Typically, clinical signs of gastrointestinal hypomotility and gastric stasis include loss of appetite or not eating. Symptoms often start with rabbits that stop eating pellets but will continue to eat treats followed by total lack of appetite.

  • Decreased appetite
  • Anorexia (no appetite)
  • Diarrhea
  • Decreased fecal production (small to very few fecal pellets)
  • Pain (rabbits often show hunched posture, grinding of teeth)
  • Decreased activity (often a sign of pain)
  • As the disease progresses, rabbits may become lethargic, weak, dehydrated, and shocky.

    Rabbits that don't eat or produce feces for 24-hour are considered an emergency.
