They've admitted him. Bad blockage and gas, going to try and treat it with fluids and meds but if that doesn't work they're opening him up :(

I can't believe this is happening to my very special boy, he's only 2.5 and usually such a bouncy up-to-no-good bunny.

:cry:

Oh no! So sorry to read this.

Update, he has passed some more diarrhoea and isn't eating for himself, they are syringe feeding him but he is drinking for himself from the bowl.

Apparently he has perked up a little, probably the pain relief working

Oh no :cry: I hope Humphrey starts to feel better soon.


Update from the vet this morning is he started eating overnight, and so they are waiting for poo and that will show that the blockage is starting to break down naturally which is what we want. They've also cleaned him up a little as he was a complete mess being completely white with runny diarrhoea everywhere, bless him, and it had started to matt. He's such a clean and tidy bunny normally.

They've said they will ring me at lunch but I have no signal at all at the client today so will have to go for a walk and ring them. I'm not getting my hopes up at all sadly, this seems spookily similar to the events that led to Skye's death, same symptoms and she seemed to improve and was about to be discharged back to me then went downhill v fast at the vets and they couldn't save her. I'm praying Noah doesn't do the same :cry:

Just had another update from one of the nurses - Noah is continuing to eat for himself, and has just passed some more diarrhoea. They've taken him off IV fluids but left his canula in just in case he needs them again.

Got to call again in half an hour to speak to the vet and get her opinion

Not sure yet when he might be coming home. I think they will want to keep him in until he is eating and poo'ing normally again.

Just spoken to the vet, Noah is definitely staying overnight again as they're not happy with his output.

I am going to go and see him later though :)

He will like that :D Are you going to take him goodies and herbs etc, or do the surgery provide them?

Well when Sweep was there (scarily pretty much exactly a year ago) they were picking all sorts for him, so I assume they're doing the same for Noah, but will take some bits just incase :) Apparantly he is 'eating' but whether he is eating like normal is another question (he is such a foodie rabbit).

Sorry for the late update, was quite busy last night

So I went to see Noah last night, he is looking much better, thank goodness. When I got there he was passing normal poo again, albeit a lot smaller than he usually does, but a brilliant improvement :)

Waiting on the vet to contact me, but he's probably coming home later today :D

Some photos from my visit last night, he was still feeling a bit sorry for himself but had a good explore of the room and sat down next to me for nose rubs;

Gosh I love this little (well, quite big actually :lol:) man so much. I really thought I wasn't going to see him again when I first left him at the vets (throwback from Skye, I think :( )

So vet called and although his tummy still doesn't feel 100%, he is eating and pooing normally so they are sending home with meds to finish his treatment tonight. Picking him up at 6 :)

Glad to hear things are heading in the right direction. Eating and pooping fine is all good signs. When he gets back to his home surroundings hopefully he'll continue to improve. 😊

Home and sulking in his hospital cage. He's going to be in that for a couple of days so I can keep an eye on him before he goes back outside

Thanks but luckily I can pop home at lunchtime today, so will go see to him.

This morning he was completely back to normal, poos big and golden again and scoffed his pellet/meds mush, so I'm not overly worried about him anymore, and may even put him back outside today as he looks bored in the hospital cage :)

Noah is now back outside :) I got home from work and he had trashed his cage, and was sat looking so bored, so I put him in the (currently free) side of the kennel.

He then proceeded to barge past my legs twice to get out to the grass :roll:

I think he's better :love:

I was certainly very scared indeed. Scary how fast they can change, fine at mid day when we went out and by 5pm he was ill. Now trying to work out what caused it
