Ok, so after our terrifying ordeal of the UTI and bladder infection, that comes along with an oral antibiotic to be given twice a day, a pill to be given twice a day, bunny ibuprofren, and a lotion to be put on her bum area twice a day, my beloved little girl who has NEVER bite before is a BITER!!! For the past few nights, I've given her the night's doses of medicine and my normally snuggly bunny cuddled down with me on the couch to watch Law and Order (we are addicted to that show, repeats and all) and for the past 3 nights, I've been bitten. Nothing provoked her, she just sniffed me and bit my upper arm, my forearm and last night, my chest (thank god for padded bras!!!). I though maybe I still smelled like the medicine the first night, so I washed my hands for the past two nights before playing with her and she still bit.
Is she mad at me or maybe still not feeling well? I WANT MY SNUGGLE BUG BACK!
If she continues to bite even with settling down and the treat trick. You might need to wear gloves when you think she might bite just so you won't pull away, otherwise, she may quickly learn that biting gets you to move away. Of course you won't have to wear gloves all the time, only during the times she seems to get nippy to retrain her that biting won't work.
