The metaclop has definitely worked I bought some mint in Tesco too but will give her that later on. I gave her a few pellets but want to make sure she continues eating hay. Having said that, she could put on a little bit of weight I think as she is lighter than the other two and neither of them are overweight. It is good to see her eating and enjoying her food. Even when she was at her most poorly she was nibbling carrot so I think the vet is right when he said her sore eye is nothing to do with dental issues. She didn't flinch at all when the vet was checking her mouth.

    It's pouring with rain here so I hope she stays in the hutch. Violet and Zippy are both out in the run getting wet - silly bunnies. I don't want to shut her in the hutch though as that will stress her out.

    Going to try to sleep now and will check on her when I get up.

    I hope you can get some rest.

    Vibes for Fran x

    Thank you everyone. I have just checked on her and given her Baytril mixed with some juice. All three buns were out in the run and Fran was in one of the tunnels Am hoping that means she is feeling a bit better as she has remained in her hutch for the past couple of days. I was worried about her getting wet but it is nice and dry in the tunnel - she is quite a sensible bun really.

    Am going to try to take Fran back to the vet tomorrow. She is still soaking wet underneath and has lost more weight. I bathed her today and her skin is sore so I put some sudacrem on it. I am terrified she has a tumour like Bochy did She is eating more enthusiastically now and is leaving the hutch and going in the run but she is not right.

    Vibes would be really appreciated. She is such a good, gentle bun

    Poor Fran

    Personally I'd ask the Vet to run some diagnostics now, starting with a full blood profile and Urinalysis. She may need admitting to have her fur shaved and her urine scald properly assessed.

    I hope she can be helped to feel a lot better, poor girlie

    Have an appointment at 1500. They are really busy today.

    Am not sure what to do if they admit her as she is in a trio which I was intending to make a quad once the weather improves and bonding inside won't cause problems with them going back outside. I don't think they would have room for all three buns and I can't physically carry three and don't have a carrier big enough anyway. Their car park is tiny so I often have to park on the road, but a way up as there are double yellow lines outside the surgery and it sounds like they will be too busy to help me. The receptionist said it was 'hectic' today.

    I think I will take Zippy and Violet in a separate carrier and take advice from the vet about whether to leave them there or not. They are used to a lot of space and I don't want either of them going into stasis because they are stressed but equally I don't want to leave Fran on her own.

    I have just given her some more herbs and she looks so bright and nommed them enthusiastically. Am just so, so relieved that I now have my pension money that I can access if I have to, to pay the bill so I don't have the additional stress of trying to borrow money from friends. I am also doing a lot of overtime at the moment to try to get more work done in the house.

    Thank you for the vibes. Fran and I appreciate them. I don't start work until midnight today and am home all day so I can keep checking on her. So far I haven't had to syringe feed her. I haven't seen her eat pellets (SS) but she enjoys carrot and cauliflower stalk so I don't think her teeth are a problem. Her eye is better than it was so I think the flushing helped.

    I will bring her in if the vet recommends it but I have bought a new snugglesafe now as my old ones didn't retain the heat all night and she has never felt cold to the touch. It would be easier to look after her if she was inside but, again, I would have to separate her from the other two.

    It is so difficult to know what to do for the best. Hopefully, the vet can help me work that out. I use the same vet as Gem does now and they are really good.
