Rudy has only been with me six weeks but was settling in fine until the last few days when he seemed a bit miserable.
Yesterday he stopped eating hard food (normally a really greedy bunny) and the vet confirmed he needed some
molar spurs burring. He was eating Science Recovery and a bit of hay and didn't seem so bad yesterday evening
but hasn't eaten very much at all today. I took him back to the vets today and his 'lungs are a little rattly'.
His temperature was fine and he seemed reasonably active and not dehydrated. He did however have a wet nose
which was of concern. He may or may not be having the dental tomorrow depending on whether they think he's okay to
have the general anaesthetic, otherwise it will be antibiotics and syringe feeding!

Any vibes you can spare would be greatly appreciated!

Here's a picture of him a few weeks ago settling in:

Well Rudy's been syringe fed over night, given medications etc and he's quite lively this morning (even described as cheeky!). He's eaten some grass on his own!! It's still a bit too risky to do a GA as he has some pasturella symptoms but they haven't got worse.... So they are keeping an eye on him with a view to do the dental when it's deemed safe. There's a really obvious molar spur now and a red patch in his cheek.

Poor little baby. At least he's sounding a bit happier.

Glad he's making progress - fingers crossed he's back to full health soon.

Just a quick update.

It's been decided it's the best option to go for the dental at this stage so he's being done this afternoon. I may be picking him up this evening depending on his progress (fingers crossed).

Any vibes coming his way would be appreciated!

He's back home. :D:D

He still needs close monitoring and care but he's back!

He's got a very sore tongue bless him so no doubt it will be a few days before he's happy again.

24-07-2008, 06:22 PM
oooo so glad he's home and okay! He is soooo gorgeous:love::love:

I showed Tinkers his picture and she sent her new husbun this...

:love:Oh how lovely! Thank you. Perhaps I should show him a picture of Tinks to help speed his recovery!

(He's just gone and sat on his 'potty' how exciting is that?? I guess you have to 'live rabbits' to find such things exciting :oops::oops:)

24-07-2008, 06:33 PM

He's hardly eaten anything during the night, only a few small pieces of bread. He's not drunk any water, which I'm now working on.

Vibes would be very much appreciated.

He's back at the vets now getting syringe fed and on a drip to make sure he is hydrated!

Eating vibes needed!!

Cooler weather vibes wouldn't go amiss either!!

:D:D He's back home now and eating much better. :D:D

Phew! That was a bit of a scare. He's just tucking into some mashed pellets now and I'm off out to find some choice raspberry leaves for him.

26-07-2008, 10:46 AM
Phew, glad he's doing better.

26-07-2008, 12:32 PM

Here's the little treasure today eating some spring greens.
He actually snatched the leaf out of my hand, I think I'm seeing the old Rudy back again!!

Tell Tinks he's not blurry in real life, it's just my photography 'skills'. :lol::lol:

(I have to give him some baytril by syringe tomorrow, oh what joy, I haven't told him yet, he's just asked me for a nose rub so I don't want to spoil his good mood!!)
