Boo scans a lot when spooked or in unfamiliar territory but you can go days without seeing it. Does her fosterer recall scanning? Do you know if she was given panacur by the RSPCA - some rescues do

    Good luck bunny bonding ! I start panacur a day or two before bonding. i've been working off fHB advice who was my vet for many years. Its 4 years since I bonded bunnies so checked this out with my new vet last week (she has just moved to the practice FHB set up and has since retired from)& she advised I go with what I'd been doing previously. My current vet isn't a specialist but is rabbit interested & savvy xx
    I had not :-/ going to have a google, I think Iíve heard of her though.
    See Iím just going off having seen it when working at a vets and showing a vet and he said E.C so have lapizole so Iíve always followed it but not really looked into it.
    She does act like something takes over her, like sheís doing something and forgets, scanning starts then she snaps back ďinto the roomĒ itís like sheís a robot lol.

    The fosterer didnít say anything and I felt rude (silly I know) pointing it out. But to get info I asked about worming and she said no sheís not been wormed. So as I had an unopened lapizole I thought two birds....

    Hoping Iím dong the right thing then. Did boo stop scanning or does it still happen sometimes? Xx

    When she is inside she rarely does it, only when she spooks which is rare as not much to spook her here. I know what you mean about robotic & also back in the room. FHB did explain why bunnies scan to me but both me & OH are struggling to articulate it (nothing new there). I think you're doing the right thing xx

    Haha! Thank you thatís all really useful though.

    Oh good :-) sheís being good about taking it on pellets so thatís a help too. Thought Iíd google about cats and apparently they can get it too, so they canít meet her for the first 14 days or so either which is a shame xx

    So we are rubbish at making decisions, we ended up last night picking a name out of a hat from the three (Ada, Grace, Ada-Grace).

    Here she is, Grace <3

    Iíve been sitting doing a colouring book in her room so she can get used to me. No touching yet she says lol, but sheís flopped close to me about a foot away so thatís something I think. She also loves a hard flop so much so she flopped one way to the other and rolled down the ramp in the hutch! Oops! Lol. She seemed fine after.

    Starting to name train now too and help build trust hopefully :-)

    It was meant to be It suits her

    Re the scanning, it can be something and nothing. I am glad you're doing the long course of lapizole, as a scanning bunny I had went blind with E.C. - this was before the Panaur/Lapizole came into being.

    Aww I'm so pleased she's living with you now. She really is a beautiful bunny. I have to say Grace was my personal preference for her new name!

    Loads of bonding vibes for when you're ready to kick things off. They do say male/female pairings are supposed to be easier so hopefully you'll have an easier time of it this time round. The bonding gods certainly owe you a favour!

    Aww, I think so too <3

    Yeah exactly itís better safe than sorry plus it means sheís wormed now to so also a good thing.
    I didnít know anything about E.C until I worked in a vets so Iíve been catching up on it all. X

    Ahh thank you :-D

    Yes definitely think itís time we had an easier bond! Iím really hoping the male/female being easier plays in our favour especially with Luther taking a long time to Trust Truffle at the beginning. Thank you <3

    Aw thank you!
    I think sheís definitely settled fast into her room, probably owed to moving around so much in her 18 months. Still got a way to go before she trusts us more, but I think she will get there :-) x
