Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in small animals and exotics.

Can you please tell me if Bun Buns is passing stool?

Is she passing Urine?

Has she been eating if not how long?

Any sneezing runny eyes?

Is she an inside house rabbit?

Is she conscious if you arouse her?

Can she move if awakened?

Joan

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
