    The deal with GI stasis

    I recently joined a house rabbit forum to get more ideas for toys/treats and stuff, and GI stasis seems to be the most common thread topic ever. What is really the deal with stasis? Apparently the causes are lack of exercise and not enough hay, or an alfalfa based pellet. My rabbits live in...

    Newspapers as bedding

    I have heard of people using newspapers as bedding/toys for their rabbits, but is it actually safe for them to ingest? If I give it to them they will eat it/chew it to pieces, so I want to be sure its completely safe first.

    Dutch kits

    First litter of the year! Went pretty well, I'd say. My doe Corrie kindled 6(one stillborn), and they've been growing like weeds!

    Is a foot sprain in a rabbit fatal, or can lead to a fatal condition? Can one be treated without a vet?
