Newborn Rabbit Found Dead In My Rabbits Cage. What Should I Do?

Newborn Rabbit Found Dead In My Rabbits Cage. What Should I Do? Topic: Surprising newspaper articles
May 22, 2019 / By Hepsie
Question: i have two rabbits. Today, i found a dead rat/rabbit baby...eyes closed, no fur, lying on one side, dead in the rabbits cage. The thing is, i thougt the rabbits were male. Obviously, i have mistaken them. There was alot of blood in their newspapers. I think one of the rabbits ( the dad ) may have killed the baby. Now I think i have to separate them, in case the mum ( i dunno which one ) starts giving birth to more babies. What should I do? The rabbits were calmly eating green veggies when I saw the dead baby.

Regardless of the sex,you should have kept them separated.Rabbits should be separated at all times unless you WANT to breed them or if they have received proper introduction to each other.Frankly,I am surprised that the two haven't fought yet.You HAVE to separate both of them. If you want to keep them together,neuter them both first and then do the proper introduction: http://www.coloradohrs.com/articles/adop... As for the dead baby,dispose of it before it decomposes in the cage.More likely,it has been dead from birth.A single kit is not uncommon but it is risky for the mother's health.Consult the vet if there are any problems with the mother rabbit.She may have some problems in her body that's why only one kit was delivered. ...

Earnestine Originally Answered: Do I have to feed my rabbit, rabbit pet store food? Can't I just feed her what rabbits in the wild feed?
You've asked this question a few times haven't you?? It would be difficult to ensure your rabbit gets 100% of the nutrients he or she needs. They have a delicate digestive system and very specific dietary requirements. I understand your aversion to store brands, but it would be healthier to go by the book in this case. Ideally a rabbit should have unlimited access to timothy hay--which should have no additives or anything in it, just pure, simple dried grass--as the main part of their diet. This should be supplemented with about 1/4 cup rabbit pellets (pet store food) and a handful of veggies daily. I'm also a little concerned about your dog. What do you mean by "human food" exactly?

You Shouldn't give Any ANIMAL, HUMAN food it is not right and it could possibly lead to a Obese animal but when a Animal gets too Obese it upsettinley Dies. Please do not give Animals Human Food. If your dog doesn't like Dog food Go to the Vets and ask for info. You must give Rabbits Pet Store Food But on Fridays to Saturdays treat them with a Nice Fruit day :) Sorry if i sounded nasty its just my dog died when i gave it Human Food :( xx Kara

The baby might not have been killed by the dad, i had the same sort of problem, my rabbit gave birth without me realizing and i found three dead babies in the morning with half their skin missing, but i have found out that if it is the mums first litter then it is quite common for her to lick the baby too much and accidentally lick off some skin or even a limb, don't worry just separate them in case of any more unwanted pregnancies.

ich does not look like fungus, it's small grains of salt, and is a parasite NOT a fungus. the white cottony stuff, did you only see that after the fish had died? fish deteriorate fast once they've died and this may not have been the cause of the fish's death. if the white cottony stuff was visible on the fish before it died, it could have been the very contagious and potentially lethal columnaris. what size was the tank? what kind of fish? what was the fish tank maintenance regime? fish are super sensitive to water quality issues, tanks should always run all day, and it won't clean itself. were you performing 15% water changes once a week? did you know what the water parameters were? i would restart the tank over again incase it was columnaris. new decor, new substrate, new filter media, and put the tank through another cycle. EDIT: an angelfish should never have been kept in a 2.5 gallon tank, they need 30 gallons minimum! that was probably the cause of it's death, it would have been extremely stressed in that size tank and stress leads to a low immune system. check the site below for guides on the setting up of a tank. the only fish that could be kept in a 2.5 gallon tropical tank (i presume it was heated?) is a single betta splenden.
