Free Listserves about Rabbit Health and CareIn order to be a well-informed advocate for your companion rabbit, seek anecdotal advice from other knowledgable bunny people, and--if your veterinarian is amenable to such information--pass it along to your rabbit's vet. Some of the best places to find knowledgeable lay people, including many from the House Rabbit Society, is on the EtherBun and Housebun electronic listserves.
EtherBunThis is a monitored, but unmoderated list whose purpose is for discussions of domestic rabbit health, care and behavior. New subscribers are moderated only long enough for the list monitors to ascertain that they're not spammers. Once you post on topic, your moderated status will be removed and you will find that your rabbit questions will be answered quickly because (1) the list is not moderated and (2) there are more than 5000 subscribers from around the world. Someone is usually online to answer even emergency posts. You'll find lots of knowledgeable House Rabbit Society educators participating in EtherBun discussions.
