Bri is not feeling well


last night I noticed my rabbit hadn't eaten all her pellets, so I went to check on her, and she was out of water.  I refilled it and she went to drink, so I thought all was good (she stops eating when she runs out of water)

An hour or so later, I noticed she still had pellets.  Not totally unreasonable... but I went in any way and offered her a half of a yogurt drop (i give them very sparingly, she loves them, but they make her stools soft) and she didn't eat it.  That was unusual, and I got a little concerned, but she looked good otherwise - maybe a little bit on the quiet side as she let me pick her up easily.

This morning the yogurt treat is still there untouched.  The water hasn't really decreased, and there were still pellets.  I picked her up again, and she has urine all over her back end.  She produced a nice looking pellet while I held her, which is good, but she did sound a smidge congested.  This is so not good.  I went to the store and got her some   fresh pineapple.  Not sure it is going to help her, but it is something.  I'm going to try to get some food in her a little later if she isn't perked up by this afternoon.  Since she is still producing pellets, I don't think this is an emergency, but I can see it going down that road if she isn't eating
