I’m really thankful for your answers. I was panicing at the time when i wrote this. I went to see a local vet and she consulted other vets that know better. What i found out: Yes, he does have a little bit smaller heart than he should have, he had a lot of gases, and his back teeth are long and they may cause a problem, but that’s not so sure becuase the teeth line was still beautiful. 

The gases have been treated and that should be ok. I think i’m going to give him small doses of gas medicine from time to time (monthly) to make sure he doesn’t have any gas pain. 

The vet gave us some medicine for the pain. I have been giving him that for about a week now and he is eating and drinking just fine. 

If the teeth are the main factor then they can’t cut them just jet, because he is a bit underweight because of his lack of appetite or pain from the teeth. Over this past week he has started to gain some weight again. I really hope that the main problem is not the teeth. All bunny people know why. I have been making sure that he eats hay and i have alse been giving him apple tree branches which he acctiually really likes. 

But now i found that he still has this breathing thing. I don’t know what to call it but these breathing issues have been off and on for about four months. Once he looks like he has difficulties and seems so bad and the other day he runs around like nothing never happened. It is so confusing. The vet i went to didn’t know why he may breathe like that. 

Breathing issues haven’t been after running or such, they seem random and when he has them, he turns his head away when i offer him a drink. Then he won’t drink or eat awhile.
