    Default Poor sambuca ( do not read if easily upset )



    This is Sambuca
    He arrived earlier in the week after his owner advertised that she wanted him gone because he had started with head tilt .
    She advertised him and his son together for 20

    I knew she had previously lost a bunny to head tilt ( I had offered to take that one but it died )

    So I took them in .

    Well poor boy headtilt is the least of his worries .

    If she is to be believed he is around 3 1/2 yrs old
    Yet he has severe end stage dental disease .
    I sent him in for a dental ( risky because of his newly started head tilt , but couldn't be avoided ) and during the procedure most of his molars just crumbled and / or fell out .

    His head tilt is getting worse and he is refusing to eat
    He also has a runny eye

    I don't believe these bunnies even know what hay is .. Even the little one doesn't eat it .

    We will do our best for this little mite ... But vets prognosis isn't at all good .
    Even if we get him eating he runs the risk of jaw abscesses .. And if he doesn't start to eat by him self soon then we may have to let him go .


    I am so so angry .

    While I was syringe feeding him at 10 pm last night I hope his old owner was enjoying herself out somewhere or having a cosy relaxing night in

    Poor boy, shame on his owner for not getting him the attention he so obviously needed.

    Oh Angie.....................

    I continue to try to believe in Karma, Sambuca's previous owner will get their just deserts eventually.

    Sending millions of vibes for the poor Bunny xx

    Gosh. Poor bunny that passed away. Poor Sambuca and poor baby. And yet the ex-owner will probably feel no remorse. Thank goodness that you are there to care, even though in an ideal world it shouldn't be necessary. Thank you.

    I second this. Mimzy has been post tilt for over 5 years. So many people, my family and (some) vets included, told me to give up on him the first week. Only now, at age 10 +, am I thinking it is almost his time, but for other reasons than the angle of his head. Poor Sambuca and the other bunnies. I hope this witch gets what's coming to her and never gets another rabbit or any other animals for that matter...she obviously can't handle the responsibility.

    Bless you, Angie. They are safe with you now, no matter the outcome...but I do hope for a miracle for them. xxxxxxxxxxx

    Poor baby - I hope he surprises everyone & can pull it around. So she keeps replacing bunnies when they have health problems ?
