I hope all will be OK hun and thank you for the updates. I know if we tried to bath our Holly she would turn into a Ninja.  Please keep us posted on the caecal sample results.

Do you feed leafy greens? The only time I ever had to wash a bun-bum was twenty years ago when I had Clawed. (I washed in the kitchen sink, soaking the mess well then easing away and washing the remainder of and toweling lightly.) My vet suggested stop feeding leafy greens, I did and never had a mucky bun-bum again.

Thanks guys. Nope, leafy green free zone. Most he ever gets is a couple of strands of coriander or parsley when MJ gets his. Generally all they get is ad lib hay, small portion of pellets for breakfast and dinner, one or two fibre first sticks or barley rings a day, a sprinkle of dried forage every now and then :/
He doesn't get all of the above in any one day, excess fresh herbs or dried forage seem to make it worse... but then there are days when he's only had his pellets and hay and hes had uneaten ceacals. He is on the skinny side so its not like he can only have hay :/

Sorry if this has already been mentioned, have you tried pro-c? We had this (or a similar!) problem with Thumper and the pro-c cleared it right up!

I haven't, is that the same stuff you can get in PaH?

Dropping the samples off on sat morning, hope they're still OK after a few days :/

Yes, that's the stuff. You put it in their water.

It cleaned her butt up instantly! It was an absolute god send.

I don't know why I never suggested it when you first posted HBWS

I called the vet school on friday to make sure the samples we had been collecting would be ok and the answer was no, they need to be less than 24hrs old and ideally refrigerated as soon as they're collected until you can give them to the vet. Philip did not deliver any more samples before sat morning :/

I picked up some Pro-C and gave them that (they have water with pro-c and plain water, they've been drinking both). So hopefully that'll help Philips tum. Going to call the vet on Monday and get him in to get his bum clipped, at least then if he does have any uneaten ceacals they won't be getting stuck in his fur.

Oh bless him, I cannot imagine he will enjoy it very much but with some bunnies it is essential.  I have had to do it in the past.

So they've had the pro-c all week, I've been allowing Philip to have slightly more goodies (fresh herbs, dried forage) and... touch wood... I've not seen any evidence of anymore uneaten ceacals.

Spoke to soon Rolling Eyes
However, having found one uneaten caecal is definitely an improvement given that he's been getting more herbs etc.
