Hi. I'm new here. I have a 7 year old dwarf named Yuki. Two days ago I noticed his appetite and drinking decreasing. He is very hormonal at the moment. He has had health problems in the past, and due to these health problems, I didn't think it was safe to get him neutered. He doesn't get hormonal very often, but when he does, he's pretty out of control.
I know he's uncomfortable and stressed when he has hormone problems, so could this be the reason he's not eating and drinking as much? I am able to get him to drink a little from a dish, and he eats a few pellets. He'll eat whole baby carrots, but he hardly touches the lettuce which he used to gobble down.
A few days ago my diabetic cat, who was in remission and didn't need insulin, got sick and started needing insulin again. This stresses me out to no end, and there is definitely an environment change because of it. I know rabbits are sensitive to things like that. Could this be effecting Yuki?
I have 2 very sick kids, and I'm just at my wits end! I am completely broke after dealing with my cat's diabetes, and borrowing money from my parents. The thing is I can't get Yuki to a vet until Monday. Over here many places are closed on Sundays, and I couldn't go today because of a snowstorm. The vet that I take him to is an hour's drive away. There are no vets trained for rabbits here. If he has GI stasis, I know it's very serious, but there's nothing I can do vet-wise. Is there a way to treat him at home? I've already massaged his stomach, but that was all I could think of. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
