llo hello help help!! we have just this morning befriended a new bunny owner and her bunny is not doing well. given all the trouble my bunnies have had over the years i thought i could help her, but she seems to have a set of issues that i have yet to encounter. so if ANY of you bunny EXPERTS out there have some ideas, pretty please GO TO THE COMMENT SECTION, as she will be checking there for any advice.
first of all she's in the UK...in east riding of yorkshire in a town called hull, so any vet recommendations would be a great start!! the bunny is going to the vet tomorrow, not sure if the vet is an exotics specialist or not, but this woman says the vet treats guinea pigs, rabbits, hedgehogs etc...so hopefully!!! although she thinks this is just a regular vet.
this bunny has lost half her body weight. she stopped eating as much as she usual a couple of weeks ago and these last couple of days she has dropped off quite a bit more. only eating parsley, spinach, apple, no pellets and i don't know whether or not she's been eating hay.
she has been urinating more frequently and the urine has a stronger odor and has not been going in her litter box. i'm not sure about her pooping. no drooling. very very thin. still grooming herself, looking for a lot of extra attention from her mama since last night, licking a lot. this is this woman's first rabbit so she's very new to bunny care and what to look out for...this is a beloved pet and any help or advice that you may have for her would be greatly appreciated. i've been piecing the details together through little notes back and forth so i'm sorry if i've missed important details! i just wanted to try to help her before i have to run off to work...once again, please go to the comments to help her if you have any ideas, she'll be checking.
