    Cecotroph mess

    Hey guys, since the vet is firmly closed to nonemergency cases and hates giving advice over the phone... anybody have some insight? Starting in March, Delilah has been leaving what I’m pretty sure are cecotrophs smeared all over her favourite condo shelf on a semi-regular basis. At first it was...

    Ear culture came back MRSA

    I’m reeling right now, the pus in Delilah’s ear was cultured and the results came back MRSA. Actual literal MRSA. I’ve been advised to only handle her while wearing gloves, and to not let pregnant or immunodeficient people near her. How does this HAPPEN to us?! Lahi’s autopsy has come back “yes...

    How to plan euth for bondmate

    This is the most depressing topic ever, sorry. Lahi has developed malignant cancer that is now spreading throughout his body. We removed the first two tumours on his knee and toe but during the toe amputation, xrays revealed a mass in his lung and another was found in his mouth. He has two more...

    Quality of life for hind leg amputation?

    Opinions on quality of life for a rabbit after amputating a hind leg? My little old man Lahi very suddenly developed a huge growth on his right hind foot toe last week. I immediately called the vet to make an appointment, and that was today. In the week since, the growth has swollen and the...

    Aw Poop—why does it look like he smushed it into the carpet

    Woke up today to this: Lahi almost always leaves a scattering if poops in this part of the floor. Sometimes even a small pile. It’s fine, he’s 13, he’s allowed to poop outside the litter box, and it helps me keep an eye on his health, to be able to see his poops separately from Delilah...

    Teeth spontaneously vanishing

    I swear to any power listening that my buns have made it their life goal to develop every rare and weird health condition in existence. And today’s health condition is DISAPPEARING TEETH. I brought Lahi and Delilah to the OVC for a checkup on Lahi’s ear which had a tumour surgically removed in...

    Rabbit sleeping with his eyes open

    Recently I struck up a new friendship with a woman who fosters various rescue rabbits, and as we were furiously swapping cute bunny pictures, it came up that Lahi sleeps with his eyes open, to which she expressed shock. She’d never seen a rabbit do this! And then I was shocked right back...

    Safety of healing salve

    After Lahi’s surgery I decided I’d like to get some kind of salve/cream to put on his incision to keep it soft as it scars. It would suck for his ear to become all stiff, it’s kinda amazing as it is that he retains full muscle control of his ear after having the base cut open the way it was...

    Ear lump revealed to be possibly malignant melanoma

    I’m crying so hard right now, the vet just called me about Lahi’s cytology: melanoma with results that indicate it could be malignant. He’s had this small warty lump on the base of his ear for years now, but it didn’t do anything and so we didn’t worry about it. Mid-year this year, however, it...

    Stomach filler food

    So at the last vet appointment (at the Ontario Veterinary College Companion Animal Hospital! Basically the place all veterinarians in Ontario come from, specialists and experts bursting through the seams, which was very cool) I was emailed a copy of the patient charts from the appointment, which...

    Less messy litter

    So after a LOT of work I’ve made an epic condo for my buns in our new apartment. Previously Lahi and Delilah had to stay with my parents since my fiancé and I were living in a one-room basement apartment that wasn’t okay with pets. Furthermore, he has a strong asthmatic allergic reaction that...

    Would cat grass be safe to feed?

    I really want to give my buns more greens... but they're so expensive to buy! On her own Delilah would happily munch through an entire box of mixed spring greens a day. So, with our upcoming move out of a basement apartment into a high-rise apartment, I want to look into plants I can grow for...

    Found a large tumour on her dewlap

    I had a vet appointment booked for Delilah today to talk about her watery eye, which I posted about previously It did clear up a lot with regular expression, but then got worse again, so two weeks ago (my Dr is in very high demand) I booked a recheck appointment for her. I went in today to...

    Milky discharge from a single eye

    So this is more an FYI post than anything. I took Lahi and Delilah to the vet today for their annual checkup. They are extremely healthy, especially considering they are respectively 11 and 7 years old this year. However for the past few weeks I've noticed Delilah's cheek has been wet. Just...

    What is this worm thing?!

    I was petting Delilah as she sat on a towel and suddenly spotted what looked like a very tiny worm wiggling around. After I freaked out and shoved Delilah away, I couldn't see it... until I discovered what looked like a white cocoon tube that the thing had withdrawn itself into It was less...

    Corn is bad and the pet industry is disgusting

    I'm in the animal care field as a career so I've known for a while that the pet industry cares not a speck about whether or not products will harm the animals they're intended for. Marrow bones getting stuck on dog's jaws, rawhide being made with formaldehyde, hamster balls in general... But...

    Is microchipping safe for rabbits?

    I worked at a vet clinic for a little while and came out of it with, among other things, the firm belief that every dog and cat owner should get their pet microchipped. It's easy, affordable, quick, and greatly increases the chance of getting your pet returned to you. Now, a nearby vet office...

    Is this chasing mean or playful?

    Lahi has been chasing Delilah a fair bit recently, and I honestly can't tell if it's friendly or not. I've posted a video on my bunny blog, so you can see precisely what's happening. http://lahi-n-delilah.tumblr.com/post/131641304797/more-recently-lahi-has-been-chasing-delilah-a Indications...

    Is this wildflower deadnettle? And therefore safe?

    Letting my buns enjoy the beautiful spring day in the (thoroughly rabbit-proofed) backyard And there's a new plant growing. They're not at all interested in it, but I've been trying to identify it just in case. I think it's purple deadnettle, which as part of the mint family is 100%...

    Sudden obsession with carrying things?

    I don't know if this is a problem but it is a sudden change in behaviour, which should always be monitored carefully, and since I don't want to be running to the vet over something that seems pretty harmless I figured I'd ask public opinion. If it's not a problem, it's **** cute and should...
