Diet of wild rabbits

Common Questions and Answers about Diet of wild rabbits


Avatar n tn Plus wild bunnies have a large stomach capacity. When I calculate feedings for wild baby bunnies, I use 10-25% of their weight as a guideline. Plus. . . they are very sensitive to a diet change, need plenty of probiotics in the formula and stress easily. In other words, wild bunnies are difficult to raise, especially if you have a single.
897070 tn?1320656229 After my recent diagnosis of cirrhosis and steatosis I am really seriously considering changing my diet with the intention of lightening the load on my liver.It would be good to be able to lower my inflamation a little. I'm wondering if anyone on the forum has changed to say vegetarian and if so whether they have seen any signs of improvement.
1134263 tn?1307298584 Qouting a well known survival knowledge if you eat nothing but wild hares and wild rabbits for a large amount of time, you will starve to death. There aren't enough calories or nutrients because of the rabbits' diet, and the body takes too much energy to break down the protein that isn't giving anything back.
Avatar f tn that brings a chill to my spine,,,not because of the cold, but memories of St. Catharines and Brador beer(now, that was a beer that could kich ones arse)....the stories I could tell, but I won't..
Avatar f tn I did more reseach on the pinworm eggs and found we need to add HCI and digestive enyzmes to kill the parasites and eggs in the digesstive tract. Plus a diet of absolutly no carbs exept from vegatables. I had read where grains and some carbs are fine but apparently not- only from vegatables. So, it would be a diet of meat and veggies. Sure worth a try.
102086 tn?1190513046 And I weigh them every day to calculate the amount of formula they need. They have a stomach capacity of 10 -25 % of their body weight which is a lot but rabbits nurse only twice a day. If you do it more often, they can end up with stomach problems. At this point I strongly urge you to take the rabbit to a vet who can determine its age more precisely and then get the rabbit hydrated if necessary and on the proper diet for its age.
724811 tn?1291434386 Are these feeling due to what I am going thru in my life (divorce, losing most of my pets, moving, losing my condo, owing money)? Or is it a side affect of antidepressants? I want to paint again. I don't want to become overwhelmed by feelings of guilt and sadness as a result of leaving my husband and my home. I deal with these feelings at least once a day. Life is hard enough, and I've taken antidepressants on and off for about 10 years.
223520 tn?1221443883 I also know they're coprophagous (eat their droppings). I have to remember that even domestic rabbits are like wild rabbits in most ways.
280700 tn?1210287416 Hi everyone I will be starting Clomid next month and wanted to know how many of you ladies have been on and how many have you got pregnant on the first cycle. Alittle bit nervous about the whole thing but I know it will be alright. I really cant wait to get started on the whole thing. So any feedback and thoughts about Clomid would be appreciated. Thanks a bunches...
Avatar n tn Obviously no matter how much our beagle enjoyed eating the feces, it was definitely not a healthy diet for her. Feces are full of bacteria and other unwanted items such as parasite eggs and other gross things. So the trick to discourage our beagle to stop eating everyone’s poop was two fold. One was an additive that can be purchased from your pet store or veterinarian that is easily mixed into the food.
Avatar n tn For the past 2 days I have had a lot of clear/whiteish discharge, that is very runny (not a yeast infrction). Sorry to be so graphic, but I am hoping this could be cervical fluid from the implanation or some sign that I could be pregnant. Does anyone have any information on this that could help? Has anyone who is/was pregnant had similar symptoms? Thanks!!
203342 tn?1328740807 That is awesome! Actually, now that you mention it I have seen video of cats actually riding with their owners on motorcycles and all so maybe some cats just have that certain "call of the wild" where they want to be out with their peeps doin' what they do. Sometimes when Freckles is outside on the back porch she will meow (rather forcefully) at the screen door. Well, naturally we open it thinking she wants in.
424675 tn?1260544950 seems like he does it out of nowhere, he also sometimes bites hands if someone pets him and has their hand or arm in front of his face... one of my friends hit him when he did that to her and I just took him from her... none of us would EVER hit him and that is the only time he has been slapped since Ive had him... I dont know what kinda life or home if any he had before joining our family...
645800 tn?1466864555 Dennis, My tomatoes will be ready next week and peppers. To bad I can't eat them because of my diet restrictions. No salad for two months, I live off salad.
Avatar m tn Yes Salmon and other oily fish is very good because of the Omega 3 oils, which are good for the heart. But a dog shouldn't have fish at every meal. Maybe about 2-3 times a week is okay. Lean meat is also okay. Rabbit is actually good lean protein, but many butchers don't supply it any more, and buying it opens a can of worms about "farmed rabbits" (which is a very cruel business.) In the old days wild rabbits used to be shot and passed away instantly.
976897 tn?1379171202 It actually began about 100 years ago when a researcher decided to see what effect it would have if Rabbits were fed a meat diet. To no surprise with the knowledge we have today, those Rabbits soon developed Plaqued arteries and died. However, those Rabbits are not build to digest meat they are not carnivores.
Avatar f tn Needs to be on a lose dose of metronidazole (25 mg twice a day) for the rest of his life and a low protein diet. I am upset but trying to be optimistic. Specialist is to call me back Monday since I only spoke to another vet today she was off today. All other results were normal. Only way to be 100 percent sure would be biopsy but I am not putting my guy through that.
480448 tn?1426952138 Especially to put it in the context of what animals would have to do if they were in the wild. I guess a lot of their behavior is instinctive. That makes sense. That makes me feel better, it's so hard to imagine them going off to die alone. Ugh.
Avatar f tn can you stay with the organic side of life or grow your own? TODAY many wild game is eating the pesticide/herbacide ladden crops that commercial farmers not too sure if that's a "safe" way to go is safe..atleast the FDA has done something right there..

