    Just offered barley rings, he ate most of one, then refused any more, he only ate a few mouthfuls of the leaf earlier, its still there, unfinished. Its not that he isn’t eating, it’s that he’s only eating small amounts, not really enough, though better than none. I don’t know if the injection will have made things worse, pain meds can supress bunny appetites?

    Pain meds and antibiotics (at least baytri) can suppress appetite, but he can’t not have painmeds and antibiotics. I’m glad to hear he’s eating even if it’s not a lot. Balance issues can cause nausea and in people and dogs you see rather violent vomiting (think seasickness), but since buns can’t vomit, inappetence can be the only sign of nausea.

    It’s baytril he is on but so far I hadn’t given any, as I was waiting to start alongside the metacam and i was leaving that til bedtime, given the vet said she’d given him a substantial dose of both pain killer and anti inflammatory in the injection earlier. The baytril is only as a ‘just in case’ as there is no sign of infection such as temperature or inflammation.

    Podge was quite floppy when I picked him up just now to give him his first lot of meds, but he did try and bite and struggle when the syringes came too close to his mouth. He took one raspberry after but refused a second, which is really not good, as so far they have been the one thing he hasn’t been turning down. It’s been a roller coaster of a day!

    GJ – I’m so sorry that your little guy is going through all this, you’ve both been in my thoughts all day.
    He couldn’t be in a better home for it though, if he could be, he’d be so thankful he was with you.

    Will he go for a nibble of celery… ???? you could try that upside-down-celery-put-meds-down-the-middle trick…..

    Have you tried cerenia for nausea? I would be surprised if he wasn’t nauseous and didn’t want to eat because of that. The long sustaining pain med was probably buprenorphine right? That can really slow down the gi as it is a opioid but it really helps with pain. At least he is eating on his own some. I know my girl had a double horrible ear infection and wouldn’t eat for 3 weeks so I had to force feed even with pain meds and we got her on the right antibiotic and she’s been eating on her own. Maybe there is some other pain he has that an X-ray or ct could show?

    He looks exactly like my Patches, I hope he gets better❤️

    Here is a slight out of it looking Podge this morning, with Gina keeping a watchful eye out…

    He took his first syringe of meds without fighting but fought the second, hence the sticky looking snoozle x

    The head til is a bit better today, though he is still moving in circles.

    He did nibble some grass when he first went out, not for long, but right now, every mouthful counts…

    BB let me pop on here after all, this morning. It’s so good to hear that he’s still being feisty between periods of rest. And I saw your reply to the frozen bottle, so please ignore repeat question in my email

    Sending heaps of love again (((((((darling Podge)))))))

    Precious bunnies!  I just want to climb in the picture there and give them loving pets and encouragement and support with soft words and touch. Beautiful souls.

    Podge isn’t eating much but has eaten some nectarine and 14 raspberries over the afternoon and evening. He’s still very spaced out, but I don’t know how much that is due to the meds

    So frustrating to not be able to communicate. To not know… They should have been given telepathic communication abilities along with their innocence, fragility, and quietness.

    Good Gina – the presence of another bun must be SO important in this kind of situation…

    How about fibafirst sticks? I don’t know if you have any…

    Podge seems a bit brighter this evening, he fought properly against his evening meds and seems generally a bit more aware of his surroundings. He’s eaten some baby carrot with the top on, 2 and a half barley rings, a few pellets, some dried grass and some hay. I’m assuming the ani-inflamatories are starting to help. He’s back at the vets tomorrow, will update again after x

    Podge fought well over his meds this morning, then showed his opinion of me by peeing on me. He little realised I was so glad to see such a nice big puddle (thankfully most of it missed me!) that I really didn’t mind plus the bunnitude showed he was on the up.

    There were maybe 20-30 little peppercorn poops in his n Gina’s run plus some normal ones, so I’m assuming the peppercporns are Podge’s and a decentish number of peppercorns at least food is still moving through the gut.
