Bad Pet Karma
 

b539404aa0b881e35799958f209b5278 My pet karma has been pretty negative lately. In March/April it was the cat, in May it was Princess, and now in June it’s the bunny. When the new pup comes next month I’m hoping it will break the cycle!

Little Bunny Poo Poo has developed what’s known as GI Stasis. It’s the number one killer of rabbits and tends to go undetected until too late. Basically their natural GI system gets screwed up, they stop eating and drinking, and then they die. I googled on the first signs something was wrong and got him to the vet in time. He goes in daily for an IV for the next few days, is on medication, and I have to force feed him green goop several times a day. For a bunny that doesn’t like to be picked up and held, it’s not been fun!

Needless to say, Bunny is not very happy with me right now. He has however gotten used to being manhandled. I might be able to get him out of his cage and let him run around after all is said and done. He does seem to be on the mend, and I think it’s the pain meds I just got from the vet that are doing the most good for him.

I have a rabbit who recently had GI Stasis, and we had to rush him to the vet. It is one of the most common things rabbits get. My rabbit hates the green goo, even though I think it smells good. He’s back to normal now, and we didn’t have to do any forced feeding. The medicine was helpful. I give him laxatone, especially when he sheds his winter coat and his summer coat to help him with his digestive system. I get the one for cat, just without the fish flavors. Hope this helps.
