    Yea ikr!


    You reckon there's any danger for Penelope with the sheer amount of veg she's eating? Like it's ungodly amount but I don't wanna separate them.. But she's hoovering it all up too, she's eating hay too but obviously less.. Idk if there's something I should be doing

    If it’s veg they are used to and tolerate well I don’t think I’d worry too much as a short term thing.

    My rabbits eat an enormous amount of veg and forage in the Summer months, which I'm sure does mean that they eat less hay. I think the key thing is if they are used to it, as Zoobec says.

    See it's all veg they've had before, but some they've not had for months.. But it's all she'll eat.. So Idk.. Penelope seems to be loving it just hope it doesn't cause any issues.. The orchard hay is here, hoping new hay will tempt Apricot probably a long shot.

    She's much more herself now, still eating veg, but eating more hay, and dandelion roots again, still won't eat pellets or a treat.. More poops that are getting more normal sized tbh they're all dark for them both because of the amount of veg they've consumed so I can't see much difference..

    I wouldn't say she's 100% though still so Idk what to do about the vaccination, she's got a vet appointment today with my exotic vet, so could have it done.. But Idk.. Obviously I'll discuss with my vet, but I can't decide what I think

    I'm really pleased Apricot is doing so much better now

    Hopefully your vet will be able to advise on what to do about the vaccine. If I were in your shoes, though, I think I would err on the side of caution and wait another few days until she is 100% again. She should still have immunity from the previous vaccine. If you're anything like me and have the vaccine done now, you might spend the next year worrying whether the vaccine has "taken" properly and if she is fully covered.

    It's like we are the same person!

    Yeaaaa it's a horrible time for this to happen, I've noticed Clementine has some fur in her poops too... Must be the time of year

    I'll talk to the vet later, I think ima ask her to xray Apricot too just to make sure everything looks okay and obviously have a good feel etc also super paranoid about mosquitos can't win really!

    Absolute disaster at the vets..

    Apricot is fine, xray showed some gas in the cecum, but said that's normal, we've got more loxicom because the cat metacam was a tiny dose and a tiny bottle so was gunna run out quick once we started giving her the right amount.. Didn't vaccinate, she's booked in next week to have it if she's well enough, vet really wanted her to be 100% first.

    When we opened the carrier they were both covered in orange stains so Penelope had peed on the side of Apricot in the carrier on route, then when they'd been digging hay about they manage to cover themselves in the pee and being white rabbits were completely stained all over had to get them out, so I'm covered in their pee, then vet was, the table... It was ridiculous and the pee was such a vivid orange colour even my bag has rabbit pee on it Idk how long it'll take for them to go back to being white again...

    sounds like an average day at our house. Boo manages to get herself cleaned up with 24 hours or so, then Joey does it again

    Oh gosh re the wee I expect the vet is used to that sort of thing though and worse.

    I think it's sensible to defer the vaccination to next week. Good decision
