    Amen Chris. I'm there with you!!!!!
    Go to the blog in Polish. There is daily updates on her!
    You can translate the page with Bling, Google, etc..

    The photos are just great! She is a fighter and I guess for the most
    part for those of us on the list, we always cheer for the underdog!
    I can't tell you how hard I prayed for her when I saw the pictures
    of her in the little blue basket with the other bunny buddy when she
    had the runny nose!

    BTW, unless I read it wrong, and I could because I ain't all that great
    in Polish. Gosling is going to be going on trip to Warsaw Thursday with
    the Rescue! What a star she is!!!!

    Vanessa do you have the link to the blog in Polish. I also follow them on facebook so see some photos on there and updates. She is such a little star, she goes on against all the odds and always looks like such a happy little bunny. Aren´t those that have the most obstacles the ones to really shine. Go my little girl, I am rooting for you always.

    I sure do!

    http://www.azyl.vot.pl/

    They post every day what is going on. After I saw that she was sick again, I was so worried about her and started going to the blog to check up on her. I follow them also on Facebook.

    I agree with you on Gosling. She does always look like a happy bunny no matter how sick she is and you are right concerning the one's that have the most obstacles!

    I'm looking at some Critical Care stuff online that I'm thinking about picking up and sending to them as donations for her. It can't hurt. :big kiss:

    I can't wait to see the photos of her in Warsaw this week! They should be a blast! :toast:

    Hello,
    I am very sorry for the lack of updates. I usually translate for you our Polish blog here :) But there are more photos on the blog so it is always worth visiting :)

    Vanessa is right - Gosling is going to Warsaw on Thursday. Our blog was nominated in the blog of the year competition and there is a chance it will be awarded! :) Ola has to take Gosling with her because, as you already know, no one else can feed Gosling :)
    Gosling has bad and good days. Ola thinks that Gosling's eye looked worse yesterday.

    We also have two new buns - Oregano and Dandelion.
    Dandelion probably has pasteurellosis and we are waiting for his tests results.

    [​IMG]


    Oragano's teeeth need trimming but other than that, he is a healthy male.

    I don't know what happened to the pictures and why they are so small.

    I also forgot to mention that Kurt had another surgery last week. It was more serious than the previous one as the abscess (this time encysted) was situated close to the artery. But Kurt is our another fighter and she is slowly recovering.

    Any rabbit that is that interested in the food in that bag is doing good in my book! :)
    Whenever they loose interest in all or anything is the problem! What a curious little girl
    Gosling is!!!! :)

    I hope you all have a good time in Warsaw and don't let Gosling turn into too much of a diva there! ;)

    We didn't win the prize for the blog of the year 2013 but we won something else. More people heard about the Rescue and this is very important for our rabbits. The girls that attended the event also had a chance to learn new things about blogging. Their heads are full of new ideas and next year, they will fight for the award again

    And what's more, Gosling has new fans! People just adored her

    In the picture below, you can see Marta, Kasia, Ola and Magda

    What a shame but you all did so well and am so pleased to hear Gosling was the star of the show. Who could you not fall in love with her, she is amazing. Congratulations to all and keep doing all you do, you are all stars :)

    I have contacted and finally spoke with Dr. Gary Schwartz of Wheaton, Maryland today about Gosling and her infections. I will email you what he said about her meds that she was on.

    He said some of the best course to go that is not evasive is to

    1) pack her absesses with Manuka honey because he said that will kill the infection without bothering or compromising her immune system. He has done that before with good success.

    2) He said another way to go is to use sterile gauze and pack it with an antibotic and change them every few days. He also noted that this is another less evasive way instead of scraping her absesses every day. He said you would have to scape the absess to the bone before inserting the sterile gauze. It sounds like this has just been done yesterday..

    3) Third option is to use human bone cement and make it into beads that is inpregnated with antibiotics called amikacin, and that although this particular antibiotic can cause kidney problems in rabbits if administered via injection, the slow release of the antibiotic from beads does not result in kidney damage or any other antibiotic.
    The veterinarian combines a bone cement with an antibiotic, fashioning the mixture into beads. The beads are implanted at the site of the abscess and remain inside the rabbit as the antibiotic is slowly released over a period of months or perhaps even years.

    I told the vet that the local vet was looking to put her on TFX. He said that he had heard of it being used on rabbits but said in the future he would not recommend using cephalexin on her again or in the future. He said with her immune system being so compromised it would not be good and he would not recommend it at all. He said results are kinda iffy with seriously ill rabbits. He said there are some other options and I have his email if we need to get in contact with him for follow up or more information. This is his animal hospitals web site: http://www.wheatonanimalhospital.info/

    I hope this helps and let me know what your vet says about this treatment for Gosling. I'm also talking to him
    about Carrot as well. More on that in a few..

    Kurt is gone. She had acute kidney failure and nothing could be done to save her.

    There are no changes to Gosling's condition. She was given an ultrasound of the eyeball today and fortunately there is no pus. She will probably undergo another surgery as there may be a new way to help her - our vet will use a mixture of human bone cement and an antibiotic and he will implant it in the form of beads in the place where Gosling's teeth used to be. Vanessa, thank You for this suggestion!

    Zuzia went to the vet today. She drinks too much water and has some behavioral issues. We are waiting for blood test results.

    Koko and Marjoram were adopted and they will hop to their new homes soon :)

    Wilczek (Little Wolf) hurt his hind leg in the cage. He should recover in couple of weeks but he is on painkillers now.

    I'm so sorry to hear that Wilczek hurt himself! ;( I hope he gets better soon and I'm so upset to hear about Kurt. I had a package for her! :(

    I hope Gosling can beat these infections and once clear of that, who knows! :) But at least she is happy and cheerful!
    And that is the main thing. We can overcome anything with a positive attitude.. oh like Plato said that I have quoted a million times:

    " we cannot cure the body with body; we cure the body with the mind, and if the mind is confused and upset, it cannot cure anything properly."

    Good luck over there and keep on kicking butt! You guys are doing such a great job over there!!!

    Gosling underwent another sugery yesterday. She doesn't want to eat but she needs time. A bactericidal substance (biopulp) mixed with metronidazol and then used in places where pus was accumulating (ie. places left after the extraction of molars and incisors, as well as external parts of drains) and covered it with human bone cement. Biopulp and human bone cement have bactericidal and osteoblastic properties.

    We lost Wilczek yesterday. The post mortem examination was inconclusive and we don't know what happened.

    Zuzia's blood test results are not good. There are problems with her kidneys. The levels of urea, creatinine and potassium are too high. The count of white blood cells is also increased. She was put on an antibiotic (Enrocin) and ipakitine. Her kidneys will be flushed with drips. This is the plan for now.

    Also, Koko and Gala got adopted :)

    We have four unusual residents in the Sanctuary. Four gerbils were given up as their owner was...allergic to them. We couldn't leave them like that so we took them in. They are waiting for a new, loving home.
