    Default Floppy's strange...

    ... She was quiet a couple of days ago, not eating her pellets; only the ones with oregano She's eating normally now but when she woke up earlier, she stretched and went in to the litter tray. She went to the toilet but when hse pooed she ate them straight rom her bum! (and they weren't the caecotrophes)
    I just wondered what this could mean?? Has anyone ever experienced this before??

    P.S I don't know if I posted this in the right section...

    I've known rabbits eat their own fecal poop when their mouth is hurting them, although I have no idea why. Is this a possibility?

    Ahh that would explain it then! She has tooth root problems and she has recently had an abcsess drained twice from under her chin. Although she is on pain medication so would she still do it?

    I think some buns are just naturally dirty ( ) but it should definitely be looked into if it's out of character for her

    When she first came here, nearly two years ago, she used to do it a lot. But we just thought she was hungry and gave her extra food She did have a really bad diet before she came to us though.

    maybe its a habit then, if they fed her bad it may of been the fibre she was desperate for and its just comforting to her to still do
