    Four Vet Visits-Help!

    Thank you. He was prone to urine scald had to get butt baths often. And that scared me because I know that a wet rabbit can die. I can't help but wonder if the urine scald must be back and he didn't feel well and went into stasis because of that? I need everybody's input please.

    STASIS QUESTION

    I meant add that he never stopped eating. He loved water and emptied the bowl every day. What made me alert to something was wrong is that he hadn't drunk his water. And throughout his illness which was about two weeks he never would touch water. I did fluids of course and fluids by mouth. He...

    I don't remember if I have asked all of you this question but here it is. Have you ever witnessed a rabbit rallying and you thought he was going to make it but he died?

    Four Vet Visits-Help!

    Thank you everyone. Half of the agony is not knowing what killed him. I just don't understand this. How could he get stasis out of nowhere when he lived in perfect conditions of hay and purified water and greens and everything else? And what I am agonizing over the most is did I delay his...

    STASIS QUESTION

    Is it possible for a rabbit with constant fresh orchard grass hay, always a bowl of purified water, acceptable greens, extremely limited bits of fruit as a treat, and toys, is it possible to get stasis out of nowhere and for no apparent reason? I simply cannot imagine why this happened and my...

    I wish to thank everyone for your kindness and support. My boy passed away this morning. I am devastated. I will bring his sweet ashes home in a few days. He will always have a place in my heart and my family. He is family and always will be. I will bring him home in a few days but just in...

    I just don't understand why he won't drink from his water bowl. Is eating hay but not very much.

    I'm not syringing fluids now. I'm doing subcutaneous fluids under the skin with a needle. I run his greens underwater before giving them to him. Tomorrow he's being anesthetized to get a blood sample. I'm so nervous.

    He won't drink water no matter what. Now I'm doing fluids every day myself. Eats greens and hay. I'm afraid. The vet keeps saying that sometimes recovery from stasis takes time.

    I will soak pellets in purified water and try. He's been licking Criticare from a spoon. Waiting for the vet to call back about the diarrhea. No new greens. Thank you so much.

    Stasis, to the vet three times for fluids, syringing purified water, eats well but only pooping sludge and cecal. Finally appears to be drinking water on his own. Has been on cisapride for the past week. The vet says to get him eating dandelion greens and kale. Is cilantro bad for diarrhea? The...

    Just wanted to say that I appreciate your replies. And to assure everyone that my vet is rabbit savvy as well as briilant. I wouldn't take my rab kids to him if he weren't!!

    I forgot to mention that his arms are deformed. The vet doesn't know if he was born that way or that the arms were broken and never healed properly. He doesn't want to x-ray because a rabbit has to be anesthetized for an x-ray. He walks and hops and stands like if a person was walking on their...
