    Please help if you have any ideas/suggestions. My rabbit, a 3yof California has stopped eating suddenly(since last night) and just sits humped up, grinding her teeth. I know that teeth grinding is a sign of discomfort or pain, but what can I do? I had this happen with a young flemish giant one time and there was nothing the vet could do that helped and she died. We tried everything and treated her for the gut stasis, but nothing. I am sooooo upset that my rabbit is going down that same path...[​IMG]. Her name is Princess and she is my buddy.

    I am no expert, but a good friend of mine said that if she has no other symptoms, like sneezing, runny nose, etc....... then it could very well be a hair ball. You can try to give her cat hairball meds, but if she does not get any better I would find a vet to take her to.
