Just replied to your PM Angie :)

Tons of vibes for Flops.
I'd try to encourage her to up her fluid intake as much as possible today.
Sub-cuts would be good if you can give them.

How is she Ange? :)

i ve just come back in from checking her and she was soaked again :(

eating but not as much as usual .

no more blood .

but she has now had two full days of baytril ...i would have thought there should be more improvement by now if it was just a urine infection .... she usualy picks up quicker than this ....

i feel sick thinking it could be cancer in her kidneys .... my poor baby ...

am going to ring the vets tomorrow for advice ... i may take her in but will see what they say ... :(

i was planning to bond her this weekend with bun jovi .... now i dont even know if shes going to be ok .. :(

28-12-2008, 08:58 PM
Awww hoping she will be ok.
Sending lots of hugs and vibes.

Well ...i have some answers ...but Flops is definatly a poorly bunny ...:(

vet tested her urine ...and she has an infection somewhere in her water works ..(bladder or kidneys ) poor flops cried when vet was expressing the urine ..:(:(..
there is also still blood in her urine..

when the vet felt her kidneys ..one seems slightly enlarged ... this could be a tumour :( :(

we talked about blood tests etc but both myself and the vet decided that it would be pointless ...as ...if it is a tumour there is nothing to cure it anyway ... so we are treating the infection for now ..

She is now on septrin and metacam and i have to contact the vets in 2 days if no improvement ...we will them try something else ...

if that doesnt work then i will be faced with making a decision .. :( :(

Flops is now tucked up inside on 2 layers of vetbed ... she has had her meds for tonight and has nibbled some food .. i will leave her be for now .

thank you everyone for your comments ..


29-12-2008, 08:37 PM
