    Default Fleur not herself :(

    So yesterday she had been building tunnels in her hay, made a whole little system, honestly it was very impressive. She had been doing this ever since the snow, and I'd been giving her snugglesafes because her ears felt a little cool. Once she got on the snugglesafe she warmed up so wasn't too worried about her. But yesterdays tunnels were more intricate anyway she's extremely attached to me so her not popping her head out and saying hi was weird, then I called her name (which she knows and always comes to) no movement. I shake the treat tin... Nothing...

    So I left her for a bit and then came back she was happier to see me again but didn't want a treat... Which has never happened before... This really worried me. I then offered her some dry apple which she ate then a different type of hard treat which she also ate, but she'd left her breakfast. I'm wondering if it's her teeth? :S

    She did eventually eat her small amount of pellets it took her all day though. She hasn't drank much over night. She's had a tiny bit of her pellets today, but still isn't interested in treats. Her output is less.. But okay - she's also eating hay (not sure how much because she converts everything into a tunnel, but I have seen her eating hay)

    So straight to the vet? See how she goes a bit more? I don't wanna take her to the vet unless it's needed because she she's very upset in the vets (I know most bunnies do - but she gets vocal) she's actually the weirdest rabbit I've ever encountered but yea opinions/advice appreciated x

    her tunnelling sounds adorable

    I agree it sounds dental. Can you try her on something easier to eat? Herbs, grass, chopped veggies? I'm afraid I'd take her to the vet asap, just so she's not in full stasis should she need admitting for GA & dental. Loads of vibes x

    As whatever is causing Fleur's issues has lasted more than a few hours, I personally would take her to the vet today to be examined. It sounds like it could be a dental issue, but Rex rabbits are not usual sufferers, because of their head shape. As her output is less, she is obviously not eating as much as normal and I would want to find out why that was before it became more serious.

    Thanks both got an appointment for this evening - I know its the right thing to do - she has the rex coat, but I don't actually know where she came from... So maybe she's a mix that got the rex fur? I don't know how breeding works honestly. When I got my other two the breeder mentioned they shouldn't have issues with their teeth, forget the reason he gave..

    I'm really sorry Fleur isn't herself I think you're doing the right thing getting her seen by the vet today. I'm a great believer in getting any potential stasis episodes nipped in the bud as quickly as possible.

    Good luck for the appointment x

    Thanks yea I was just hoping she'd improve if she'd stopped eating I would've taken her yesterday, but she ate all her veggies and stuff it was just the harder foods she didn't seem interested in - hopefully the vet will be able to have a look at her teeth or work out what's up x

    Oh Grace - bun problems again!

    Hope all goes well this evening. To be honest, I think you're right to nip it in the bud. I would do the same

    Yea, was hoping for more of a break from the bun issues

    She's eaten her breakfast pellets, which is good, but she's not drinking really, Idk whether to syringe her some water, offer her something in some water that smells and tastes nice or just wait til vet sees her tbh
