  8. Re: Guessing a close estimate to a rabbit's age???

    Know the breed. Second, look under the hind feet. You can tell a rabbit's age by its hind feet and observe whether the fur is worn down. Gently run your fingers along the feet and up the ankles to...
  9. Loss: Re: One of my piggies died... how to care for the other one

    I don't trust the males. The practice of neutering guinea pigs is unusual and not common where I am located. As a result all males I've encountered have been unneutered.

    Re: Have a vet visit planned but . . .

    All of the above. But also best to retrace your steps and uncover how he came upon this condition in the first place. New pig? Too small a cage? New kibble? Retrace the steps. Agreed on more hay,...

    Two rabbits - one netherland dwarf and the other a lionhead, females whom I rescued separately and thankfully took to bonding after a few days. They're now inseparable.
