Customer: Hey, we have 3 bunnies, one we found just laying on its side, hasn't really ate all day or drank all day. Just acting strange, a 2nd one has started being strange dragging its front feet. We cleaned the cages good and found some mold on a little bit of food, i can only assume they ate some.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What size is the bunny? How much was eaten?
Customer: We don't know how much was eaten, as for the size they are 7-8 weeks old and fit in both my hands Sorry I don't know the weight
JA: Has the bunny thrown up since this happened?
Customer: No
JA: And what's the bunny's name and age?
Customer: Gini 7-8weeks old, and bunny 7-8weeks old

I am sorry you are having an issue with your pet

May I know to whom I am talking to?


Hi Jacob, nice talking to you

What other signs have you observed so far?

Just what I listed, reduced or no eating or drinking, one of them is dragging legs around when she was fine this morning, and the other has enter a state of just laying on its side breathing, thats all

Please bear with me. I’m working on the answer to your question and I will send it as soon as I’m through with it. Thank you for your patience with me.

I check the anus for both and neither are impacted, we did find a small amount of mold in the food container so idk if or how much they may have consumed

This is a clear case of food poisoning and you don't have to wait to see what happens next. It is good that you found the source of poisoning, my advice is your bunnies need immediate veterinary attention. You will need to keep them warm and comfortable as much as you can while taking them to the vet. If any is heating up, a cool wet cloth should be used to cover the bunny and at the same time ensure they don't get too cold.

Does my response make sense to you? Do you have additional questions or concerns?

No thank you that is all

You are welcome.

Thanks for using JustAnswer

I was happy to help you with your questions today.
