    Either way, I am glad they are both home and hopefully by now completely comfortable again! xxxxx

    I've found that when my bunnies have started to recover from a stasis episode the poos tend to be smaller than normal at first which makes it easier to differentiate their poos from their friend's.

    You are right, I have smaller size poops last night and this morning

    Good update. It is good to know others monitor poo so closely too.

    Sorry everyone, I have a question. Millie is doing much better. How long should I be giving metacam for? The vet said 5 days twice daily but seems a bit much if she has recovered? I'm going to give it to her tonight. Thoughts? P.s Millie is on 10kg two times daily. Xx

    I play by ear normally.

    If she's still OK in the morning you could monitor her and only give it if she appears to be getting worse again provided you can keep an eye on her.

    To avert disaster, I usually give it for 2/3 days and then observe, and possibly tail off if all is going well

    I'd check with the Vet again if possible. He/she may suggest tapering off the treatment rather than just stopping. Generally speaking though it is usually best to only give Metacam when really needed, especially if it is the higher dose range that is given.

    As I said though, do check with your Vet first
