EDIT: Updated avatar to a screenshot from a video of Chewy eating hay all on his own yesterday! My wife and I returned from a vacation on Sunday to find our 8 year old half-Satin half-English Spot in a strange position in his hutch. He was hunched almost into a ball and his front two legs were splayed out to the sides as if he couldn't stand up properly. He was well taken care of by an experienced friend while we were out of town, and the only thing she noticed was when she came over Sunday morning, her last visit before we got back, Chewy hadn't eaten his Saturday night pellets. She gave him his morning greens. When we got home Sunday about 2 PM, he still hadn't eaten Saturday's pellets or Sunday morning greens. We gave him Critical Care (leftover prescription vet formula from an incident with a different rabbit) and water through a syringe until we could take him to the vet on Monday. We were convinced it would be GI statis, as we had two other rabbits with this. However, he was still pooping and peeing, though the poops were smaller, and he wasn't using his litter box anymore. The vet didn't feel any bloat in the stomach and didn't feel any tumors. She said it was likely a neurological condition from falling, running into something, or a stroke from age. I did some googling and found it could have been from any of those things as well as a number of different bacterial infections. Our friend watching him said he didn't fall or run into anything, and we trust her. I wonder if there was a loud firework on Saturday (almost the 4th of July) that gave him a stroke. Or it could be age-related. It's now Wednesday, July 3rd, and he had a blood test today. We won't have the results until Friday, July 5th. I'm actually hoping it's a bacterial infection because from what I've read, that has the best case scenario for getting better. He's lethargic, has difficulty standing up, difficulty moving, has a slight head tilt, and doesn't drink water on his own. He finally started trying to eat on his own yesterday after I gave him a small piece of a banana. It's his favorite treat, and he had difficulty finding it right in front of him. Eventually, he was able to get his mouth on it, chew it, and swallow it. He then started nibbling on his hay, and he has continued to occasionally nibble on his hay, but it looks like it's a challenge for him, and he doesn't eat as much. He spends most of his time with his head drooping and facing a corner of his cage. Sometimes it's a dark corner, other times it's a light corner, so I don't think he's extra sensitive to light or anything. He is not experiencing Nystygymus (darting eye), and his head tilt has not gotten worse since Sunday. It's still just very slight. If the blood test does not find any infections, or even if it does, what are our options? What are the chances he will start eating/drinking on his own again normally? My wife and I love him to death but don't feel he would have a good quality of life if we were having to force feed him with a syringe several times a day. He doesn't like it. We also can't let him out of his hutch because he will just run straight into furniture. If he isn't going to recover enough to eat/drink on his own and not injure himself, we feel his best option would be a gentle death with euthanasia at the vet's office. Does anyone have experience with this?
