        Hiya,

        Both my buns aged 5 and 7 are both recovering from gi stasis and have been on metacam and empirid, thus finished a couple days ago. They have since started eating greens and some pellets again, but don’t seem too keen on their hay or water. I would normally notice a significant drop in their waters bowl, however every morning it seems it has not even been touched.

        I’m sure they would be in a far worse state if they truly weren’t drinking anything, I’m just quite worried that it seems so sudden.

        Any advice? Is this normal almost a week after the initial gi stasis?

          Have they been getting critical care or other supplement? Feeding critical care tends to lower their water intake because they are getting liquid from the critical care.
