    Bunny Break (sort of)

    Hi all, as some of you may know, I lost my boy Charlie a couple of weeks ago. He was my only bun since I lost Buddy then Carmel barely a year apart, and then Charlie barely a month after Carmel. Charlie's death affected me in a way that I didn't think possible for me. It broke my heart and my...

    Goodbye sweet boy

    Well, it's only been 14 hours since you passed away so suddenly. I posted my last entry in your blog last night after you left me, and I was going to wait to post here, but decided to do it now. This is the only forum I hate posting a new topic in. I finally slept for a while early this...

    OMG another emergency- RESOLVED

    I just gave Charlie his nighttime pellets and after a few bites I heard him choking. He ran to hide behind the couch. He keeps choking making this awful noise. I don't know what to do, I don't even know what's happening. He's opening his mouth when he makes this choking noise and he almost looks...

    Anyone know about Chard?

    Swiss Chard Green Chard Red Chard Is there a significant difference in these? I've been looking at safe lists and some list Swiss Chard as ok and some just say Chard is ok. I'd like to try introducing Green Chard to Charlie but want to be sure it's ok first. I am produce challenged...

    Goodbye for now sweet girl

    My sweet Carmel, I could almost hear the joyful celebration from the bridge when you left me this past Thursday. Mama is glad for you that you get to be with your Buddy boy again. And that you no longer have to suffer the pain inflicted on your fragile earthly body. As much as I want you to...

    Emergency please help: RIP Carmel :(

    Carmel is in really bad shape right now. She cannot stand up and she's breathing very rapidly and her heart is pumping very fast. She's peeing and pooping herself. Please reference my other thread called -- Very Bad News -- for the background on this. I called my vet's emergency number and...

    Very Bad News

    I just got home from the vet. Carmel has been "not herself" lately. Her heart and lungs seemed to be working really hard. I guess I'm just overly watchful of that stuff since I lost my wonderful Buddy to heart failure a year ago. So I told the vet what was going on and he took her back for...

    Unusual heartbeat or respiration

    I noticed tonight that Carmel's heartbeat is not normal. It looks like it's "heaving" and this is not usual for her. I have noticed that she's had a few wet sounding sneezes over the past 2 days, but no wetness on her nose or paws. I'm wondering if maybe this is a URI issue. I'm praying it's...

    I met my very first rattie yesterday!

    I've always loved learning about new animals. While I've never rushed over to see the ratties in a pet store, I found posts here from rattie owners to be very interesting! I even did some research on my own because I think these little fellas are really awesome. Yesterday we went to visit my...

    Don't it just figure?

    Well, I am pretty cheap when it comes to purses. When I was a teenager I always bought ridiculously expensive brands and such, but sort of grew out of that and then got down right cheap. But I do love purses, and find myself browsing the newest and prettiest quite often. I just don't buy them...

    mean rabbits

    Geez. What is the reason that some rabbits are so innately mean? Is there a book on the reasoning behind this? If so, I'd appreciate the enlightenment. But I've read about the "wild" roots that cause the defensive aggressive behavior, is there more to it? My Charlie has been here now for six...

    sterile abscess?

    Tonight as I was making a tent to give Charlie his 12th bicillan injection, I felt a small,hard lump near his shoulder under the skin. Is this possibly what's called a sterile abscess due to the injections? My searches for sterile abscesses are coming up poorly (I'm probably just too frazzled to...

    Vet Costs

    So, Charlie was at the vet again last Friday, and of course it was another expensive visit. I realized that I've never spent less than $250.00 for a bun vet visit. Ever! My vet (group) is reputedas the "be all end all" of rabbit savvy in my area, so I dunno. So I was just curious about the...

    Syphilis is back??

    Recap: A while back I posted about Charlie having fur loss and several scabby sores around his mouth. I took him to the vet who figured that it was Syphilis (although no tests were done), and prescribed Bicillan injections every other day for 21 days. While researching syphilis and talking to...

    silly bunny story

    Tonight I brought out my knitting basket and set it on the floor next to my feet. Charlie came over to check it out...sniffed it, peeked inside, poked it a little with his nose. So I'm happily knitting along when my hubby says "Ya know, Charlie's trying to get your attention." I hadn't...

    Oh, woe is me...

    Well, it is now October 3 and the weather is still acting like it's Summer.:X I am desperately craving some crisp, cool Autumn air but keep getting smacked in the face with heat and humidity! The weather man says it's going to be 90 degrees on Friday for pete's sake. I've lived here all my...

    Giving sub-q injections

    Since Charlie has now been diagnosed with syphilis, I tried to start his bicillan injections tonight. It was so awful. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've done bicillan injections once before on my bridge bunny, Buddy, but those went fine. My husband held him in place while I made the...

    mouth/lip inflammation??

    I am worried about Charlie's mouth. I noticed today when he had his chin up that his lips are somewhat red. At first it looked like there was no fur there and that it was totally inflamed. But upon closer inspection, I found the inflammation to be less but did notice some tiny bloody scabs on...

    Are these mini lop babies?

    Just wondering if someone could tell me if these are really mini lop babies. They are 6 weeks old. I looked up the breed and know that their ears don't necessarily "drop" yet but thought I'd ask for some expert opinions :) Don't know if the pics are able to help determine though or if they are...

    starving bunny??

    I am perplexed about Charlie's eating. He acts as though he is starving. I had to adjust his pellets recently because I noticed he was having excess cecals/runny poops that were smooshed in his pen. So I cut the pellets back. He always has timothy hay available, and gets his salad in the...
