    Poor little Stickers is sick :(

    She has the snuffles - otherwise known as a respiratory infection and is on Baytril now for it. Poor little bun.

    Baytril did the trick - she was on it for one week and all symptoms gone. Now she won't let me within 10ft of her without running like I am going to eat her though because I had to force it into her mouth. o.O lol

    Re: Poor little Stickers is sick :(

    Thanks, but try telling them that. I am getting thumped at (which is like a bird screaming the "WARNING! DANGER!" squawk) every time I look at her and she even lunged at me trying to bite me today. She thinks I am the worst bunny mom ever, though if she had cooperated it wouldn't have been that bad (she clenched her teeth, refused to open her mouth, refused to swallow when I did finally get her mouth open). It's kind of like a kid throwing a "I HATE YOU!" tantrum because they didn't get their way. I don't know which one is better at them, Stickers or Thanos (should see the marks he leaves when I have to do anything with him, owwy beak)... at least Powder only stays mad a few seconds, then he's like "Oooh, pets, I like pets". But, I am glad she's better too - the URI can turn to pneumonia if left too long, which wouldn't be good!

    Do bunnies bite? If so I would worry about a bunny bite because if a beak can cause so much pain I would think bunny teeth would hurt even more. Maybe you can give Stickers special yummy treats to get her back on your good side and once you dont give her nasty meds for a couple of days perhaps she will forget all about it.

    Yep, rabbits bite if they want to. And yes their teeth do hurt, they can leave scars. It's typically a last resort for them, but house bunnies can get moody and start to lunge and some will even chase peoples feet trying to bite them through shoes / pants. I'm not too worried about her biting me though, they give plenty of body signals and if she bites me it's my own fault for not paying attention (just like with the bird). She's getting treats, but she still hates me atm I stopped the medicine yesterday, but she's still mad. They can hold a grudge as well as any bird.
