View Full Version : poorly rabbit

01-11-2010, 07:24 PM
Hi im here again for some helpfull advise please. My rabbit at the moment has been off her food for 3 days. Yesturday she seemed her lively self but today she is very withdrawn and she is hopping around as though she is stressed( from one side of her hutch to the other). Today she hasnt poo'd at all only very very tiny little bits, she is drinking water but not weeing as much as she generally does. Although i went to try and entise her with some of her yogurt drops and she nearly snuffled my hand away. Please help any advise welcome, i am very concerned but not wanting to take her to the vet straight away as she has been off her food before (but has been pooing) and come round after a few days. Sorry to drag the tread on.

If she's not pooing she really needs to see a vet ASAP. Phone your vet, they will have an answerphone message with an emergency vet number on it.

You need to take her to the vet straight away.

If she is not eating or pooing she needs urgent vet attention.

Hi Guys thanks for all the advise, i took lilly to the vets they gave her an injection of something that will kick start her bowels again and a injection of vitamin C. just got to keep a eye on her for next few days if no improvement then take her back. She seems a little brighter and has been nibbling on her hay so fingers crossed.

I hope your bun is ok, my charlie was hospitalised last week due to not eating, they wouldnt let him home till he had eaten and pooed, hope your bun is pooing now. xxx
