Help I have a sick rabbit

Post by ALPHAWOLF.. » Fri, 07 May 1999 04:00:00



Can someone please give me some ideas on what to do for my rabbit?  She
has not had a bowel movement for the past few days.  I have given her
some castor oil what else can i do??  I can't afford to take her to the
vet they won't accept a payment plan so please any suggestions will be
greatly appreciated.

Thank You
Josh

Hi Josh,
The thing with this is we can't diagnose the problem for you:)  It could have
different causes, which would necessitate different treatments.  *** that can
be used that would help can only be gotten through a vet.
Are there other vets in the area you can call?  Did you explain the severity of
the problem?  Maybe then the vet will work out something.
Also let us know what city you are in because maybe someone here knows a vet
that can help.  You may have to drive a bit, but your bunny does need to have a
vet help.
To keep her comfortable, try massaging her tummy.  You can use pediatric
Phayzme or similar simethicone product for any gas she may have.  Try to keep
her eating and drinking.  Pedialyte can be given and it will help just to keep
her from dehydrating too much.
Maybe you could offer to work a few days at the vet to pay off your bill.  Then
the vet will see how serious you are about being able to take care of your
bunny.  I think most vets will make exceptions to the rule once in awhile,
especially if you are persistent.  So keep trying:)

Try a little pinapple juice (really).  Also contact the house rabbit society
and find a vet in your area that deals with rabbits.  Rabbits can take a little
sickness straight to death so act right away.  Good luck
