Hawkbit, one of the blackpool buns is now at the vets having surgery.

I rushed him there as soon as I had permission to get him treatment as he was obviously in a lot of pain and cannot eat at all.

His molars are in a terrible state and he has pus coming out of his gums and a large abscess on the back of his tongue.

He is very high risk as he is in very poor condition, he is so thin as he hasn't been able to eat for sometime. Plus he was only castrated on Thursday.

Please wish him luck, he needs all the help he can get

Janex

I know, I don't know how they could have missed it :?

His inscisors were over grown so they were clipped during castration but they obviously didn't check the back.

He was in so much pain, he was sat hunched up with his coat fluffed up and his eyes half shut. He was wet through with urine cos he was just sitting in the same place. It broke my heart, I'm so glad he is now getting the treatment he needs.

Poor Hawkbit :( Sending vibes for a speedy recovery and huge hugs for Liz who has ended up with rather more than she bargained for. :(

The vet neutered all nine buns that day on top of their normal workload and sadly his teeth got missed although he was sent with a dental inspection required note. :(

I feel that we have let him down (despite good intentions) and now Liz is picking up the pieces. There has been so much hope and goodwill surrounding these bunnies from everyone involved that it is heartbreaking for this to have happened. :(

Don't worry about me, It can't be helped its just one of those things. ( I just wish I had 2 hands working, hospital says I have to have an MRI scan :roll: )

All the other bunnies seemed happy and healthy and I'm glad I was able to do my part to help them get a forever home.

My only concern now is that Hawkbit can be successfully treated so he is no longer in pain. I thought I would of heard something by now as they were going to operate straight away, but I know Jen will do her very best for him.

You most certainly haven't let anyBun down :)
Mistakes happen and if the Vet was very busy then the request for a Dental check may have accidently gotten overlooked. I am sure the Vet would be upset were he/she to know that Hawkbits teeth were missed.
No-one's perfect and mistakes happen

Hawkbit is a real fighter, he has made it through the GA and is already trying to eat on his own, he is such a star :love:

Jen removed as many molar spurs as she could and drained the abscess on his tongue and removed as much pus as possible from his mouth. The grass he had tried to eat earlier had to be removed from around his tongue as it had got caught up.

He may need a further dental as his tongue was so swollen they could not see everything clearly.:(

He is back for a check up on Friday morning.

I must admit I am very worried today, he has no life in his eyes :( I think the stress of the journey and GAs are taking there toll. He has had a couple of mls of very watery food. He is finding it so hard to swallow. I will keep trying regularly through the day

We all know you are doing everything you can. Despite everything he is probably having the best few days of his life with your care and attention.

Try not to worry - theres only so much you can do - he needs to do the rest

Liz can you give sub-cut fluids? I have seen Buns turned right around with either sub-cut or IV Hartmanns
The poor wee lad has really been through so much :cry:

I have never done it before, but could ask. He is drinking plenty and there are probiotics in the water

Sometimes the electrolytes in the Hartmanns are what makes the difference I think :?
I know when I nearly lost Bobbie ( Pneumonia/Enteritis ) fluid therapy really did make a huge difference.

I have had a a long chat to Jen and she feels we are doing all we can for him. Though I am going to give him zantac to prevent stomach ulcers.

Unfortunately Jen has said if there is no improvemnt in 24 hours we need to PTS :cry: I know this not a decision she would make lightly as she has dutch bunnies of her own

I've brought back in now as was worried he was getting a bit hot.

He is still drinking for himself and I have tried dandelion, lettuce, grated carrot, shredded greens, broccoli and porridge plus 2 different pellets, but he just isn't interested :(

Some syringe food is going in but the rest just drips from his chin. I think he is having so much trouble swallowing that he can't be bothered to try anymore

Is he just on Metacam for analgesia ?

Could he be tube fed ( naso-gastric tube ) at the Vets til his abscessated tongue heals ?

I am so very sorry Liz :cry: You did all you could for him and probably the most important thing was the love and care you gave him during his final days.

I suspect the infection in his mouth overwhelmed his already frail body
