Guest itsagreytlife Posted February 19, 2012 Share Posted February 19, 2012 I started Selah this week on the allergy free vet food Z\D. She loves it and the treats too, thank goodness--as do my cats. It smelled so good to them they tried to get in the bag & I had to put in a plastic container. Anyway, I can't give her anything else or it would wreck the "experiment" to find out if she has a food allergy. Vet says give it 2 wks and we will know if her symptoms disappear. She is scheduled for a skin testing after these 2 wks (assuming it is in fact NOT food related). I have successfully eliminated all other food or food related items (including toothpaste ). So that's going we'll (except for her breath--yikes!) But she is still going to town with the rabbit poo outside. Its never seemed to bother her, so I try to just let it go. I do put a muzzle with stool guard after dark so she won't catch & kill any rabbits, & to keep the turnouts short & sweet. Cannot deal with that drama around bedtime. (They seem to come out after dark a lot. We've had a rabbit explosion in our neighborhood since last spring. Word is that the farmers nearby let hunters on their lands to hunt the fox population. And they apparently were quite successful. I've never seen rabbits & their poo during the winter--yes it has been very mild this year, but still: the rabbits are HUGE! And this is with our new fence too.) So, I got to thinking: what if there are things in the poo that she is allergic to and it nullifies my food experiment? Am I way off here? Do rabbits eat stuff that would correlate with her diet? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
