5 days ago my bunny seemed really poorly, took her to the vets and she stayed in over night with GI Stasis, they phoned and said she was going to die but the next day she was fine and came home! i was told to give her 3 different medicines twice a day and for the past 4 days she's had no problem and has sat and taken them but today she kicks me when i try and give it to her. she's completely back to normal and pooping and eating etc so can i stop giving her the medicine or if i do will it come back?

she's got a painkiller and two medicines to get her gut moving. should i stop now or if it not when do i?

Talk to your vet and see what they think. It would be rubbish to stop the meds too soon and for her to relapse.

If the medication isn't too liquid and will sit in a blob, do what I'm doing for antibiotics for one of mine and put a blob in a mint or basil leaf and feed it to him. I get through about 10 mint leaves for a 1ml dose, but it vanishes! He really fights if I try and syringe him.
