    Default Gemini now has head tile please send positive vibes

    Gemini has had some ups and downs in the past year. He had three dentals and two incidents of head tilt. He also has been drinking more than I would expect for a bunny his size and he was peeing outside the litterbox much more. His last head tilt incident was in late January 2019, about a week after his dental. He got prompt treatment for an ear infection and he recovered well. When he went for the dental, I asked the vet to test his urine but Gemini was voiding his bladder and contaminating the sample with feces before they could get a good sample. After his head tilt he was doing well so I put aside my concerns about his drinking and peeing.
    Two weeks ago he was passing a lot of smelly poo clusters that I suspected were excess cecals in the morning and he also produced normal fecal material.
    On Friday night I gave him more greens than usual (carrot tops and dandelions) because he was not eating as many of his pellets or hay. My other boy needed a dental much sooner than I expected, so I was thinking I should schedule Gemini for a dental too.
    Saturday morning he passed a pile of poo with a soft pasty consistency and a strong smell. I cleaned him up a little (trying to not stress him) and gave him some sub Q fluids. He passed some small, less fiber fecals later in the day so I began critical care.
    On Sunday I continued the sub Q fluids and critical care and gave him some medicam. His poo is a bit larger, but still smaller than his usual size.
    After receiving fluids, he drank some water on his own and he is nibbling very little hay and slowly eating some greens.
    My biggest concern is that some of the sub Q fluids I gave him earlier are still hanging on his underside.
    He is only five years old and I am very worried Tomorrow is my regular vets surgery day so I know he will not be available most of the day.
    Please send me and my friendly, loving Gemini some positive vibes.
