Rabbits/Baby Bunny


I have a Holland Lop baby rabbit that I am concerned may have something wrong. It is 7 weeks old (still with its mother), and although it is bright eyed, has no diarrhea, eats & drinks normally, and has a smooth, healthy coat it's belly seems to be enlarged, both to the eye & to the touch.
Its not hard at all, but soft.
Do you believe something could be wrong?

Thank you very much for your time!


Your bunny is just fine!he's growing and even though he's getting bigger he may need some time for his insides to grow he's just a baby and 1 out of each of my three litters has a soft tummy.it could also mean he's always full which is good that means he's very fell fed and could become the leader of the group.soft tummy is nothing to be worried about anymore questions you have i will gladly answer them!my bunny or baby bun Carlo has a soft tummy as well and so does tilly but Carlos insides are growing and tilly is well fed its nothing to worry about UNLESS you see he gets. very thin and has a soft tummy that could make him grow wrong

   Best Bunny Wishes!:)
