So sorry for the unsavory nature of this post, but I was wondering if bun pellets are supposed to have any odor or not. My bunny Floppy, ever since I adopted her, has had somewhat pungent smelling poopies. She drinks a lot of water and the tend to be rather dark and not overly dry. Seamus', on the other hand, don't smell at all and are always fairly dry in consistency.
I've also noticed that this pungent odor seems to change a bit depending on the type of hay I give her. For instance, we ran out of timothy hay and so I switched to this back-up bag of a different brand, which smelled different, and thus produced different smelling poops from her. Same thing happened when we tried giving her orchard grass.
Just as a note, it's not like I'm sticking my nose into her litter box either! We'll be sitting 15-20 feet away at the table and suddenly I'll catch a whiff. It's like, "Op, I think Floppy just laid a batch!" We also change her litter box every other day, so it doesn't seem to have anything to do with old litter simply laying around.
Also, I've checked her anal glands and they're squeaky clean. So it can't be attributable to build-up down there, and the fur around her bum is clean. However, when I check down there and lift up her tail, her "scent" just fills the air! And yup, she has been already been spayed. Please let me know any of your experiences or insights pertaining to the matter!
Thanks!!! Appreciate it muchly =D!
