View Full Version : Lymington Bunny Lara - Gone to her new lovely home up date post 90

Little Lara, one of the Burford bound pregnant buns that was due to travel to her rescue place today, is currently at the vets being monitored.

She gave birth this morning and sadly the 3 babies did not survive. Her husbun has made his way with Janice and the other male husbun onwards, but Lara needed urgent vet attention. It seems she has a retained baby and has been given drugs to encourage her to deliver. If she doesn't it'll have to be an emergency cesarian/spay. She needs vibes as she has gone through so much in the last three days.

The other mum has not traveled and will now be cared for by my little group of lovely helpers here at TRC. Hopefully she will deliver normally and can then be spayed/vacc'd and rehomed.

I haven't got a photo but all being well, we will post later with an update on her progress.

I only met her properly for the first time this morning and have already bonded with her. She so deserves to go on to a lovely new forever home.

She's a stunner Lara. She's a magpie lop - very softly coloured but with blue grey eyes. Very pretty and could only be a lady rabbit. Almost a blue eyed blonde.

That's okay

I've given them some names and they'll stay here with us in the garden.

Sunshine, Starlight and Sweetness.

They would have looked like their mum.

I pray she goes on to do well and doesnt' have to meet them again for many many years.

Ive just got back from Burford after dropping off the bunnies. We put them all in lovely pens there. One mum of 4 gorgeous babies was seen by the vet when I was there. She had a bite on her back, which was nasty and been there for some time. The vet cleaned it all out and she is now settled with her babies. Two single boys are exploring their drainpipes and trying to work out how to come out of the other end:D

Thanks to Janice for bringing them closer to me, which reduced the driving time.

Its heartbreaking that Lara lost her babies and is struggling herself. Im hoping that she recovers and gets the home she so deserves.

We have one more final bunny run to do on Monday and then they all will be in rescues and I can breathe a sigh of relief.

The Duchess
02-09-2010, 04:39 PM
Thanks Lorraine for the update.

Just been up to the vets to see how Lara is doing and she is okay but may be staying in overnight. She drank and ate some of her 'mix' while I was there. Nothing more to report at present.

Thanks Lorraine for doing the last part of the jouney, saved me getting lost and them arriving once they had closed for the day. My journey home was very quick with very little traffic on the road which was great.

Glad that they got their safely and now settling in.

There were 10 bunnies due today to go to the Bursford Blue Cross Centre, I took all but 2 including her husbun to Oxford this morning to meet Raine who took them on the final stretch of the journey there.

I handed over Lara to Helen on my way this morning so that she could get her to the vet as I we were working on a very short time span to get the buns into the centre today as they were closed this afternoon for training. The last time I heard was that Lara was eating but remained at the vets and was likely to stay there overnight.

The other female who was also living with an unneutered male has remained with me as we were concerned that her pregnancy may be more advanced than had been intitially indicated when they were initially handed over.

I am sure Helen will update us once she has been to the vets tomorrow.

Have just been to the vets and have had an update on Lara. She hasn't produced any more kits and both vets at the practice feel she has got one retained so they are just about to do an emergency spay to ensure that she doesn't become very ill indeed.

She seems bright enough in herself apart from that and is eating, drinking, weeing and pooing so hopefully she will do well.

Will post more later.

Just got back in from work and collecting Lara. She came through the op fine and I am so pleased that we got her to the vets when we did as she did have a retained kit in her that had partially rotted and Ivan said he felt that she could have been there for quite a while, possibly even before we moved her.

She is bright enough (just as she might be post normal spay) and has eaten recovery by syringe so that's not to shabby.

Would you like to meet her?

Hi Lara (we have an echo LOL)

She is amazing! She's nommed all her grub and loves her hay. She has some baby toys too and has already mastered how to chuck a dumbell rattle across the hutch. She has had visitors today and comes forward all the time to see what's what.

It is now noticeable how painfully thin she is without her pregnancy. She has no muscle in her back legs and her ribs stick out quite a way. I think she should be about a 3kgs bunny but she isn't by any means.

The good news is that we've already had interest in her too so this may be a lovely happy new start for Lara.

Her wound is amazingly small and has healed so well, a visit to the vets in a few weeks when she's put on weight and then hopefully she can have her course of vaccinations.

All good I think.

Latest news - Lara went to her new home with Marble for a husbun yesterday evening.

http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii277/helenmhalliday/Lara/8thSept2010006.jpg

http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii277/helenmhalliday/Lara/8thSept2010007.jpg

I had tried to bond her up previously but Marble was a bit too amorous and I had to stop the session. A few weeks on and we tried again and after a week of me spending the night on the sofa, just in case, they finally decided to live together. Lara scans a lot and I think her eyesight coupled with Marble's energy has played a part in the time it's taken for me to be sure they are okay - we've had a few little scuffles during the week, but this seems to have settled a lot in the last two days.

The bond will need a little more work from mummy Becky to ensure they continue to stay in love (Lara is still getting a bit of humping now and again from Marble) because I think Lara spooks quite easily and then sets Marble off, but I actually think we are past this - with both realising how nice it is to have some comfort and company from their friend.

I feel sure that Becky will post some photos of this most beautiful couple in due course. Lara and Marble will be living as house rabbits - she's certainly landed on her paws when you think where she came from.

Becky, thank you for giving Lara exactly the kind of home she so deserves - one that is calm and full of love.
