I would like to get them both some vits actually they were both badly slugged and urine scalded when we got them.
    At the vets, teeth, ears, eyes, testicals were all good on both, body condition, coat condition and hocks were badly on Dillon and poor on Cuthbert.

    Thank you again for your replies

    I will PM you regarding vitamins. Give me a prod if I forget

    We have come in tonight to evidence of fur pulling and a very agitated Cuthbert. We have split their pen in half and with a bit of luck prevented them getting at each other. Cuthbert is so very very cross and keeps banging on the floor to be let in with Dillon - Dillon is just eating! Cuthbert is making a grumping noise in his throat and spraying whilst diving back and forth looking for a method of getting into Dillons half. And Dillon is just eating! They can still touch noses through the wire and both have a litter tray, food and hay in with them.

    As I type Cuthbert has just dived over the top and in with Dillon - now to fashion a top for the run - thank goodness we have a joiner in the house.

    What a shame! I am afraid they will have to be separated now with no way of getting together or you might find an injured rabbit. They try to castrate one another Now what you need to do is get your underweight rabbit into full health before he is castrated - it could take a few months but once he is a healthy rabbit then you can go ahead with his neuter. You can go ahead with the other one's neuter.
