View Full Version : Vibes needed for a poorly baby bunny...He didn't make it

We have a new arrival at the sanctuary this evening...a very poorly 12 week old baby bunny. He's very skinny and has awful diarrhoea. At the moment he's hunched up and looking rather unhappy. He is drinking but has only had a nibble on food, but quickly loses interest like he finds it difficult to eat. The other babies in the litter are apparently all fine, so its not contagious.

I've given him some sub-cut Hartmanns and some infacol, and he has probiotcs in his water, but I'm not sure what else I can safely give a baby rabbit. Can I give a 12 week old metacam or zantac?

We have a vets appt first thing tomorrow btw

Hi, if the baby bunny has diarrhoea I wouldn't give Zantac, he needs Questran and/or Buscapan do you have any?, can you get him to an emergency vet? or are you able to speak to your vet to get advice and meds? I have given babies Metacam but obviously by weight

Is there anything I can do to help?

Unfortunately I don't think the emergency vets would have a clue about treating other than what I've already done :(

I don't have questran or buscopan unfortunately

Oh dear, it's awful when you need your vet and they aren't on duty, you could try fibreplex and plenty of fluids

Can you get vet help in the morning?

The little bubba is still with us. The vet said that metaclop, zantac and metacam are all fine to give to a 12 week old. He's also on baytril. He's had a nibble on a bit of hay and cabbage, and is quite eager to take food from a syringe.

Poor little thing is full of impacted stools and gas, so the priority is to get him properly hydrated to try to shift some of that through his guts.

Keep those vibes coming
