Petromalt

So I noticed the strung together little poops. Thats a blockage sign from what i've read. Well Coco is getting plenty and plaenty of fiber every night. She still seems to be eating well. I bought this product at Petvalu hoping it would help. --also leads me to think that her coughing was hairball related. -Well wish us luck.

yep petromalt, or laxatone. Both work great. I'd give her some every other week or so just as a preventative, because hairballs can be devastating with rabbits.

From what i've been told and have read it means bunny has fur in the lil tum tum. since they cant hack it up it creates blockage and in time could seriously decrease bun's appetite and pooping. The string poop is a symptom. Cut back on pellets increase greens and hay (high fiber). Maybe try a treatment like this petromalt im trying? Yea i think the blockage is caused by all their face rubbing n grooming in heavy shedding times. Oh I was once also told some pineapple juice mixed in with water has an enzyme that might help break up the blockage. Thats essentially all my knowledge on the topic. Good luck with your bunny. I know what your going through.
