Maybe you just need to try harder. Don't expect a rabbit to come to you and ask if you could please feed me by syringe, you have to catch him and hold him tight and just do it. If you can't maybe ask your parents can help with that. You keep asking questions online maybe just put your phone away and interact with your rabbit instead, having both your hands available, hold him, pet him, massage his belly, train him to tolerate that you need to hold him, we can't do it for you here unfortunately. It's you have to do it yourself, try, try again, try harder. Here's 6 pages on this thread and you've got lots of advice what to do, how to do it, there's nothing new we can suggest, now just do it. Sorry I don't mean to sound rude, I fully understand you want some assistance, ask maybe your parents can help you hold him.
It's ok! I will try and do that

You said you had an account here previously, so it's not your first rabbit perhaps?
Oh no it was an account for him which I forgot the email and password for ! I've had a few bunnies before .

Put your rabbit in a bunny burrito (ie wrapped in a towel). It might take two people for this to work if he’s too skittish and tries to run.

this may be the only way you can feed him critical care or meds.
here’s a link:

He's had veggies , he's been eating a few handfuls of hay now , syringe food , he has a herb salad mix and his medication is meloxicam and azithromycin antibiotics. He's also had some water by syringe

Where in the UK are you located do you have tesco near you? Here's what you need, they sell in pharmacies as well

Infacol baby pain relief gas drops (simeticone)

Or Gripe water (this is usually dill water for relieving gas)

You will find fennel and dill seeds there as well, Tesco brand is much cheaper but good.


Yes you can use teas with antibiotics, but honestly I don't know what antibiotics you got and why, he is clearly having problems with his digestion and not respiratory, you need to make him poo asap so he can start eating
How much dill water he needs

I see you got your bunny to get more hay. FYI, I reduced pellets and greens. That got my bunny eating more hay.
