View Full Version : Hands up who's bunny has been helped by Jacks-Jane :)

12-01-2011, 04:10 PM
People of RU, this is a nice smiley thread :) Sort of linked to the Random Acts of Kindness thread in General Chat.

One of our members is feeling down and thinking she's not a good bunny mummy and I think she needs a bit of cheering up.

So, we all know lovely Jack's Jane gives excellent advice on a range of bunny health and behaviour issues (often putting vets right), so I thought we could have a thread where people say how they've been helped by her!

I don't have a bunny anymore (:cry:) so can't actually contribute to my own thread but I thought there might be others who have some "Jane helped my bunny" stories. Please share!


I know lots of members give lots of brilliant advice also, and also deserve lots and lots of credit, but I think Jane needs a bit of a morale boost at the moment so I thought I'd start a thread. Sorry if I offend anyone. I think all the advice and expertise given on this site is flippin brilliant.:love:

NB: Jane, sorry if you feel a bit funny about this sort of thing, it's just I wanted you to know how much RU appreciates you and how brilliant you are. If you feel offended, please let me know and I will get a mod to remove the thread

shes helped my out in alot of my threads and i havnt even been a member for that long :D

shes GREAAAATTTT!!!!! :lol:

12-01-2011, 04:14 PM
Here Here. :love:

Jane's not necessary helped my bunny, but she's certainly helped me and given advice.

I appreciate we dont all know Jane's situation, but i do agree, Jane rocks, 'nuff said.


12-01-2011, 04:18 PM
Me :)

She recently posted a thread (a few weeks ago) on the threat of coccidiosis which, after reading, I mentioned to my vet as we were very stumped on what was wrong with him. Charlie is now being treated for this and is actually putting on weight.

Thank you :)

So far, I haven't had any bunny health issues to contend with, thankfully, but if I did, she would be one of the people I would hope would reply to my post!!

I always read her health posts with interest, and possibly know a few things now that I didn't have a clue about before. It's a bit amazing how much she knows, because my brain only holds in the useless information I don't actually need :shock::roll::lol:

I always find Janes posts interesting and have learnt a lot from them, which has helped my buns, she sets a standard of caring for rabbits which is very high, I admire Jane's bunny caring skills and if ever my rabbit was ill or injured she would be one of the people who I would run to for advice.

Me, me! :wave: Not just regarding my own bunny, Spenser, but also my dear little rabbit nephew, Mr McFlurry.:love:

12-01-2011, 04:30 PM
me :D Jane is just great and always comes along with something helpful to say. I always hope Jane will post on my health related threads :oops:

12-01-2011, 04:34 PM
Jane gave me advice when I was worried about Bunski :wave:
She is full of wonderful knowledge.

12-01-2011, 04:36 PM
Dudley: In Dec 2009 Auntie Jane told my mummy to tell the vet man that is was my toof that was stopping me eating! The vet didnt think so but Auntie Jane was right!!! Jane saved my life :D I loves Auntie Jane :love::love: I woulds give her my last Fenugreek Crunchie :D

12-01-2011, 04:38 PM
:love: FANTASTIC LADY :love:

She has helped me many times, but especially when Bunicular developed head tilt, was rolling and very pootly. She suggested Stemitil, whoch our vets knew nothing about but happy to try and within a week Bunicula was much better.

Jane, without your advice I don't think Bunicula would still be here, in fact, I'm sure she wouldn't be :(

12-01-2011, 04:40 PM
Me :wave:
She was a pillar of support and great medical advise during my bun Mimis horrific head tilt :love:
When I spotted something amiss with Timmy eye she correctly suggested Uveitis.
When Mimi wasnt right the other day she correctly guessed it was gas and on following her (and others) advise I managed to get Mimi better :D

Quite offen I want her advise before a vet visit so I know whether my vets doing what he should be :lol: Im a complete bossy nightmare to my vet as a result :oops::lol:

Thanks for everything Jane :wave:

12-01-2011, 04:49 PM
Jane is an amazing person! She has given everyone one so much advice..:love:
Your lovely Jane!

12-01-2011, 04:53 PM
Mineeeee. Chloe when I first joined she had stasis and Jane helped

Jane also helped me and was very supportive when I had my op :love:

12-01-2011, 04:59 PM
I can't think of any specific time, cos my memory's appalling but I know just her advice on here form other threads has helped me with all of mine a huge amount.

