    Haha yea I always think of you saying fluids

    No cisapride yet, but I just spoke to my vet and he's prescribing everything again so we'll be picking up new loxicom, tramadol, emeprid, cisapride and lactulose, which is good

    I'm exhausted but I've been drowning Atticus all night and he's now stuffing hay so that's good! Had a decent amount of output but it's not splats yet, so I know we need to carry on with meds and if we don't he could get worse again tbh. It's getting wetter though so I think it's going in the right direction honestly looking after Atticus is so gross, there's a distinctive smell too but yea I'm hoping he'll keep eating the hay like this, he's really going for it

    Oh, I'm so sorry Atticus has gotten unwell again. Poor boy. Sending him lots and lots of vibes. I'm glad he's eating lots of hay, and that you can pick up more meds at the vets. I hope they'll help him get everything out of his system so he can be more comfortable.

    I'm glad he's eating lots of hay. Hopefully soon you'll have the joy and relief of Atticus-type splats.

    I also hope you and Evelyn soon feel better.

    I'm so glad you got more meds from the vet and that Atticus is out and eating hay. Keep vibrating too much xxxxx

    By the way, how are you, is your pcr test result clear?

    I learn so much from you . My dental bunny,Raven, stopped eating this afternoon so I just updated his thread. I have most meds, yet need fresh cisapride that must be compounded here because no longer on market. I never had lactalose or tamadol for bunnies.
    Is there a benefit to tamadol vs medicam? Less impact on motility?
    What does lactalose do?
    Sending vibes Atticus continues to eat hay and has you soon gagging from stinky splats.

    Oh I hope he's okay, it's awful having sick bunnies

    Cisapride is sometimes hard to get over here I've noticed too, they don't always have it. Tramadol works differently to metacam, but gives extra pain relief so I think that's the reason? I'm not 100% sure, just when we only gave metacam for him he is still in pain, whereas if we give tramadol as well he normally is more comfortable. Also he cannot have Vetergesic, it seems to frighten him.

    Lactulose is actually a human laxative, it's an undigestible sugar I think? It draws water into the gut, so it's soften and rehydrates the contents of the gut, making it easier to pass through you, I'm guessing? Idk if it's really necessary for most stasis cases, I'm no expert, but if my others get stasis I just use emeprid and cisapride and painkillers.. But with Atticus it's weird it's like the contents of his gut is super dry sometimes? He has had several blockages of poop which they can feel, I remember the first time it happened my vet thought it might be a tumour.. But the lactulose seems really good at getting everything rehydrated and moving through him again. Idk if it'd be good or bad for a normal stasis case, but for Atticus I'm convinced it saves his life every time tbh!


    Atticus update, he's been really good all day today, but he sucking in his sides again and now not eating

    It makes sense to add Tamadol for extra pain relief.
    .

    When I had Dash and Evan, like Atticus they got huge masses of poo I could feel in intestines and when I was lucky it moved along until they passed huge poo and recovered.

    I am sending vibes for Atticus. It sounds like his guts are working to move things through. He could not be in better hands

    Yes this is exactly the same thing!

    Thanks for saying that, I feel like he deserves better care tbh I'm stretched pretty thin these days. He's got worse again today, not sure why, nibbling on and off but looking super uncomfortable again, but we've had one bad splat, so I'm hoping this is the beginning of splatfest tbh, that's the best case scenario rn for him.
