    I use a metal dog comb for all my animals (dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs). Double sided ones can be useful for fur that tends to mat, just to get it started with the wider spaced teeth, otherwise...

    You can fit a catflap or Runaround tunnel through the mesh to allow access outside of the enclosure. It may need reinforcing with a piece of external ply, and a hole cut through that, but it will...

    I would get a bigger, single tier hutch (or equivalent) and put it up on blocks (bricks or breeze blocks) and on a slabbed base, so the rabbits can also go underneath it. You can put a long external...

    I would give it a go with another boy. As long as both are neutered, I find it an easier bond. It also gives you more options.

    A local green space has put up a 'Last Post' - basically a 5' high stand-alone wooden fence post that dog owners can put their dog's name tag on as a remembrance. I've not seen that before, but I...

    I've only had one cat cremated. I was looking after him on a permanent basis for someone who needed to move on with their life. I thought they may want him back one day, so when he died, I cremated...

    I use hay bales from a local horse supply shop. Cheaper and good quality. As long as they eat it, it doesn't have to be expensive or in fancy packaging. They do like a fresh supply daily, though,...

    Unless you have been advised by a vet to limit a rabbit's calcium intake, you don't need to restrict their diet. Rabbits need a regular supply of dietary calcium as their teeth continue to grow...

    Agree with the others. 10% liquid is much cheaper, and much more accurate to dose.

    You could always run it by your vet, and ask about increasing his pain relief temporarily to see if it makes a difference.

    So tragic.
    I agree with JJ - he would be happier spending time with another rabbit (or 2?). An already neutered rabbit will be a better option for ease of bonding, which should be on neutral...

    I think it looks good.

    If it is an issue, you can easily add plastic panels round the outside at key points to provide some extra weather protection - either perspex sheeting or twinwall...

    As for rabbits and dogs - I would keep them entirely separate. My rabbits have a separately fenced off...

    The hutch just needs to be off the ground to keep damp out. Rabbits often like hiding underneath them, so raised about 30cm / 1' off the ground will be plenty of space, and a ramp would be ok,...
