What is GI Stasis?
World widely know as the silent killer, a potentially deadly condition in which the digestive system slows down or stops completely. Rabbits intestines is meant to be always moving, when stress happens due to pain, weather changes, sudden noises or whatever is bothering them, a rabbit will sit back on a corner and stop eating. You will only have few hours to save your bunny's life, if you catch soon enough. It is life threatening and should be considered an emergency.
The key is to dissolve the blockage and get their intestines moving again. As they stop eating their gut become dry and stop moving. Your biggest concern is to hydrate their stomach by force feeding, so the rhythm of their digestive tract is regained. I use and recommend Critical care by Oxbow, SARX by Sherwood, both are recovery food and can be purchased on my rabbit supplies page, but you can also use baby food like the one above. Stay away from sweet stuff. You must feed them by syringe every hour until they start eating on their own.

The past few months have been so busy for us! We wanted to have a cow to supply our family with fresh dairy products, so we have been busy looking for the perfect cow and the perfect barn builder.
Now we can breath again, and enjoy taking photos, blogging and talking to you on Facebook.
Fall is a busy time for us with our breeding program, it is a better time for the does as the temperature are cooler. We have reduced our herd quite a lot recently. As you well know our goal isn't to produce many pet quality rabbits,so once in a while we have to take a hard look in our herd and decide who can help us on achieving our goals.
We only want to breed Holland lops who represent the breed to standard so we only have 13 adult Holland lops. Becoming stagnant can be easy when you love your rabbits, but if we breed pet quality we would never improve our herd.
We now have only three herd bucks and ten adult does. We are keeping a lot of our babies and selling only a few. Our waiting list is big right now and we are working to finally starting showing again. Talking about that.... We haven't been to shows recently because we refuse to show somebody else's breed. We want to represent our own rabbitry when we show. Our goal is to stand up in any show against anyone and feel good about it, so we have been working hard to produce our own herd. I have some very promising young bucks coming up and should find time to photograph them soon. Anyway, just wanted to give you an update on what we've been up to lately!
Oh I almost forgot to mention that my shipment of HairBusters is now here! you can order on the House Rabbit supply page.
What a blessing it is to have a milking cow! I can't imagine life without it. Seriously, how did we go from fresh farm raised food to plastic make believe food? Most people I know don't cook or know how and I can't understand how did mankind got here. I'm so grateful for living a simple life. On September 9,2017 we brought home Bella a mini jersey milking cow. Since then we have been experiencing how food used to be. We've made butter, whipping cream, (Which lari made a delicious Tiramisu cake we will enjoy today.)fresh cheese and Mozzarela. Oh my goodness I can't believe how amazing it is. We will start a new page on this website to share with you our adventures with Bella. Be sure to comment or ask questions!
Welcome to my Blog. I hope to inspire you to develop a wonderful relationship with your rabbits. I will share my thoughts and daily updates here. I hope you enjoy!
