    Lego's not feeling well. Help?

    I want to thank you all again so much... your words help me to get thru this. I think since we all love our fur-kids soo much you can understand the worry (over did I do the right thing questions) and sadness (that I will no longer be able to pet her and kiss her and love on her) better than...

    Lego's not feeling well. Help?

    It pains me to say, but I just went down for another feeding and she was gone. I was encouraged that she was willing to take the c/c and water as well as she was earlier in the day... but last night's feeding at 11:30 pm did not make me feel good. She didn't really want it or water... and she...

    Lego's not feeling well. Help?

    Hey guys... an update. I've been trying to syringe feed since last night. Last night did not go well since I didn't have critical care or a proper syringe. But she did take the food (pellets mushed up with apple juice and pumpkin) herself out of a bowl... a little bit at least. Same thing...

    Lego's not feeling well. Help?

    o'kay... the antibiotic is called Metronidazole... and I remember her saying that it would help reduce the bad bacteria in her gut.

    Lego's not feeling well. Help?

    I should add that I was giving her pumpkin every morning as I used it the last time she had a bit of stasis. I used it in these instances... then cut it out after. But the last time I tried to cut it out, each and every time she'd go back into stasis, so I just continued it. I know this isn't...

    Lego's not feeling well. Help?

    So the vet prescribed the antibiotic due to the symptoms Lego was having... and I can tell you which one once I get home. She said that gut motility drugs were no longer recommended (ie Reglan) due to the pain they can cause if there is a blockage, or problem further down the GI tract. No...

    Lego's not feeling well. Help?

    Well, we are closing in on two weeks of trying to help Lego and in my opinion we are no better off. I'm trying to keep positive, but I'm really getting a knot in my belly over this. I've tried the spraying apple juice on the hay and mixing her herbs in, but it's not worked. She still will not...

    Lego's not feeling well. Help?

    Great tips guys... At lunch I'm going to get some apple juice to mist her hay with. And I also love the hiding her herbs in the hay idea... never would have thought of that... but it's brilliant! Thanks so much!! Sandra

    Lego's not feeling well. Help?

    Thanks again guys... I will definitely update what she finds out. On another note, I'm wondering if getting Lego some Benebac would be in order? The vet said the med she's giving her is an antibiotic. Thoughts? Also any suggestions for getting a hay stubborn girl to eat her hay...

    Lego's not feeling well. Help?

    Thanks for the replies guys! I really appreciate it!! We had our vet appointment this morning. She had a look at her tummy, which she said was full of gas. So I'm to continue the oval drops. Also she's going to give me something to help get the bad bacteria under control. She said she...

    Lego's not feeling well. Help?

    Hi everyone. My bunny Lego (11 years old) is not feeling well. She has been having tummy trouble more often the older she gets. It's always been something I have been able to help her with... a bit of gas drops and a lot of belly rubs, and we can get her back on her feet for a couple more...

    Shaking Head

    I have been working with my bunny Lego this weekend to help her thru a case of stasis. (I have a thread lower down in the infirmary). She's doing a bit better now, pooping (tho they are small) and eating some greens, hay & pumpkin. However, this morning I've seen her shaking her head...

    Diet for a Senior Bunny

    My bunny is about 7.5 years old now, and I've noticed in the past while that she seems to be more prone to gut problems and slow-downs. I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed a similar situation? Does anyone know if a diet change is in order... like far less pellets, and more greens? I...

    I'm worried about Lego

    Thanks for the prayers Nancy. After a day of on again off again dryer, tummy rubs, metacam & ovol drops... I'm happy to say that Lego ate some hay... and had some pumpkin as well. This is a very happy site to my eyes. I've tucked her back into her room for bed. And will give her another...

    I'm worried about Lego

    Thanks girls! I went and got pumpkin... and tried it, but no luck. I had her on the dryer again with the heating pad under her. This time she didn't try to get off of the heat. And I was able to massage her tummy some. She's back in her room (so I can have supper) and she went over the...

    I'm worried about Lego

    I should add that she's always been abou 3.5 lbs. I found the syringe for my metacam and under a friends suggestion gave her hopefully a .2 dose. It's hard to tell as the metacam syringe is in KG not ML. Now that I don't feel the hard area in her tummy I feel like I can give her proper tummy...

    I'm worried about Lego

    I'm really worried about my girl Lego. She's 7.5 years old approx. I fed her breakfast on teh way to work yesterday, when I came home she hadn't finished it. She'd eaten most. I've noticed this a bit lately, so I've cut down on her pellets, hoping she'd eat more hay. Anyways, she hasn't eaten...

    Please help change Canadian Law

    Hi everyone! In Canada, unacceptable numbers of farm animals are kept in cages and crates with no room to turn around, stretch their limbs or spread their wings. They are pushed beyond their natural physical limits to gain weight and produce more milk and eggs as quickly and cheaply as...

    Please make your voice heard...

    I'd like to encourage everyone to make your voice heard that factory farming is NOT acceptable. This is in the interest of anyone who cares about the earth and environment, and/or the cruelty suffered by industry farmed animals. The following is a link to a petition to put an end to this...
