Gastrointestinal stasis

Gastrointestinal stasis

When a rabbit's digestive system is compromised, either due to illness, pain or stress, then their hydration and food intake is likely to be reduced, which can lead to a reduction in gut motility (gastrointestinal (GI) stasis). This is a serious condition, so you MUST seek veterinary advice immediately if you think you rabbit has GI stasis.
