Enteritis in rabbits is a bacterial infection that can hit rabbit litters shortly after they are weaned from their Mother’s milk.

It causes diarrhea, alkaline cecum and allows the growth of bacteria such as E Coli or Clostridium.

The rabbit generally stops eating which further upsets the tummy causing bacteria to not pass in the stool.

Why am I writing this? We got word from the breeder that Enteritis has hit the barn where the rabbits live. She’s lost two bunnies from 2 litters as of this writing.

We are beside ourselves with worry.

We have to trust the antibiotics the breeder is giving the remaining rabbits will knock this out. We’re also keeping fingers crossed that they survive. 

We originally planned on getting them on August 18.
