    If anyone wants to see just how cute he and his brother are, they have their own instagram page: Fluffballcity!

    I am just waiting and watching him like a hawk as I want to see him eat something.. Have been syringe feeding him and giving him water with Avipro in it.

    I think I will sleep downstairs with the little dude tonight. His brother is currently giving him kisses.. Aww

    They can stress us out sometimes, can't they?
    I am going through a terrible bunny illness patch at the moment, so I really do empathise.

    Oh bless what delightful little fluffsters

    Hopefully his surgical wound will heal quickly. You are obviously taking great care of him. What meds has he been discharged with ? I would expect him to need some analgesic cover for a few days and maybe some prokinetics (gut motility stimulating) meds.

    How is he doing this morning ?

    Hi everyone

    Thanks again for the lovely posts.

    He has started to pass poos again, his appetite still isn't great which is concerning me a bit. He has meloxicam for painkiller.

    He is currently sat in the sun by the patio door which I'm sure will do him some good.

    I won't relax until I see him chomping hay. I have tried all sorts to get him eating, he did eat done banana last night but not this morning. I am syringe feeding him.

    He is much stronger than last night or I would worry.

    Have you tried offering him some fresh herbs. Coriander is usually very popular. Also, lately my Rabbits are going mad for Cavolo Nero (Black Cabbage). In fact it was the latter which got one of my poorly Bunnies eating again.

    It is still early days after his op' and the fact that he has started to pass some poo is good news

    Oh yes mine are herb fanatics Jack's Jane!

    Have just gone out and bought some spring greens. He looks like he wants to eat it but doesn't have appetite at moment. Also just tried him on banana which he ate a little of last night.

    I just hate syringing as they really don't like it.

    At this point I wouldn't get fixated on him eating hay.
    He can get fibre in other ways, from fresh grass and forage - especially tree leaves

    Readigrass is also a tasty source of fibre, as is fibafirst sticks which some bunnies go crazy for

    I also feed my rabbits rose leaves and herbs such as parsley, dill and coriander - if you break the stalks it releases aromas and so sometimes encourages appetite.

    Hi guys

    Just a quick update on Benny Jr.

    I am pleased you say he has been nibbling on a fresh hawthorn branch with its tasty new leaves, he has eaten some new growth brambles and some hay and dandelion.

    He quite remarkably is leaving his wound alone in the main.

    It's now a waiting game to see what the growth actually is.
