    Rabbit Problem

    Not a very pleasant subject, but Mum has a roabbit which keeps having a problem with its poo.

    Mum describes it as she keeps getting a pattacake on her bottom, as though she does a sloppy poo, and then everything just sticks.

    What may be causing this?

    Over feeding of grass or vegetables, get it checked out at the vets!

    I agree, too much grass, veggies, fruits, anything of the sort can cause diareah. However being sick can cause it too.

    She isn't fed veggies and fruits, just regular 'factory' food and hay.

    She is otherwise seemingly healthy too.

    It might be a reaction to the "food" she is getting. It may not mix well with her system. Maybe try a differed type of feed and see if that works?

    She has had the same food all her life. Petstore lady suggests not to change food ever.

    Problem is still there, and in the current warm weather I am a little worried about flies etc.

    Just cause she's had one type of food all her life doesn't mean you can't change it o.O. if it's still an on going problem then you may just need to try it. Did you buy her from a pet store?

    Also does this only seem to happen when it starts getting "hot"? She may not beable to handle the heat and needs to be indoors where it's cool. Alot of animals can get diareah in the summer because of the heat.

    Yeah she came from a store.

    Its not a heat problem, this happens year round.

    She does live indoors

    Hmm.. never did like buying from a pet store. My only sudjestion is slowly change her feed and see if that works, she may be too low on neutriance or have too much. If not my only other sudjestion would be take her to the vet. I had a bunny with a diareah problem, changed their food one day cause I didn't find their origional and cleared right up.
