    I bred a giant with a standard rabbit, and one of the female babies has ended up as a dwarf. I breed for meat, but I am giving the dwarf away as a pet. I am a little concerned about the dwarf though because it is 8.5 weeks old now, but it's belly is really big and squishy. I don't know if it is just fat, or has some other problem. It seems to behave in a happy and healthy manner. It does seem to eat a lot. anybody know about rabbit health problems associated with a big squishy belly?

    Pictures? If its a true dwarf, it probably will not live long, they can have problems with thier organs, the belly could be part if it. Does it have short ears and big eyes?
