    Default my newly adopted bun's poo level has dropped drastically

    I am facing a situation that I haven't never seen before. My bun Fudgie, adopted on Sat. evening and Sun. the whole day, his poos level is average, but there are about 3 dozen poo on the floor. But since Monday morning to Mon. at midnight, there is only 4 piece of poo, and they are somewhat smaller than the big ones he was unloading yesterday

    But he's full of energy and there are at least 4 urine spots. And he's eating everything, 2 slice of banana, pellets (new type Oxbow + his old type Martin ), carrot.

    And he's busy hopping around.

    The only possible guess is, because of Martin pellet, he doesn't eat enough hay. So in the past 2 days, he is still a pellet junkie, so I give him 3 to 4 servings of his Martin + my new Oxbow pellets. The Oxbow encourage him to eat hay. It's possible his stomach is too sensitive for the new Oxbow, in other words, I 'm switching over too fast

    I can't think of any other possiblity. And yet he has no other sign of any sort of GI stasis. In other words, if you don't look at his poo level, he would be 100% perfectly normal

    anyone has any idea? His vet appt. is on Wed.

    Fudgie has had a lot of stress over recent days Jason, a move to a new home, a fight with another Rabbit. So some changes in GI tract motility is not really surprising. Hopefully with time and a good hay based diet his output will return to normal xx

    Poo has returned to normal. He's on a pure hay diet for the past 2 days, I plan to give him 1 more day of pure timothy hay diet, then move back to a small amt. of pellet

    P.S. what do you think of the name Fudgie? it's a goofy name, isn't it?

    Glad to hear that his output is back to normal.

    It's only right that Fudgie should have a 'goofy' name, in memory of Goofball
