Any vets on here? Need Help With Rabbit.

My rabbit isn't too well. He's running around but not eating at all. He'll run into a corner and sit there and not notice anything which is unlike him.

His stomach keeps gargling probably because he hasn't ate anything.

My mum gave him some bread, water and milk like the vet said he should and he's just only drinking the milk and water.

Any ideas what it could be?

I dont want to be the bearer of bad news, but my friend had a rabbit, and he had the exact same thing happen to his rabbit. It died a week later. I hope thats not the case with yours.
#2
Sorry I don't know why bunny is being like that, maybe she is in pain?

I know that it is very bad for a rabbit to not eat though so you should try and get her to a vet ASAP.

Is there anything sweet she particularly likes - banana for example? Or some parsley?

Wish you all the best

I asked for help on here with my rabbit last week and there didn't seem to be any vets on here.
can you phone your vet today? SHouldn't be left till tomorrow

Sorry to hear your rabbit is poorly. I take it you've taken it to the vet? Are her teeth OK? Common problem with rabbits, can make it difficult/impossible for a rabbit to eat. Poor thing, hope your rabbit gets well soon. But not to scare you, rabbits can go downhill fast :(

P.S: Milk for a rabbit? Is that OK for it to have? Must be if the vet says so I suppose....

We haven't taken it to the vets. Teeth were perfect when he had his injection a month ago and the vet did a check on him.

My mum seems to remember the fact that you can give them milk and bread but I thought that you cannot give rabbits dairy? can someone clear that up for me?

We don't want to take it to the vets yet, he seems happy, he's drinking but not eating, were going to see what he is like this afternoon.

It's worth taking him for a check over if he's not eating as although you had him checked over last month, in that space of time it's possible that maybe something has happened with his back teeth, or maybe he's even got an abcess.

I know the common thing is that rabbits need their front teeth clipping, but my rabbits back teeth also needed doing monthly so maybe his are causing him a bit of bother?

From reading on Google I would say that you shouldn't give him milk

Also found
How do I know if there is a problem? Rabbits normally eat frequently throughout the day. If your rabbit does not eat for 4-6 hours - if there is ANY change in your rabbit’s normal eating habits - contact your vet immediately


When did bunny last eat anything? With rabbits, it's not like they can just not feel like eating one day and then go back to normal, they need to eat very regularly or their digestive system shuts down.

When my rabbit had an operation on an abscess on her jaw, the vet gave me some vitamin stuff and told me that I must give it to he if she still hasn't eaten 2 hours after I get her home or she will be in trouble

She's fine at the moment, thanks.

She has had her front teeth taken out in the hope that her back teeth will now be able to grind themselves down and had her abscess taken out (on her jaw, caused by teeth problem)

She came home and ate straightaway and is perfectly back to normal :thumbsup:

Just got to take her for a check up next week, am really hoping that's the end of her teeth problems
#22
Sorry did you say your rabbit is able to drink water? If you can hear her belly gurgling she is hungry, so i would liquidize some food like you do for a child. and put it in a dish and see if she has it. Its worth a try. Make it nice and runny so the rabbit doesnt have to chew, incase it is teeth pain.That way shes getting nutrients in her.
#23
i havent read all the replies. But this could be something called stasis.

Basically the rabbit is not well, and refuses to eat. the noise from his belly is the intestines grumbling because of gases.

Right, here is what you need to do. Go to the vet and advise it is GI Stasis, they will have to keep him in because he will need painkillers and to be force fed. Then after a few days he should start eating all being well.

This is a serious problem and usually kills the rabbit if it is not sorted out very quickly. Vet costs around the £100 / 200 mark with this kind of thing, depending on how long he stays in for.

If you cant afford it, try to find a local PDSA and ask for their help but make a donation. This is serous so please get it sorted ASAP. If your rabbit is outside he will prob need to stay inside for a few weeks till he is better.
#24
Have you changed the bunny's diet recently?

As even a change from one rabbit food to another should be done slowly, as a rabbits digestive system is delicate. Pineapple is great for there digestion. I have seen it many times when people but a rabbit from a pet shop take him home and feed him something totally different. You then end up with digestive problems.

If you can get hold of it, papaya or mango is also good for the digestion. Vet told me this ages ago, can be tinned but in juice not syrup.

Thanks everyone for your posts. We still didn't know what was wrong with him but he's absoultly 100% fine. Saves losing money on the vets. If you wait a couple of minutes he saw thanks himself!!!!!
