My bunny lately has been having some diarrhea /wet poo and I'm extremely worried about him because he is like another member of the family.

I want to do anything I can to help because I care about him so much.

He has had a normal diet of pellets, hay, water, and carrots/celery and has not had a problem at all in the past.

He is a dwarf lionhead bunny and is about 6-7 years old and is not neautred.

I don't know if this is stress related or from old age, but I clean his bottom almost daily so he does not have to sit in it and be uncomfortable.

He does not show any sign of behavior change and does not show signs of soreness/fatigue/sickness.

The only change there has really been is his bedding because they discontinued the bedding I used to buy him.

I had to switch from the cyndrical paper pellets to just the normal paper bedding that comes in a compact package to be distributed in the cage after "fluffing it out". So, it is essentially the same material in a different shape.

Please help with any feedback possible, thank you so much!

I'm sorry to hear of buffys problem. Dental problems can cause loose droppings, so hopefully his vet could investigate for you. Good luck.
