Please can I have some spare vibes for both my girls?
Daphne is booked in at the vets tomorrow PM as she's already showing signs of her heart getting worse.
Phoebe this AM has stopped eating so I've had to power walk home from work to dose her on metacam before power walking home.

OH will work from home this AM and I'll take her to the vets after work if she's not eating by then.

Thank you all.

The amazing OH has got Phoebe eating hay again and some brambles.
He's offered to stay home despite her now starting to eat so he can poo watch.

She's booked in at the vets for 4:15pm as it's likely her teeth causing the issue. I am however worried that two vet visits in two days could cause extra stress to Daphne.

I was due a delivery at 4:30 - 5:30 so he's offered to stay home then as well so I don't need to cancel the order.

He is so amazing.

If you're confident that she's eating hay in normal quantities, I would try to get her squeezed in tomorrow.

I'm pleased to read your other update and agree it's so good to have help and support at times like this.

13-02-2018, 11:59 AM
Thank you both.

OH is going to call soon.
We'll see if we can get Daphne in tonight as if Phoebe needs to go back for a dental I'd rather we know that ASAP.
If not we'll see if we can squeeze Phoebe in tomorrow and I'll ensure she's topped up with recovery or critical care.

ETA: They're fully booked both ways so it'll have to be two separate appointments.
Will talk to OH when I finish work and see how Phoebe has been doing.

I just remembered I let them out on the grass yesterday so it's possible she ate too much grass - they've not had it all winter so her tummy might not be used to it.

I've just got home and she is nibbling and eating happily but OH hasn't see any faeces.

I'm giving her until 3:15 - if no poo she will be going to the vets.
If she poos I'm quite happy to keep her home and monitor her.

My poor sensitive girly. Is it the travel or vets she gets upset by? I hope she turns it around quickly

Oh Daphne :( I hope that the meds help her improve quickly.

My rabbits got so stressed when I used to take them to accompany another rabbit, who had a vet appt, that I stopped doing it. It didn't affect their bond and I found that the fact that another rabbit was there didn't appear to help the stress levels of the rabbit with the appt. either.

Oh no, so difficult to know!

I sent my poorly rabbit into hospital with another one. I had to keep the one having had surgery at home. But the well one was quite unphased and just kept eating everything. It was a risk I took ...

Wishing you many vibes and hugs. So stressful :(

Both have eaten this AM and seem bright.

We're going to cancel Daphne's appointment today and rebook for next week.

This was Phoebe last night a couple hours after the vet visit and after she'd stuffed her face with hay.

I'm sorry to bump this up again and I'm sorry I haven't been on for a couple of days.
I'm hoping to get on tonight or during the day to catch up with everything.

However I come begging for vibes again.
Both girls are ill and I'm going to get them both booked in for a thorough check.

So firstly with Daphne it's a check we had planned for last week but canceled due to having to take Phoebe.
Daphne physically appears okay but is craving paper, cardboard etc. So we have had to hide all this that she may possibly reach and I've told OH they get nothing but hay. We've also got to check her heart as she's been showing signs of her heart getting worse.

Onto Phoebe... she refused to come upstairs to bed last night so at 11pm I went out hunting for brambles. She munched those happily but still wouldn't come upstairs. They have hay down there anyway so we put down a bowl of water.

2:30am me and OH woke up so we went down to check on her.... sure enough she is still down there. The front room absolutely stank.... OH described it as smelling like a dirty litter tray.

A bit of hunting and sure enough I found either diahorrea or uneaten caecotrophes that had been smushed around. They were everywhere... middle of the front room, under the dining table, under the piano, under their table that holds the gerbil.

This AM I've found more - they're definately caecotrophes and her normal faeces is tiny and dry but covered in wet stuff.

She's still eating, but she's very skittish... I've chased her upstairs so it's easier to monitor her and I'll be calling the vets once they open to book them both in.

Both are just getting hay and dried forage. They've just been given a fresh willow branch that Daphne has gone mad for.

If anyone has any ideas, or any vibes I'd be grateful.

Sending loads of vibes for both your girls. I haven't really got any worthwhile advice. Regarding Phoebe, I know squashed caecotrophes can occur with stress and the not wanting to go upstairs might be consistent with that, but if her poo is smaller then that would suggest a gut slow down.

Hoping that you can get an appointment and that the vet can establish what the problem is for both of them.

We are currently doing the bathroom which means lots of drilling upstairs next to their room all yesterday... although they could go downstairs as they pleased. She quite happily munched hay in her room during the drilling.

I do think it could be stress related - no bathroom work being done today so hopefully she'll improve.

Thank you everyone for the vibes - they're both booked in for tomorrow PM... vet isn't too concerned as they are both still eating but even if they improve they'll be visiting the vet.

Hi!

So we canceled Phoebe as she's back to 100% so I think you were right about it being stress Omi and the vet agrees with that theory.

The vet couldn't find any reason for Daphne's sneezing so we're just to monitor and if she produces any more discharge upon sneezing to give a call and she'll dispense some antibiotics.

Her heart appears stable and the symptoms were put down to her feeling under the weather and stress.
