Patch

Patch turned his nose up at dinner tonight and refused to eat which is SO unlike him. I just called the vet and we have an appointment at 9 am tomorrow. He's laying around and looks very tired. I'm worried about him....

That is worrisome.....Bunny Lady at Houseful of Rabbits gives pineapple juice from a syringe. What about very gentle tummy massage? We send wishes for a quick and complete return to bunny health.

Oh dear.. it always worries me when the bunnies go off their food. Could he be having gas in his tummy? Does his tummy feel hard to you? For gas, infant gas drops work well (with Simethicone as the active ingredient) - 1ml per hour, for 3 hours. Then 1ml again 8 hours after that.

Yohji has gone off his food 3 times so far, and sits hunched away in a quiet corner. Scared me each time, but just as I decide to syringe feed him gas drops, he picks himself up again. I hope it's the same for Patch! Get well soon, Patch. We're all thinking of you.

Get better soon, Patch! I'm hoping he's just depressed about the Groundhog's prediction.

Eat and poop, Patch! Be good for the vet and do exactly as he or she says!
