Oh dear. Bun needs a vet visit really.

Has he had a new food or a larger amount of veg or pellets than usual?

Is he eating and drinking?

Is he lively, active, looking his usual self?

This can be very serious and I would recommend an emergency vet visit.

Hes eating and drinking but has been a little quiet recently
Is it just an upset tummy?
He has a bowl of pellets a day

No, I fear not. As I said in my previous post, this is very serious and I would advise an emergency vet appointment. Good luck with that - please let us know how you get on.

I too would recommend a vet visit ASAP. Diarrhea can be very serious in bunnies so the sooner, the better.

Also, seen your in Peterborough, hello! I'm up stamford way :p

I suggest you read Sky-O's sticky on when to seek veterinary attention - very good advice.

You mentioned in your other post that the animals clear up leaves in the garden. I don't think all leaves are safe so maybe it'd be better not to let them do that, it could be what's causing the diarrhea.

Didn't you post a few days ago about your rabbit having this problem?

Once again, I would advise urgent veterinary attention.

I have some good news for you

Nibbles has been much better today but we are just keeping a close eye on him thank you for all your help over these last days

Redfraggle, I realise that but all the leaves that do fall i have checked in my book:) and this bunny does not eat the leaves

What do you feed your bunny each day?
Like can you give the specific amounts of pellets etc?
