Wet wet wet

Post by Jonas Bj?rnstjer » Thu, 09 May 1996 04:00:00



Hello,
we have a five month old rabbit (with*** ears) who doesnt care much
of our clothes. He wets us all down as soon hell get a chanche. Will hi
continue or stop eventually? Shall we let the vet operate on him like you
can on cats? We have him in a cage in our apartment, but he really likes
playing with us - and we with him, so we bring him out as soon as we can.
But it`s no so very fun to get wet wet wet all the time (since approx.
four weeks ago thats is).
Sweden calls for help...

Jonas,
I can't tell if your rabbit's vet is a vet for rabbits or a vet for
cats. If Vet is trained and experienced in the care of bunnies, then
I would recommend having your bunny neutered, as it will help prevent
cancer when Bunny gets older. If the vet is cat or dog vet, please
wait until you find a vet for *rabbits*! There is a huge difference
in the kind of treatment and medications bunnies get!
Have you tried to train Bunny to use a litterbox? It is not hard to do.
Put the litterbox in the cage and throw a few droppings in. Make sure
he has a soft place to sleep so he won't use the box as a bed instead of
a toilet. Praise him when he uses the box. When you take him out to play,
make sure he can get to his litterbox.
I'm glad to hear you take him out of the cage and play with him! It sounds
to me that you don't have much experience with pet rabbits - is that
right? You might want to read a book called *HouseRabbit Handbook*.
It is by Marinell Harriman and it is the best book on rabbit care I have
yet read. If you want to order it, write to:
                Drollery Press
                1524 Benton Street
                Alameda, CA 94510

I hope you will write again and let us know how Bunny is doing.
Rose

Hi Jonas-  Your bunny is marking you as his property.  Its a sign of
love.  He will continue this until you get him neutered.  But be sure you
have a vet that knows rabbits to do this proceedure.  Good luck!