679466 tn?1247009654 If they live in an area with plentiful bird population, the majority of their diet may consist of birds. If rabbits or other small mammals abound, generally that would be their primary food source. Their gastrointestinal system is designed for a consistent food source. Abrupt changes lead to bacterial shifts and irritated bowels. If your pets are accustomed to small amounts of low-fat table foods, they should be able to safely handle some at Thanksgiving as well.
1176103 tn?1332974613 (no soy,wheat,artifical colors or flavors etc)...IF ON A PERMANENT DIET OF IT.. for just a few feedings of rabbit to get him back to eating w/o the upchucks you are probably ok. I would cook it in enough water to cover it completely, than use a blender and mash it up water and all...that makes a nice gravy consistency.
280891 tn?1261016650 He implanted the root tip of this tooth in 100 rabbits and they all died of a heart attack. He spent the rest of his life researching the thing which had killed his son. These people are not making this up. When you see a young kid die playing sports and they want to tell you it is all genetics. What they do not tell you is the childs heart is full of mercury. The FDA has discovered the dosage of Tylenol may be too high and is harming the liver in some people.
Avatar f tn Even before the latest article on eating a low protein, high carbohydrate diet(healthy carbs of course) came out, I had already experimented enough with Joe's diet to see he improved on a vegetarian diet. The diet is much harder to contend with while on Tx because he ends up eating whatever he feels he can stand rather than making the best nutritional choice. He eats vegetables much better when not on Tx. He eats a lot of fruit though.
544292 tn?1268886268 Good Morning Tramadol Warriors and welcome! It's a good day. Happy to see all of you. This is a great place to be to come off Tramadol. Welcome, snuggle down and get comfy.
Avatar f tn And Linda, your comment about our lucky dog, one time we kept rabbits in the house, let them hop around, no cages, and one of the bunnies came from a coworker, and after she listened to the way we took care of them, she goes, "That is one lucky rabbit!" I laffed and laffed. It's true, we do get rather involved in our little critters' lives, but it's all a joy. But this getting older thing had me scared, until I read what you two wrote. I will reread them whenever I am afraid.
544292 tn?1268886268 We're delighted to hear from you! Lots of good nourishing words here Friends!
Avatar m tn What is great is I see alot of wildlife when out there early in the morning and I love it along with watching the sun come up over the mtn. We see wild havalijna (wild hogs), road runners (one of my fave cool birds, saw one with a lizard for a snack), quail, rabbits, lizards, and occasionaly coyotes although they are very stealth and hard to find sometimes. They dont like people or commotion. So very up lifiting to see all that helps with all this.
