    Been on a streak of bad luck lately it seems. I have a 1 year old lionhead doe that was covered in foamy diarrhea this afternoon. She was not like this this morning at feeding. Its been raining for weeks but today was pretty warm but not hot.
    Ideas and treatment?

    I bathed her butt earlier and checked on her when I got home from tsc. No poopy butt. I'll check her in the morning too before I leave. I'm going to the city so I'll be around petsmart and Petco. I hope they will have something. I feel awful for her.

    hoping to find some benebac tomorrow. Tsc doesn't carry it and I'm in the boonies. I don't know any other to get.

    They all get hay and the same pellet feed. This bale is either Timothy or Timothy/alfalfa. It stays in the shed so its dry. No weeds or grass. I tried feeding some last month and they have absolutely no interest in them.

    I don't know if it would work for you but I got a jar of powdered pro bio. From TS and put in water, either drink from the pail for the goats or syringe if i got to get it in quick...could you put in the water feeder for her hutch ?
    I have even opened otc pro bio that I take and used it...wally world has it cheap on the equate brand....may be worth a shot....good luck :frow

    It's pretty strange for an adult rabbit to have diarrhea...is she outside? in a hutch/cage? or on the ground??
    Is she eating/drinking normal? Behavior normal? Lethargic? Any other symptoms?

    Is the diarrhea like soft pudding with a terrible smell? If it is, then it could just be soft cecotropes.
    When my kits get diarrhea I always give them Vets Preferred Advanced Anti-Diarrhea...I buy that on amazon and it lasts a long time.

    I found this link for TSC, they have Kaolin/Pectin...the same thing I mentioned above but just a different brand.
    https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/p...sion-anti-diarrheal-liquid-1-gal?cm_vc=-10005

    How much does she weigh?
    If she is over 4lbs give her 3 mls and if she is under 4lbs give 2 and a half mls by mouth with a syringe :)
    Hope this helps!!

    Shes outside in a wire bottom hutch. Shes in with another rabbit because she doesn't do well being alone.
    No other symptoms, shes eating and drinking normal. The diarrhea had almost a sour smell and was a light brown/orangish appearance. I'll take pics if it happens again.
    Shes not heavy at all maybe 2lbs.

    You may want to treat for cocci, diarrhea can be a symptom in adults as well as kits. Or have a vet do a fecal and see if there's something else going on. Even in wire hutches they can pick things up. Good luck, hope your bun feels better!
