    Tobias finally underwent a procedure that had been postponed for some time. His lower cheek teeth were removed on the left side and both dear ducts were cleared. We would like to believe that this is the end of his teeth adventures, cheek teeth were in an appaling state and nearly pierced his jawbone, but we will see.

    Lucjan is about one year old and was brough to Azyl by his owner. He is a bit underweight so we've put him on Rodicare, but aprat from this, there is nothing else to be concerned about.

    Fajter (Fighter) came in in 2014. He had deep wounds on his body (you can see the picture here: https://www.azyl.vot.pl/2019/02/sroda-20-02-2019-r/ it is quite graphic, so I don't want to post it here). He was a young lad with not so good history but he didn't have to wait for his forever home as Magda, one of the Founders, took him in. Yestreday, he passed away.

    Nairobi and Amy went to their forever homes. Good luck, girls! :)

    But nature loves balance, so we have two new rabbits at the Rescue. We will introduce them soon.

    Tobias is fine, Marshall and Pikard have surgeries scheduled for today, Umba started eating and there are some droppings :)

    Binky free, little Fajter! I was brave enough to look at the graphic picture... I can't believe he even survived all that! How horrible, what he must've gone through to end up in that state *cry*. I really hope that after five years of love and pampering, he no longer remembered the pain and suffering he went through before finding his way to Azyl.

    On Friday, 10 new rabbits came in. They were confiscated during an interention conducted by the Emergency for Animals Foundation and brought to us. There are 4 girls (about 3 months old) and six adult rabbits.

    3 of them have problems with their eyes. In the case of Karlik and Gacek these problems are serious, Kropiatka's eyes tend to water. Karlik deals with cornea opacification and purulent secretion from both eyes and Gacek's right eye waters/oozes. Beside that, there is a standard issue - malnutrition. The little rabbits have enlarged bellies and protruded spines.

    All of them will be examined tomorrow.

    Another three rabbits came to us from Opole. They are taking them to our vet tomorrow.

    And there is also Pumba. Brough by his owner to the vet's to be euthanised. The vet didn't want to do it and Pumba was brough to us last Sunday night. He is extremely obsese. He is one of the worst cases or even the worse case of an obese rabbit that we've dealt with (and believe us, we have seen a lot). He is filled with adopose tissue and lipomas. Feeding him is a traumatic situation for the poor guy (and we have to force feed him). We also found blood in his urine. Calcium levels in his blood are too high.

    Ultrasonography confirmed that there are stones in his bladder. We are trying treatment, but it it doesn't work, his bladder will have to be flushed.

    There is also a bunch of photos from our pen, you can see them here: https://www.azyl.vot.pl/2019/03/sobota-2-03-2019-r/

    So I followed that link to check out the additional photos... OMG, the super-cuteness is overwhelming! There are some really iconic and adorable pics there... one of my favorites is the one that caught a rabbit mid-lick, grooming another rabbit's ear :D. The rabbits are making such great faces in so many of the pictures, lol.

    On Saturday, 8 new rabbits came to Azyl. 7 of them were confiscated from a mini zoo and one was grabbed somwhere on the way (we are not sure, we just agreed to give him shelter as well).

    [​IMG]IMG_9926

    And there are seven bigger rabbits (some of the pictures are quite graphic, so here is the link: https://www.azyl.vot.pl/2019/03/sobota-16-03-2019-r/)

    Their health situation is difficult. We have pododermatitis, scabies and overgrown claws here + at least three patients that are sneezing quite badly (Ellio, Swings and Kasztanka).

    Ellio had fever, purulent rhinitis and finds it difficult to breather so he is undergoing treatment. Swings is malnourished and Kasztanka's eyeball was displaced from the eye socket. After the intervention, her eyelids were sewn together, but unfortunately, the eye will probably have to be removed.
