Rocco is our first rabbit so we are learning it all from scratch. Glad we found this forum! He is about 2 years old and the vet we took him to when we first got him in early Dec (he was a rescue) said he appeared healthy. He did have one episode of gut stasis which we were able to resolve with infant simethicone and he has not had another. He is very active, loves to play and loves pats and eats a lot of hay. About 2 weeks ago he had a bout of soft stools and I was able to speak to a vet who advised to limit his diet to hay which seemed to work. After adding in a limited amount of greens and a few pellets his poops are mostly normal but a few are larger, a few a bit softer and darker and we're finding an occasional uneaten cecotrope. The vet had recommended a probiotic if the hay-only diet did not work so I have some on hand. How concerned should I be and should I start giving him the probiotic? If so, how much and how often. He is 2lb 6oz. And does he get enough nutrients from the hay only? It's mostly Timothy with some orchard hay. Thanks for any advice!
