    Re Atticus's eye, he probably has/had a bit of Rex fur in it and that has caused a mild irritation around the tear duct. So extra tears/gloop can occur. Rex Rabbits in moult often get runny/gloopy eye(s). Rabbits who have been very poorly may go on to have a heavy moult.Just gently bathe the eye with some cooled boiled water for now. From the image there does not appear to be any signs of infection. But I know that you will keep an eye out for that ( no pun intended!)
    Yea it's exactly like that, I remember at the beginning of the megacolon saga I read about certain forage that could help or was good for this certain thing etc, and every single one made him so sick and other things that I kept say to avoid were okay, it's so tricky to judge! This morning there's some oval golden poops!!! also some messes and splats tho real mixed bag, but I'll take it, he's eating a lot more hay now too

    Ah okay, yea I'll keep a very close eye () on it, can always take him to the vets if it doesn't go or looks worse, I'll bathe it too kinda wondering if buns can get things like that from being run down? A bit like people? I mean he's really been through it and he's quite a delicate rabbit.

    Thanks doesn't feel like it though, just feels like I've waded through a bad situation but I'm so glad Atticus is still here, it really did look so bad I was convinced I'd lose him also now am in awe of veterinary nurses, I don't think I could hack that job, very intense and exhausting! Also thankful all his ear catheters worked okay, and I didn't have to do sq fluids, like I do for my other bun, Atticus is so skinny there's not much to grab, and I bet he wouldn't have sat still

    I was worried you would lose him too, though that may have been because I lost Dash under similar circumstances at the end of september, and his twin, Evan, 11 months ago. The one difference is my boys were very small, 0.75 kg. Dash was always slightly thin,even for his small bone structure. He ate more hay and greens than bunnies three times his size, and his poos were large ovals. Evan was more compact and he had normal poos that were small like he was when he was not having another stasis episode. I still wonder why they did not recover like they did before. Then I remind myself that both were sick when I picked them up and they would not have survived their first illness with average care. I miss them both, and would gladly give them round the clock,sleep deprived care,if they did not leave for the bridge.
    This is why I am so glad you were able to save Aticus. Results do not lie. You did wonderful.
    Also IV fluids are best for very ill bunnies, because they not absorbe sub q quick enough. Plus, you are right about sub q with a skinny bunny.

    Is Atticus back to being himself, eating lots of hay and making lots of nice poo?
