    Thanks for your posts. H is a very greedy rabbit and I would say she has no problems with tooth roots and definitely none with eating! As a consequence I don't think she needs supplements. As I said in my last post the vet says she is generally in very good health.
    Re hay, the vet s idea is to ensure that hay remains the main part of the diet.
    Just finished the Emeprid prescription so waiting to see what happens with the poops. If they start to become small again I'll put her back on Infacol and accept she has a 'condition '

    Just to update on Jazz my cat; after an abortive attempt at bloods, (she's very wilful) a further vet visit with sedation, bloods now taken successfully and x rays show she has arthritis, but no kidney problems So safely onto the metacam I have arthritis myself so we can further bond

    Sorry to hear that you and Jazz have arthritis.

    Yes, it's good to know that Infacol can be given freely as and when it's needed.
    I hope you won't need to keep dosing though, and things get better for her

    Hi MMAx
    Another update. Harriet's poops are MAINLY the right size. Initial panic when I spotted a few small ones, ( though she sometimes had the odd small ones in the past ) but they are few and far between. So I've resisted the Infacol, it's now 4 days since the Emeprid finished. So feeling cautiously optimistic though I've replenished the supply of Infacol Incase I need it
    I saw your post about brambles so am slowly reintroducing them. They used to have it in the past.
    I had another think about the link you gave me re pineapple leaves and have stopped offering them, it doesn't seem worth the risk.
    I will look again about pineapples and their enzymes generally and hope to find the next most suitable i.e. fresh, tinned (washed free of sugar juice) and actual pineapple juice. I'll also trawl through the posts on the forum for members experience with the fruit.
    Thanks again for your support with H, she and I both thank you.

    Hi rosaleen and thank you for the update

    Yes, brambles are really good for digestion and good poops

    I am happy to help wherever I can rosaleen.
    I hope Harriet comes along and stops worrying you x

    Hi Max

    Hopefully my last update.

    Harriet has continued to produce the right size poops for nearly a week now, so I am both very pleased and relieved.

    I still feel guilty giving them 'only' hay after 5pm, but reading somewhere on here about the correct quantity for greens etc is two cups a day I've realised I was giving them far too many, which probably hadn't helped the situation.

    Apart from the hay, I religiously spray all their food with water to increase their fluid intake as advised by the vet, including their two eggcupfuls of pellets. I think this is having a positive effect as well.

    Hi Rosaleen

    Sorry not to have replied sooner, but good to hear that his poops are getting better

    I hope things continue to improve, and please don't be a stranger

    Hi Max
    Apologies for not replying sooner but the broadband has been on and off for days now plus thecpassword that was given to me by the rabbit forum is impossible to remember as it's so random. I got in touch with the forum and have asked if I can change it but didn't receive any reply. Plus i can never find my password sheet to find the one for the forum so it all gets a bit long winded when I want to post anything
    anyway thanks so much for all your and others posts they have literally been life savers.
    Harriet and BeBe are both doing well
