    Gosling is much better. Yesterday, she had her first checkup after the surgery and everything is fine, there is no pus in her mouth. We still have to wait to know if the surgery was a success, so keep your fingers crossed.

    Carrot is also better. Her eye is not perfect yet but her cornea was damaged and is still undergoing treatment. She has a good appetetite and is quite active.

    Pachino had an x-ray. Her teeth need trimming and she will be also spayed during the surgery.

    Zuzia's kidneys stopped working so she had to come back to Toruń (she was in a foster home in Bydgoszcz). After she was given meds, kidneys started working again.



    There are also bad news concerning Podgrzybek. He had pulmonary edema and was treated with furosemidum. An X-ray revealed that his lungs are smaller and his heart is enlarged. This means that he will have to take medicines for the rest of his life

    :pray: Sending good thoughts to all the buns not feeling well.

    I'm going to be sponsoring Pachinko! I'll be sending money for her every month, to help with food, care, and treatment. :) I'm very excited for Felix and Clementine to have a long-distance 'foster sister'!

    pani, thank you very much for sponsoring Pachino! :)

    We have two new residents in the Sanctuary:

    Hyssop - a young male. He was said to be aggressive, unsociable and badly behaved (because was peeing everywhere). Well, we haven't seen any symptoms of aggressiveness. Because he didn't want to be a toy, we was given up. It turns out that Hyssop is healthy but neglected.

    Fir - a female that was found in Poznań. She is in bad condition. Her uterus is enlarged, there is an infection near her labia and urethra, she has papillomas near anus, her teeth need trimming and there are pathological changes in her dewlap. We are waiting for blood test results. If eveything is fine, she will undergo a surgery.

    [​IMG]


    Lebiodka underwent a serious surgery yesterday. The mucous membrane had to be removed from her nose (it was neccessary due to complications after myxomatosis). She stopped breathing during the procedure but resuscitation was successful. Please, keep your fingers crossed for her recovery. Lebiodka a rabbit that was confiscated with Marjoram and other rabbits during an intervention. All of them had myxomatosis. Some of the rabbits are healthy - Melisa and Marjoram are in their new homes, other rabbits needed more time to recover (Kminka/Caraway and Tymianek/Thyme) and some of them (Lebiodka, Maggie and Lubczyk/Lovage) still require treatment. The pus was accumulating in the nose due to myxomatosis (and necrosis caused by it) createn a perfect environment for bacteria.

    There is pus on the left side of Gosling's mouth. We will also use manuka honey (thank you Vanessa!) to strengthen the treatment. Gosling is in good mood and she put on weight - she is a 1,05 kg bunny now :)

    You are too cool Charlie! I've been sending care packages to the Rescue and was just looking today on what I could send for Pachinko! We must be psychically linked! I'm going to look into what Oxbow Vitamins and suppliments would be good for her and some of the other bunnies to send and help them!

    You've got a great heart! :)

    Give Felix and Clemmy some nose rubs and bunny kisses from me!! :)

    Aw, hooray! Pachino is such a cutie. It's too bad Australia is so far away or I'd want to foster her!

    Wow, Hyssop sounds like my husband, pee's every where he goes! HE HE HE... actually, he sounds like he just needed to get fixed and he would have been ok. (Hyssop, not my husband...) Sounds like another case of people getting rabbits who have not a clue about them and their behavior and once again, if they don't act like an Easter Bunny (like my Lop Lady) they just want to get rid of them. It's sad.

    I will be sending positive thoughts to FIR and hopefully she will be ok with some attention and loving care.

    Myxomatosis is a horrible, horrible afflection for rabbits. I hope they can eradicate it like Polo. I'm glad it does not exist here for Domestic, and is only affecting wild rabbits on the West Coast, and even then I'm not happy it's bothering wild rabbits. I think no rabbits should suffer from that. it's brutal. I hope all the rabbits with it recover and can lead a normal life.

