View Full Version : I think she's poorly...

24-09-2006, 05:58 PM
I just went in to see Daisy & she wouldn't eat her pellets (she loves them), and wouldn't even take one from my hand. I immediately picked her up & checked her over, couldn't see anything scary so I put her back down & she started stretching out & rolling around. She gets up, hops a bit, then starts stretching and rolling again.

I rubbed her tummy to see if that would hurt, but she just stayed still - this in itself is strange. She jumped in her litter tray at one point but got back out a few minutes later & there was nothing there. I can't tell if she's not pooing cos she's in with another rabbit (Muppet).

Do you think she's ill? If she is I daren't leave her. I tried her on brocolli for the first time this morning (just a tiny piece), has she got wind?

Please help!

I'd say she has. Have you got any Infacol?

No, but I can get some I think. How much should I give her?

Give her a few drops and massage her tummy, that might help. Also try and get her to drink, and tempt her with tasty bits like dandelions. If she doesn't poo get her to vets first thing in the morning.

If your Bun is still showing signs of tummy pain and is not eating /pooping 2-3 HOURS after giving infacol (2ml then repeated after 1 hour)+ tummy rubs I would contact a Vet TONIGHT for advice.

Cauliflower disagrees with Salt and Bobby and they have had the same symptoms. I've done the infacol and tummy rubs and usually after a couple of hours they're back to normal. I try to get some fluids down them as well.
In Bobby's case, he's quite a large bunny, and I can hear and feel the wind shifting around when I rub his tummy.
If she's still not eating after a couple of tries, she really needs to go to the vet as Jane has said.

I agree with Jane. I wouldn't leave it till the morning if there is no pooing or eating.

and where do you buy infacol?
most super markets (eg tescos..etc) have it in the baby section. failing that try boots or your local chemist
