Oval shaped poop is not normal, and normally is a sign of gut slowdown. I would give her tummy massages and/or gas drops. You can give her 1 1-2 ml dose every hour for 3 hours and then 1-2 ml dose every 3-8 hours or as needed. Keep her eating lots of hay and drinking tons of water. To get her to drink water add some apple juice to her bowl, or give her some leafy greens soaked with water - no gassy veggies such as cabbages, broccoli, or kale. Make sure she stays warm, too. If she isn't doing better after 2 doses of gas drops I would go to the vet. If you don't have gas drops you can brew fennel seeds, peppermint tea, or chamomile tea in hot water and syringe feed it to your rabbit after it is cooled. No honey. Syringe it to your rabbit every hour. These should help get gas out. It is a substitute for Infant Gas Drops.

Thank you, her poop was fine, but then she started eating hay and pooped these oval ones, only the ones in the picture. After that I cleaned it up, and she was still eating, and the poop was back to normal. What can cause her gut to slow down?

Gut slow down is caused by stress, pain, lack of exercise, and diet change. That is great she is still eating and her poop is back to normal! She sounds to be back on track 😊

We went to the vet today and she got scared/stressed and now her poop is in all kinds of shapes and sizes, she’s been eating alot of hay and she takes brakes to drink water, I ignored it thinking that it would go back to normal like always but it didn’t, I made camomile tea and I’m waiting for it to cool, how much should I give her?I don’t have gas drops

I would only give her 1-2 ml since she is eating perfectly fine. The poops should go back to normal soon since she is eating so much hay and drinking plenty of water.

That is a lot! I wouldn't give her anymore. She should be getting better, but the tea might have hurt her stomach since you gave her so much.

It might take a while for her poops to go completely back to normal, so wait a few days and if it get worse let me know.
