    When you say that Mr Waffle has an 'upset tum' do you mean that he has actual diarrhoea ? Or do you mean that he has stopped eating and pooing -ie 'Gut Stasis' ?

    Has your Vet got a lot of experience in treating Rabbits ? Whilst some Vets may be excellent regarding their knowledge about other domestic pets they may lack in depth knowledge of 'Exotics', in Veterinary Medicine Rabbits are classified as 'Exotics'.

    If your Rabbit has diarrhoea, is still not eating or moving then he really needs to be hospitalised. He would need fluids via IV and also IV medication. He would probably need to be in an incubator too as he could be struggling to maintain his body temperature.

    If he has 'Gut Stasis' then the Vet needs to have established whether or not he has a full GI tract obstruction. Diagnostics would include a blood glucose test ( a high blood glucose level is indicative of a GI tract obstruction) and also an abdominal Xray.

    Given that he has also spent time in the Rescue the chance of him contracting coccidiosis cannot be ruled out.

    These links may be useful to read, but personally I would want Mr Waffles to be seen by a 'Rabbit Savvy' Vet ASAP today

    If you are in the UK and you are not sure how Rabbit Savvy your Vet is you could start another thread in 'Rabbit Chat' asking for 'Rabbit Savvy Vet Recommendations' in your area.

    Or you could have a search on here :

    Good luck and I do hope that Mr Waffle will soon be feeling a lot better x
    Mr waffle unfortunately passed away last night. Took him to the vets again as he had gone down hill very quickly Friday afternoon and he was due back this morning to be put to sleep. I wanted to do everything possible so instead of having him in the vets over night on his own I agreed to syringe him water every 20 minutes throughout the night but 20 Minutes after we arrived home he died snuggled in my lap in the living room. Was incredibly sad and very hard to watch. He didn't make any noise. Just went. The vet didn't think he was in pain and said I couldn't have done anymore but I can't help feeling like I could have. Didn't know how much I loved him until the past 10 days. I would have done anything to make him better. My poor waffie :-(

    Oh I am so very sorry. Mr Waffle will have found great comfort from you and I really dont think that you could have done any more for him. He was obviously a very sick Bunny

    RIP Mr Waffle xx
