Syringe feeding your rabbit
Syringe feeding (supportive feeding) your rabbit is a very important part of recovery from gastrointestinal stasis (gut stasis), and in some cases is the most important part of recovering from surgery or illness. If you need to continue syringe feeding your rabbit following surgery or illness your vet will discuss this with you and will show you how to do this before you take your rabbit back home. It is important to be gentle and persistent with your rabbit as providing an adequate intake of food can be the turning point of recovery. Many rabbits dislike being syringe fed, but it is important you persevere and are successful.
