So we restarted him on his anti-gas and anti-gas producing bacteria antibiotic (he had just stopped his course of treatment on those the day before his follow-up). She also started him up on a med that will cause his digestive tract to move a little more (we were unable to do this one the first time because she wasn't convinced there wasn't a blockage somewhere). Also, I had stopped with the Critical Care syringe feeding because his interest in food was high and Mario is just not cooperative with the syringe feeding. But I've been scolded gently and told I am to continue with the Critical Care until everything is 100% normal. I am a little dubious he'll ever eat his normal volume of food when I'm stuffing him with Critical Care, but the vet seems convinced it will happen.
So that is where we are now. Still not out of the woods :( The good news is that his personality is pretty normal so that keeps me from worrying about him all hours of the day vs. a couple here and there.
I'm getting better at the bunny-burrito to feed Mario and figured out if I hold him up like a baby the stuff goes down a little easier. He's a smart little rabbit, though, and if he can do it, will tuck his nose into the burrito to try to hide.
|Mario wishes he were a turtle.|
I won't steal Mario's Monday thunder with any race stuff today. Tune back in tomorrow for that.
