Rabbits/Young rabbit's irregular poops

Hello, and thank you so much for your reply!

This is really the answer I was most afraid of. My rabbit is white with a black "mustache", ears, splatters on her back and around her eyes - so her color matches the megacolon diagnosis as well.

Is there anything else I can do to help her stave off the complications of megacolon, if this is megacolon, for as long as possible? She's currently still predominantly on a diet of hay and water, though I've started slowly adding pellets to the mix - she's currently getting around 1,5 teaspoons of pellets a day. If her stomach seems to handle it well, I was planning on starting to give her greens again in a few weeks.

Her poops are still irregular, but the consistency is regular and she eats quite a lot. She also sometimes passes completely regular poops - would that happen in a megacolon rabbit?

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:

RULE #1:

Find a rabbit vet at for immediate help, and don't risk your bunny's life by spending time asking questions online! If you can't get in touch with your vet, read these Emergency Sick Bunny Instructions.

If you have found a wild baby rabbit, please read these EMERGENCY INSTRUCTIONS FOR WILD BABY RABBITS and then use this link to FIND A LOCAL WILDLIFE REHABILITATOR who can give you the right advice.

RULE #2:
Help me help you! Please make your subject line informative if you have an urgent question. then LET ME KNOW IN THE SUBJECT LINE so I can give your question highest priority over non-urgent questions. If you don't do this, then I can't guarantee timely assistance!
