I managed to get him seen and he has spurs on his back teeth, earliest appointment is kust over a week away to have dental work done, he has lost 400g from 3.2kg to 2.8kg which is worrying but he did need to shift the bulkHopefully it's just something minor like stuck hay, and they can get it taken care of easily. When you're able to get in to see one of them that is. Don't know if you've already looked here for a vet or not.
The RWAF is keen to put owners in touch with vets that show a greater knowledge of rabbit care through our Rabbit Friendly Vet List. The list is constantly being updated and whilst we haven’t…rabbitwelfare.co.uk
I used to soak the nuggets of different flavours in warm water and bake them like thin little waffers and they loved them. But the paste is a good idea. I scooped him up tonight and was shocked at how light he felt. The big concern is less going in means gutt stasis is not far off with him. For a big boy he is a delicate little flower. I feel really bad for him coz it must be hurting him and i cant fix it instantly.That's great you were able to get him in!
Because he's losing weight, he must not be eating quite as well. If you feel you need to up his food intake while waiting for his appointment, if he's eating nuggets fine, increasing those can help. Or if you don't want to increase nuggets there are plain hay pellets available. If he's not eating nuggets well, soaking them in warm water to make a pellet mush can be helpful for dental buns. Or feeding recovery food mix.
Hello JBun, Nugget has decided to stop eating and been taken to emergency vets to see if they can get him eating again with plans to go ahead and tackle his teeth and get his gut moving again.Yes, please do. I would really like to know how your bun is doing and how the dental goes.
