She also experienced urinary incontinence that was from not being able  to squat properly and also not wanting to jump into the litter box.. So I wonder if its…

    Just to add, I’ve moved mine around often and they have always been fine. Glenn is particularly well travelled and we have lived in 3 different housed together and in his first 3 years we lived very far from family so we would also travel him to visit mine and my partners parents every summer…
  • Reply To: Flea Treatment - LBJ10 05/24/2022 02:17 AM
    That’s a good point. Fleas can become immune to the main ingredient. Which formula of Advantage was this? They discontinued the original. But there is also Advantage II and Advantage Multi.
  • Reply To: He won’t eat hay - LBJ10 05/24/2022 02:12 AM
    Yeah, the drinking is suspicious. I’m wondering how thoroughly they looked at his teeth.
  • Reply To: Moving! - LBJ10 05/24/2022 02:09 AM
    You would be surprised at how adaptable they are. As long as they have all of their stuff and the setup is kept pretty much the same, most bunnies do just fine with the move. Sometimes they take a little bit to want to explore. I like the idea of not washing anything. That way…

    Hey Dana – thanks so much for responding!  I will look for baby keys – I forgot I also have baby stack-a-cups I can use. Do you mind clarifying what you mean by paper mat?  You said to weave the strips together… are you saying to cut the newspaper in 2 inches wide and then…
  • Reply To: Moving! - Oliver The Bunny! 05/24/2022 01:03 AM
    Thanks for your advice! I get hay from chewy so I don’t have to worry about getting a different hay, we also are only moving 20 minutes away!
  • Reply To: Peeing and pooping everywhere - MissyBun 05/24/2022 12:04 AM
    They gave us metacam but it tends to upset her tummy and makes her eat less so we usually give it to her for 3-4 days max. She didn’t seem to be in pain at all, if anything she was more energetic than usual. The vet told us to watch if she seems off. If…
  • If she eats the pellets well, can you feed more?  Sherwood has a pellet that is just Timothy (with vit/min). It’s made for buns who aren’t big hay eaters.
  • Reply To: Glenn and Nellie - GlennTheLionhead 05/23/2022 10:01 PM
    You have both made me feel better about it, thanks. Everyone has calmed down from the panic now… Although it seems like the bunnies were un-phased anyway so it’s really just me that needed to calm down lol, they have just gone about their day as normal since, so there doesn’t appear to be any…
