    You could insulate the inside of the shed (eg polystyrene sheets from Wickes between the battens) and then cover with large sheets of thin exterior ply. That could then be painted to protect it and...

    Me too. I use the credit card and sort it out later. If things are really desperate, PTS is always an option - affordable, relieves suffering, etc - but I've never come to that yet.

    I would contact a vet ASAP. Rabbits are prey animals and hide their symptoms. A rabbit that seems ill is in need of veterinary attention as a matter of urgency. Please, at least phone and ask for...

    I've never found a way to stop a rabbit digging - it's what they do. Some do seem to be more determined diggers than others, though, so it's more a case of managing it.

    I would put a digging box...

    Some random thoughts-
    - try getting a fresh batch of hay to see it that makes a difference, as they are both off the current hay.
    - bramble leaves are good. There may be some dandelions lurking...

    You seem to be doing all the right things. If she's eating eg brambles, just keep feeding her those. There should be fresh ones available if you go foraging (with gloves on, small scissors and a...

    In the UK, the 3 rabbit viruses are a significant risk to all unvaccinated rabbits. Close proximity to known wild rabbit population is a risk.

    Assuming they are both neutered, it's worth a go. If they do fight, just call it quits and they end up as singletons again. Sometimes they mellow with age.
    I would try somewhere totally neutral -...

    As Jane says, you may need an x-ray to confirm there really is no break or spinal involvement with the injury. Leaving it for too long will make it more difficult to obtain the best outcome. I...

    I would suggest getting a puppy pen higher than 61cm as most rabbits would be able to clear that, and you need to be careful if there is something nearby to climb on. 3' / 90cm is a fairly safe...

    Hay would be more insulating than shredded paper. I would leave them with the heat pad in the bed area. It's up to them if they want to use it, and they have each other to snuggle up with.
