    I have spoken to Bertie's vet who thinks it is best for him not to go in for the fluids as the stress could set him back. I am to continue with the watery syringe feeds and encouraging him to drink from his bowl and bottle.

    Glad you asked. You may try syringing water too.I think Jane suggested too. Can you float any greens or herbs in a second bowl to encourage drinking? I hear Jane gives lord H peppermint tea too,just a thought.

    Vibes on the way for wee Bertie. I'll second the peppermint tea if he'll tolerate it. We had something like that for my bunnies that helped in stasis episodes.

    Hope he feels better soon. xxxx

    Bertie is now troughing for Scotland! He snacked most of the afternoon then begged for his tea. I am supposed to continue syringe feeds but when this was recommended he wasn't back to eating pellets. Now he is, and even hay. I have tried floating greens in a water bowl, which he does eat although he seemed perplexed at first.

    Bertie is now eating well but his poos are tiny! He is currently stuffing his face with hay so I expect output will improve soon.

    Wonderful update. Once he rehydrates his poo will be easier to move through.
    Eating is always a good sign, though I hope he will give more output later today . Try to get some rest as you must be exhausted.
