Rabbits/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I can answer questions around the welfare of pet rabbits, basic health queries including gut stasis, diet worries and the proper welfare standards around housing rabbits (i.e. no wire floors, no small cages and they should be kept in properly bonded de-sexed pairs in very large enclosures). I cannot answer showing questions nor complex breeding issues as I do not agree with either, seeing the other end of the story in the world of rabbit rescue. If your rabbit is in distress, has any blood, isn't moving, has breathing issues or isn't eating, my answer will be, go to the vet!

Experience in the area

I have two 10 year old rescue rabbits and have volunteered in rabbit rescue.


I belong to the RWAF (Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund) and have volunteered for a rabbit rescue.


I have no formal education on this subject, however read everything I can to keep up to date with current welfare standards and health problems. Both my rabbits have sensitive guts and constantly keep me on my toes.

2017-02-08 Maybe a false pregnancy in a doe that just kidded 8 weeks ago?:

Hi April    At 8 weeks they can be weaned from her and should be eating other food now. This is likely hormonal overdrive and a phantom pregnancy, but as the males in her litter mature, they could very

2016-11-24 Rabbit and african hedgehog.:

Hi Bartek    That's an odd one! The short answer is no, they can't co-habit. At all.    Together for a quick photo whilst fully supervised and then returned to their own safe spaces, that's ok. But living

Hi Leslie    That poor bunbun! It can be extra tricky with wildlife.     You could try treating with Panacur Rabbit, this is a wormer for rabbits and one particular parasite, Encephalitozoon cuniculi (or
