    Default Any Ideas Please

    As you know I've now bonded Bella and Benji last Sunday, all is fine and they are sooo in love, But this morning, while cleaning out the hutch and Bunny Palace, and litter trays, There is some stringy poo's, I think they are from Benji as he is always grooming Bella, and a few times i've been into the Shed, he's had fur hanging out of his mouth, hes not agressive with Bella, but just hangs onto her really tightly, any ideas what I can do PLEASE

    They are having 2 paypaya tablets each a day at the moment, 1 in the morning one in the evening, it says on the tub they can have up to three, should I increase them for a while while they are still humping a lot

    Maybe try them with a little fresh pineapple as well as the tablets.
    My two love a little fresh pineapple every week and it seems to cure the stringy poos

    I'd go for daily grooming with a fine tooth comb (e.g. flea comb) to help remove any loose fur. The weathers a bit in the middle of warm/cold at the moment so they may still be moulting slightly for winter.

    Awwwww naughty Benji. Well you know the problems I'm having with Snowy pulling Flips fur but this with Benji doesn't sound like its aggressive fur pulling. Is Bella happy and still loved up with Benji?

    Flip is quite nervous a lot of the time so I think it bothers her but if Bella seems quite normal then I would have thought she will be ok and Benji might calm down soon.

    Have you tried putting a bowl of pineapple juice down for them? Flip and Snowy love it that way.
