Help! New Zealand White doe kindled, bleeding out her nose

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a NZW doe that just kindled with 7 kits. But she's got blood coming out her nose!  This is our first time breeding our rabbits. Surely, this can't be normal!  Has this happened to anyone else?

 

Thanks!

Are you sure that the blood is coming out her nose? It is possible she just got blood on her nose from cleaning up after the birthing. I haven't had a rabbit bleed from its nose before, so I'm not sure what the problem could be.

Definitely the nose, as the mouth/lips had no blood on them, except for what had run down onto them. It has since stopped and she is resting. She had all 7 kits on the wire instead of in the nesting box, but luckily, we were there to put them into the box. I have a heat lamp keeping them warm (they're in the garage). We'll see if the 1st time momma tends to the babies. Hopefully, whatever the bloody nose was, it's behind us. Thanks for the reply.
