So I was home all day today and Coco had free roam of the whole house, she only came out of her cage for a few minutes and acted kinda odd. She sat in a corner of her cage all day and when I tried to coax her out she wouldnt come. Instead i pet her and she just nestled up. But she hasnt really ate all that much if any.... I cant really afford a $300 vet trip ....

 Any suggestions? Im about to go to bed but hopefully by morning she will be better. I left her with lettuce, carrots, pellets and hay. 

 The only thing i could think of was some friends were over yesterday and everyone wanted to hold her so maybe she is stressed out form that?

 

Thanks Everyone

My Pepper gets like that when ever we have a storm. I think she remembers the day the ceiling fell in. So the extra attention fro the visitors could well cause it but that stress could also lead to blocked gassy tummy. Has she had some tummy rubs etc. I know it works for Pepper if I go to her every couple of hours and lightly rub her belly, she must find it soothing then once the storm has passed she is fine.

How is Coco doing? Some rabbits are very sensitive to lots of people/noise- my Nelli is like that, while my BunBun is the life of the party. That said, Nelli usually recovers pretty quickly from the trauma of company, so if Coco isn't back to normal today- if her veggies are still untouched and she's not eating, playing, etc- a vet trip will be your only choice. Like Roberta said, tummy rubs are good for gas- but if it's been over several hours, in this case overnight, GI stasis might be setting in and I wouldn't mess with that.
I hope she's better today!

I think it may have been the company... She ate her veggies last night and pellets. She did a few Binkies this morning.

Thanks for the tips on the belly pets i will def remember that for the future!

Glad she's feeling better. Just a tip for the future: a lot of vets offices offer a payment plan of some sort. I know those vet bills are icky and often prevent us from taking in our buns, but ask your vet about plans and I'm sure they'll accommodate you. Vets tend to be really sympathetic toward us and our pets.

Phew-false alarm

My test is always 'will they take treats'...everything must be moving along ok GI wise if they go bonkers for their favorite treat. And it worked-because that was exactly what rang my alarm bell when Rupert wasn't feeling well, he sniffed the treat and didn't take it. I check with a treat three times a day
