Thank you for help!

    I would revisit the vet if she's still not eating after 5 days. She may need antibiotics.

    How happy are you with your vet?

    i took her to the vet today, he give her pain meds and metaclopramide. She weights 2000g now, 2 months ago she was 2850g, she is now under weight yet but rapid loss is the problem i asked about xray but they dont do that in my city i would have to take her to the other part of the country :/ i will do it if needed but i dont know how she will react on driving so long. She is more active today and goes eating little hay every once i a while and her poop are a bit bigger. Vet said i should force feed her couple times a day and let her try to eat alone when she is hungy. he also said it could take he 14 days to get back to normal since rabbits are not common pets in here and most die before they are 5 years old , was vet surprised that she is over 5 years old and taken care so good. we are fist familiy that brought bunny back for treatment everyday and we still do and she is best managed rabbit in his work history now i have to wait and see how she is going to act
    I roderd Oxbow essentials food and all support tablets oxbow i could find online.

    I do hope that your Rabbit will show some signs of improvement. Would the Vet you can get to be able to run a full blood profile to see check on your Rabbit's Kidney/Liver function, amongst other things ?

    You are obviously doing all you can to try to help your Rabbit, despite the fact that access to Rabbit Specific Veterinary care is extremely limited in your location.

    I ask about xray and blood test, he said that we sould wait a little bit and see if she gets better with eating, i honestly dont know if they do blood test on rabbits. I dont know. i have a feeling that he is really trying to help me and Nana, i can be really annoying pet owner since i know something about my bunny but he really is trying to find the best thing he can do, but yes stuff a very limited for bunnys (food, vets ets...) here and it make me so sad because bunnys are best pets you can get and i would never change Nana even is she is's having more health problem then my 11 years old dog.
    but yes most pet rabbits here in Slovenia live 3years most 4. people dont buy special food because is expencive, they live in cages, they are not spayed, i mean its sad. Sometimes i get so angry when i listen people how they rabbits live. My bunny owns 100m2 house that is customize for her safety and needs, i buy her best food online that can be shipped in my country, i take her to the vet everytime she is not well for 12h.

    i have a question, my vet said i should buy hemp oil and give some drops in her food? Does anyone have any experience with it?

    Thank you!!!

    That's a wonderful accolade - you must be the best bunny owner in Slovenia. It must be very frustrating finding it so difficult to access all the vet care that we in the UK take for granted. Its great news Nana is eating a little better - I really hope that continues. Sending lots of get well wishes

    Your vet is quite right, it can take 2 weeks for a rabbit to get back to normal. My rabbit recently (we never found the cause) was being syringe fed for more than 2 weeks as there was no other way.


    Since I'm not sure whether a urinary tract infection has been excluded, I wonder whether a urine test might be appropriate? Sometimes just a dipstick test (very simple) but sometimes sent off to the lab (expensive). I have had cases where a rabbit with a UTI doesn't respond to one antibiotic but will respond to another one. Also, give a long enough course - at least 10 days and preferable two weeks plus.

    Sending lots of vibes for Nana. She is certainly a lucky Slovenian rabbit to have you as her owner and I hope that with your help she will improve soon.

    I was just wondering whether you live close to the border, which would mean it would be closer to go to a vet in say Austria.
