    If a vet has said she has stasis she will need small but frequent feeds. Has she seen a vet yet? She may need a quick injection of metaclop to get things moving, and in my experience faster action is best. I hope she gets better soon...it can be very stressful syringe feeding buns. One of my fosters recently had a two week spell of stasis where we syringe fed her every couple of hours every day! I was exhausted, but i was determined not to lose her.

    ive not mixed a whole packet because i usually end up throwing it all away

    i think my vets aim for 20ml every two hours, i personally havent mastered syringe feeds yet, but i am now prepared with my huge 20ml syringe.

    hope shes better soon xxxx

    I'm concerned. Am I right that the vet found her teeth OK & no particular cause for her weight loss?
    I'd really want her re - examined tonight, to exclude an obstruction (blockage) & on a full "stasis" regime of pain relief, motility agents etc.

    I syringe feed Snow with a 50ml syringe! My vets didnt have any 20mls left so had to give me a 50, it worked in the end, jsut had to do it really slowy so I didnt squirt too much into her mouth!

    she saw a vet today but that was for her E.C/weightloss wasnt it, not stasis? (correct me if im wrong )
