She thought she was helping. She was giving treats to our older buns & then gave the tinies treats as well. Now 1 of them has an upset belly, pudding like poops. I took away pellets & put it on hay only & added some rolled oats. Is there anything else I can do to save this little one?

Call an exotic vet. If none is available, call a rabbit rescue.

The closest exotic/rabbit savvy vet is over an hr away. She is fantastic, but I don't want to further stress this little one out, I will call her & see if she has suggestions.

I think what youre doing is right. Push hay. Monitor water intake. You can syringe a little water if needed. I mean usually bad diarrhea is a true emergency but you might just be able to keep a close on on this littpe one

I did syringe water to him/her just to be safe. It seems to still have an appetite, it was eating the hay & oats. Thank you
