    Default Dash Stasis-He is gone

    This morning, after I took care of Gemini the head-tilt bunny with an inner ear infection, I went to give Dash fresh hay and noticed he did not eat most of the hay he was given late last night. Upon a closer inspection, Dash only made 3 poos and hardly drank any water too. He was sitting and tummy pressing too. Dash has chronic intestinal issues as noted in my prior posts. For the past few days Dash has been making even more and larger than his usual poos. He normally makes large oval poos, but some in the past few days were even larger ovals and on Monday I saw some larger log shaped poos. At midnight Dash was enjoying some dandelion greens my spouse picked up for him on his way home from work (the usual store did not have any). The rear of his tummy felt a bit firmer than usual so I gave him Cisapride hoping to get ahead of another serious stasis. Prior to that he had eaten hay, peed and produced poo. This morning Dash would not even nibble on Dandelion greens which he normally eats very quickly.

    Before I went to an appointment that I already cancelled once because of Gemini's issues, I gave Dash pain meds, fluids, syringe feed, and motility meds. I even called vet to get approval for higher Medicam dosage to help ease his pain. I also gave him a heat pad under several layers of towel. A few hours later Dash is still not eating and he seems even more bloated/uncomfortable.

    I know Dash survived this level of stasis once before, but so did his littermate Evan who I later lost to stasis in December. I am so afraid Dash will follow in his brother's footsteps and not get better.

    Please send Dash some please poo vibes. Gemini and I could also use some more positive vibes.

    Oh no, you really are having a dreadful time at the moment, I am so sorry that now Dash is poorly again. His comlex GI tract issues and those of his late Brother are very difficult to predict and manage. I know from first hand experience with a similar case Sending millions of vibes for all of you xx

    Thank you all for your good wishes and the links to information.
    Dash and I had some tense hours yesterday, yet after almost 24 hours from when his stasis began, he passed a log like poo that was the length of four or five of his normally large poos and some extra large poos. Even after passing these first poos, he was not wanting to eat on his own. I monitored him until 2:30am when he began to nibble on his greens/hay and he passed a few more poos (smaller than the first). It was not until this morning that he was begging and acting closer to normal. He will continue to get meds to keep him on the tract to recovery. Like his late brother, Dash can go from being fine to being ill within hours. In fact, this is not the first time he made poos that were larger than us usual poos right before he became ill. I was hoping giving him the Cisapride when I saw the change in his output would have prevented this incident; yet he still got very ill--then again he did recover.
