I don't know what's going on with my buns, but Bramble was taken poorly last night. She didn't want her tea and lying on her tummy like it hurt her. I took her temp and it was low, so warmed her up, gave her some meds and syringed her some food and water and she seemed to brighten up. I put her down and made her run around, which wasn't going too bad, took her temp again and it had dropped since I warmed her up. :(

I took her up st georges and asked for them to admit her, I am really flued up and too poorly to look after her. They said she didn't need admitting because although her temp was low, they couldn't find anything wrong with her, her lungs were clear, no bloat or impactation and her heart was good, but to be honest I had tried for an hour of so and she seemed quite flat with me. So they agreed to take over the care, good job as I have been really poorlyin the night and I've got to take Chocky to her vets for her operation today and that's about 70 miles away.

I am really worried, I don;t know if you remember but I had them from a rescue (her and Thistle) on the agreement I didn't neuter, but earlier in the year when they went for their myx, my vet said he could feel something and I had them neutered anyway and there was tomours, I am hoping it's nothing to do with that.

I am just waiting for the vet to call me back

well this is embarressing it's Thistle :oops::oops::oops:. I did say when I admitted her she looks a lot like her sister/mom (not sure how they're related), anyway they scanned her chip and it's Thistle (she had the same neutering problem as Bramble).

Anyway her tempreture is still low 36.5 and she's been on a heat pad, she has been eating by herself, but only had one poo, I did the right thing to admit her then, she's stopping in today for more treatment.

The buns look so alike they can only be distinguished by microchip- which has confirmed its Thistle.

Get well soon Thistle, and you too Tree-Sue:wave:

Thanks everyone,

Well, I said to Bryn you will have to deal with Thistle as I had to take Chocky over to her vets and then when I went to Nibbles she had an abscess come up so she had to go to the vets that does teeth without ga for that to be done, I have litteraly come back in. Anyway I rang up Bryn to see how Thistle was and he said she was just in an oxygen tent, I was omfg :shock: I didn't think she was that bad and he said she'd just had a ga and was coming round, he could of told me that bit first I nearly :censored: myself, thinking she was having oxygen to keep her alive. The vet had said that they could see some spurs on her back teeth and asked him if they should take them off, so he had said yes. I have just spoke to the vet and she's a bit wobberly and will be staying in tonight too.

Chocky didn't have her op, the vet thinks a low fat diet will reduce it and she has to go back in three months and Nibbles has had her abcsess done. I feel really rough, before I do anything else I need a sleep.

The rescue doesn't believe in spaying females, she believes it shortens their life., all boys are neutered, the lady that runs it is very old and as always done things that way, she's too old to change.

Ah right, I think I know who this is now, yes I spoke to her some time back as I offered to take and rehome 6 of her females and she wouldn;t let me in case I got them neutered, sad really.

Hope the bunny is OK by the way!

Thanks, well I am sure the chips are in the wrong way round because having the two next to each other, I swear it was Bramble that was ill even though her chip says Thistle :lol::lol::lol: the vet has cut some hair off the back of her head so I know which one to give meds to :oops::oops::lol::lol::lol:

Yep Theo sounds like the same lady, I only really foster Bramble and Thistle (although not told her one has been poorly :oops:), although I do pay all their vet bills and had them chipped in my name :oops::oops:, but I normally have the difficult or bitey bunnies from there, as she has enough trouble finding homes for the freindly bunnies, the problem ones don't get a look in. I wouldn't push the neuter thing with her as it may get her back up and then I wont be able to help the bunnies.

SOAD
27-09-2008, 11:42 AM
OOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKK the chips are the right way round and I might of given the wrong bunny meds last night :oops::oops:, I thought what was a natural short hair on the back of the head was where the vet had shaved, it's only in teh light of day I have noticed that Thistle does have a proper shaved bit. Thank God it's just zantac she's on and nothing injectable :oops::oops::oops:

I can't stress how much these two look alike :oops::oops:

SOAD

I remember not long after I got the buns, their colourings kept changing due to their moults, so I started to just go on their personalities to judge which was which. One evening I went to feed them and one came running forward and the other was in the corner in stasis, and I had no idea at first which it was because I couldn't really compare their personalities, with one being ill! God, that was stressful - I remember writing about it on here! I eventually decided which I thought it was and booked her in at the vets, but I still wasn't 100% certain! :oops: :shock:

You can temporary shave the fur on a small part of 1 of the bun for ID purpose, say the corner of the ear. The fur will grow back anyway
