Alright, I have a few rabbits. Two NZreds, and two Cals. I am writing about my NZred doe as she is not feeling well. I noticed a few days ago that she had a wet bottom, then noticed that she seems to be sore on her hocks... can't see it as she has poo stuck to the bottom of her feet. I'm not sure why she does as she has a wire bottom cage with a board in it for her to rest on. I also noticed that she is breathing faster than the other bunnies at rest. I looked at her back end again today and now notice that she has been pulling the hair on the insides of her back legs. Not sure what is going on. I can't get in touch with the breeder that I got her from as he is a pretty busy guy. I called the breeder that I got the cals from and she thought it sounded just like sore hocks, but after a couple of days on the ground in a wire bottom cage.. she doesn't seem to be better. I can't make the connection between sore hocks, breathing faster, and now the hair pulling? Can anyone give me some insight? I know there is backyard herds, but I am not a member and not sure i want to become one yet. Can someone give me any advise? I have just gotten into the rabbits... maybe 6 weeks in... so you might imagine my confusion.. frustration?
