How much should a rabbit be drinking on a daily basis?
About two months ago we rescued two rabbits; a lionhead called Bobby, who is the more cautious and shy one, and a Polish (or maybe it's a netherland dwarf - I'm really awful when it comes to breeds!) called Dusty, who is dominant but cuddly.
Now we recently moved them both into much bigger hutches then what the woman we got them from gave us. But Dusty doesn't seem to be drinking alot. It was a hot day today but he only drank less than a quarter of his bottle. Is that normal?
When we changed his bedding this morning, we also found he'd had diarrhea during the night. That's the first time that's happened since we got them. I wanted to take him to the vet, and so did my mum, but my stepdad wouldn't let us.
Bobby, the other bun, seems to be fine. He loves his new house. But Dusty seems a bit uneasy. His heart was beating so fast when I gave him a cuddle before. Is it because we changed his hutch and he's just settling in? Should I gave him a bowl of water instead?
