Rabbits chest and paws getting wet and sticky

by Michelle

My two rabbits are in a two story hutch and are fed spring mix and hay every day with carrot treats now and then.

The male bunny is a lion head and for the past few months he has continuously been having wet paws and chest and he get the water from the salad mix all over him and it gets sticky. He has his teeth done every three months so I do not think it is not from that but this is a new problem since living in the hutch.

I'm not sure what to try. I was thinking of trying to dry the lettuce before giving it to them or changing their water bottle for a hanging water dish.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated. The girl rabbit who is also a lion head does not have this problem.
