I don’t see how syringe feeding could cause stasis, but it could discourage a bun from eating on their own because they simply wont be hungry. What we usually do (we go through this a lot with Bramble) is when he starts eating on his own we reduce syringe feeding slightly, he then eats a bit more on his own and we reduce again and so on. If your bun is still eating a normal amount of veggies I don’t know that there is a need for syringe feeding, but the vet would be best to advise.
