Well done taking her to another vet. Our vets who teach rabbit medicine at one of the best vet schools in the world advise thinking of pellets as treats and not to give more than 1tbsp a day. In fact they rarely give their own bunnies pellets. You could just drop the pellets for a while and see how she gets on. Best of luck!So I've waited a bit time. According to the Vet her belly is okay, not in pain.
The pellett could cause these episodes she is having. So we will change the pelletts slowly.
Yes. He got sick, we took him to the vet, and they gave us Reglan (for one week) and Critical Care (for if he stopped eating). After 3 weeks of pineapple juice, papaya, veggies, lots of hay, and a small number of pellets, he passed a ton of fur and got better.You're having GI Stasis on a returning basis?
He is a BIG hay eater, and it is just timothy hay. He gets veggies when I can afford them, which is often. He will sometimes eat cardboard and paper, along with maple tree branches and some weeds from in my yard.^ How much hay does he eat every day? What else besides the hay and those pellets does he eat daily?
It's great he's a good hay eater. With the greens, however, what's up with those? Is it consistent? Is it every day? Does the amount vary? And do you know for sure the types of weeds?He is a BIG hay eater, and it is just timothy hay. He gets veggies when I can afford them, which is often.

I try to keep veggies a consistent as possible, just sometimes I forget to buy them, or just don't have the money that week. If I don't have the money I will pull some veggies out of our fridge (Theo has his own for veggies) and give those to him, but my mom prefers I buy his. It is mostly just romaine, cilantro, parsley, bell pepper, cucumber, and sometimes bok choy. I will normally wash up some and then separate them into 2 or 3 piles and feed him those for the next 2 or 3 days.It's great he's a good hay eater. With the greens, however, what's up with those?

I was just trying to figure out what could be causing problems. Rabbits don't do well with changes so if they get a couple cups worth of greens for a few days and then don't get any, that could potentially cause issues.
It could also be the pellets, but if the greens are too varied with feeding and not feeding, then the issue may have nothing to do with the pellets.
Thanks for the advice! I will get some.For fur problems: oxbow digestive support. Give 1 per day (or 2 if extreme long fur and shedding season). and of course, grooming.
As for my bunny: surgery it is probably………..
First, we try to get a sample from the gut if that's possible. Right now my vet is asking the Ultrasound colleague whether she is comfortable with extracting a sample from the bunny. So now I'm waiting for that.
She has gone through already so much….She probably hates living with us.
