    Rup has not had full body xrays but Iain's opinion has been that he does not have underlying hip or spine problems and he hops straight and true. That said his better leg does not...

    Varies of course but I think the oldest was 9. We've had several die suddenly, probably from heart attacks, when only 2 or 3, and under anaesthetic (with Rabbit savy vet). They do seem to be more...

    We have experimented with bandages and dressings for months. The key for Rupert, and I suspect most rabbits, is that it is comfortable. If he doesn't like it it's off in seconds! At the moment he had...

    Will try! But you can bet that then there will be a problem with one of his 5 friends! He has also started to do "dead bunny" poses when he never did before which is rather unnerving to say the least.
