Hello everyone. My name is Laura and my companion is Bailey. She is a dwarf rabbit af about 5 months. I adopted her about two weeks ago and she already is the love of my life.
When I brought her home, she was a spur of energy, however, everything changed. I brought her to the vet for her first check up about 8 days ago. Everything was fine. Today I went back because she stopped eating and lost weight. The vet took her weight again and told me she lost 20% of her body weight in 8 days. I don't know how she was before I adopted her, but I continued her feeding the same way she had it when she was at the shelter. five days ago she just decresed her intake. The vet instructed me to put her on a babyfood and yogurt diet and to force feed that with a syringe every two hours.
I will post updates about how she is doing. I weigh her daily so I hope to see the numbers inclline soon instead of declining.
