    My vets (rabbit savvy, protocols established by Frances Harcourt-Brown) are very quick to do x-ray and blood glucose tests. If they had received a rabbit in Alfred's condition they would have done...

    I really can't see, from what you have said, that there will be a problem with the insurance paying out. If he is covered for an accident (rather then illness) straight away it doesn't matter whether...

    In my (unfortunately rather extensive) experience of blockages in rabbits' intestines, the culprit has always, when confirmed, been a hard faecal pellet. Doesn't matter how nice a diet you give them,...

    I was so right, too. She was an absolute treasure. She took no ****from anyone. She had so much spirit about her that when she was staying at the vets as the companion rabbit, the nurses could not...
