Heya, ralph is unusually quiet and easy to catch, he's eating okay (took veg and pellets of his this morning and just giving him hay ATM) and drinking but his stomach feels tab bloated, it's not hard but u can feel it's slightly gassy, how do I help him??

Is he pooing ?

Yep, his poops seem fine, not runny or anything

Could he be upset by last nights severe storms ?

Bloat is actually a very serious condition, so I doubt that is what is wrong if he is eating and pooing OK. But if you are concerned then the best thing to do is get your Vet to examine him. Far more information can be obtained from a hands on examination. If a problem is brewing it is better to address it sooner rather than later.

He's an indoor bunny but maybe he was upset? I dnt have vets near me who deals with rabbits will have to have a phone around

I took him to pets at home and they said he seems fine and his Timmy's soft, I asked about worming him as maybe that's why he's not himself but he only weighs 1.8kg and the dosage is 2.5kg and above

Vets near me wasn't open being Christmas Eve, and I'm still so worried, left him in his cage but he's just sat in his litter tray all Dossey and sleepy, I so hope he's oaky in the morning I would be devastated if he passed away :-( :-)

Do you mean you took him to the Vet within Pets at Home- ie a Companion Care Vet ?

Yea, specialist in small animals aswell, she sed his tummy was all soft and not bloat, plus he is pooping and seeing (he peed in my car) he's eating, I offered him water and he took some.

He's just not himself :-(

Thank you for the kind words, telling my daughter was devastating tbh, my partners outside now digging him a lil grave, everyone's like you can get another one but we dnt want another one we want ralph, just wish I knew what happened? So baffled its untrue he was fine on Monday, jumping around attacking the presents etc!

But yesterday I think I knew, when I took him pets at home he was licking my chest, and cuddling really tight my poor little man so heart broken :-( :-(

The suddenness of it all is awful but at least poor Ralph didn't suffer too long.

Of course we all know you can't just replace him; non-bunny people don't understand.
