Question
My dwarf rabbit has had a healthy litter of 8.  One, very small died day one .  However, mum has had a very leaky vagina from birth (Sunday) which seemed to lessen but now on day 5 it seems to be increasing again. She is quiet and eyes are wide. She is still eating but I can't get to a vet til tomorrow at 7:30am. Can you help us?
Regards
Trudy

Answer
hi Trudy i am in the UK so time might be a factor
as long as mum is eating and drinking OK i would not be to worried as she is bound to be a bit ff it just giving birth to 8.
take her to the vet for a checkup but  think it will be alright . don't keep her away from the babies for to long

I can answer questions about breeding and showing rabbits. I have been breeding Black Rex rabbits for the past 10 years and have won numerous prizes for showing them. Ive also done a fair amount of judging.
