Just went into P@H and fell in love with a boy bunny with no front teeth- i got him home he will be a house bunny (apparently he was before too) hes eating hay etc and pellets no problem but ''gumming'' a cardboard box and making it soggy- he is such a cutie!!!

i will do soon - dont have any way of gettin them on the computer. He is a butterfly harlequin - white ginger and black speckled - he looks like a mini/dwarf lop but his ears are a little shorter- still floppy though- he was a house rabbit but had a disorder where his teeth grew too quick so the vet pulled them out.......

what do i need to bear in mind about him having no teeth? he is munching on the pellets etc so no problems there- his poo looks ok too

No ones going to shout. You saw a bun in need and thought you should help. It's not the same as normal buns that you buy so relax, you did good :wave:. Good luck with him and I'm sure he will be fine. Just treat him normally and keep an eye on if he is struggling with any food.

My gummy boy managed pellets and 1 pence sized veg and i cut up his hay slightly smaller as he struggled with longer bits!
They manage really well, cant wait to see pics :wave:

I have a gummy bunny as well, the only thing I need to do is, either grate her veg or slice it finely.
Well done for saving him.

thankyou- the O/H is particularly happy because his xbox is safe from chewing.....

he is in a dog cage the door is open but he has not ventured out yet- he is eating hay and pellets and has washed too

Please don't feel obliged to apologise for adopting a bun needing a home. At PAH we get lots of buns in needing good homes.
He looks lovely :) x

A mini lop would be tiny about ? 1 - 1.5 kg (not sure of exact definition)
A dwarf lop would be more like 2 - 3 kg (all mine fit into that category).

Just going by the shape of his head I'm guessing he's a dwarf ... an absolutely georgous one at that ... but then I'm a little biased as he's very much my kind of bunny :love::love::love: (I suspect I would have very much fallen for him if I'd seen him to :oops:)
