RE: Aspen??? - manic_muncher 10/30/2014 10:52 AM
Oh and, I use Aspen in my litterboxes. Love the smell of it, the buns do nibble at it occasionally, but not too much....
RE: Senior Rabbit post-surgery...Melanoma? - jarn 10/30/2014 9:39 AM
Thanks Sarita. We are wetting her greens some now just to be on the safe side. She does seem to be recovering well, which is a HUGE relief. Nikolai had a fatty tissue lump next to his eye that was benign (we did a needle biopsy), but this looked...different. That doesn't mean it's not benign though. Fingers crossed...
Hay storage & allergies - rayray 10/30/2014 9:35 AM
I'm hoping someone on here can help. I have asthma and recently found out I have a hay allergy.  Never in a million years would I give up my Ziggy!!  Is there anyway to minimize the hays dust & flyaways? I've heard people mention the cubes, but do they have the same nutritional value as the regular hay? ...
RE: Senior Rabbit post-surgery...Melanoma? - Sarita 10/30/2014 9:28 AM
I wouldn't worry too much about not drinking so much - maybe just wet her greens before you give them to her. It sounds like she is recovering well, so that's great. I cannot speak to her particular bump but I've had many elder rabbits who have developed fatty tissue lumps in various areas but seems like moreso in the c...
Senior Rabbit post-surgery...Melanoma? - jarn 10/30/2014 9:06 AM
Hi all! I think I used to be a member of this forum but I can't remember my user name, so I re-registered.  I've had several bunnies throughout the years, and right now have one - Eco.  Her bonded partner, Nikolai, died in May due to complications from head tilt (we couldn't get him eating on his own again afte...
RE: Behavior as they age? - Sarita 10/30/2014 8:59 AM
I've never had a "cuddly" rabbit but I've had some rabbits that were very affectionate in their own way. Rabbits do tend to be more independent in my opinion....they like pets but on their terms. I have a 5 year old Netherland Dwarf who is affectionate but not cuddly - I'm not sure about cuddling a 1.5 pound rabbit anyw...
Behavior as they age? - Philomena 10/30/2014 8:18 AM
Philomena is a spayed 8 month old rabbit and I was wondering how her behavior might change as she gets older. I'm also wondering at what age they tend to stop growing.  Philomena doesn't like pets even though she nudges my hands and feet. She will let me pet her every once in a while but I can't help but to think that...
RE: E. cuniculi - BoBoze 10/30/2014 8:16 AM
Update : Bo seems to be doing about the same, still rolling majority of the time after we put him down from giving him his meds :/ but all in all he is one happy bunny! the panacur knocks him right out for a nap every night though. One problem we are currently facing is he seems less interested in drinking and I am starting...
RE: Helping bun gain weight - Emiline 10/30/2014 8:08 AM
I had thought 4.5Lb was more of an ideal weight, my bad. I could have sworn that at one of her normal vet checkups my vet said she weighed 4.2Lbs and my vet said that was a little on the light side. I can ask her what weight she thinks my rabbit should be, maybe I didn't hear her correctly. Thanks for letting me know though...
RE: How is Carefresh Hay? - Maylol 10/30/2014 7:41 AM
Sorry, I didn't get online last few days. Thanks for all advices! Flopsie, 1) I used to give him 2 handful (with very small hand ) of pellets every morning and 2 handful in the evening. So it fills half of the shallow food bowl each time (about 4inch diamiter). But recently I only give one handful at night to "force" ...
RE: OCTOBER CHAT! - JackRabbit 10/30/2014 7:33 AM
AH -- better yet, offer melted ice cream in a glass...
RE: OCTOBER CHAT! - JackRabbit 10/30/2014 7:31 AM
AH - if hubby eats cereal with milk, drinks milk, or drinks beer, start serving them room temp or warmer. That should get your fridge....
RE: Flying internationally with bunny - Sarita 10/30/2014 7:01 AM
I am no expert on this but I imagine that you would have the same quarantine even if you change planes in another EU country other than the UK since your first flight originated from Australia. You are going to have to have a vet certificate to bring your rabbit into any country which will show your rabbit came in from Aus...
RE: Christmas travelling? - Sindriona 10/30/2014 6:40 AM
I haven't heard of the relaxant you are talking about but I think he could do fine with the drive. You can talk with your vet about the relaxant and see what they say about that. I would just make sure they are comfortable during the drive....
RE: What type of pellet do you use? - Sindriona 10/30/2014 6:28 AM
I use Kaytee Alfalfa free pellets. I have used most of the OXbow pellets when it comes to food. I use carefresh with hay on top as bedding in the litter boxes....
RE: OCTOBER CHAT! - Sindriona 10/30/2014 6:21 AM
Manic I am glad your bunny is okay now. I totally can understand you needed a break from having an extra person living with you. My inlaws came and just stayed 2 and half days with us and I was happy when they left. I hope your sister is doing better too. LBJ10 I hope the eagle starts to do better. You must really care f...
RE: What type of pellet do you use? - its_just_me_guys 10/30/2014 5:47 AM
Thanks, folks! I just came from Walmart, where EVERY SINGLE rabbit food formulation they had listed alfalfa as the main ingredient (one of them also had rice in it). So obviously I didn't pick any of those up. I had gotten the idea to use food as litter box substrate from another site, but I really think it's going to be co...
RE: Bun on back - AndHenry 10/30/2014 5:26 AM
I must be the worst bunny mum ever, ha ha ha! I never worry about Henry - one time he did a flop on the end of the bed and fell off, it was SO funny, it took me what seemed like forever to control my laughter to check on him, only for him to leave the room in embarrassment. Lol! Honestly, once you get to know your bunny y...
RE: The Perfect Litter? - LittlePuffyTail 10/30/2014 4:42 AM
After trying several different kinds, I'm happiest with Yesterday's News. I think it's really the best thing. A bit pricey but if used in a thin layer (just enough to absorb the pee) and topped with hay, it doesn't use up too much litter and is great at keeping odours away....
RE: Spots of Urine - LittlePuffyTail 10/30/2014 4:36 AM
Any new behavior is a cause to be concerned in bunnies. Spotting is a sign of a UTI or bladder infection. The only way to diagnose for sure is to have a rabbit savvy vet examine him....
