Shedding

When your bunnies go through their shedding cycle...does their coat change? When Lucky is shedding markings on his fur appear that look like he is wearing a saddle or he has coins on his back. During the process the marks get larger until they just disappear. Normally he is just brown with the exception of his ears and nose which are a darker brown and of course his white slippers.

I kept meaning to start a thread about coats. My male has always lost fur. I groom him evey other day and always the brush ends up loaded with soft, fluff like fur. Recently he has a tide mark like line across his back, i assume where he is moulting.

I am intrigued and would think this was normal but Lily, my female, never ever moults. I groom her and no fur comes out at all. She is younger also so I would have expected to her to lose her baby fur but none??

Anyone offer any advise as to why Dexter just cant stop?? They are in a centrally heated house so I understand this has probabky got a major effect but then I would have expected to see this in both rabbits??

Hmmmmm.....

heh heh heh... Jackpots 'crankey' molt line


Jackpot is super sheding right now, and Aniseed is always shedding though it's comming out pretty good. All my bunnies need a good brushing for sure.

This is my Rex Bo Molting, him and Ani both molt from their back out


See the big dip in her fur?


Now Baby and Jackpot just more shed normally then in large areas like these two. All four rabbits are house in the same area, so there is no climet change, and they eat all the same foods. So I think it just is different for each rabbit how they molt/shed.

During this time I feed all my bunnies some canned Pumpkin to help with the digestion of any fur.

Ill remember canned pumpkin then. Dexter licks himself a lot and I do worry about digestion. Thanks for the advise.

Oh wow!! That's a major fur loss. Lucky does not shed that much. Of course there is a lot of fur when you brush or stroke him but it does not look indented like that.

Ya my other two don't shed like that either, I havn't seen many bunnies that do. Maybe my two are just weirdos LOL.... Actually I've seen other Rex's with that same molt spot.

Mr. Creepy's markings change from dark brown to a silvery slate depending on the season (he's marked up like a siamese cat - dark ears, nose, tail, & feet). Right now his markings are pretty dark, but just few months ago he was almost all white.
