    This is so true. It is mentally, emotionally, and physically demanding when a beloved pet is ill.

    We have so much in common T, I do exactly the same thing !! I have a Health Journal for every Rabbit and I record everything in it, including regular weight checks, vaccination dates, full details of any health issue that occurs and exact treatment prescribed by my lovely Vet (who is well aware of my neurosis !!)

    I too find it helps to have everything written down. Mind you, I needed a very large shelf to store all the Journals when I used to have over 35 Rabbits...........


    I hope that Dash has been reasonably stable over the last few days xx

    I aspire to be that organized. Thanks for the idea of doing a journal for each bunny.
    It is good to have individual dosage information readily available when a recurrence happens so I do not make critical mistakes when nerves are frazzled.

    I think that is the first time I have ever been referred to as 'organized' !! Chaos on legs is probably more accurate

    After I cleaned Dash's litterbox late Monday night he was active and he could not get enough greens, yet I thought his tummy felt quite full. Prior to cleaning his litterbox had lots of poos but it was hard to tell how long ago they were produced. He was off his Cisapride for 5 days so, after some deliberation, I decided to put him back on the meds. By morning he passed only two poos, one was multiple times the size of his normally large oval poos. He also did not drink much fresh water. I knew I made the right decision to restarted the meds the prior night. Even though he felt fuller than he did the evening before, he was still interested in eating some fresh greens he was given. By the time I got home from the supermarket to buy more dandelion greens, he passed a lot of poos. I now have him back on the Cisapride. It is not sold in the regular pharmacy and has to be obtained by a pharmacy that compounds the drug so I have it made with strawberry flavor which Dash takes right from the dosage syringe most of the time so at least it is not a struggle to get him to take the meds.
