I just wondered if you had had any luck locating a NZ rabbit vet?
the rabbits seem to be perfectly happy, but I'd like to take them for
a check up and find out why Huxley (mushy cecotropes rabbit) has
a wet tail from time to time.

Please feel free to print and share anything from our web site with a good vet.  It might be up to you to "train" a good vet in your area so your bunnies will have proper medical help when necessary.

I wish I could do more!
