@Michelle: Aww, poor Ziggy! He must have looked kind funny, LOL :p


@D animality: You can't tell for sure or not if they have mites by just looking at their fur. The vets need to do a skin scraping and look at it under a microscope.

... Why can't they eat veggies?? I usually stay away from extra vitamin stuff. As long as they get a good diet, it's rather unnecessary IMO.

okay thanks!! well i dont give them veggies at the moment since they are 3-4mnths old... ive read from this forum that veggies should be introduced gradually when they are already 6months old :)

Do you give them pellets? Pellets have added vitamins and if you're feeding a good quality pellet plus unlimited hay you really shouldn't need to add vitamins, even if they are not eating fresh foods yet.

Ok, yeah there is no need for extra vites then.
And you can actually start introducing them to veggies once they are 12 weeks now. It used to always be 6 months, but the HRS changed it a while ago. :)

HRS is the House Rabbit Society... Their website is www.rabbit.org, and it's considered the bunny care Bible LOL!
You can wait longer if you want though, whenever you feel comfortable introducing them to veggies. Romaine lettuce and parsley usually don't upset tummies, if you give them a tiny bit of it. Remember to only introduce one veggie at a time though.
