Good day.

This morning I found my flemishgiant super bloated and just sat without saying hello.
The info on the net is scary and we have no vets close by. What can I do to help ease the bloating..

Do you think that he has gas? Gastro-Intestinal (GI) Problems: Gas and Stasis
You can give him baby gas drops, for three doses. 1ml doses each an hour apart.
Stomach massages also work well if it’s gas.
Try to get him to eat a little bit, whether it be veggies, pellets or hay. Hay being the better option. See if you can call a vet and get their advice.
Bloat in rabbits is a dangerous thing, but I don’t know much about it. Hopefully some of the other members can help? Gastric Bloat in Rabbits

Not having a rabbit savvy vet close by is very risky. Even if the vet is an hour away, that’s still doable. I’ve learned from this forum that bloat is extremely dangerous and can cause pressure on internal organs. You may want to do more research to find the closest vet.
