Pain Relif in bunnies

So after doing some looking up, I read that you can give .3 ml of infants "phazyme" for gas... This is nice to know. But Akina doesnt have gas, her infection is bothering her as is the swelling from the tooth extraction. She is displaying pretty much all signs of pain:
Signs of pain in bunnies
  • sitting in hunched position
  • reluctance to move
  • moves about slowly, or limps
  • depression/lethargy
  • loss/decrease in food and water intake
  • tooth grinding
  • hiding or staying tucked in a corner(only is normally unusual behavior
  • dropping food from the mouth
  • crying/grunting when handled
  • unkempt coat from lack of grooming
  • taking long time to eat
  • cold stiff body

I am wondering if there is anything I can give her while we're both home. The vet is closed on Sundays and tomorrow I have an exam until 11 am so I cant get to the vet until then. Is there anything I can give her today to ease her discomfprt that wont dirupt her Baytril??

There's really nothing over the counter that's safe for rabbits that are in pain. Typically they're given metacam after surgery.

I called the vet and they might hook me up with some PediaPred tomorrow. She had that before and it was grape flavor so she actually enjoyed it ^.^ ( tho I dont think its really all that good with the sugar thas in it)

Don't know much about PediaPred. Have only used Metacam.

Thanks, I had Metacam too, the company let the vet know it's off record use for bunnies and I had to sign a waiver....I only had her on Metacam for 3 days though and was afraid to go get more b/c of the side effects.
