My poor wee girl

Post by gemma997 on Tue Mar 15, 2016 8:02 am

My wee Miranda got a sore tail she got gel from the vets my poor girl is really uncomfortable.
Used bed excel which was recommended to us and it hadn't been absorbing the pee Miranda tail had been Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
thank goodness we changed to cat litter before she showed symptoms, or it could have been so much worse.

Going to have to split the cages again as soundwave is using Miranda's uncomfortableness to pinch her breakfast, he's had 3 so far this morning, put an extra one in for her after he eaten her first one.

Ooooouch,
Sore tail, not nice. Having had poorly parts in that general region for several months now I can really sympathise with the poor lil luv.
Have you tried Megazorb as litter? I've use it for nearly twenty years now and swear by it.

I have tried it, it sticks to their fur like glue they must be full of static. The cat litter stuff I'm using just now is good really absorbent(is brilliant for her wee tail) and no smell. Miranda hasn't peed outside the tray once since started using it.

The burgess excel bedding? It is essentially smartbedz in a different pack. I am wondering how it wasn't asorbing the pee as it is the most absorbent litter I have ever used. The only reason I am not still using it is the price and lack of lical availability in big packs. Did you try just pouring some water on it to see if it worked properly? It should go to a sawdust sort of consistency. I wonder if you had a dud pack.

It wasnt the Burgess one,  I was in the shop and while talking to a woman she said she used it for her giant continentals and she swore by it. I stopped using it because it wasn't absorbing but Miranda was already harmed but now the discovered teeth issues and think it a combination of the bedding and her not cleaning. She goes in tomorrow to have her teeth fixed.   Crying or Very sad  Crying or Very sad

The op(if I can call it that) but the vet is worried about her recovery she still not eating and is very lethargic, they are going to check her tummy tomorrow when they checked it it sounded quiet.
Going to sleep on the couch tonight so I'm close by and not disturbing the other half.
How long did it take all the dental bunnies to bounce back?

I'm sorry to hear she's having a rough time of it Sad

Time between dentals and beginning to eat really does vary from rabbit to rabbit but I would personally be hoping to see her nibble something this evening.

Do you have banana or plantain in? If my two are struggling eating they're usually my saviour foods.

Have you seen her drink?

Wow! Really?! I must be so lucky that I never had to syringe feed Molly. It's just as well really because I tried once and it was a massive fail! Laughing

My boys were all so drowsy I could have syringed a torpedo down their throats and they wouldn't have blinked!
They would nibbled odds and ends of grass/hay/herbs etc as soon as they came home but they wouldn't take in enough to make me happy that their tums were okay, so syringing was carried out until they sought out food from their dishes themselves. That was usually about thrity-six hours after they got home.

She is drinking and she did pee on me.
she's had a wee cuddle off soundwave but can't keep them together as she still had the cranular(spelling or word)  in her ear.
 She has also dipped her face in water to wash(daddy not very good at aiming with the syringe)  so going to let her sleep for a few hours and then feed her again.
Ive tried every food I have she not interested,  left her with baby food,  banana,  mixture of veggies,  musli and soggy pellets. Going to get herbs tomorrow see if she'll maybe have a nibble herself.
She eating the syringe food willingly she just won't eat herself.
Thanks woodwench never thought of grass I have some growing on the window sill.

I've never known a bun be allowed home with a cannula still in place.... did the vet explain why
that was?
I offer grass as it's a buns most natural food... not too much though, just as an appetiser.
I think a couple of hours sleep between feeding attempts is good. I also offer tepid water,
it's not such a shock on tum as cold water.

Yes they expect her to be readmitted she only came home so she could get night feeds etc. We were giving the option of having her to go to out of hours for it or come home and we do it, there was no option in our mind.
She has had a couple strands of hay this morning.

She is nibbling very small amounts of herbs but not enough of hay to keep her tummy going so still syringe feeding high fibre stuff, but the syringe feeding is working her tummy having good sounds.
She has developed stress diahorrea so she on probiotics now. The cranial is out, no more talk of readmission.
The vet gave her another strong pain medicine injectiom to see if that would kick in with the eating. She still on two lots of medicine to help with her stomach and the pain medicine. So here hoping today is the day that munching sounds can be heard.

She got another pain injection today, she has ate herbs(basil and coriander) not touched anything else she has came out of her cage for a wee while. Haven't gave her a bedtime feed as she was nibbling on some hay, so hopefully at the 1.30 check she'll have a wee full tummy. We b****r did spill her probiotic drink.

No full tummies yet the only thing she is eating is basil and coriander so giving her as much as she wants, with syringe feeding 3times a day to keep up the fibre intake.
Tail looking lots better. No more signs of diahorrea.
But she really has fallen out with me, no more hugs for me.

It's a shame it's the wrong time of year for wild forage. I spent over an hour hunting up grass,
cleavers and the odd dandelion leaf for Henry when he came home after his X-ray.
It worried me sick trying to get him to eat. He had the GA on the Tuesday
morning and it was gone midnight on Sunday morning before he ate any of his nuggets,
nearly five days.
I wasn't syringe feeding either as it was just too stressful and I was afraid his heart would
give out.
So I fed herbs and hand fed stalks of hay one at a time.
But it was the wild forage that got him through.
Hope Miranda perks up soon. Hugs Hugs
