Question My rabbit Oreo, has been acting different today. I few days ago she was sick with diarrhea but now she seem to be fine health wise. She is eating and drinking, but not pooping or peeing yet. In her cage she has a board that she loves to lye on and we also keep her food dish on there as well. But now she will not eat out of her food dish or get off her board to drink water from her bottle, I have to move it to her so she will drink. She is also grinding her teeth a bit louder then usual. I don't know why she is acting this way? Could it be due to having diarrhea? or could it be from the seasons changing here in Canada? Can you please get back to me because I am worried something is very wrong with her.
I've lived with companion rabbits for more than 35 years, and consider them members of my family. I can answer any questions about the biology and health of rabbits, from the commonplace to the unusual. But please note:

If your rabbits is LETHARGIC
If your rabbit is NOT EATING
If your rabbit is PHYSICALLY INJURED (including broken bones)
