Charlie has a bad tum

Post by KatieB on Fri May 22, 2015 8:28 pm

So he has always had a very sensitive tum but for the last couple of weeks it has been worse than usual. I have cut down his food and swapped it for unlimited grass (on Johns advice) but it doesn't seem to be improving. The last few days he is spending a lot of time in his litter tray and the result is either watery poo or large sticky lumps of poo. He seems a little quiet in himself bless him but he normally is during his moult.

I spoke to John tonight and he is being taken in on Tuesday for a thorough going over.

Has anyone had any experience of this?

No I don't think I'm of help. 
Only once Bertie had. Watery poos after being at the vet because he had pulled one of his nails off. He was stressed as they put a collar on him. 
Wishing the lovely boy to get his tummy settled ASAP. And sending a big hug to you!Hugs

Aw poor Charlie Sad

Have you tried him with probiotics? Pro-c used to sort Thumper's dodgy tummy out.

Joey has a similar thing when he's going through a bad moult (or should I say worse than normal!) Normally some zantac or cisapride helps a bit plus trying to get as much fur off as possible...

Hugs for you and the boy xx

Jack went through something very similar earlier in the year. He had blood tests, urine tests, x-rays and an ultrasound scan and nothing particularly conclusive was found. He has been put onto everything possible in the meantime anyway - panacur, antibiotics, metaclopramide, ranitidine and pain relief.

The only thing that did come back was a bit of surplus calcium in the bladder so he doesn't get calcium rich foods such as readigrass, and gets a timothy hay based pellet instead of alfalfa based.

Improvement was very slow and over a long time but he has improved an awful lot although he's still not 100% well; he is still a happy, binkying little fella even though he could do with putting a bit of weight on.

I am a big believer in giving metaclopramide and ranitidine - it does seem to help get everything moving through the gut properly and allow the gut flora to re-establish. Pro-C can't hurt as most buns seem to like the taste and drink more when using it.

Loadsa vibes for little Charlie Hugs Hugs Hugs

How's he doing today? Effie and Dolly both produced poo, similar to what you describe. It's hard to say, as you know, they can produce all sorts of weird and wonderful poos, and it can indicate something, and nothing. For Effie it was normal, for Dolly, well,.she was very poorly. In both cases, totally different things helped. I always give Pro C in the water now, over time, it's helped all of my buns, and any odd poo gets taken to the vet. Good luck for Tuesday. xxx

I always check Holly's poo and it always seems normal thank goodness. I used to have to watch her because she is a little thief. Not that we leave anything there anymore but if something looked good on the coffee table and the mood takes her, she used to try and pinch it. Hmmm

I am sorry to hear Charlie's been a bit poorly Sad

Is he any better?

Willow has had a really dodgy tum this weekend as well. Similar to what you describe. Luckily, a few 'hay only' days has sorted her out - much to both of their disgust Laughing

Hi all,

So the bad news is that there is a tooth that is now breaking through his jaw:-( and his Tum is very slow moving. The poos have been slightly better though. John has taken bloods and we are waiting for the results.

I'm worried we might not have long :-(

Oh goodness - haven't been around much recently. Loads of vibes coming Charlie's way xx

(Am struggling with revolting poops from BJ at the moment, which have worsened over the last couple of days. He was just not eating his caecotrophs up to then but is now producing a lot of unformed squish. I have got him off the veg and giving Pro-C. He is absolutely fine in himself but if there is no improvement a vet trip is on the cards.)
