    Default Rabbit with bum trouble.

    My bunny Bramble who's nearly eight has had a really rough few weeks
    Round 1
    He wasnt eating properly and very small poos.
    Took him to the vets, had dental (just rough edges), bloods and x-rays. He had a infection and was treated with antibiotics.
    Round 2
    He was not eating or pooing well again. Was put on further antibiotics and gut meds. Now refuses to eat nuggets at all and only eats hay, veg, forage and herbs.
    Round 3
    He now has a partial anal prolapse. It recedes on its own but comes out when going poo. The poor lad is getting poo stuck in his fur around his bottom. Hes a very clean rabbit normally and I can see its upsetting him. My vet is saying at long as it recedes its okay at the moment but to keep a eye on him.
    I'm falling to bits here with the stress of the last three weeks.
    Anyone had this issue and can advise on anything to help him x

    I am sorry to hear of your Rabbit's recent poor health. I think if the rectal prolapse is recurrent and distressing him then it needs treating. Is your Vet Rabbit savvy ? If he/she is reluctant to actively treat the rectal prolapse personally I would want to seek a second opinion from a Rabbit Savvy Vet.

    Sadly he declined massively over the weekend. I got to see my own vet on Monday and together we made the sad decision to let him hop over the bridge x
