No Fur?

Remember when I posted about my bunnies losing fur, and then dismissing it as spring shedding, well, they're still losing fur. But the weird thing is that it comes out in clumps. You can see that it's loose, but when I pull on it, it hurts my buns, but comes out really easily. Is this still spring shedding or is it some kind of disease? What's going on with my buns? They were never like this last year...

Hmmm.. are you bunnies girls? How old are they? I have a girl, named Bun-Bun. I just took her last month to the vet. We were talking with her about that. She said it was normal for these tufts of hair to come out. She showed me how to gently groom her and they came off in little puffballs, very easiliy. Is that what the fur they are losing is like? My bunny is brown and white, but the fur coming off was a little greyish. I wonder if this could just be the case with your bunnies?
I hope I could be a little help?

Kitty, yea the tufts are greyish in color. One of my bunnies is a girl, but they're both fixed, so I don't think she's pulling it out for maternal reasons. They come out really easily, just like you described. So this is normal?

Plaid, thanks for that website! It said tufts of fur falling out were normal, so that makes me feel better!

Anyways, we're taking them to the vet in a few weeks for their annual check-up. I think it can wait till then, since they're acting as spoiled as ever!
