Last week Jersey had some work on her molars done. She did really well and was eating soon after I got her home.
She's been less growly and loving my petting her head and cheeks.
However, the last couple days she's producing poo that looks like dried peppercorns. It's all become consistently small.
Rumball is shedding a lot at moment so she probably is ingesting some if his fur.

I'm wondering if this is related to her teeth though? Would she now be tender in the mouth this far after dental? She's not indicating that from when I touch her cheeks and jaw. However, she seems to be resistant of eating the hay pellets I give her and not as quick with her greens.

Usually mine are sensitive those first few days but not really into the week. Did her pain meds run out?
It could be she's getting Rumball's fur...especially if her lack of spurs makes her more inclined to groom. And if she's not eating veg she could be a bit dehydrated. How's her water intake?
I suppose it could be lingering pain depending on what she had done or perhaps the burring tool slipped and she has a sore spot in her mouth? (this often happened with Mimzy) Either way perhaps a revisit to the vet is in order to rule out other causes or infection.

Thanks MM

She didn't get pain meds other then what she got for the procedure. =/
I do have a little metacam here for Jelly that I could give if she's looking like in pain. I want try save it though.
She seemed to have no trouble in first few days after appt.

She is eating her veg, just takes more breaks and seems want something else all the time.

She's had a good run around outside today and her poos are looking a better size.

Bindi took more than a week to recover. His mouth was very painful after his dental. I was giving him Metacam for the pain. He wouldn't eat hay at all and only veggies if I cut them up into bite sized pieces.

Toffee took almost 2 full weeks to recover from her last dental so it is very possible that is what this is. It may have been worse than you thought.

I think if you do dentals you may want to consider metacam since she's older and probably some motility drugs.

It's funny though because Bobby recovers quickly. So I really think it depends on the rabbit and maybe Jersey is just more sensitive to dentals. Pepe also took a long time to recover.