    Anything I can send over to help is no problem! Just send me a laundry list! :)

    Gosling in the pic with Weronika actually looks bigger!!! She also doesn't look as frail as before in February.. It is my imagination??? Can it be??? Her fur looks better and I'm sure I must need new glasses, but it looks like she has less bald spots also.. like her fur is slowly starting to grow back!!

    and once again Charlie your a sweetie to help Pachinko out! I'm sure she is going to appreciate it!!!:angelandbunny:

    I am amazed at the work you do and even more so now as I have a bunny with an abscess and it is exhausting so I have nothing but admiration for all of you. I also understand Gosling's problem so much more and she is such a fighter as it is so stressful for them with all the jabs and treatment so she's a very spunky little lady. Hyslop is so cute, it's awful when they blame the bunny and all he wants is to live with someone who understands him.


    I was reading up on myxi when I had mine vaccinated and it is truly a terrible way for them to go and I wish there was some way to control numbers or eradicate it without the cruel way they kill these rabbits.

    Love reading about all the rabbits on here who get a second chance and those who don't make it at least get to feel the touch of someone who loves and cares for them before they leave us. You are all heroes :thumbup:

    When it comes to myxomatosis, most breeders won't vaccinate their rabbits because they want to pay for it. In this case, we could confiscate the rabbits because of the myxomatosis and in a way it saved their lives but it's unfortunate that some of these rabbits still have to fight with issues (like various bacteria) caused by this disease.

    It's time for an update.

    We lost Pietrynka last week. She had a uterine stump abscess and although she survived the surgery, she didn't recover. Also Replay died suddenly and we are not sure what happened. The post mortem examnatiom revealed some bleading in his intestines but we are not sure what caused it. It could have been some sort of bacteria.

    We also have 4 new rabbits in the Sanctuary!

    Piętaszek (Friday - from Robinson Crusoe) is a young and healthy male.


    [​IMG]


    Moomin - an overweigh bt healthy female. She came to us from Warsaw. We will put her on a proper diet and after spaying, she will be available for adoption.


    [​IMG]


    Thumbelina is pregnant and the pregnancy is advanced...


    [​IMG]


    Ash is a male with an abscess - the pus is in his mouth but also outside in a form of lump.


    [​IMG]



    Carrot had her inscisors extracted but she is recovering fast. The cornea in her eye is damaged again but she doesn't give up.


    [​IMG]


    And Gosling? She still has runny nose but she is in good mood


    [​IMG]


    Also, Keyen got adopted and will live in Poznań!


    [​IMG]



    Fir had a surgery last Thursday. She was spayed, our vet removed lipomas from her dewlap, polyps from the area of her annus and he also trimmed her teeth. She recovered after the surgery but there is still problem with her appetite. But she loves dill!

    :pray: Binky free, Pietrynka and Replay.

    The new additions are very cute! I hope Piętaszek and Moomin are adopted soon, that Thumbelina and her litter are happy and healthy, and that Ash, Carrot, and Gosling are feeling better soon. Glad to hear about Keyen's new home!

    I'm especially happy to read about Fir's successful surgery! She arrived in such terrible shape, so it's good to hear she's on the mend. I love that picture of her eating dill!

    I know there hasn't been any updates in English yet, but Gosling isn't doing well with her eye right now. They had to sew it shut over the past weekend because she had lost the blinking reflex and it was drying out. I pray that she will recover from that and her eye will be ok. I know they have her on drops and medicine so hopefully that will do the trick. Anyway, just wanted to put that out there...

    Ditto and congrats on Clemmie. Sorry I have not offered congrats earlier. I've lost a rabbit at the end of April :( and now Brooke is sick again with GI Statis. Just got back from dropping her off at the vet.

    I hope we can get an update on Gosling soon!!! Get better Gosling!

    I have some bad news...Gosling is gone. She was fighting with e.cuni and brain inflammation that was caused by it. She had been in coma for some days and she died on Friday while she was getting an IV.

    Oh no, Gosling. :( :( :(

    I saw that she wasn't doing so well on Facebook, but I had my hopes that she'd pull through, like she always seemed to. She fought so hard, and she was such a loving bun throughout her treatments. She was an ambassador for the rescue. She'll be missed dearly. :pray: Binky free, little darling Gosling.
