    Default Diet suggestions for gassy bunny

    Hi all,
    Freddie keeps getting gas and after bloods and an x-ray the vet (rabbit savvy) still doesnít know whatís causing it. So far I have tried:
    Science Selective (initially thought this was the cause), Burgess Excel pellets, FibaFirst, Vetcare Digestive Plus and Oxbow essentials and he is still getting gas. Iíve only given him tiny quantities (about 5 pellets or 1/4 of a stick) but all are having the same effect. Heís munching down plenty of meadow hay and has some readigrass. Heís also drinking lots and I occasionally put probiotic powder in that too. Iíve cut out veggies other than a small piece of romaine as a means of getting Infacol into him. His gas seems to be on and off throughout the day and I canít pinpoint whatís causing it. I have also stopped using the Back2Nature litter in case he was eating it but thereís been no improvement.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated, Iím desperate for Freddie to be pain-free for at least 24 hours at a time.

    There are some interesting points in Loobers' thread. From what has been said there and because it doesn't seem to be having any effect for your rabbit, I would stop using the Infacol, but of course it is up to you.

    I have just read your comments in Loober's post regarding your rabbit drinking 4 bowlsful of water per day so have put it here on your post in case anyone else reads it. Good luck with bunny. As I said in the other post, is it possible to get him to the Vets today?
