Question Hmm...

This hasn't been such a good week for me. First, Music's fin rot refuses to go away, and now this. Charlie had this brown goop all over her back today when I was cleaning the cage. I wiped it off, and it smelled like poop, so I thought maybe Caesar had diarrhea and wiped his butt on Charlie? But, there's no diarrhea like poop anywhere else in the cage, I went through the whole litterbox, and nothing! They also seem really sluggish all of a sudden, they don't run to the door when I come to feed them. Also, Charlie thinks she's a boy. She runs after Caesar mounting him, which freaks Caesar out so much. Charlie cannot be a boy in anyway because she is a female, spayed, and not a teenager! Has she taken her boy name literally? What's going on?

Red face

I remember one of my bunnies had a brownish fluid coming out of her. Is it thick and sticky? If so maybe you should keep an eye on it, and go to the vets ASAP...

Red face Yukky

As I mentioned before one of mine had it, is it the female bunny, and has she been neutered? If not it may be a hormonal thing!

She is female and spayed...what exactly is going on since your bunny had it?
But, I think it is Caesar that has the problem because I don't think Charlie could get her own poop on her back...

Red face Hmm..

It was a while ago, and before they were neutered.. I think it just cleared up on its own..

Red face Don't worry!

If this is the first time you have noticed it, I would not worry too much.. Have you looked it up on the internet? Give it till tomorrow, and go to see a vet, if you are still worried.. Could it be something they have eaten?

I'm not sure if turnips are good for bunnies. I know you can give them turnip greens, but the actual turnip may have caused digestional upset. Hmmm, I'll see what I can find. I hope they get better soon! If it continues, you should definitely take them to the vet.

It could be an isolated occurence, as far as the "poo" goes. I don't remember if Turnip is an acceptable treat or not.. .I've not seen it on the "AVOID AT ALL COSTS" list, but I don't recall it on any "these are safe" lists either.


As far as the mounting, Charlie could just be asserting herself as "alpha female", basically the one in charge. Once Caesar gets it figured out, she'll most likely stop.

I agree with velvet, I know that my dog mounts my other dogs, and the vet said she is just sayin she's alpha. So maybe its the same with rabbits lol? Its sorta funny, because she's tellin her she's the boss and the other one is so passive she'd never try to be boss. Both my dogs are spayed too, I've noticed she'll do it for about a week then stop for a month or so then pick it up, so hopefuly thats what your bun bun is doin, and it should stop.... if they are anything like dogs with the whole alpha and boss stuff.

I know that rabbits are very territorial. Perhaps increase the space that they share together and this may stop? I was just re-reading some of my info sources and came across something that reminded me of that.
