Still looking for a good program for making pedigrees, and managing your rabbitry/caviary, but not looking to spend an arm and a leg?? Check out LuckFoot's HareWare at http://www.LlamaTronics.com/ihare.html

HareWare offers features that other software programs could only hope for, and for only $45.00 Most other programs are at least $99.00 and don't even compare to the amount of features of HareWare.

For more information, check out http://www.LlamaTronics.com/ihare.html

A friend just lost a rabbit and I/we thought it may have been gut stasis at first. (Turns out that it WASN'T - there were no signs of intestinal problems in the necropsy.) We learned some interesting things about gut stasis, however.

If your rabbit has gut stasis, basically he stops eating and pooping and often dies within a couple of days. Apparently, stasis gets mistaken for "hairballs"/woolblock a LOT, and stasis can cause woolblock, but it's not the same condition.
For whatever reason, food slows way down in going through the rabbit's digestive tract, giving bad bacteria a chance to explode in growth. The bad bacteria release toxins into the rabbit's bloodstream and the rabbit's GI tract bloats up with gas. Not a pleasant way to die. It's a very serious condition, but if you start noticing signs, there's things you can do to save your rabbit!

Here's some more information:
