    I am glad to hear that he is stable at the moment. He's lucky to have you to care for him

    So glad to hear this update. Maintaining weight is sometimes an ongoing battle - he's lucky to have you fighting with him

    Thanks Jane. He is eating his greens and some hay, but it looks like he may be eating only half of his normal amount of pellets. I plan on giving him a lot of extra greens to keep his guts hydrated and moving. I don't want to give motility drugs until he actually needs them.

    I am glad I got the scale. It revealed my spouse was sneaking one of my other bunnies extra pellets. At least my spouse honored my request that Gemini not get anything I do not know about so I can tell how much of his greens/hay or pellets he is eating and if he is drinking enough for his guts to stay adequately hydrated.

    Gemini was eating about a quarter less over the last couple days so I decided to give him a dose of motility drugs. He is stilling eating his hay and greens. I have more greens washed and ready to give him after he eats most of the latest batch. With his dental issues, he is a slow eater even with Medicam, so the greens get wilted if I give him too many at once.
    It does not look like he will finish this moult quickly; so I will have to be vigilant with his output/input for a while longer.

    He is moulting less and stable so I was able to stop motility edrugs and sub q fluids.
    He is eating what is normal for him. Tomorrow he will be weighed .
