    Your post brought back some memories because I had a bunny who would almost bite the tip of the syringe completely off when I gave him critical care.
    Oh yes, mine bit it off, I was scared he will choke, but he spat it out. It's stress for me and my husband and the bunny to feed him, because he fights as hard as he cans against something he doesn't like. And he doesn't like syringes, but he won't eat critical care by himself. But when I finally manage to put some critical care in his mouth, he chews it like it's a treat. It's all about drama with our little pumpkin.

    Thank you, yesterday evening after having some Ranigast (ranitinide) he ate carrot and some herbs. I was over the moon, but he didn't poop much during night...this morning he also ate a bit of carrot and some grass, but poops are not showing. So it's the main issue now. As soon as poops will show he should get back his appetite..

    Update: he's interested in food today, eating small amounts but frequently, and gives poop! I'm feeling hopeful probably ranigast moved things for better

    This is so nerve wrecking bunny haven't eaten through night and didn't poop. He started to receive Fibreplex yesterday instead of Biolapis, as bio lapis didn't really deliver any changes. He pooped so well yesterday evening I was so happy, and then it is this again...he tried few pellets during the day, but not particularly interested.

    It can be very stressful to nurse an ill bunny back to health. It is not uncommon for stasis/anorexic bunnies to roller coaster up and down before they make a recovery.
    Sending you both some positive vibes.

    Thank you, he's eating more now but not as much as he ate before, and is more active, but still not usual self. His poops are bigger, but I'm worried about their shape, their a bit oval and I've googled it can be a condition - megacolon. But he never showed symptoms before, can it be postoperational? am I worried to much? is this normal poop? maybe it can be from medicine? Our vets are not that exprienced and we do not have many of them who specialises in rabbits. I'm so scared for my baby, I want to make right decisions for him and always questioning myself have I done enough... and it doesn't seem like anyone understands me "it's just a rabbit' they say.
