As humans evolved to eat a generally mixed diet, we absorb some things better from animals, some from plants. I would expect (but have no scientific evidence at all, mere speculation) that rabbits could absorb plant-based nutrients better generally, however they might be unable to absorb the 'extra' quantities needed given their propensity to be the sort of animal that's quite fragile, predated and breeds a lot :S
    that's very interesting , thanks

    So in diary terms Mouse seems happy enough & eating well. Perhaps a little quicker to join the others at tea time - she often needs a nudge. She caught her back leg jumping in to the litter tray earlier. Not seen her do this before(she was v excited running off with her cookie before the others got a whiff). I wouldn't say its too significant yet but access to litter trays is something I'm keeping my eye on anyway

    I don't buy treats but made an exception for these which contain Omega 3 & have the bonus of being really good for adding metacam dose too

    Metacam wise I'm now trying Mousey on a week of metacam , 3 days off then on again. Joey is keeping up with the massages.

    Does anyone know where I can get a plastic dog bed without ventilation (pee) holes in the base/

    Where did you buy them from? I can't see what they are called. Look at Mousey little squishy face

    I often see them in charity shops. There's some on Ebay too, eg

    NB- If you think your Rabbit is unwell it is essential to seek immediate veterinary attention.

    I know. I have to break mouseys up most of the time. The treats are from pets@home. I doubt they work, they say for healthy skin & coat. Mousey won't take anything by syringe without manhandling so they are handy for that
