GI (Gastrointesinal) Stasis

GI stasis (aka ileus) is a disease in which a bunny's gut slows down or stops completely. GI stasis is often fatal within days if no treatment is offered to the bunny.

Symptoms of GI stasis:

Note: Not all of the below symptoms may be present in a bunny having GI stasis. But if you notice any symptoms, even just one of them, presenting itself in your bunny, it's a situation you need to take action of.


1. No appetite
  • The bunny does not eat or only consumes a few strands of hay throughout half the day.

Blooming Desert Roses

 Dark-pink flower.

Pink flower.

Not easy taking these pics! I have to turn the pot to a correct angle to get the best lighting - not to mention several ants that bite.

Jippie, The Runner Eater

After a year of planting ... our spider plants finally grew runners to reproduce. There were even flowers! So glad I have a mobile phone with an excellent camera.

  

All of the runners escaped the all-plant eater, Little Ruppie (yes, this is a new nickname for Jippie :P) but alas, one of them got eaten today. 

I went to put away a plastic bag, turned around and saw the runner in Jippie's mouth. All happened in less than 3 seconds.


Jippie wanting to eat the remaining part of the runner

See where he bit it?

Jippie acting innocent: "What runner? Nope, didn't see any."

Orange Butterfly

Saw this fella on our willow tree. He/she is pretty high up! I had to stand on a chair to get this photo! Finally, I got a photo of an orange butterfly. I've seen some flutter around for quite a while, but they didn't stop and rest, so I couldn't take a pic then. Now, however ... Yay for me! :D
