....just need nom nom and poo vibes... (following thread 'sisters rabbits')

I've decided she'd be less stressed back here in the quiet so have set them up with two dog crates and a little heater with a thermostat so can keep the temp constant. Shes done two very small poo's and had critical care and picked at some food at the vets but is quiet now and not eating at the mo. I have some critical care here so will give her some if she doesnt start eating again soon. Got baytril and metacam which i'll start tomorrow... think i should set up my own rabbit hospital :lol:

Will put pics up in abit of my hospital bay :D:lol:

Nomming and poo vibes. Went through this last week, was in a complete panic. After 3 days all was back to normal. Try not to worry.

She's only eaten a few strands of grass, so last night i gave her abit of critical care which she really does not like, have fed small amounts of it twice over night, shes had some this morning with her metacam and baytril... why did i get involved?! Didnt think id have to do this again :roll: Ive hardly slept which is like most nights anyway with naughty baby wriggling, am soooo tired :(

There are a few small poo's in her cage but only about 5.

Please can we have nomming vibes :(

Nomming vibes heading her way.... have you tried giving her anything like Parsley or her fav food? Or a Fenugreek Crunchie? They are supposed to be appetite stimulants

Oh come on Buttons, try a bit harder for mumsy.

Get nomming Buttons!:)

15-04-2011, 09:02 AM
Nip outside and pick some dandelions. They'll probably do the trick!

Buttons, Mum has enough to worry about. Get eating!

15-04-2011, 09:30 AM
Spays do take longer to recover from but that doesn't stop you worrying. :? Sending loads of eating vibes through to her.... Hope you get more sleep tonight...

Parsley was the first thing Molly would eat - and only if hand fed!! I had to syringe feed her for quite a while and really started to think she would never eat for herself but she did. I guess they feel sore and confused and eating is a bit too difficult. It must take a while for the anaesthetic to leave the system too. I know on the few occasions I've had one I've not fancied eating for ages afterwards.

Sending lots and lots of nomming vibes to Buttons xxx

Lots of vibes, i missed it the first time round

15-04-2011, 03:07 PM
Oh dear, nomming vibes your way.
I feel your pain as Pie reacted terribly after her spay (but that was becuase she had underlying gut problems)

15-04-2011, 03:09 PM
The first thing any of my buns have wanted after a GA is herbs or grass, never anything chunky for some reason. sending vibes x

15-04-2011, 03:26 PM
I hope that Buttons has started to eat now

Lots of vibes for her xx

Well I've made an appointment to take her back at 6.10pm... she does seem quite bright, gave her some more critical care about an hour ago and ended up with a load in my hair :roll: dont ask!

Shes nibbled a couple of strands of hay and a few strands of grass.... she has done about 9 individual poo's (i counted them :oops: ) and done a few very little wee's. She's stood up on her backlegs and washed herself too... not sure if im being a little over cautious? I havent done this for a long time!!

She has timothy hay with dandelion, meadow hay, blackberry leaves, apple leaves, danelion, apple treat stick, piece of apple, few pellets and couple of carrot treats, piece of carrot and some grass... im watching her like a hawk... :oops:

Fingers crossed. At least she is bright.

Hope things go well at the vets. Keeping everything crossed.

15-04-2011, 05:54 PM
Typical, shes just eaten abit of grass and hay... done two more poos and a little wee, then given herself a thorough wash feet, ears the lot and stood on her hind legs.... :oops: ive cancelled the appointment as she has a checkup tomorrow anyway and dont want to stress her out on another car journey without good reason... seriously not doing this again, my nerves cant stand it! Shes not even my bunny :lol:

15-04-2011, 06:14 PM
I'm glad she's eating a pooping and weeing again!

Lots of nose rubs and vibes!!!!


16-04-2011, 01:05 PM
We have more poo's :) shes still not eating her pellets but has munched abit of grass so im not worried. She's ripped all the newspaper up in her cage and is really quite stroppy about it all now so think shes starting to feel better :lol: she has her check up this afternoon and then back to my parents they go, phew!

We're picking their new playhouse up monday, looking forward to helping with the project :) (might nick some of Helens ideas ;):lol: )

Sounds like she's definitely feeling a bit better! :lol:

16-04-2011, 01:29 PM
I am so glad you've managed to avoid another vet trip. Hope the improvement continues and she doesn't get too grumpy while she is cooped up!

18-04-2011, 02:50 PM
