    I would get them booked in at the vet ASAP for neutering, before they start to fight and the bond breaks down irretrievably. They are old enough, even if one is female (usually done at 6 months,...

    Wooden hutches are best painted inside and out to make them more weatherproof and easier to clean / dry. You can also use vinyl flooring and plastic trays on the floors. I've not had one blow over in...

    Two of my dogs have decided that it's their bed at night. I may be allowed a bit of room at the top end, but I'm not allowed to stretch out any more. My dogs are somewhat bigger than yours......

    The hutch would only be suitable as a nest box within a much bigger area. Rabbits need space to run around in at all times (they are more active at dusk & dawn), and in winter it helps to keep them...

    You need to provide a balanced diet - mainly hay or grass, veggies, then maybe a few pellets....

    If EC is a potential suspect, I would treat for that anyway, while waiting for other results (28 days of Panacur & NSAID eg meloxicam) unless your vet says there are good reasons not to. It's a...

    Has he had his teeth checked? Poor appetite can be tooth related. Pellets are often first to go as they are harder to chew. Even if it isn't the primary cause of his current issues, the teeth are...

    Lettuce is OK to give to rabbits, but I would feed other veg that also has more fibre in it, as that is better for wearing the teeth down and for gut health. Don't forget they also need loads of...

    If the vet rules out trauma as the cause of the symptoms, the EC parasite could be considered and treated for (Panacur daily for 28 days & an NSAID to relieve the neurological effects) as it can...

    I would still get him examined. Rabbits go downhill very quickly, and shivering is not normal.
    Has the cause of the weight loss been determined?

    I would get him checked over by a vet tomorrow, or preferably ring an emergency vet tonight for advice - he shouldn't be shivering.

    Is he eating & pooing OK?
    Does he have space to move around to...

    I did say he had a wide definition of what may be edible. He's fine - caught him in time before he did any noticeable damage to himself (but not to my sanity). He does tend to end up being muzzled...

    No labrador AFAIK. Sometimes I wonder how much 'dog' genes he has - but that's 'normal' for salukis and he's just pushing the Saluki boundaries to the limit (he tried to eat a lightbulb this week)....

    This. Separate now, before there is a serious injury, and the risk that they may never successfully live together. Neuter (at 6 months old if both are female), then rebond.

    No harm in asking the vet to check properly while he's under a GA - then you definitely know for future reference.

    So sorry he didn't make it. You did amazingly well to bring him round on the first morning, and you had some extra time together. May he rest, pain-free and in peace now.
    Hugs to you.
