My Rabbit Doesn't Poop Well
If your rabbit stops going to the toilet, it's a warning sign!
I have a pet rabbit of about 4-5 months, living with me in Italy, city Milano.
Several weeks ago my rabbit stopped pooping well:
she did it little bit but the poops were very small and hard.
We took the animal to the vet who recommended to give Motilex (clebopride) 1ml/ once a day, zantadine (ranitidina) 0.2 ml/once per day and critical care food for rabbits every 6 hours and to do this therapy for five days.
After 2-3 days of treatment rabbit started to improve and in 5 days seemed to be absolutely fine.
For about 5 days after the treatment everything seemed to be fine, rabbit was active, ate well and pooped normally.
However, about a week ago we noticed that rabbit didn't poop throughout a day at all and started doing it at 7-8 pm in the evening only.
It lasted for 2 days after which we took her to the vet again.
The doctor did the ultrasound and told that the paries of the small bowel were enlarged probably because of enteritis and told us to do the same therapy as previous: Motilex (clebopride) 1ml/ once a day, zantadine (ranitidina) 0.2 ml/once per day and critical care if will be necessary plus the malt paste 1 cm/once a day.
The doctor told us to do this therapy for as long as 1-2 weeks.
Now it is almost a week of this therapy, the rabbit seems to be active, eats normally and drinks a lot, however she still poops only in the evening and at night ( in this periods she poops normally and a lot) but doesn't do it during the day.
We also did the blood tests for rabbit but the results haven't arrived yet.
So we just don't know what to do and if this treatment will help.
I also read that Motilex could be dangerous if given for long periods.
I would be very thankful if you could share your opinions regarding the treatment or your experience with such kind of diseases.
I'm sorry for any grammar or vocabulary mistakes as English is not my native language.
