      One of my girls left a part of a cinnamon raisin bagel on the coffee table yesterday and our bun got a hold of it.  I found her chomping away happily.  I took the bagel away dispite her growling at me.  Our bun did eat a dinner of cilantro, so I know she was feeling ok yesterday evening, and I saw her in the hay/litterbox before I went to bed.  She didn’t eat too much of the bagel, but this morning she’s not looking too happy.  Usually, I’m greeted by a very hungry bun looking for breakfast.  She had no interest, and now she’s curled under the couch.  I’m thinking if she doesn’t perk up or eat something soon, it’s off to the vet.   Anyone’s bun ever eat bread before?

      I have never had one of my rabbits eat bread but I would just watch her and if she doesn’t seem any better then she may need a trip to the vet.

      Bread and baked goods can be very harmful to a rabbit because of all that starch. If she does not eat by noon, take her to the vet.

      So it looks like she’s got stasis. We’re treating it, and hoping for the best. She’s finally drinking water if I give it to her on a spoon, and she passed some poops and pee. We’ve got her as comfy as we can with her fav mat and a heating pad under her fav blanket to keep her warm. Ay. Our poor Queen bun.

      Wow, their tummies are so sensitive, it’s scary. I have teenagers, who are notoriously messy eaters, and I live in fear of them leaving some kind of food laying around for the buns to gobble up. They’ve already gotten ahold of a chocolate chip cookie, but fortunately didn’t like it too much so they only nibbled at it. I think most bunnies manage to find and eat some forbidden people food sooner or later, especially with kids in the house.

      Have you taken her to the vet? When BunBun got GI stasis, I took him to the vet 1st thing in the morning, and we still almost lost him. If you have given your bunny simethicone (in case she has gas) and some nice belly rubs and she still hasn’t recovered quickly, I would definitely take her to the vet ASAP. Sometimes they need painkillers, motility drugs and subQ fluids to get their bellies going again- that’s what BunBun needed. It’s good that your bun has pooped/peed, but she could still be in lots of pain. BunBun did a few poops during the 1st couple hours of his bout of GI stasis, but it still got really bad.

      I hope your bunny gets better quickly!

      Yes, have you gotten the bunny to the vet?

      Vibes to your bunny.

      She’s pooped! The nice big soft poops that come after the little hard poops! and she’s nibbling hay and pellets. Thanks to an awesome volunteer with my local rabbit rescue. She brought critical care, simethecone, and her magic touch. I notified the vet and let them know what was up. A trip to the vet would have added a lot of stress since it would have meant a trip there and back on the subway. If I couldn’t care for her at home then I would have made the trip. Bun is a fighter. She’s a survivor and a rescue bunny that’s loved by so many people.

      I am glad to hear you you are ready to run to the vet if need be, but that the extra care from a local rabbit rescue volunteer has helped. Whew.

      Sending continued healing full recovery vibes! Keep us updated!
