Hi Guys
I wonder if anyone is able to help. I went down to my two bunnys at 7am and big wig was not her usual self - she always comes to the front of the cage asap for breakfast! This am, she was hunched at the back of the cage, not interested in food (she has had a case of GI stastis around 6M ago) and has produced alot of very loose stools - i have cleaned her up, offered her favourite food & water but she is not interested :( i gave her a dose of the good bacteria stuff i have from the vets - my OH is at home (i am stuck at work - people dont get how important my bunnies are to me here) with her now and keeping her cleaned up etc - should i get her to the vets this pm for pain relief (she is grinding her teeth) in the hope this makes her eat? I am thinking of giving a few doses of pineapple via syringe or critical care, but is the loose poos that are worring me.

I am wondering if i should continue to offer greens and pellet - or just hey/grass? Currently both have Excel pellets (what the vet recommended) but i seem to have nothing but problems (2 cases of statis in 6ms now this)

Any help will be very very gratefully received. My heart is breaking as I lost my Sooty two years ago and I canít bear to loose my special girl

Many thanks

Update - No more poo's produced since 7.30am, she is cleaning herself which i am hoping is a good sign, going to leave work early cause i cant stand not being with her :(

I would definately get her to the Vet ASAP as tooth grinding is a sign of severe pain :cry:
I would not administer any Pineapple juice, the sugars in it will exacerbate the gut dysbiosis.
Can your OH get her to the Vets now ?

many thanks for you replies - OH is now at work too...but i will be disapearing asap an get her in late afternoon. Had an updated from OH, she is drinking, had a second dose of the phrobiotic and put up a fight having her bum washed, so hoping my spirited little girl is a little better.

Also wondering is anyone has any comments on the best pellets to feed both the bunnies - as Excel just seems problem after problem? I've had 2 cases on GI stasis in 6ms (one each) now this....my vet is a good bloke but not overly knowledgable and teld to do what i say...from the info i get from here! I make sure both Buns have fresh hay and greens each day as well as their pellets.
