    Cecotroph mess

    Okay, this took some digging but I think I have the timeline straight now. When Delilah was first diagnosed with inner ear abscesses August 2019 after I noticed her flinching away from her ears being touched and itching at her ears, I insisted we first try Duplocillin injections, because that...

    Cecotroph mess

    Thanks JBun! I’ll definitely poke around to see if I can find anybody with Bene bac. I’m in the same area as Rabbit Rescue, so perhaps they’ll have a stock I can purchase from so I’m not waiting a month for online shopping delivery. I‘ll definitely cut out on the veggies and greens—I was...

    Cecotroph mess

    Also, Delilah is 8 years old! But she doesn’t act it, and her body shows very few signs of aging compared to how Lahi was at age 8. She hasn’t slowed down at ALL. Her eyes are slightly cloudy, and her teeth are just a tiny bit pointy in a way that has the vet recommending a dental just because...

    Cecotroph mess

    I only put her on Critical Care three days ago after I was cleaning the condo and realized that these poops were all through the whole thing. If they are cecotrophs (which I suspect they are because her normal poops in her litter box are fine, and these are all very dark and squishy until they...

    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...

    Calling those with deaf bunnies...

    Delilah is deaf—she came to us mostly deaf in the first place, and the only reason we noticed was that unlike Lahi, saying her name didn’t get a response. It was my habit to, if they were doing something they shouldn’t, to say their name and clap once, which would cause them to momentarily...

    Questions about my bunny and weed?

    *sorry, gonna correct myself: MOST highs are the results of toxins interfering with your bodily functions. Cocaine produces a high by mimicking the natural happiness hormones and absolutely FLOODING your brain with HAPPY. So technically that’s not a high caused by toxic interference. However...

    Questions about my bunny and weed?

    Hey so I’m going to address specifically the marijuana itself rather than the smoke. I live in Canada where we’ve legalized weed for human usage, our medical consensus is that as long as your brain has finished developing, it’s essentially harmless. It has many benefits for pain relief, anxiety...

    Ear culture came back MRSA

    Yep, so she’s going to be on chloramphenicol for the next 2 months in the hope that clears it up, and then we’ll probably have to do a CT scan to make sure ($600, ewwww) My big concern right now is to get the discharge from her blocked tear ducts cultured. If the MRSA is just in her ears...

    Ear culture came back MRSA

    Also, this is tragic, I’ve been told to try to only handle her with gloves, and absolutely no kisses. Delilah LOVES kisses. Kisses is how she says hi, kisses is how she begs for food. SAYING NO TO THIS FACE IS ACTUAL LITERAL TORTURE.

    Ear culture came back MRSA

    Timeline: February 2019 - pus was found in Delilah’s ears and cleaned. They talk to me about the risk of inner ear abscesses due to her being a lop. August 2019 - I see Delilah scratching at her ears a lot and ducking my hand, take her in for checkup and she now has developed abcessss at the...

    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...

    I need a crash course in bunny body language PLEASE!!!

    Every bunny is different and some just aren’t affectionate. Lahi was super bossy, loved to come over and poke and prod at me, climb all over me, but the moment I touched him his ears would flatten and I’d get the worst evil eye. HOW DARE YOU LAY HANDS ON MY ESTEEMED PERSON. 13 years and only one...

    Do you think bell collars are bad for a bun?

    Lol Delilah is deaf so will learn her name precisely never. But she has a sixth sense for when the food bin or the fridge is opened, so that’s as good as calling her name—she ZOOMS over. Lahi, though... his favourite thing was to find shadowy corners to hide in so he could poke your ankle when...

    Do you think bell collars are bad for a bun?

    10/10 would recommend microchipping. It’s safe, easy, cheap, and forever. But as mentioned... it only works if someone thinks to scan for it. Whenever I bring Delilah outside I always put her in a Y front harness that has a name tag with my phone number, as well as a tag indicating that she is...

    Weird bump in rabbit’s ear

    It doesn’t look like either of Lahi’s malignant lumps—neither red and inflamed nor showing necrosis from rapid tumour growth. It might have some resemblance to Lahi’s melanoma from when it was benign? His was darkly pigmented which stood out against his pink skin, but it had a bit of a flaky...

    Weird bump in rabbit’s ear

    Lahi got something like that in 2014, but pigmented black. I showed it to every single rabbit-savvy vet I found for years and they all sort of shrugged and said “it’s not doing anything or bothering him, so it’s probably nothing.” Then, a little more than a year and a half ago, it tripled in...

    Oldest bunny?

    Lahi passed away last week. I’ve been celebrating his birthday as the anniversary of his adoption, which was Jan 6, but realistically he was already at least 3-4 months when I got him. So he was 13. I’m quite upset because he was actually really healthy, every vet commented on how they...

    How to plan euth for bondmate

    In the end, it took Delilah several hours before she finally left Lahi’s side, and even then I’m not sure she was done—a couple people entered the room right before she left and went to her litter box. We waited but she didn’t return, and it was getting late, so we called it. She started off...

    How to plan euth for bondmate

    Thank you everyone for your support and advice. He’s gone. The vet was willing to do it right away, and there was no good reason to wait another day for Lahi to be in more pain. We brought his owl cave so he could be in that and feel safe. Delilah was there for him. We’re at home right now...
