Help!!! Advice ASAP!
Hoddy Toddy gets hay all the time, and 1/4 cup of ox-bow pellets in the morning and another 1/4 cup in the evening. He has a cage but roams free - only goes back to the cage to go to the bathroom, eat, drink, or if he wants to hang out there.
Yesterday I gave him his breakfast as usual and as usual he hopped on over and into his cage. Normally he scarfs his breakfast for a while and then either hangs out in the cage or hops out and does whatever. He took a couple bites of his breakfast, like maybe 3 bites, and then hopped out of his cage and went over to his little hiding nook behind a chair in the corner of the room. HE STAYED THERE ALL DAY LONG. He never finished his breakfast, never ate hay, never went to the bathroom.
I pet him and he enjoys that, but otherwise he's just basically been laying down for the past 24 hours. This morning I checked and I don't believe he went back to his cage all night long. There were 3 poos behind the chair - but that's it!
I'm really concerned. I called the vet and a girl answered the phone and was like "oh yeah that's bad." She put me on hold and came back and said, "well, the vet says it can wait until tomorrow." I was like, UH, YOU JUST RESPONDED "OH YEAH THAT'S BAD." And she was like, "well, he's booked today and says it's not really an emergency yet but he has an 11am appointment tomorrow and he can see Hoddy Toddy then."
What do I do?? I took the appointment and told her to please call me if anybody cancels because I can be right over.
Isn't it kind of really bad when a rabbit doesn't eat or go to the bathroom for like 24 hours?
