      Hello, I have a 1.5yo Flemish giant.  She’s been in GI stasis for almost two weeks.  We are under vet care and she’s getting 1 type of injectable gut mobility (cerina) drug, 2 types of oral mobility drugs (reglan & another), 2 types of pain meds (metacam and gabapentin), baby gas drops, bene-bac plus (probiotic), entice (appetite stimulant), sub q fluids daily, and emerAid (kind of like critical care).

      She seems to be stable but she’s not pooping.  The only thing she passes is a clear mucusy stuff.  (I wondered if it’s clear jelly because of the emerAid because it’s an oatmeal color?) She eats the emerAid and nibbles at hay and greens. The vet and I are at a loss.  I’m going to keep fighting as long as she is but I was wondering if anyone has had a rabbit in stasis this long of has had rabbit passing clear jelly stuff and not pooping?  Any suggestions are appreciated!

      Jelly poop can mean the intestinal wall is irritated, or that there’s overgrowth of bad gut bacteria, but in your case, my guess is its the natural end product of EmerAid. I have never used this product myself though. It’s rather different from Critical Care. But jelly poop is still poop, meaning things are passing through and the intestines are not empty, which is great. Have you discussed the jelly poop with your vet? Is your bun eating anything else except the Emeraid?

      I have had 2 buns that battled with stasis för weeks. Both buns had dental problems. One of them had very minor molar spurs and got well again after a simple molar burr. He was roughly the same age as your bun.
