Where did her dewlap go?
When we first brought home Penelope she had this cute little dewlap. Now it's gone. We are trying to figure out why. She has been spayed. She has full roam of the back bedroom so she gets a lot of exercise. And she is under going a severe molt. Her tushy is actually bald in large spots. h
What do you guys think caused her to loose it? Should I worry that it's gone?
I have read that during heavy molting you need to be sure they have plenty of hay and water of course. I have been plucking her to try to elminate hairballs. I also increased her salads to twice a day. I want to be sure to keep things moving through. And I also added some alfalfa hay to her diet. I read that they need more calories to grow the hair back.
Should I give her more alfalfa hay? She doesn't get a lot of it a day. She gets more timothy than alfafa.
She just seems so tiny compared to the other two chunk balls! Then again she is a dwarf bunny.
