We all know that what comes out is a pretty good indication of a bunnies health, and I know that most people here love analysing bunny poo :lol::lol::lol:

Roxy is a really good hay eater and usually produces lovely big golden poops like these:

But when I was changing her vetbed earlier I found some like this:

and a few teeny ones like this:

Theres obviously some changes going on in her gut. These have been produced over the last 4 days, nothing has changed in her diet, other than a handful of timothy hay with birch bark.

Just looking for an expert RU opinion on the odd shapes :):wave:

I belive the change in shape indicates a gut slow down. Not really sure what you should do. Prehaps a hay only diet for a few days until back to normal.

But dont start just on my advice, please wait for someone more knowledgeable :wave:

:wave::wave: Thanks Georgeypudding and Purplebumble :)

Don't know what could have caused a gut slowdown, but I guess it's one of those things that will never be known. I've checked her littter tray again today and theres no odd shaped or little ones (I hope the neighbours weren't looking! :lol::lol:)

I've got fibreplex but will hold on for now and continue to feed her as normal, in herself she's as bright as ever, and eating and drinking normally, so it's all a bit :?
