Thank you ALL so much for all your input and help. Its so very appreciated! As a new bunny mom ( and just in general ) these forums can be a lifesaver!! I'll definitely keep you updated as soon as I find out what it is at the vet!
Well this is an open community and we are giving free support and advice there's nothing wrong in communicating the problem, of course vets have all the equipment and knowledge and hopefully will help, I personally offer free emotional support it is important that you don't feel alone and can share even stupidest questions with somebody, feels like family.There is no point debating what it could or could not be. The rabbit needs a vet.
Sorry i got it wrong.Alright so we took him to the vet today with a sample of his poop in a little bag. They did a general exam on him and said he had no signs of anything wrong with him. They checked his poop and did a poop examination under the microscope and the vet said it looked like SEEDS to her. She then did a "poop float test" to make sure no parasites were present, and NONE showed up.
That being said, she doesn't know for sure what it is, but that her best guess is a seed. We have no clue where the seeds came from or when he might have eaten them, especially considering this happened days ago and he is STILL pooping them out? We have not let him outside since finding them.
So basically, after a $100 vet bill, we know at the very least what they AREN'T. They are NOT tapeworms, flea eggs, or parasitic.
I was told I shouldn't be concerned because he's healthy, and that she would be going home and doing some googling and research herself to try and figure out what it might be, since it is a mystery to her!
I'm just glad he isn't sick or in any pain! Phew!
Thank you all again for your helpful suggestions. It made me feel much more calm and informed about the whole situation until I was able to get him into a vet! Much love to the community!
No problem. It is good to know what you and your rabbit went through so that we can learn something. It was good of you to share.Sorry if i got it incorrect , it just happened to my bunnie and that was what her poops looked like.
I looked up Revolution and I don't see tapeworm on the box, although it kills other intestinal worm. It has been so long since I used it that it is not fresh in my memory. I may have just used it as a preventative because it kills fleas.A better solution, but more expensive is Revolution. You would have to buy that from a vet. It works like Advantage for dogs and cats, but I don't think that Advantage is not safe for rabbits. It controls fleas and internal parasites.
I don't think that looks like seeds.@Niomi @Theo
This is a photo of the poop I took to the vet for her to see. That one in the middle that has a line of them embedded in the poop was the first time I had seen that so far. It made me think it was tapeworms for sure... But she tested that area specifically and said it looked like seeds to her... but showing you guys too since you have been so helpful!
As for getting second opinions, I live in Las Cruces and we are currently seeing this rabbit vet because shes the only one we could find in our city... Unfortunately for us, the others have retired or passed away. Luckily we found at least one here still. Just wish she knew what this was!
