Hi all,

I went to the vet yesterday and the vet said Bertie had lost about 500g in 4 weeks :(

She's had a spay and a bond in between and is eating and pooing fine but I'm worried I'm doing something wrong :( She's not underweight, still 11 and half lbs but I'm concerned :(

it's amost certainly just due to the extra stress of bonding/spay. Feed her a bit more and if she doesn't maintain or put on weight in the next week then take her back to the vets, perhaps espcially looking at renal function & consider a 28 day course of panacur for both rabbits.

Would her ovaries and uterus weigh about 500g??? Is it just what she has lost from the spay??

I've been in tonight and made sure she's getting plenty of the pellets (Wilm has gained weight :roll: ) and she seems to be eating fine. I hope there's nothing wrong with my big baby :(
