|2 does or a doe and a buck - which to get?!! Advice needed please! - Lindsay
We have been looking to get a couple or mini lop bunnies in the New Year. We want to get them from
young so that we can handle them and get them used to us and us used to them straight away....but,
I'm confused about the best pairing.
I've read that the best pairing is a doe and a buck - but I'm worried that a buck may possibly
continue to spray and mark his territory even after being neutered - can this happen?
So, I thought maybe we'd get a couple of does - but get them spayed so that they stay as healthy as
poss and they won't get as territorial maybe...but there are no certainties. And I've heard that
they can be more grumpy when they get older?
If I do get 2 does - should they be from the same litter, or bonded does of a similar age from a
So......what do you think? I really need some advice as I'm rather confused!!!!
|Advice on adding to our guinea pigs, please!! - Ceri Dibble
We have a very happy and successful group of female guinea pigs.
Consisting of mum; Mo, daughter from 1st litter; Rogue and daughter from 2nd litter; Pootle. They
have lived happily together for about 2.5 years now, but I think I'd like to rescue another female
to go in with them. :hugs: Does anyone know if this is likely to be successful? I wouldn't want
to try it and mess the poor little piggy around. I'd hate to offer a home and then not be able to
follow it through. I guess I'm just wondering if my 3 will take to another female or if it's just
doomed. My 3 aren't neutered, by the way. :huh:
Here's a pic of our gorgeous girls: Rogue - black, Pootle - blonde &
|Vibes for Friday please! - Bernie
Well I have bitten the bullet and booked Rascal in to have her spay on Friday. I have started
worrying already :s I should be used to this by now lol, this will be my sixth in 2 years and I
still get that horrible feeling :bye:
Also my special man Bluey is going in to be checked over as he is getting bald patches on his back
and his fur seems to be thining all over :huh: I don't think it is mites because he doesn't have any
flakey skin but I want to get it checked out just to make sure nothing sinister is hiding :pray:
|Help identifying breed of rabbit please - Aquarian
I am a new member of this forum, and I recently got a pet rabbit, whom I have named Bambi. He is
about 4 months old, and is white with brown spots, eye rings, dark brown tail and rump area and a
patch of color on one of his ears. I think he maybe a mismarked spotted Rex, but I am not sure.
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

|vibes for Sherpa please - Bunnygirl
Took sherpa in today, he looked really painful when he was eating this morning.
good thing i did, he has lost another 200g in weight and is the lightest he has ever been.
his upper back molars are completly growing the wrong way now and were digging into his cheek.
because his incisors are growing funny its affecting his molars and they are all growing haphazardly
anyway i had to put him under GA and sort his teeth out. the vet was shocked that he was still
attempting to eat despite the teeth deformaties.
anyway his recovery wasnt so good, he thrashed around for hours, and he was getting stressed and
worked up and his chest was all crackly and he was having trouble breathing. i didnt leave his side
and helped him however i could.
he is a bit better now, and can sit up straight, but is still wobbly when he moves. he hasnt eaten
yet and no poops :(
please vibes for Sherpa. that will be the last GA i ever put him through, the recovery was too...
|More vibes please - WeeBarraxO
had to take Spike back to the vets, the superficial flesh wound he had is anything but :(, he has a
flap of skin .. which now isn't bothering him atall .. because the flesh is actually dying :(, I
noticed last night that he didn't even notice if I touched it .. wether as before he would flinch
when I was cleaning it, and it is freezing, so there must be no blood supply, so took him first
thing this morning, they are putting him under GA to give it a good proper clean, and to see if they
can save the skin, if they can they will staple it, but if not they are going to cut it off :(, so
lots of vibes for the baby boy :(, they were umm'ing & ahh'ing wether to put him under as he is so
young (only 13 weeks) but they feel if they don't just now it may start to cause problems for him
:(, so thats all the neuter money gone :angry:, I've to phone at 12 and see how he got on :pray:

|Jesse ... advice please - Jules
Jesse has settled well into her new Duna Fun but she's decided she doesn't want to sleep in her
igloo now! She happily slept in it before!
So she's now in the corner of the base, near the water bottle with no bedding, just sawdust. Should
I move her bedding or just leave her to decide where she's most comfortable? All my previous hammies
have chosen their own nest spot and dragged their bedding to where they want to be. I just feel a
bit sorry for her cos she doesn't look snuggly! :-/
|Name suggestions please!! - Bernie
Well I was told her name was Lillie, but it soo doesn't suit her. I seem to have run out of name
ideas, so I thought I put it to you guy's :-/

|Help with Wedges please - Aimee Rose
Well the story is that my brother has a hamster and over the last week he's lost considerable body
weight, we thought it was his teeth so we clipped them...that was earlier in the week, he is now
only 83 grams, we've been giving him fattyfoods, like sunflower seeds and even boiled egg, any
suggestions on what it could be, he is going to the vets tommorow though but just thought i'd ask
you lot first.
|Advice on Mindy, please - Rio
Just wondering if anyone has any advice or information.
Yesterday, I noticed that Mindy was very wet on her bottom. Not dirty like she use to be but when I
did dry her with a tissue, it was a slight brown colour. She is still pooping normally and they are
She did seem to be straining a little to wee.
Today I've checked her over and discovered a very small spot/abscess on her opening. She let me
touch it and she didn't flinch so I don't think it's hurting her. I've cut away the fur and put a
little vaseline on as she looked a little sore.
She's still eating and drinking and being her normal self although she does seem to spend more time
lying down in her cage. But then Mindy has never been a very active rabbit. When she is in the
living room, she's her normal self.
Now I know an abscess near their opening, can be a sign of cancer and Mindy is not spayed as the
vets I have been to, have not be comfortable putting her under as she does have a very slight...
