    You've been a great comfort whenever I've posted about Zoe's megacolon issues and the stress that comes with them. Thank you for all of your support; it really means a lot to me. :hug:

    I hope that Ned bounces back to normal ASAP. Please give him pets and kisses for me.

    Another update: the vet was able to give Zoe a (catheter) enema and inserted 20 mL's of warm, soapy water. She said Zoe remained still for the procedure and was "a very good girl." Some of the water ran out before they could "pinch it off at the source," so to speak; but at least some water was held in her gut.

    My fingers remain crossed that the enema helps soften and break up the fecal material.

    Prayers for Zoe. So glad they could do at least that so far.

    I'm glad she tolerated the enema well! How long will it take to do its thang?

    Hugs!

    Hope all works out! I've been thinking of her and praying for her.
    Give her a pet for me! :)

    I hope that Ned improves too, prayers and positive thoughts for both of these little bunnies and their families.
