Unhappy Help Guys ;_;

Coco is just lying around listlessly all day. She hasn't eaten since this morning but she did have a biot of water. Shes pushing her food bowl away. The vets are all closed. Should I buy some baby carrot food and give it to her with a small dropper? This worked with my other bunny once. I hate seeing her like this, Im getting scared.

is she eating hay or going to the bathroom? if not, i would suggest an emergency vet either today or tomorrow. the sooner the better, because she could have an intestinal blockage or teeth abnormalities and needs the ground down. Although, if she is not drinking or chewing on hay it could be her intestines are blocked. i would try and get her to an emergency vet very soon or call your vet early in the morning tomorrow and tell them it is an emergency. i hope everything works out and your bunny feels better very soon.

Go find an emergency vet and get your rabbit there ASAP. I think at this point any vet care is better than nothing.

Coco is at the vet's now. She's staying overnight. Tomorrow she's having her back teeth filed down. The vet thinks this might be the cause since he says she's showing some interest in eating, (looking to her food bowl, sniffing, and stuff, but not eating) plus he says they are a bit sharp and pointed. After she'll be getting anti-biotics, pain killers Im sure. I just hope she's ok and I can get her tomorrow. $325 for it all roughly, lol. Oh well she's my baby, as is Sugar.

yeah- the same exact thing happened last year with my bunny Thimble's back teeth. once she got them filed down she was back to normal after a couple days - so i'm sure Coco will be just fine now!
