    "Constipated" bunnies are in a state called GI stasis. It is a MEDICAL EMERGENCY!! If your rabbit stops pooping, get them to a vet immediately.

    If they are still pooping but either lesser amounts or the poos are smaller, then they are in GI stress and need to eat hay (no sweets) to get their gut moving well again. You don't want them to get to the point of no poos.

    Try feeling pineapple juice in a syringe, it works as a laxative for them but don’t do it too often, there’s lots of sugar in fruit
