Lazy Lop

Hey everyone, it has been a while since I have posted.

For those of you who dont remember, I have a 2 year old neutered mini lop named Jellybean. I am writing today because I have noticed that Jellybean is EXTREMELY lazy. I am worried that he may be depressed. I let him out of the cage everyday when I get home from work and put him back in before I go to bed. He used to spend that whole time running around, jumping, exploring and just plain BEING BAD! Unfortunately, now he runs around a couple times and then just lays there. I know they say lops are lazy, especially when they are neutered and he is getting older. Do you think there is a cause for concern?

p.s. there is NO way I would be able to get him a companion.

Thanks for your time!

Lazy Lop

Hi there, I also have a lop and she is very lazy too during the day,but at night she seems to perk up a bit. But I reckon they are just a lazy bunny, and no need to concern yourself, only if they don't like to be cuddled anymore or stay in their hutch all the time. Then I would be worried.

It might be that he's getting older and is maturing. I have four rabbits...the only active one is Elvis who is two years old. The other ones are aged three, five, and six years and aren't that energetic anymore.

Of course, if you're worried you can always call the vet.
