    Hello

    I am sorry to hear of your Bunny's tummy troubles. Can you let us know exactly what his daily diet comprises of ? Also, does he drink enough water ? Is his urine ever a bit creamy coloured/sludgy ?

    Is he maintaining his weight ?

    Sorry for all the questions, but a bit more detailed information may help us offer you some advice xx

    Thanks for your attention and your help.
    iam giving him alpha alpha hey( i am living in the iran and because of the sanctions i couldent find timothy hey in our countary)
    i am giving him just a little carrot or parsley 3 or 4 times a week.
    i gave him pallet but the vet said through out it away, because its just commercial advertisment for the companies and it is dengrous for rabbits!
    In all the day he has a lot of fresh and cold water and i change his bottle five to six times a day
    the vet check his urinary tract and found noting, his urine is yellow and dont chang and when he didnt eat he just drunk water.
    His weight is 2.300 kg, and he isn't loosing weight but in my hand i feel he is being a little slim.
    Iam general practitioner and in the morning i gave him probiotic drop (in my own prescribe) which i give to children, now i see he is eating, i think he had bloating or somthing like that, do you have a suggestion for pervention from this situation ?
    In my countery nobody cares about rabbits as a pet and usually they have cats or dogs so i couldnt find poeple who is specialized in rabiits.
    My mother tounge is not english so iam sorry if i have grammetical mistake .

    You mention giving a lot of fresh cold water. Is it hot in your room?
    How much carrot do you give him? The orange carrot may be too sweet for some bunnies. Carrot greens are better.
    Some bunnies get gas from certain foods and gas can be painful.
    You may want to try adding different greens to his diet.
    Your bunny is very cute.

    i take the temprature between 25 to 30 ć , now here its autumn and weather is very cold but i think he liked cold water( not freezing just cold).
    I give him one little carrot but its orange thank you for suggestion.
    But these month i dont change his diet and he always eat this recepies could suddenly rabbits be sensitive ?
    before i am moving here he is so healthy and happy and we were together whole day , but now i think he dont like my room and its small for him and my family dont let him out, and always i have to going library, could stress get him sick?
    My mother and my sis playing with him and chek him all the day but i couldnt be there .
    I have another femal rabbit she is healthy and happy and dont change here mood and dont sick too.
    Do you have suggestion for decrease his stress?
    4 month later when i will take my exam iam going to moving from here and every thing will back to normal but now he cant comperhend my situation
    Thank you very much, i love him and i cant tolerate his suffering.

    I'm really sorry to read that your bunny is having tummy problems.

    I agree with Bunny momma that it might be worth changing his greens to see if that will help. Some bunnies have quite sensitive tummies and don't tolerate certain greens too well. So, I would stop giving the carrots to start off. Herbs are supposed to be gentle on a rabbit's stomach so you should be ok to carry on giving him parsley. If you can get them other good herbs would be dill (supposed to be good for preventing gas), basil, coriander, rosemary and thyme.

    I would give him some pellets if he likes them. Are they specially for rabbits? Most people feed their rabbits pellets as they have all the Vitamins and Minerals the rabbit needs. You mention grass so that would be good for him and the Alfafa hay, good for his teeth and tummy. A little bit of Parsley, not a lot as it is high in Calcium.

    You may want to give your bunny a place to hide when he is stressed. An inverted cardboard box with an opening cut in one or two sides may be good.
    Also, could female bunny be territorial and causing him stress? This is more likely if she is not spayed.
