Pregnant rabbit passing blood
Hi, I'm pretty sure my rabbit is pregnant and ready to give birth. She has a round hard tummy and is laying down all the time. I noticed gooey blood where she normally goes to the toilet 2 days in a row. I have separated her from the other rabbits, cleaned out the cage but there was no sign of babies. Is this normal? Thanks
Hmmm, no, not normal.
Sometimes does give birth to a dead kit, and then the rest of the litter is alive and fine. But if your doe is having trouble giving birth, you may eventually find a long, malformed kit dead, and several more, all dead.
We don't know how far along your doe is or when you should be expecting the litter (day 31-32 after breeding is normal). Unless she gives birth tonight, perhaps you should consider getting a rabbit-savvy vet opinion.
