    Default Elsa-U/D 10th July RIP- The Last Post

    For those of you who may be interested I thought I had better start posting Elsa updates in the appropriate sub forum rather than in 'General Chat'

    Today there is still some pus being produced from her abscessed wound However, the amount coming out during each flushing is reducing significantly ever day. The swelling is much smaller now too and the thickened stem under the abscess is also much smaller and softer. Elsa is tolerating all the treatment so well and she will eat treats during it all We will continue with the daily wound flushing and packing with manuka honey and a decision about further surgery will be made on Friday. She will also remain on abx and Metacam.

    I cant imagine the late dear little Eliza Doolittle tolerating a fraction of what Elsa is putting up with. Eliza may have been a tiny Bunny but did not suffer fools (Me!!) gladly and she absolutely loathed any hands on care. I do miss the feisty wee Bunny

    Eliza was such a character, that you'll always miss her. Great news that Elsa's abscess seems to be responding to treatment and that she is coping so well with it too x

    Well technically I guess I am 'Fostering' her but she wont be going back to ARC any time soon !! ARC are completely swamped with Rabbits, they took in 43 'Meat Rabbits', Elsa being one of them. Numerous Does amongst them are on pregnancy watch, including Elsa Now that Elsa is here it frees up a space for ARC.

    I think Endeavour might also have something to say about his betrothed one disappearing

    Pleased that her wound seems to be responding well to treatment.

    It is great to hear that Elsa is responding well to your love and care and her wound is clearing up. I've done abscess cleaning for a couple of my bridge buns and there is a sense of satisfaction from knowing that you are making them better. It's uncomfortable for the rabbits but I think they know, deep down, that what you are doing is making a massive difference to them and I am convinced they understand that. Bravo to you.

    I was hopeless as a fosterer too

    It is so much easier when you have a bun who is OK with hands on care. I am lucky mine have always tolerated it without too much stress. Fran does not like being bathed but she soon recovers when I wrap her in a towel and cuddle her. I hated having to deal with my buns' and cats' abscesses. It looked so painful for them and I am a bit squeamish too.

    It sounds like you and Elsa are winning though, Jane. Topping up the vibes for her to recover completely and to not be pregnant. How much longer do you have to wait to find out? I remember being on pregnancy watch with Hannah hamster who I fostered for ARC (another example of my failed fostering) and she suddenly appeared much thinner and the nest was moving. Hopefully, Elsa won't be kindling. She has been through so much already.
