    I have a buck who lost a lot of weight and eats like a pig.
    I have wormed him.
    He does have eye goobers and I am treating that with eye ointment.
    He is not sneezing or snifflng, not appears ill in any other way and
    drinks and eats just fine.I use a good feed 4 parts pellets with 1 part black sunflower seeds and 1 part rolled oats. (All he wants)
    He also gets hay at least every other day.
    At least 2 or 3 times a week he gets a carrot, dandilions and fresh grass.He use to be a nice healthy and big buck. (English Lop)
    Any ideas or suggestions?
    I mean this bucks bones are showing yet is is acting fine.
    No one else in the barn is doing this. Just him.

    Can rabbits get tape worms from eating wild foods? I am wondering right now if regular wormers get rid of tapes.

    How do the teeth look? I'm having issues with one of my Cal does right now...but in her case, I think her teeth became maloccluded.
