Dear old Nomad is now in chronic renal failure. He is doing OK within himself at the moment, but he is losing lots of weight despite a VERY good appetite. He is also slightly incontinent and drinking a lot more water than normal.

Nomad is about 9.5 years of age now. He will be kept comfortable for as long as possible, but obviously it is one day at a time for the old boy now :cry:

I know Nomad has quite a few fans on here so I just wanted to let you know xx

Poor Nomad. You and he did so well getting that sore on his leg healed recently it is hard that he now is at this stage. 9.5 years is a great age for a rabbit and he is fortunate to be with you nursing him through this.

Yes, but he also has the really nasty otitis too. I am not going to push him on if we cannot get both conditions under control and I am certainly not going to put him through any surgery. Poor old man :cry:

How is Nomad this morning Jane... any improvement?

He is doing a bit better now :) He is certainly brighter within himself and moving about again. He is eating, but not as much as normal. He has always been a VERY greedy boy so for him to lose his appetite is a big issue.

His right ear is looking better but the left one is still really nasty :cry:

I am going to weigh him again later. He had dropped down to 1.4kg on Saturday, he used to be about 1.8kg.

Thank you for asking about him :)

honey61
30-05-2011, 06:51 AM
Tha's encouraging :) I hope Nomad continues to improve today bless him :D

Jack's-Jane

Just re-examined Nomad and given him his meds.
Not good news :cry:

He has lost more weight and is now down to 1.35kg. He was 1.41kg on Saturday :cry: More worrying is we are struggling with dehydration despite ongoing fluid therapy :cry:

He is eating fresh veg, grass, a tiny bit of hay and I am supplementing him with syringe feeds. But I fear we are at 'end stage' now :cry: I think I am going to have to let him go within the next few days :cry: :cry:
