    Rabbits have very sensitive digestive systems and too much of anyone thing or an unusual thing can give them diahrhea. They need a lot of basic hay and then some vegetables (leafy greens). Look at the article attached for feeding. When feeding your new bunny something new - just do one thing at a time for a couple of days to see how he responds.

I have a holland lop that I rescued and I named him holland because he was abandoned at a gas station near my dads job and the person just left poor holland with his cage and a pet carrier and proof of vaccination... At that time I didn't know the different breeds of rabbits so I named him Holland untill a week later I noticed that he was a holland lop and he is the sweetest bunny and he follows me everywhere and snuggles with me :)

I had a holland lop for 14 years I got 2 rabbit at same time and one lasted 7 years and snowball 14 years. He was super friendly and could get in and the cage by himself untill he got old. He just died in my arms. I don't find another one that can live that long again. Rabbits are great they don't make much noise. You might here the rabbit drink water and thats it. I miss my rabbit snowball. from david mississaga ont canada

    I am sorry. It is hard when your pet family goes. All a person can do is get another one - but it doesn't have to be the same kind. You can get another breed (or the same) and love it just as much. I am sorry though.

    Mr. Bunny is a cute name and I would just keep it. I had a girl dog and I named her BEN.

I am wondering I just got 2 holland lops. 1 of them doesn't really have floppy ears. They tend to stay up like a regular bunny. It is the same color, size, same kind of fur. Can this happen and it is still a lop? I know alot about mini rex we used to raise them. Don't know a lot about Holland lops. If anyone can tell me I'dd appreciate it. My daughters first year in 4h she won best of breed with one of our babies we had. Thank you

    Some ears on a Lop don't flop for up to 6 months sometimes even later. Also, some lops have very small ears and the ears don't completely flop. I wouldn't be too concerned about it yet as they are both pretty young - correct?

    I've have had a holland lop rabbit for 14 years. I know 7 years is normal. I had 2 and one lived only 7 and the other 14. He was snowball. He was very friendly rabbit. He'd kiss you like a dog and he just died in my arms. He was a-great rabbit. I want to get a new rabbit - a holland lop but I don't know if will live for 14 years again. David

    Yes, it is possible to have floating ears, like wings.They are called airplane ears. I have a holland lop that has airplane ears. If you show that holland you will not get marked down for it. A special technique you could use is taping quarters to his/hers ears for a couple hours. His/hers ears might not stay down but it is something to try!

I have 2 Holland lops--Chestnut and Twinky. Their personalities are so different! Chestnut is sweet and cuddly while Twinky is very independent and ornery. I adore them both. Chestnut loves to eat and would bounce around as soon as I enter the room while Twinky would be busy "chinning" and owning everything. For hairballs, I try to feed my rabbits a handful of timothy hay everyday to promote good digestion and I prefer papaya as treats which I give in moderation just like carrots (usually 2x a week) for any fruit is rich in sugar. Papaya extract is known to help rid hairballs. I give them a tablespoonful of whole wheat grains or old-fashioned oatmeal and sunflower seeds for their coat about 3x a week. They have the softest fur comparable even to Coco, my darling mini-rex. If handled regularly at an early age, rabbits can be very pleasant, interesting, low-maintenance, lovable pets.

    Flees is spelled fleas! lol
  • Georgina Parent - 2011-05-10
    Wow. You really helped her out. I don`t think spelling was her concern!!!
    As far as your question, Hun just google it, I`m sure you`ll get your answer.
  • Charlie Roche - 2011-05-11
    You can actually see fleas by running your hands through the bunnies fur. Just pet her (backwards) going from the tail end to the head so you can see the skin and if she has fleas you should be able to see them. As far as I can find there is only one product that has been tested on bunnies and is safe. That is Advantage. There are knockoff which are not considered safe but Advantage (the actual name brand) has been tested on bunnies and deemed safe. There are many warnings out on others as been non-safe for your little fella.
    I googled it and went through several articles and that is what I came up with. Hope your little fella doesn't have them. You should be fine though. My daughter has rabbits, also.

    Hi I just wanted to say that I have used Kitten formula Revolution on my bunnies and it has been safe. Don't use any of the cat or dog flea meds because they will kill the bunny. Bunnies are very sensitive to medications and only those deemed safe should be used. Your bunny should be housed indoors and that will keep the fleas off of them.
