      This morning our bunny (Netherland dwarf) got scared all of a sudden die no reason, and started running around his cage and he hit his face/mouth very bad against it. Since then, he has stopped eating (he keeps trying to eat hay and his pellets, and we also tried to give him his favorite treats, but he can’t chew and spits them out). We have checked his front teeth and they are all ok (not broken) but he cannot chew/eat. Does anyone know what could it be/what could have happened? And is there anything we can do? We have been searching for a vet but there are none nearby we could find that look after bunnies.

      You do need a vet for this. He should get a painkiller and an x-ray of his would be good too, in case he has skeletal injury to his face. But at least a painkiller. Any vet could prescribe that (rabbits typically get dog meloxicam, 1.5 mg/ml), but it’s of course a problem if vets refuse to see rabbits. Meloxicam is commonly given to rabbits at a dose of 0.3 to 1.5 (in instances of severe pain) mg per kilo body weight

      Its of course excellent that you cant see any injury to the front teeth, but he could still be so sore that he has lost his appetite. If he doesnt start eating on his own soon, you’ll have to syringe feed him.
