Had a worrying day with Sophie

Post by Littleboots on Wed Sep 04, 2013 9:50 pm

Sophie gets episodes of tummy ache.. Im sure its because shes so greedy Sad 
So used to it now... I can tell in an instant if shes a bit off... Glenn usually thinks im paranoid.... but.... my gut instinct is always right
I can usually turn her around with the normal meds....but today she took a bit longer...and i was starting to panic Sad 
Happy to say shes infront of me now.... nomming away... but it makes me wonder if its something with the veggies... so many buns latley with tummy ache / gassy tummies
Does anyone wash every veg??? I have to admit.... I dont unless I see a residue on it

I know Maysie has a theory that the greens often set her buns' tums off. I haven't had a problem.

We don't wash any veg, but don't give any spring greens at all and very little of curly kale of any other cabbagey type things.

What veg does Sophie get?

Does she gobble pellets too? Have you tried a treatball to slow her down? You could even hide her veg among her hay or in one of those wire ball things so she can't wolf it so fast.

Lots of vibes for her Hugs Hugs Hugs

We just give fresh herbs now June I have been trying for ages to find out what they are spraying the Spring Greens with to keep them fresher longer.

We haven't put the four males and Dotty and Cleo on any greens at all they just have pellets, hay and dried herbs. Have you tried taking her off veggies and seeing how she goes tummy wise she may be one of those buns that just can't tolerate them, Keegan was like that.

Lots of Vibes that she keeps well xxxxxx

Sophie has always had veggies so not really sure what sets it off
She is not a big pellet eater at all, hence not a big drinker either
I think she must get most of her moisture out of her greens.. Cant really remove too much as poor little Darcey needs to eat...

Sparky..
Sophie gets a good range of veggies, fresh herbs, and dried herbs... a little carrot and a little apple. Can sugars cause tummy aches or is it more likely to be veggies?

I would leave the apple out as it's quite acidic, and if giving Parsley only give 'flat leafed' as the curled Parsley is very bitter. Smile

Can you list the typical veggies you give her, there might be one in particular to try cutting out rather than all of them.

I'd be quite comfortable with most herbs, less so with anything like broccoli, cauliflower or cabbagey.

Greens and Kale are both Brassicas.

With gut issues I would really recommend feeding more digestive friendly herbs - so Mint, Fennel, fenugreek, lemon balm, chamomile are all good. Mint and Lemon balm are also quite vigorous so you get plenty out of the plants. You can feed fennel leaves and bulbs. You can often find the bulbs in the veggie aisle of the supermarket.

I would definitely cut out the greens, kale and romaine lettuce to start with and see if there's any improvement.

Personally I'd cut out the carrot and apple too so her gut is not getting any extra sugars.

I agree with Cheryl on the other herbs - if you substitute some of them there's no reason for her to be getting any less greens in total.

Shocked 
I was told by a rescue i could feed as much romaine as i wanted.... so i cut spinach out and fed romaine instead!

My lot are a fussy lot.... wont touch fenugreek in any way shape or form, mint is another no no...
How embarassing..... i presumed brassicas.... were brocolli cauli and the likes
Thanks for the info...
Forgot to add they get dill too.... i believe thats good for tummies

Some tastes take a while to acquire. Our Jack hates fenugreek crunchies out of a fresh packet, they have to be left to air for a while first. Supermarket mint is very stalky and bitter at the moment, but the home-grown is still putting up sweet fresh sprigs. I'd get them a mint plant and put it in their run - I bet sooner or later they take to it.

The first time Jack niffed rosemary he pulled a *proper* lip-curling, nose-recoiling face, wheeled away and legged it ROFL 

He likes it now Thumbs Up

I find apple gives my bunny a bit of an upset tum. Also my bunny a bit fussy with the pellets and I got recommended to make a mash with them adding water to them to soak and adding some grated veges that she likes. Was really suprised that she ate it all up
