Poppy – French Lop Rabbit

  • Female
  • 3 years old
  • Arrived 11th November, 2020
  • Fostered in Macclesfield

Poppy came into our care as the owner couldn’t look after her anymore, Poppy’s sibling was killed by a fox. But they just didn’t have the time for her anymore and didn’t feel they could take on another rabbit.

Upon arrival, her fosterer noticed she had a strange gait and just didn’t seem right. Long story short Poppy was diagnosed with Ec:

She has received and responded well to a long course of treatment and has been signed off by the vet. She can go with another Ec bunny or non-Ec bunny as long as he’s healthy (neutered of course!) Poppy was already vaccinated; she has been neutered and microchipped.

A few words from her fosterer:

Poppy has now been us for a few months. She had some health issues, but these have been treated by the vet and she’s now doing well. The only issue that she has now is that she tends to drink more water than is usual; but as long as she has a plentiful supply of water, that does not present a problem – this has been investigated by a rabbit savvy vet and nothing of concern found.

She’s a very friendly rabbit and quite inquisitive. She likes rabbit treats and will happily take them from your hand. She also adores grapes (a rare treat!) and kale. Given the chance, she’ll happily roam around the garden and returns to her hutch of her own accord. She’s not the fastest of rabbits and so letting her wander around the garden is perfectly ok.

She’s never nipped and I’m sure that with a bit of patience she would become even easier to handle than she is now. She does like company and I think would really enjoy living with another rabbit.

Housing requirement is a minimum 6ft shed or 6 x 2 x 2 hutch plus 60 sq. feet of floor space. If a run it has to be 3ft in height with ideally the freedom to a secure garden/alternative area for stimulation; exercise, space and enrichment is most important!
