I can't believe it! I really thought that cutting fresh foods out of his diet had fixed his tummy problem...... but no, I was with the emergency et at 9pm last night. :?

He was fine when he had his tea at 5pm, but by 8 I could tell he wasn't right. I phoned, and the vet said to bring him now, rather than wait until this morning. Glad I did.... he's back to his usual bouncy, poo-ing self this morning. I always feel that I'm being a bit of a hyperchondriac with him, but better be safe than sorry I guess.

Anyway, the vet is going to give me some metchlopramide & painkillers and teach me how to inject him myself this afternoon. :shock: I'll be glad of having the reassurance of the drugs to hand, but I'm petrified of hurting him. Any advice?

Awwwwwww - poor Evo - he is certainly testing his mum at the mo! - but glad he's better this morning - you must feel like your on a Roller Coaster !

Not much help re the injection advice and hurting etc as I've not had to do this kinda thing (She says touching wood!!) but I'm sure your Vet will give you some good tips and the other Forum Folk - but it will be good for you to have medication on hand that you can give instantly you see a problem with little Evo - I think its great that Vets are becoming more open to us Bunny Mums having medication on hand if our bunns have a reoccuring problem like this.

Snuggles and Nose Rubs to Evo - hope he's o.k.

I was lucky that the emergency vet last night was the lovely one that has house buns of her own. :D She always seems a bit more interested and entusiastic about bunny treatment than the other vets in the practice.

Don't worry about injecting, you will only have to inject under the skin which your vet will show you how to do but it will not hurt. Main thing is be brave, if you are gently gently then they know something is going to happen.

All was going ok with the practising, until I answered the door to a double glazing salesman with a syringe in my hand! The look on his face! :lol: :oops:

Awwww poor Evo again! and poor you! Was it a blockage again??
My fluffball has had a few episodes of being lethargic and no eating/pooping but as soon as i see this i syringe as much pineapple juice into him as i can and give him lots of dried grass. He seems to perk up within 6-8hrs and so far has worked.

Oh and btw.. us human nurses have to practice injecting oranges before we get near real people!! no idea quite why they choose oranges tho.. think a peach would be more realistic..
Good luck with evo.. hope he stays well now.

He's still very quiet, but eating and pooing. It doesn't normally taking him this long to bounce back. :(

I'll still take him to the vets, if they're open. But it's nice to have the reassurance that the drugs are there if we need them in an emergency.

Hi Laura - any update on Evo yet ?

When I saw this title I was hoping it was an old one that had resurfaced :?

Hope he's feeling better.

Sorry! :oops:

Evo's a bit better today, poos looking a bit more normal....and he's eating without so much coaxing (wallpaper included :shock: ). He's still not himself though, like he's very tired, although he did chase me up and down the hallway for a treat last night. :D
