I know I've been off for quite a while but I could use some Binky Bunny support right now.  Without going into detail ( a lot has happened),  I saw Abby at my Mom's house today and I could tell she was not feeling well.  She wasn't eating normally and she was not as active as usual.  As the day progressed I saw her getting worse and grinding her teeth.  She has an appointment with her vet tomorrow afternoon.  So, she came home with me since no one else has the time to take care of her.  Tonight I picked her up and had her so I could see her tummy trying to find out why she is not feeling well and not eating.  I noticed a white frothy substance coming from where she would urinate.  I spread her fur to eat side and noticed what looks like a large abscess or maybe an infection just to the left.  I was so upset to see this and so worried I could lose her.  I will update after we see the vet tomorrow.

Oh Well, can't be helped..... Maybe this will be a wake up call for the rest of the family and one of them will take more time and interest.

Thanks everyone. I ended up dropping her off this morning so she can be seen in between patients and be under their care while she waits. She was getting dehydrated and at least she can be force fed and get fluids now. She also developed a gel like discharge when she goes potty and had absolutely no strength or energy this morning. Her vet will be there at 10. Hopefully we will hear something soon.

UPDATE:
I just got back from the vet with Abby. She's not doing well. I was told that she's down to 8.5 lbs and that if I can't get her to eat and drink on her own soon that I'm going to lose her. The vet said her stomach felt doughy and that her stomach isn't moving. They gave her 200cc of Sub-Q fluids and force fed her 60 ml of Critical Care while she was there. They had her out to try and get her to hop around to help get her stomach moving but she just laid there. She did not poop at all while she was there.
She will be getting 20 ml of Critical Care 4 times a day, Metacam once a day and Metoclopramide 3 times a day. I also need to try to get her to hop around a bit to help get things moving again but she doesn't want to move. She's very weak. She bobs her head when she tries to move, when I put her down when we got home her legs couldn't hold her up and she seems to be doing a little army type crawl when she wants to reposition. They said they thought she was tired from fighting the force feeding all day.
I'm a wreck, at a loss and not sure what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions? I know many of our bunnies have been through this.

Did they give her pain relief while there also?

Do you know when last time she passed anything?

Try some massage if you haven't already. Kneading the tummy if she doesn't resist. I also found big long strokes down each side was appreciated. Keeping all four feet on floor or lap if holding her.

Massage, simethicone.. im not sure what metoclopramide is, is it a motility drug? If not, I would get one to help get things moving. Force feeding can be dangerous if nothing is moving in her tummy.
