I have feed her the recovery food, she is sooooo good for me and just lets me syringe it into the side of her mouth. She has a little napkin so it doesn't dribble down her fur Smile

She has been eating her hay and her sides aren't sucked in as much anymore. I think she is over the worst and I feel better knowing she has additional pain relief for tomorrow. If she carries on taking the food and eating her hay she won't need to stay at the vets.

Only thing I am worried about now is how her sister will react when she goes back to join them in a few days. Boo is quite laid back but Hermione is very hormonal and has made herself top bun in the trio. May have to do some re bonding there.

It sounds like it's pain causing the problem, so hopefully the pain relief will help.

When you take Hermione in, I would ask them to give you two or three days-worth of pain relief for her for afterwards. I can't imagine a bun coming home from a spay without it really Hmmm

I hope she is feeling lots better soon Hugs

I'm sorry to hear she is still poorly, try giving her some water every 2 hours about 10-15 mls in a 1ml syringe as she could be dehydrated as sometimes this is overlooked when bunnies are not eating and a couple of syringes of water can make a big difference. Do you know if your vet gave Easter any fluids.

I don't know Maisey, she never mentioned water. Good idea though about syringing water to her, i have put a shallow water bowl in the cage for her and I have seen her drinking from it. She also been grooming herself.
The poo she does do is very small, compact and dark, not the usual plump ones she does.

Sparky, you know it amazes me they don't come home with pain relief. I've had 3 c -sections and I had pain relief for up to 2 weeks after each one. I couldn't have gone home the same day without pain relief, it would have been awful. I think they should give you 2 to 3 days worth afterwards. I guess they worry you might OD the rabbit???

I think Easter and I are going to have cuddles on the sofa again Smile I need to give her the antacid and more food and some water and plenty of tlc.

Thank you all for all your kindness Smile

If Easter's poop's are small and dark and dry that can be a sign of dehydration, if she is sunk in at the sides I think I have read that on this thread somewhere that can be another sign and if I am right the more water she drinks you should see an improvement, or I hope you do Smile

Come on Easter prove me right xxxx

All of our lot had pain relief for 3 days after. If I was you I would insist on it for Hermione, or use another vet who will give it. I can't believe they would worry about OD-ing. People who couldn't manage to suck up the correct dose in the syringe are probably too thick to find the vets in the first place Wink Laughing

Re: the dehydration. Of course the Critical Care is well diluted so that should help Thumbs Up

Florence was given Metacam but she refused to take it!! I had such arguments with her over it, in the end I gave up. I tried everything from putting it on bread (she weed on it) to bribery.

I still have the Metacam if anyone wants it. She had two doses from it and that's it, and one of those I had to take it with me to her check up for the vet to do it Laughing

I'm pretty sure we had Loxicom, although I don't think it is licensed for use in rabbits so Humum had to sign a disclaimer thingy. We don't mind the taste of that (although I am phobic about all oral meds No) - Humum got me to take mine on broccoli in the end as I refuse to have a syringe in the same room as my mouth No

I just re-read the thread I done when Florence refused to take her Metacam, it's quite comical. She was thumping at various pieces of food I put it on No

She really is a little spoilt brat Laughing

Hope Easter is feeling a bit better

Sparky, I had to sign disclaimers at the vet too for meds for Thumper. I don't think there is an awful lot out there that is licenced for rabbits.

My vet knows me well, he always gave Thumper the jabs and then asked me to sign Laughing He knew I'd dither about it and was obviously confident that it was ok to give her it Laughing

Re dehydration, I definitely agree about getting water in her. Being dehydrated won't help matters Thumbs Up Smile

Morning all,

Easter is so much better today cheers She has been doing normal poos and plenty of them and is drinking from her bowl (did't like the syringed water AT ALL!). She s still quiter than usual but that is to be expected

I have put her in the kitchen with Boo and Hermione so they don't lose their bond. Hermione is humping Boo, again, and Easter is resting in her bed. They seem to be ok together which is good.

Since Easter has been out of the play house, someone has been spraying wee like crazy in there, it's disgusting! I believe it's Hermione doing it, just hope she dosn't give the kitchen a spray job too Laughing Shocked

I just checked on them whilst making a coffee and they were all asleep in the tiny spare litter tray I put in for them to use. So cute Love

I think I will keep Easter in overnight again, and perhaps put her outside for a bit tomorrow afternoon with the others and see how she goes from there.

Thanks again everyone for all your support Smile
