    I am glad Bob is stable. We do not have vaccines in NY State because those illnesses are not in this state. I hope Bob does well with his vaccination. You probably have some extra treats for him.
    Dash is much better. The fluids rehydrated the contents of his cecum and he is passing more material and he is very active. He remains on the medication too. I had to go to two different stores to get him his favorite greens and he is eating a lot of them.

    I am so pleased to read that Dash has improved a lot and I hope he remains well and stable for as long as possible xx

    Thanks Jane,

    Dash gets spoiled, so I spoil his littermate, Evan, too. I need Dash to be around, so I know Evan would be lost without his brother.

    [QUOTE=MightyMax;7013350]So good to see this update

    Is he still eating his dandelion greens?[/QUOTE

    This is the second week in a row I went to two different supermarkets to get dandelion greens for my little friends. Dash gets excited whenever I open the refrigerator and he is always begging for more greens as soon as he quickly finishes the ones he got minutes earlier. He is also eating a lot of hay. I weighed him yesterday and his weight is slightly more than his highest weight. He felt a bit full so I am still deciding if it is the first sign he is not passing as much material as he is ingesting or just normal weight. I am leaning toward the former because he feels the same size as before near his ribs.
    I kept Dash on sub Q fluids until two days ago and he is still on cisapride.

    Dash is such a happy bunny when his tummy is not hurting. Two days ago he had some soft poo and, even though his tummy was not bloated, yesterday I could feel gas bubbles when I was rubbing his sides and tummy. He was otherwise active and eating, drinking, pooing. I may have just got a bit too generous when I was giving him his dandelion greens the night before his soft poos.
    When he sees the greens he is so happy he runs toward me, jumps, twirls and practically completes a flip. His name fits him well.

    I am glad to hear that he's doing reasonably well at the moment. It sounds as though he is feeling very bright within himself xx

    I can just visualise this, he sounds like a wonderful little boy

    Thank you Jane and MM for your comments. Dash and his littermate, Evan, have such different personalities. Dash is like a circus performer and Evan just comes to me and quietly begs. They both are good boys who are crazy about their greens, and even their hay. I took Dash off his meds for a couple of days before I felt (thought I felt) extra material in his tummy. He takes his medicine well and tolerates it well; so the only downside is the medicine is not commercially available and needs to be compounded.
