    Default Now Ted's in stasis - Couple of pics of them both 14 Feb

    Got up this morning and Ted's only picked at his breakfast, which he normally hoovers up in seconds. Been to the vet and very few gut sounds, also abdomen feels gassy She said she wanted to go straight for the vetergesic, so gave him a shot of that, and he's also had some zantac. Emeprid due at 12.15 then we'll try a syringe feed which he's awful with, just lets it dribble out. We've got some Ella's Kitchen baby food that we got when Rosie wasn't eating much after her dental but which we didn't use as she'd started eating for herself, so we'll mix a bit of that in. He's got some dandelions and both dried and fresh bramble leaves but he's not interested at the moment.

    We thought we'd completely cracked it, as he's been stasis free since April when previously it had been every few weeks however we suspect this is moult related. He's been doing some poos strung together recently and he's moulting heavily. We've been brushing him and getting lots off but I don't think it's been enough

    I'm sorry that Ted has got stasis again. He's done very well to be free since April and I suspect, like you, that it is fur ingestion that's set it off. I hope that the meds from the vet helps and that you are successful later with getting some syringe feeds into him.

    Sending him lots of get better soon vibes. Hopefully you've caught it early and he will soon start eating again.

    Poor lad. Did the Vet give him any SQ fluids ? If not then I'd try to get some water into him orally even if he wont take a syringe feed. Fluid therapy can make a huge difference when treating gut stasis. Vetergesic can cause extreme drowsiness, but I expect that your Vet warned you about that.

    You have probably already read this but I'll post it again anyway

    Thanks both. The vet didn't give him any fluids. He hasn't touched his water bowl yet today (actually it can be a few days normally before we see him actually drinking, so when he does start eating again we rinse all the herbs, leaves etc in water). He has just taken 9ml syringe feed which is amazing for him as normally he either just dribbles it out or holds it in his mouth, but the vast majority of that he did actually swallow, so he got some water with that. Perhaps it was the Ella's Kitchen that made it more palatable for him. After the feed he jumped in the litter tray and did some very normal poos, about half a dozen, so I think that's a good thing. He's also quite bright and moving round, a bit quieter than normal but not looking uncomfortable.

    Next painkiller (bupracare) due at 4.30 and we'll do another syringe feed then.

    Adding my vibes for a complete recovery for Ted. This is one illness I really wish bunnies did not get, to any degree. xxxx

    Thank you MimzMum and yes I wholeheartedly agree! I'm very sorry for your recent loss of Pip

    I just went in the kitchen and Ted was eating a large bramble leaf so I went to the neighbours garden and got more, and he's eating some (there's a few so I won't expect too much). This is really excellent news as when Ted's been in stasis before it's taken a lot longer than this for him to be interested in eating for himself, so fingers crossed this continues. Vibes still appreciated though! Thank you

    Thank you, martlou. It's been a hard day and I'm exhausted, but yet wide awake, if that makes sense.

    Good to hear Ted is nomming away on some brambles leaves. I had wanted to plant a forage garden here, but not sure what I'd have started with...most everything that was already growing here I've managed to finish off!

    More vibes for Ted's continued recovery. xxxx

    It sounds as though the gas is dispersing and as a result his tummy isn't so sore now Hopefully he will continue to improve over the next few hours xx