12-01-2011, 05:00 PM

I really only pass on information gained from looking after my Rabbits. It's lovely to be appreciated, but I am not a qualified Vet, never could be !! A Bunny Savvy Vet is always the best option for a poorly Bunny.

Thank you for this thread, I just wish I could do more for Rabbit Welfare in general. Compared to all the Rescues on here my contribution is minimal.

Thank you again folks :)

12-01-2011, 05:03 PM
Me :wave:

I was beside myself with worry when Pansy had a post-spay hernia as I'd never come across this before. Jane put my mind at rest when she said she had been through this with one of her buns and it all turned out fine. :D It was just a few words of reassurance that made all the difference. I really appreciated it.

12-01-2011, 05:14 PM
In all honesty even if Jane hasn't advised anyone directly the information made available through sharing experience/knowledge has probably helped a lot of owners and bunnies alike :love:

12-01-2011, 05:30 PM
Me :wave:

Jane was i believe the first person to reply to my thread when Stew starting dragging her legs suddenly one night.She and many others stuck with the thread and Stew all the way to the end.Thank you Jane xxx

12-01-2011, 05:37 PM

Jane gave me some good ideas for trying to get Benji eating hay:) She also always has a kind word to say on my "woe is me" threads, despite the fact that they're so minimal compared to other people's problems.. I really appreciate it:)

We love you Jane!

12-01-2011, 05:42 PM
meeeee - in the beginning when eric was very poorly, last year when i thought i was going to lose esme and yesterday with myself!! (hehehehe - jane told me to go to the docs today so although i tried to put it off, in the back of my mind i was thinking, 'well, if jane recommended i take a bun to the vet, i darn well do it' so i made the appointment:lol:

12-01-2011, 05:43 PM
Jane has helped me a million times, casper and i are very very greatful for all her advice and help, she has helped me to feel better about things and put my mind at rest and is always there to give excellent advice on medication and conditions. I have also learnt so much about buns from jane, i dont really know how she keeps everything in her head, i certainly have not got all that room for all that knowledge!

your buns are so lucky to have such a experianced and caring mummy :love:

12-01-2011, 05:53 PM
Yes most recently with Oxo. I have picked Jane's brains on a number of occassions I might add and I recommend it :)

12-01-2011, 06:03 PM
Yes, she helped me today. Advised me to take bugs to the vet because he was scratching. Turns out he wasn't a very well bun at all, so Thank you Jane you are awesome:p. Bugs said thank you aswell and sends his cuddles

12-01-2011, 06:33 PM
wow- Jane is amazing...Ive been helped by her so much with the info she has put on RU, the informative threads & general advice is always something I know I dont need to doubt! I often will search for threads on certain issues I want to learn about and hope that Jane & few other really knowledgeable people have hopefully posted some info.
I feel extremely fortunate to know that RU has experienced advisors & Jane is certainly at the forefront!

So.......... Thank you Jane for you contribution & for taking the time to share your knowledge with us...it is humbling how much you know & so much appreciated that you take the time to help so many of us...thankyou - youre a gem!:wave::love::love::love:

12-01-2011, 06:33 PM

I've picked Jane's brains in the past, but have also picked up a lot just from reading threads that she's given advice on, so would like to add my thanks. :love:

12-01-2011, 07:21 PM
Thank you very much everyone xx

12-01-2011, 07:24 PM
Ooo sorry to be late, but me!! I have randomly asked Jane questions on a couple of my buns and she's always given me a lot of information and really helpful advice. I've always been very very grateful :love::love:

12-01-2011, 08:49 PM
Me - our bunnies have been helped A LOT!

I disagree. You help bunnies. Just in a different way :D

You contributed a great deal on my thread when Twinkle was in stasis last year, :love:

12-01-2011, 09:17 PM
Me :wave: Jane's given great advice on several occasions for both my bunnies. She's a star :D

12-01-2011, 09:21 PM
Jane saved Isabel's life on Monday, telling me that something prescribed would have killed her.

Isabel is now getting better thanks to Jane's abx knowledge :love:

When Autumn had myxi, Jane was always a pillar of support, replying daily to my updates.

And many other bunnies we have had here!

