Roo is ok. She has mites ! And a slight infection in her ear from the itching. She was given ear drops and a parasite treatment and Boomer had to have it too just incase he got them from her. She will be fine. She was weighed while at the vets and was 2.355 kilos. Crazy! She also got her vaccinations while there and let the vet know exactly how she felt with lots of thumping of disapproval on the metal examination table. Haha. She was a very good girl though. I still feel bad that I didn't notice earlier but what's happened has happened. All is well here
Roo's ear looks great now. Still a few days of ear drops to go but she's doing fantastic! Hates the drops and hates me when she knows I have the drops in my hand! Boomer and Roo have a whole routine now with it... 630 pm too gets her ear drops every night. She gets put back in the pen and then uses her back legs to shove in her ear to then lick off all the ear drops. Boomer comes along and shoves his head down in her ear when she has finished doing it herself. They must taste good or something because they both love to eat them. As much as I try and stop them they just go ahead and do it anyways so I don't bother now. Must not taste too bad or be too harmful as they are both good Roo is now weighing 2.355 kilos ! That was the last weigh in at the vets. She's growing quick I printed off some photos from the first day we got her and I forgot how little she was then I found baby photos of tiny boomer and can't believe either of them was ever that small. So cute! I love watching them grow! I even asked my partner the other night if we can let Roo has some babies before we desex her so I can have more bunnies and get to watch them grow from the start. Still undecided on that though but will consider it. I'd be happy to keep all of the babies she has ! (Just one litter) knowing me though it won't happen cause I don't have the time to care for babies so she will prob just end up desexed sooner rather than later. We don't have anyone I know who has a large male intact bunny anyways so would have to find a date for her anyways before she could even have babies .
I'm glad to hear Roo is doing good now! Its so scary when something's wrong with your pets, especially when there's blood involved. I am glad it was nothing too terribly bad and I hope she gets to feeling better!
Cute little trouble makers you got there, Roo is very pretty! I love vienna marked rabbits, haha. I have a real sweet spot for them. :hearts
I'm curious to know what she was once crossed with. She obviously isn't a pure Flemish but I still call her one due to her size. She's such a sweetie. Very friendly to everyone and always climb on your lap for a head scratch
Flemish can be BEW and vienna-marked so she very well could be part Flemish at least. Perhaps some Standard chin or giant chin for her coloring? I don't think Flemish in that pattern are very common but I imagine chinchilla can appear in a lot of mixes if the genetics are just right, even if its not a native color in one of the breeds.
Regardless, she seems very sweet though full of mischief! She's a gorgeous girl.
