Zelda's poos aren't quite right...

Post by Zo on Thu May 21, 2015 9:55 pm

Or Hector's aren't, it's difficult to know which one is normal, ha, but I'm fairly certain hers are the ones that are odd.

She eats a lot of hay so they are a text book golden brown, but they're a fair bit bigger than Hector's, they have a wet sheen to them (isn't showing up in the pics) and when you tread on one accidentally they completely disintegrate. She also drinks A LOT of water, I'm talking 1-2 bowls in the day, then the same again overnight.

Hectors are smaller, don't disintergrate when you tread on them, and are completely dry.



Hector's on the left, Zelda's on the right



A squished one! What are your thoughts?

Ifs shes eating a a lot of hay then shes going to be drinking a lot of water as you can imagine it makes the mouth quite dry. Plus having two buns together they will be going through water a lot quicker. The texture looks good to me because they are filled with hay. Is she bigger than Hector? bigger buns have bigger poops.

I am aware that two rabbits will drink more water than one, and also that bigger rabbits will have bigger poos. She is the same size as Hector, and he eats roughly the same amount of hay as her, but only drinks half a bowl of water in 24hrs, she's drinking 3-4 bowls in that same period

They both look fine. I really wouldn't worry about either the poo or the drinking. The temperature fluctuates a lot at this time of year , even indoors, and this can really affect drinking patterns.

I can only echo people above.

They are actually really good poops - both of them. Mo's are often a 'mini' version of Willow's, too Laughing

They look fine to me hun, Im wondering if the water drinking is a habit thing? perhaps she was starved of it in a previous life?

If she is full of energy and bright eyed I wouldn't worry too much.

Agree with all above. Mine are drinking more recently. Especially after eating their pellets.

They look very much like Holly's love, and she loves her hay and subsequently drinks quite a lot. I don't think you have anything to worry about pet.
