View Full Version : New bunny in need of a lot of care

have just adopted my 4th bunny today. His name is Bugs and he is in such a state he is a long haired lion boy 18 months old. He is very underweight, he has had 4 teeth taken out, his fur is matted beyond belief on his tummy. I have booked him into the vets tommorrow. Would you recomend that I gently cut the matted fur away when he has settled in his new home????

If I was in the same situation, I'd ask the vet to remove the matted fur, to ensure you don't catch his skin. I tried doing this with my cat years ago and ended up with a hefty vet bill!

Good luck with Bugs, he sounds lovely :)

Yes I was thinking along the same lines, I'll post some pics of before and after of the little chap. He has such a lovely temperment he goes to sleep when to rub his head and loves cuddles, poor little thing.
Thanks xxxx

Aww, I wish mine would sleep when you run their head, they're more likely to run off and stamp their feet at me :lol:
