    she has just bought a little lop eared baby from a pet shop! i told her never buy from pet shop.
    well i dont know how old she is but she is quite small and possible about 6-8 weeks old.
    anyway ive just checked her over and she has quite a nasty bite on her back leg/bum area!! it is dry and looks like its healing/healed ok but TBH its a nasty big bite!!!!
    ive told mum to keep an eye on it to make sure it heals completely.

    gotta admit she is a real cutie pie, i can see why mum fell for her.

    Mothers never listen :rolleyes:

    Tell her to keep an eye out for swelling and heat. Sometimes the wound will heal, but an infection will build up behind it.

    I only have one more word to say ....PICS!.

    She is very sweet.

    She has that petshop bunny look. A little scrawny, with a fat little belly.

    Her ears are HUGE. I wonder if she will turn out to be quite a big bun.

    I hope she doesnt get sick. Could be intestinal coccidiosis.

    What a cute bunny, pet shops are awful, i never buy pets from there anymore, just pet food and supplies. I bought a rabbit in a petshop a few years ago and was told she was a dwarf, when she grew to her full size she was huge!! So id say this bun will be big too, she looks gorg!!:D

    She has massive ears - I wonder if she could have english lop in her - there is some english lop crosses in my local pet shop and they look just like this!

    She is adorable though I love the black and whites! x

    LOL

    I arent an expert but the ears are huge, and she has a similar face shape to an english lop....english lops are lovely though so if she is crossed with one then her ears might get even longer and make her super cute!
    If I ever did get norman a girlfriend it would have to be an english lop - I would search High and Low!

    Frags your little frenchie looks like he/she has just done something very naughty with that look! X

    She is very sweet but why when her daughter breeds rabbits would your mum go and buy a rabbit from a pet shop.Seems crazy to me.
    I would be wary of the fat tum aswell.May be worth getting her checked by a vet
