Well the vet give her a antibiotic and a pain killer but she only pees at night, she only eat a little of parsley or any kind of fruit, she lays in a loaf all day and poops only if we give her a tummy rub and she been on it for 5 day already and not getting any better I was wondering if any one had this kind of problem or if any one know what this is ?

What kind of vet do you go to? A regular dog and cat vet or a rabbit savvy vet? This sounds like GI Statis and maybe a possible blockage, she needs to be xrayed and taken to a rabbit savvy vet. You can start by giving her some baby gas drops. and if that doesn't help by tomorrow morning she needs to go the the vet ASAP.

If she eats leafy greens you can soak cilantro or what you give her parsley in water for a few mins so when she eats them she will get more water with them. Hope she'll get better soon.

Also romaine lettuce or other green lettuces are good if your rabbit doesn't drink much as there's lots of water in them, just avoid Iceberg, any green or dark leaves. Romaine is best.

i gave her romaine lettuce, and parsley and i know parsley is bad for her cause of the calcium but she doesn't take anything else then that and she only pooped 20-15 poos every 12 hours

Try to make her eat as much hay as possible, even if this means shoving it in her face and poking her gently with it until she gets annoyed and takes it from you. This may seem harsh but that is what I did when my bun quit eating after her spay and it worked.

If the vet said to give it then I would give it.

Ive read thats for dogs. Best probiotic to use for rabbits, as far as I know, is Protexin Soluble. But of course if you trust your vet, follow his/her instructions.
Hope your baby gets well ❤

The safest and best thing to get her tummy moving is hay. Try some pineapple chunks or juice too, bromelain helps to break down food. But not too much, since it's high in sugar. A gentle tummy massage might help that as well. I can't imagine how stressed you must feel. Sorry. All the best and keep us updated!
