    Default Millies poo

    I've just found this outside the litter tray. It's full if normal poop and ginger Toby hair. What do you think? I should mention she is eating and passing normal poops too. She's eating her dinner now. Should I be worried?

    Fur is a normal finding in a Rabbit's digestive tract and it only becomes an issue if the GI tract is already a bit sluggish. Things you could do include making sure that she is on a good diet based on 80%-90% hay, that she has a good water intake- most Rabbits drink more from a bowl than from a bottle, that she gets lots of exercise and maintains a healthy weight. Portly Bunnies can have recurrent issues with gut motility problems. Also, minimising the amount of fur she ingests by grooming her every day will help. Her companion will need to be groomed too so she does not ingest too much of his fur aswell as her own. Grooming them would be especially beneficial when they are in moult.

    I never use Bromelain or papain for my Rabbits, but some people do

    Thank you! <3 I'm just reading about the pineapple and papaya. I've never given her fruits or anything naturally sugary. How do I introduce them without making another issue?

    You can introduce a small amount of either papaya or fresh pineapple stalk. Even supposedly 'fresh' shop bought juice may not contain Bromelain or Papain, so if giving juice it's best to make your own

    Or you can buy these

    But as I have said, I am not talking from first hand experience, just recounting what some other people say they do x
