    This is Betsy, her head just out of the pellet box. As you can see, she’s not a rabbit who takes kindly to being denied food

    Hope that didn’t come across as know-it-all-y! There is plenty that I don’t know of course, I just didn’t want anyone worrying that I was going to do damage by swapping diets or anything drastic! xx

    It certainly didn't to me

    Anyone who Panacurs a new entry for 28 days is either very brave or knows their stuff

    Apologies again for these disgusting photos. But I saw the ‘stuff’ being deposited this evening. It isn’t diarrhoea, it’s literally water (brown water) and it’s when she does her perfectly formed normal poos Seeing it quite literally drip from her did worry me. So much so I considered the emergency vets (where I had arrived back from 30 seconds earlier with someone else!), but clearly this is how/what has been happening each time, I’ve just never witnessed it. She’s fine in herself still, poor girl. But we’ll definitely be ringing the vets as soon as they open tomorrow

    Would you be able to get a sample to take to the vet?

    Sorry you're going through this, but please let me know what your vet thinks as I have a bunny with a similar issue.

    It's different from what I can tell but definitely have experienced the puddles of poo liquid

    It could be spurious diarrhoea AKA 'overflow diarrhoea'

    I think you are wise to be consulting the Vet today. Good luck

    She’s had bloods and I’ll be dropping a sample in once I obtain one, of both her normal poo and of the liquid if I can manage to get it into a pot. Could of course be a number of causes, but we will see where we go from here. Bloods back on Tues x
