Spoke to the vet, and she said to cut his pellets to 1 tbsp to see if that will help. She also recommended trying Sherwood Forest pellets and digestive supplement. Has anyone heard of this? I googled and they seem to have a much shorter list of ingredients which is normally a good thing. But I’ve also been told by basically everyone that Oxbow has the best pellets..

He’s pooping normal poop (though small and weirdly shaped), the liquid cecals seem to be an early morning thing. Sorry if I’m asking too many questions, watching my normally very clean rabbit leaks poop every morning is just so hard. I stopped his metacam this morning and he doesn’t seem to be in any pain even though there’s audible watery gurgling noises coming from him.

The vet told me I can cradle him like a baby with butt slightly elevated and just gently wiggle his butt for him to help gas come out. I tried this and he let out a really stinky fart, but he only tolerates this for 30 seconds at a time, if anyone has ideas on helping him pass the gas that would be great. I am doing simethicone like a crazy woman but I’m not sure if it’s helping much.
