    I'm surprised my dogs haven't keeled over just from going out in the garden. The smell of marijuana can be really strong at times. Not worked out where it's coming from, though, except for passing...

    I would just check anything he picks up. Round here, they use old split tennis balls to hide poison (eg slug pellets or rat poison, posssibly in meat), which inevitably is aimed at the dogs, so we...

    That's a nice piece of 'proper' furniture (ie not flat pack). Chests of drawers were really popular when I was clearing out a couple of houses - then I looked at prices at Ikea and realised why.

    Milk thistle plants are OK to feed to rabbits, so I assume the seeds will be, as long as they are not coated. You could always try to grow the plants and feed the whole plant.

    I would definitely look for a rabbit savvy vet. There's something not right if he's not eating properly, and that will lead to other issues fairly quickly. Is he losing weight? Weighing him weekly is...

    Is there any way you can leave them separated by a secure mesh divider when you can't supervise them? They will be able to snuggle next to each other but not fight. It might make life a bit easier...

    Hi & welcome.

    Is it just on one eye? Or both sides?
    Is it wet, or crusty?
    Have you tried gently combing out the fur under her eye? It will help to remove any mats or crusty bits.

    What...

    You may be able to get some hemp-based litter locally (may be sold as horse bedding in a big bale), or any of the recycled paper (unscented) ones. Or just sheets of newspaper under a layer of hay.

    It all sounds to be going well. I would leave them together all the time now. Just keep an extra eye on them for a couple of days.

    There used to be a regular supply of astrex bunnies in a local garden centre. I've not seen any since they stopped selling pets there.

    As above - I've never had any problems with Panacur, even used long term for a particularly stubborn case of EC. EC can cause a lot of long-term damage if not properly managed and treated.
