    Rabbit poops too small and too few

    Alf is my dwarf 2.6lb angora. About 5 days ago we noticed his poops getting smaller. He was still eating and producing 300+ poops a day. 2 days ago his poops decreased to 250 or less, yesterday 230 today 220. Very unusual he has pooped 300+ every day of his life. We noticed 3 days ago he was...

    Thanks for your reply. Well he gets free choice hay. In fact we feed 4 kinds of Oxbow hay plus our own hay when its suitable. He only weighs 2.6 pounds so I've been told that 2 tbsp of pellets is correct. He does get dark green leafy veg. And herbs. He loves dill! And coriander too. I think he...

    I'm actually at the vet right now. Sitting in the car waiting for Alf. No blockage, the did an xray. Saw decal balls in his intestines so that's good. Not dehydrated( I was feeding Critical care this am) couldn't visualize his teeth too well during an exam but suspects thats it. Motility drugs...

    Sorry the appointment was a regular dental trim we book every 12 weeks. I said they postponed (my mistake) - we postponed. I had to cancel the appointment, at that time he was doing best ever in two years. I should have asked some else to take him. I thought he could go another 4 weeks, wrong...

    No they postponed to March 29th. His vet is great but the practice is so busy. There are 7 vets, all exotic. Never fails, he's doing fantastic, we have to postpone then he starts losing his appetite for hay 2 days later. But his weight has stayed the same (or gone up!)and he nibbles hay and eats...

    Alf did great all winter. He gained some weight and had amazing energy. About a month ago he had an appt for a routine dental, no problems his vet just likes to see him every 12 weeks. Well the weather here was crazy snowy slick so I prosponed his check up for 4 weeks, the earliest I could get...

    We call these the Alfie files. I have a notebook page for everyday since his first g.i.mobility emergency. Weights, poops and anything else. Over parenting I know but it's better to look back and see what's been going on.

    An update on Alfie's dental issues

    I had posted on this thread about my dwarf Angora and his dental journey. I wanted to share his progress. In February he'll be 3 years. So many occasions I thought he wouldn't live this long. From his first gastric stasis emergency (always middle of the night) his vet told me he had dental...

    Alf coming home from dental 2 teeth extracted.

    Niome, I'm really sorry to hear about your rabbit who died. Thank you for sharing that difficult experience. I expect to lose Alf before he ever reaches old age. Yes, it's all inbreeding. Unscrupulous people who seek to make money at the expense of sad inbred animals and the people who love...

    Alf coming home from dental 2 teeth extracted.

    Thank you. Yes. I am sceptical by nature but trying to trust Alfies vet. I am wracked by worry about Alfie first, then the cost. She said they don't know how to trim without xrays. So many of my friends have said they wouldn't do all that but when do you just quit on him, just give up? I don't...

    Alf coming home from dental 2 teeth extracted.

    So Alfie went in for his recheck. Everything looks good. Our usual vet saw him. She says that he has dental disease and all we can do is try to get ahead of the abscesses. She is reccomending a look and trim (that means anesthetic) every 8 weeks. Yikes. And include xrays every second trim. I...

    Red bunny pee!

    Bunnies sometimes pee red, or orange or pinkish. Crazy! Don't panic. I called my vet. My rabbits pee is usually amber colour. Lack of any other symptoms, no solids in the pee (blood), I think you're good.

    Thank you Niomi. That's the kind of feedback that is so valuable. Happy Thanksgiving if you are in Canada, elsewhere in the world, I'm thankful for your support.

    Alf coming home from dental 2 teeth extracted.

    Alfie seems to be recovering, I'm still feeding him 2-3 x day but he is eating a little hay and his regular pellets. I have a new question? The vet wants to do a re-check. I understand that and they have to anesthetize to properly check. But the vet also wants to do another set of 4 xrays. In...
