    I'm using Carefresh litter right now, but I have a couple problems with it. First, it's not as good as I've found wood shavings like pine to be when absorbing odors. But I know pine is dangerous for bunnies because of the dust and fragrance oils, so I can't use it. But my house is very, very...

    It's safe to use baking soda to clean the bunny's cages right? Mostly their litterboxes. Probably a stupid Q - I mean ppl brush their teeth with that stuff right? I don't see how it would be bad for rabbits, I just want to make sure! If anyone can recommend any good cleaning products to use...

This morning Wilma pulled feverishly to loosen someo f her...

    I have two new dwarf bunnies. They are approx. 3 months old. Recently, I've purchased them a corner litterbox in hopes that they would start using it. I've read tons of websites on the subject and have done what they all say: try different kinds of litter, rotate the corner where the litterbox...
  11. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hey. First time posting here, been really busy lately. I was wondering if wood stove pellets were ok for mice. I use them for my ferrets and it works great at keeping down the odor. Also Carefresh is ok for them right? It isn't dusty and they seem to love it. I read on outher sites it was fine...

    Hey guys, I got my new bunny on Tuesday night! I'll have to see if I can figure out how to post a picture later, he's so adorable. I have just a few questions. Is kiln-dried pine okay to use as bedding or should I stick with aspen? Also, what are some good pellets. I've heard Oxbow...

    My bun (who is about 5 months old), for some reason, has stopped using his litter box. He used to be so clean. Is there any reason he stopped using his litter box? He as a normal litter box for bunnies big enough for him. I use Aspen woodshaving and I put hay in his box. Any suggestions on...

    :confused: :( I changed my bunny's (4 months old) environment from a cage to a bigger playpen that is in my living room. He as been biting the playpen and pushing it a few time a day. Now I noticed that he's spraying (or peeing) on soft stuff and not in his litter box. So I took his...
