Hi Lauren. It is really important you get your bunny to the vet today. This may be gastroinstestinal stasis, which means the movement in the intestines slows down or completely stops, due to the following factors: not enough fiber in the diet, stress, systemic disease (such as kidney or liver), blockage of the intestines due to food or hair, etc. She may still drink if the stasis isn't complete (that is, she's not completely blocked). You must have her seen by a vet ASAP, though, before it becomes a complete obstruction. She could die if not treated in a timely manner.

Please read this link, there is an entire section about gastrointestinal stasis:

Let me know how she does. Best of luck.
