    My rabbit oak has always been good with eating plenty of hay, I recently got her cat grass from petco and a guinea pig that lived near her died a few weeks ago besides that there have been no other changes. She is drinking water but minimally. I can’t go to the vet for another 2-3 days since my dad is away. Please if you have any advice I need your help. Thanks

    How long has she not eaten for, and is there anything she's willing to eat, such as treats, veggies, or pellets?

    Are you seeing any signs of gas discomfort, such as sitting in a tight posture and/or pressing the stomach against the ground?

    A good general measure would be giving her simethicone (aka baby gas drops). You can buy this at any pharmacy/grocery store medication aisle. Look for just plain-- no flavors. It helps move along any gas that may be causing the discomfort, and if that's not the case, it will not do any harm.

    Aside from not eating, are you noticing anything else? Had there been odd poops/pees approaching today?

    What do you mean she's stopped eating? Is she eating grass and pellets now, or is that what she usually eats and no longer is? If she is no longer eating those things, how long since she last ate anything?

    That good you were able to get her to eat again. I hope they feel better and the Vet will help them recover!
