And to justsay oh yeah she a very old rabbit, litter box trained but healthy???come on...
I agree they had to of known about her condition, now correct me if I'mwrong but wasn't the person who first called you working in a clinic???I don't get it why didn't she mention it or try and check her out firstbefore she organised for you to pick up daphnee??? I know there areprotection laws for animals, does the clinic in which the girl workhave procedures to follow? Like checking out animals before passingthem to their "forever homes"

she did not come directly from theclinic, she came from the owners house. Truthfully, i am not sure if itwas the clinic acting on her "bennifit" or if the girl working there,had only heard of her (ie: maybe they placed fliers at the clinic) Hadshe come from the clinic, i sure hope they would have checked her out.my boss just called them all idiots, and said if they saw her at theclinic they must be very stupid:?She is quite opinionated..Course I have to agree on that one. No one was giving me a full story,so I only have peices to fit together. I understand the dayprior to her trip she was dropped of at the transporters house,directly from the owners house. neither of which was the vetinaryworker.. THe lady who contacted me directly does rabbit rescue, buthers are outdoor rabbits, she goes to our clinic, and I believe she wascontacted directly by the clinic worker from the otheroffice. i am upset by the fact thatshe was in thecondition she was in. I donothave the number of theorginal owner, I only have contact numbers of the transporter,and I think I still have the clinic workers number, but I'dhave to check.

Gabby,

I can't believe the photos of Daphne that you sent.

How's she healing? Is she getting used to you?

can't pick her up, a it hasn't been long enough to let her hipsettl, so when i need to take her out i have her hop into her pet taxiand i pick that up, thats how i give her, her meds. but she enjoys theattention.. i think she is getting used to me for sure, it used to beyou touched her sides or tummy and she bolted, today when i needed herto move, just to clean a spot in her cage, i had my hand on her sidesher tummy, i had to "tickle her tummy" to get her to move 'LOL her facestill is swollen, but it feels ok, it's only been around 10 days or sosince surgery.. she has a min of 30 days worth antibiotics... and withas large as it was, we may have to go back in again... but paws arecrossed that we got it all...and hopefully nything left will be knockedout by her meds... Abcesses in general oon the face are hard to dealwith in buns, they have a high rate of reoccurence... but i'moptamistic, I have a bun i rescued nearly 2 years ago, who haone on her face at that time, was even eating away at the bone*knock onwood* she's been abcess free for nearly 2 years, hers was a bite woundrelation... Pay close attention will be posting pics in each post..Maybe i should start her a new update post??

it is good to hear fromothers she is looking better, I thought so, but sometimes you don'treally notice till someone else points it out...she is currently on 1med, 1 cc of baytril once a day.. makes less stress on her, doing itonce a day, and i compounded it into liquid so it was easier to take.Normally I just pill my buns if they need meds, but not being able toreally pick her up or move her with the hip i needed an easier methodof medicating her, this works for now.. Banana flavored baytril;)

thanks:)her looks are deceiving, she is skinnier than she appears, but yesshe is starting to fill in htose hollow spots. All that loose fur andskin makes her appear "puffier". but She defently has been showing mehow relaxed she is, she has actualy let me touch her belly, with only alittle "skin quiver" instead of bolting like the devil was after her.

she thanks you for the thoughts and prayers. THeinjurry is from before I got her, but we were so centered on all herother ailments that it went unnoticed for a few days... mind you shouldwas checked over by 2 vets and myself, so we are all rather sheepishabout it, but i know none of us ever even thought about setting herdown and watching her hop..

and she didn't move much after surgery except to eat drink, and potty,it wasn't till a couple days after while on her pain meds that shedecided to take a stroll down my hallway that i noticed she was lackingthe use of her right hind foot. In one more week e will xrayto be sure her hip has not moved or dislocated again, untill then Ionly pick her up if I have no other choice, I've mannaged not to pickher up for an entire week, I move her by having her hop in and out of apet taxi and i move her in that. BTW she LOVES nose kisses...I tried o snap a pic bt all you could see was my hair :p
