Im so worried about my 8 month old Saffie. He is being kept in the vets over Christmas and even my vet is worried about him. Im hoping shes not said this to prepare me for the worst.

They are trying to work out whats wrong with him. He has lost a lot of weight gone from 1.35kg to 1.1kg practically overnight, the xray shows he is full of gas they are trying to work out why.

He is on a drip, having pain relief and gut movement drugs i also gave them a panacure wormer to start him on while he is in there.

I am literally worried sick and so worried he wont pull through. My poor baby...

I lost my last 4 month old this time last year to!

They are spoilt indoor bunnies how can this happen to mine. Its not fair, i love them so much.

any news on saffie? x

My vet called me at 9am with some positive news. Saffie has been eating some hay and grass and a few nuggets. He is pooing much better. The drip is going in nicely so im guessing thats a good thing as it must be working!

She said they are going to monitor him all day, if he seems brighter by lunchtime she asked how i wouls feel about nursing him at home as they wont have many staff at the vets over christmas so i may be able to give him more care and watch him more.

So i could have him home to nurse or if he is still to ill he may get transferred to another practice over christmas.

Fingers crossed he can keep fighting and stay strong for his Mummy and Bunny brother...

Thank you for asking how he is...

Merry Christmas everyone! xx

Only just seen this (as had poorly one myself) but I hope Saffie is doing OK and has been able to come home.

26-12-2010, 04:50 PM
Hello everyone!

I have brought Saffie home today!! :D

His weight is back up to 1.37kg which is more than what he weighed before he was ill. He has a brilliant appetite as well. He is on metacam and zantac syrup and both my boys are being wormed using panacure.

I find out Saffies blood test results after christmas and he is having another check up wednesday evening.

Im sooooooo happy he pulled through! Thank you everyone for your kind words.

Love Claire & Saffie... :)

All is not great for Saffie. :(

Yesterday i noticed even though he was eating soooo much he wasnt pooing. So i took him to the emergency vets and she gave him a gut stimulant injection and sent us back home. Saffie done lots of poos and all was good.

The same happened again today, we went for his check up and i mention he hasnt been pooing again and she gave him another jab and told me to monitor him closely. So i have removed his litter tray and tided his cage of any poos and i am going to do a poo chart to check size and how many he prooduces.

He has to have 2 gut stimulant injections a day now until the blood test results finally come through. (Hopefully tomorrow)

I have noticed something really odd.... I removed his litter tray at 5pm and he has not done 1 wee at all?!!?!?!?!?!?

I am concerned.... Why wouldnt he wee? Do you think he is holding it as i have removed his litter tray?

My vet also said if he carries on like this she mentioned a fluid diet? And further investigation in the new year.

I really hoped he would be better by now... he now weighs 1.47kg so his weight has shot up massively compared to the 1.1kg he weighed a week ago!

Poor Saffie. Sending lots of vibes.

Did your vet mean hay and water diet?

You could ask your vet re Fibreplex as this can help to get the gut stable/moving, but only on the advice of your vet.

30-12-2010, 02:51 PM
Im not to sure. Still no blood test results though. He is on so many drugs at the moment. He pood loads last night and this morning and since 12 he has stopped again. My vet has given me metaclopramide so i can keep him going pooing until we know whats wrong.

Its beginning to feel like hes never going to get better! :(

30-12-2010, 02:53 PM
Hope Saffie gets much better soon xxx

30-12-2010, 11:18 PM
Saffie has been kept in at the vets AGAIN tonight. They think he now has a compaction in his tummy. They may xray him but will let me know in the morning how he gets on overnight.

This has been such a long week, i just want him better now. Its the not knowing whats wrong thats getting to me and wondering if he can be cured and if he is in pain.

I even brought a dog crate so i can take him to my boyfriends parents tomorrow night and nurse him as best i can.

Im glad my other bunny is happy and healthy at least Beau and my boyfriend are keeping my spirits up.

Just hope he keeps fighting and stays strong... Im so worried he will have to be pts... :(
