My bunny hasn't eat much in two days, he hasn't even finished the half a cup of pellets I gave him yesterday morning... And they arn't any vets arround! They're all gone at some "exotic pet vet" convention I even tried long distance calls... no one available
We think he might be a bit constipated and it might be giving him a bit of a tummy acked and cut his hunger a bit (We can't get him to eat his hay so he might not have as much fibers in his diet as he might need). My boyfriend gave him a bit of paste to make his poopoo go better (Something like half the dose you're supposed to give a kitten) but I was wondering if there was a way for me to check if he's constipated, like something to feal when I toutch his tummy.
His eyes and nose are dry and he doesn't sneese.
I'm starting to be really worried
My bf already gave him the paste x_x I found a note saying the bunny went pooping a little bit after and eat up a bit. (A vet did tell him it was fine for bunnies though)
I also found some emergency hospital to call to... Right now he's eating dampt letuce I just gave him... So I'll watch him for a little while, see how it goes.
I am thinking that what you gave must have been like laxotone? Though that's not toxic, there are differing opinions if that can help, hinder or make zero difference.
Has your bunny been pooping?
Put your ear up to his stomach and wait for about 15 seconds - Do you hear any gentle gurgling? If so, that's good. IF it's VERY loud, or nothing at all, then that could be a problem.
There is a good article about how to deal with Gi Stasis, however, this should not replace vet care, but it's definitely an article that is helpful to any bunny owner that may have a rabbit who is dealing with it. http://www.bio.miami.edu/hare/ileus.html (it is kind of scary - especially the title and the first little bit, so try not to panic and read through on the things that are recommended that you should do)
Keep us updated!
Sending out healing vibes. I hope your bunny feels better soon!
