    question about Lactulose

    okay, figured I'd give an update in case anyone searches 'lactulose' at some point. I called three vets, one didn't call me back, I had one of the girls that answered the phone walk me through how to wean Fizz slowly off it (cut the dosage a bit and keep on cutting it as time goes until its...

    question about Lactulose

    at the beginning of the month, Fizz and I moved to a different state and during the move (a 12 hour drive that turned into a 24 hour one) she stopped pooping and eating. We ended up at an emergency vet halfway between here and there and Fizz got some fluids and some meds and made a quick...

    RHVD2 in the US - what you need to know

    okay, updating in case anyone else has this happen to their bun as well. The vet said that Fizz took her shot about noon without any problem and she was fine when we got home, nibbling on greens a bit. About two or three hours in though she started to get very lethargic and she stopped eating...

    RHVD2 in the US - what you need to know

    looks like there have been some cases in Florida. I just got Fizz vaccinated today. $50 and apparently she has to be 'identified' so they took a 5$ picture of her as well. They say she took the shot well and she was pretty okay for the first few hours after, nibbled on her favorite greens and...

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    so we've got a Fizz update! on Monday I got a call back from the vet that said the radiologist had responded. They thought they saw an abscess and so I was recommended to the rabbit dental expert. Called and set up the appointment and we went in on Thursday. The vet looked Fizz over and the...

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    ah, thank you JBun. Short of the recent eating issue Fizz has always been a very lively and interactive rabbit. I don't want her lifestyle to be decreased in any way that would take that from her. But I don't want to give her up yet either. So far the specialist hasn't gotten back to my vet...

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    thank you for being straight up with me. It's what I'm so very afraid of. I would do almost anything to keep Fizz with me. She's my little heart holder and has been for almost seven years now. But I would never put her through the trauma of surgery and recovery and then have her living a...

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    I don't mind chopping food up into smaller bits at all. I think Fizz would adjust pretty well to that since her favorite treats are tiny sized squares of papaya already. If I had to syringe her every day multiple times a day for the rest of her life I don't think she'd do well with that at all...

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    Thank you Niomi. It's really rough to have our babies going through this kind of thing and I'm sorry you are too. I'm glad that you've got a solution that gives you more time with your Netherland. In Fizz's case they're talking about taking out ALL of her back teeth. They say the roots on...

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    yep! we've got her on meloxicam and Fizz is currently stress eating (just like her mother) so I'm not worried about food intake currently lol. I've ordered the apple banana which should be in tomorrow but she's been getting the 'small animal papaya' because it was the only thing I could get my...

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    I should clarify, the incisors are fine its the molars with the roots

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    sorry I keep forgetting the reply button so we just got back from the vet. It wasn't a sinus infection. This vet did some x-rays. It looks like Fizz's teeth all or mostly have overgrown roots. Seriously overgrown. The specalist is going to call me tomorrow but it looks like they might all...

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    so we just got back from the vet. It wasn't a sinus infection. This vet did some x-rays. It looks like Fizz's teeth all or mostly have overgrown roots. Seriously overgrown. The specalist is going to call me tomorrow but it looks like they might all need to be extracted.

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    HOLY CROW! It's the pain medicine! Or, what's wrong with her isn't the pain medicine but putting her on a full dose of the pain meds has her acting almost like everything's fine. I just waved a green leaf lettuce leaf in front of her and she VERY emphatically RIPPED a chunk off and ate it -...

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    thanks for sticking with me through this. We made it through the night and she's still hopping around, albeit a bit less, acting like everything's fine. We got about a dozen straggly poops last night and she was drinking water just fine on her own. She's still fighting the feeding though the...

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    I've got the meloxicam. Fizz sprained her knee a while back (from scratching too vigorously as far as I can tell). The vet had me giving her 0.3ml once a day before. I did ask him about pain meds and he said he didn't suggest it but it wouldn't hurt if I did. He just said it might upset her...

    does Fizz have something up her nose?

    ah, good! I am glad I'm not just being paranoid. I've had Fizz for over six years and I feel like I know her well but I've also been going to this vet for even longer and he's always been so good up until now (except recently they've expanded and he never seems to have the time anymore). He...
