Don't worry, she's fine!! If you're referring to the "bunnies or me" thread, that was a necro'd thread from 2014 - our zoo has grown significantly since then . Sorry I've been slacking on updating my blog... been busy. Nala had me worried for a while - even after the dental surgery, I never saw her eat all that much and she was still reluctant/slow to eat pellets (wasn't coming running up to eat them like they were crack, but eventually she'd eat some or most). Nearly two weeks later, her appetite still didn't seem back to normal and she didn't seem all that excited about food aside from the occasional bit of "junk food" like craisins. She was still pooping and was maintaining her normal weight. I even bought some of the Sherwood Forest recovery food for her that has probiotics and other good stuff in it, but she wouldn't eat it. I did get her to eat some little biscuits from Oxbow that are for digestive health once a day, though. One day, I glanced into her cage and her eye looked weird and I swear she looked worried and kind of miserable. I took her out for a closer look and there was a patch of skin above/beside one of her eyes that had no fur on it and the skin looked dry and scaly. I was poking around and trying to figure out what was going on when I saw a FLEA near her eye! Closer inspection revealed a lot of flea poop in the fur on her back . I felt like she most likely scratched too vigorously, causing the severe skin irritation, so I put some neosporin (without pain reliever) on the affected skin and started laying out a plan of attack. Our household has a zero-tolerance policy regarding fleas! None of the other rabbits seemed to have any fleas (no fleas or poop seen in their white fur), but they're housed near each other so they all need to be treated anyway to guarantee they wouldn't just go from Nala to someone else. The only cat I checked was Chanel because the other four cats (oh yeah, we got a 5th cat last month!) are black and/or dark brown but she's gray and white so they're easy to spot... when I found a flea on her, there was no reason to check the other cats. Both species had fleas so I needed a 2-pronged attack. Thankfully, we have NO carpets - only hard flooring - which makes it much easier to eradicate the infestation. Getting fleas AND eggs/larval stages out of carpet is hell incarnate. We rushed out to Walmart at like 10 pm in search of flea stuff, but they didn't have the generic versions at the first one we went to so I drug my husband to a second Walmart in hopes of getting Nala some relief. Thankfully, the second one had the generic versions of both Frontline and Advantage II for cats, though it still set us back a whopping $75! Ugh. Got a 6-pack of generic Frontline for the 5 kitties (because it's a good bit cheaper than Advantage) and a 4-pack of generic Advantage for bunnies (because fipronil, the main ingredient in Frontline, is often fatal to rabbits and should NEVER be used on them). They even had a "large cat" version of the Advantage that has twice as much per tube, allowing me to use a syringe to measure out doses and get two rabbits with one tube and save the other two tubes in case I need to re-treat. I have no idea how she got the fleas. Ruby (new kitty) had come home from the shelter maybe a week prior to finding the fleas but shelters give flea treatments to their animals and I had never seen her scratching, so I doubt they came from her. My two primary suspects are a) maybe Nala got them from another animal who was stored near her at the vet or b) we get feral cats, possums and raccoons in our yard; perhaps husband and I picked up a flea or two while tromping across the lawn and unwittingly brought them indoors. Nala seemed to have the worst infestation, though, so probably some rude person brought a flea-ridden animal in for vet work. Anyway, within 24-48 hours, her eye area was looking MUCH better and there was ZERO flea poop in her fur. She looked a lot brighter and happier in the eyes. The hunch I had about her still-reduced appetite upon finding the fleas was right, too - once her fleas were gone, she started getting excited about food again. She has been 100% back to normal ever since and absolutely destroys her pellets the second I offer them. All four rabbits have been slower to eat the orchard grass than they were 3rd cut timothy, but they do eat it when they get hungry enough and hopefully they'll get more used to it as time goes on.
