Today’s post on rabbit digestion comes from Jodi McLaughlin. Jodi, a long-time holistic animal health provider, and owner and founder of The Blissful Bunny Massage Workshops, obviously has a soft spot for rabbits. I wrote about both acupressure and Jodi in more depth in a previous post, so I won’t repeat myself here, but don’t miss the story of her rabbit Diego; it is very touching.
I didn’t know much about the digestive issues of rabbits before doing a bit of research for this post, but it seems they are very susceptible to digestive disorders. If your rabbit, and especially if it is a baby rabbit, all of a sudden becomes lethargic, won’t eat and/or has diarrhea, take him/her to the vet immediately – they can die in just a few hours if not treated.
