Question: Okay so, I got my bunny for my birthday and it was completly clean all over. Then, after a few weeks of having it, there started to be clumps of poop on its butt. Its starting to get a infection and i dont know what to do, were not going to bring it to the doctor, so is there any food i should stop using? Or food we should start using? Sorry its an awkward question.. but my parents will get rid of it if i dont get this taken care of!

A bunny's poo is an easy indicator of its health and diet. A poopy bum is not good. It's really necessary to know your bunny's age to answer better. Diet needs to be adjusted and his bum needs to be cleaned. To clean his bum, use a damp or wet washcloth. That should work. If it's dried on, it may be necessary to wet his bum more. Do not give him a full bath-- quite bad for rabbits. Just place his bum in an inch of water and work the poo loose. If he's under 6 months old, his diet should consist of unlimited alfalfa hay, plain alfalfa-based pellets and water. Avoid any greens or veggies until he's 4months old. The hay is the most critical part of any rabbit's diet. He needs lots and it needs to be refreshed a couple times per day to encourage more eating. If he's over 6 months, he should have timothy or other grass hay (alfalfa is not a grass hay) and he should be switched (gradually) to a timothy-based pellet that is limited to 1/4 cup per 5 lbs of body weight (roughly). A healthy rabbit poo is the size of coco puffs and is not mushy.

This happened to my rabbit a few months back. What's probably happened is, the poo was too sticky an stick to its fur and then dried up. Which probably means you need to stop giving your rabbit certain types of foods (you'll need to ask the vet about what not to give it) so What youre going to have to do is take it to the vet to get the poo removed and cleaned up:-) hope this helps!

Give him tons of alfalfa pellets and timothy hay..it makes their poop hard and dry so it wont stick to them, good luck!! if it doesnt get better take it to the vet...sneak out at night and take it if you have to :)

First of all: Being muscular will not stunt your growth. Second: To get skinny, burn more calories than you eat in a day! Just eat healthy, portion controlled foods and exercise. be sure to do some cardio before doing strength exercises. Third: If you wanna poop, eat fibre! (think beans and whole wheat) Fourth: STAYING UP LATE IS THE WORST THING YOU CAN DO IF YOU WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT! Being sleepy triggers a hormone that is supposed to tell your body "go to sleep!", but sometimes your body gets confused and thinks that the hormones are saying "Eat some food!" So, when you're tired you're more likely to overeat!
