    Has she had xrays to rule out a piece of willow twig where it shouldn't be?

    The willow in itself shouldn't be an issue. I presume it's not treated with anything (doesn't need to be). I've never...

    Getting her vaccinated sooner would probably be a good idea. Vaccines take a couple of weeks to become fully effective anyway, so she would be better protected if she's done now - assuming she's not...

    Just seen the pics - you have a summerhouse / conservatory rather than a traditional greenhouse. You will still get temperature fluctuations. Rabbits are OK in the cold if they have adequate shelter,...

    Fipronil and imidacloprid are the two alternatives for regular (non-vet prescribed) spot-on flea treatment. Different brands could use either - so it's always worth checking before you buy. Even the...

    VetUK also does spot-on cat treatments and house sprays. I would initially treat the cat with a monthly spot-on treatment on the back of its neck, and regularly vacuum. Also get a nit comb (standard...

    A lot of rabbits don't like to be handled, but it does make a huge difference if you are able to pick them up. They may not 'like' it, but they do get used to it, which makes it so much easier on you...

    One of my dogs used to get harvest mites on his underneath (where the fur is thinnest) when the grass is long (ie around now). They are too tiny to see but cause a lot of irritation. Easily fixed...

    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...

    Hi & welcome.

    Is it just on one eye? Or both sides?
    Is it wet, or crusty?
