Barney is 2 years old. He is passing urine and faeces normally however will only eat vegetables (will not eat nuggets anymore) and has lost 0.5kg in weight in less than 2 weeks. He is not his usual happy self, his eyes are really dull and he looks really miserable. He has lost his confidence in climbing up and down the ramp in his hutch. I have asked different vets about getting a blood test to know exactly what is wrong with him as It is breaking my heart seeing him like this giving him various types of medication which makes him uncomfortable when administering. None of the vets I have seen seem to be very helpful in getting to the bottom of it. They have presumed it is either E cuniculi or middle ear infection. The treatment for both of these does not appear to be working so he could have something else wrong with him and could be in pain. I don’t know whether to get him put to sleep as he is not the same rabbit anymore and appears worse each day, or to hang on longer rather than jump to conclusions.
