Hello! Was the increase from 3mls to 10mls under vet guidance? Of course I know nothing about this case, the size of rabbit or the food's nutritional content so<b> </b>this should be clarified with your vet, who has all the context. Another reason rabbits sometimes stop eating is if some underlying factor eg a tooth is causing them pain. Rabbits don't show pain very obviously and many owners will miss it if they haven't been trained in what to look for. I'm sure that your vet looked at your rabbits' teeth, for example, to make sure that they are not penetrating the oral tissues etc. Another point worth making is that it can take a few days for a rabbit to start producing faeces again once they are being syringe fed, as the food has a lot of intestine to travel through. We would strongly recommend keeping in touch with your vet at this point, so that if changes need to be made then you will be made aware of them.