12-01-2011, 09:21 PM
Me - she helped me a lot when Marge had her spay operation. Marge and I thank you very much Jane. :wave:

12-01-2011, 11:58 PM
me, when my two got myxomatosis a few years ago :-) and probably since then too but thats the 1 that sticks out

Hi Jane
Your contribution is not minimal, there are LOTS of rabbits you've helped, not just those who have asked for advice, but those owners who have read and absorbed knowledge, awareness and acted when needed.
I for one have learnt loads from reading your posts and am very grateful for your input (and others) on RU. :wave:

13-01-2011, 03:26 AM
When Pie first had GI Stasis I posted a frantic thread about what to do - it was 9pm on a saturday night. I remember Jane (and others) giving advice. Also when Pie stopped eating and drinking after her spay and was put on fluids at the vets for 3 days.

Jane you are far too modest. What would RU do without I don't know! :love: :love:

13-01-2011, 04:57 AM
Jane - Thank you for all your help with my dental buns and advice about so many topics I've needed help with. Your a bunny mummy angel xxx

13-01-2011, 07:12 AM
She insisted that Molly needed to go the emergency vets one night when she was not eating. I was scared to make the decision to take her, but did so because of the advice I recieved. She pulled through and was back to normal the next day.

Thank you :D

13-01-2011, 07:53 AM
Where to start....
When Blue had funny wee and had to have his bladder flushed for sludge....Ollies stasis (sadly we lost her as it was a blockage)....Bea mysterious elbow injury.
Then more recently....Blue and Marnies EC scare....Marnies eating of the washing liquid :oops: (It was Janes suggestion for sub cut fluids and charcoal...which I'm convinced is what brought Moomoo through) and then just before christmas Blues stasis. I really don't know what I'd do without you!!!

13-01-2011, 07:56 AM
Yip, my hand is up, she helped me a lot with Kermit when i was a novice bunny owner, and she has helped me now with my Herbie & Inca. So thanks a million Jane xx

I did/do get loads of help from a lot of others on here, so thanks to them too :)

13-01-2011, 08:03 AM
Janes advice has helped several of my bunnies since I've been a member of RU.....thanks Jane :wave:

13-01-2011, 08:27 AM
I am rather :oops: but thank you all for your very kind posts

If I have helped just one Bun then I guess my time on earth has not been 100% useless xx

13-01-2011, 08:30 AM

Of course it hasn't you silly thing. Although I wish there was something you could do about Marnies naughtyness. If I have to go and chase her away from whatever it is she shouldn't be doing but is then I think I'll scream!

13-01-2011, 08:44 AM
:wave:Janes specialist Rex knowledge has been a bonus for Gilbert, both with prevention & cures.
I think I've soaked up heaps of bunny health info from her many excellent posts for other peoples buns that has alerted & allowed me manage problems that have occurred with confidence.
Thanks to Jane I've been able to lead emergency vets in the right direction with my buns :oops:
So from NZ - a really big YAY for Jane & her contribution to the RU buns.
PS Photos of her gorgeous buns always put me in a good mood :D

13-01-2011, 09:38 AM
Although I have my own medical knowledge, Jane has been a fantastic sounding board for me to bounce ideas off :thumb:, especially considering how rusty my knowledge has become over the years and obviously not rabbit related :oops: On several occasions she has given me the confidence to pursue a particular course of action/treatment based on her experience which has had a very positive and healing effect on my very special bunny. I have turned to Jane for advice and reassurance many times and she has given me great peace of mind. :D x

13-01-2011, 04:44 PM
:wave: almost missed this 7 pages back :lol:

yup my buns have certainly been helped by Jane, when i have a panic i hope shes online and of course ill never forget her being there for me in pm the morning i had to let my Angel Pearl go.

cheers Jane your a star missus :love: :love:

13-01-2011, 06:30 PM
I guess that lots of us have posted in a panic asking for help and then when we check a few hours later and see that Jane has replied it is like "phew - there'll be some good, sensible and knowledgeable advice for me". Three cheers for Jane :wave:

13-01-2011, 07:41 PM
Jane is a star and her advice is always spot on! She has helped me recently with my Alice (not only did she help me with the health problems but also with some piece of mind!)

Jane you're a true star and there should be more bunny owners like you! xxx
