    Thanks everyone

    Bigwig is doing well, eating more and back to more normal behaviours. She's at our regular vets this afternoon to decide about reducing the diuretic, she'll still be on antibiotics, not sure about metacam if we should reduce that yet. Still waiting to hear from the exotic vets re CT scan.

    I'm worried Jasmine has a blocked duct and she's very snuffly. Her teeth were checked, I guess I should continue with the meds for now.

    Just as one gets better the other is poorly! Glad to hear Bigwig is doing better though. Good luck with the CT scan. I really hope Jasmine gets sorted quickly aswell so you can relax a while x

    We want to eventually get a wifey for Mr Chief but realised we will have to save up so we have a safety net first. I dread the thought of having two of them sick at once. Eeek!

    Sending you more vibes and hope you have both bunnies healthy again soon

    Thank you Yes sadly everything seems to happen at once doesn't it when you have multiple pets!

    We decided to keep Bigwig on all 4 medications for another week, so next week will see how she goes with reducing the diuretic.

    I may need to start a new thread re Jasmine's eye but does anyone have any tips on how to clean stained fur? Her actual eye is looking better, there's less/sometimes no discharge in the lower corner but it's hard to tell as her fur is stained yellow, very crusty and stiff. I've been cleaning it with boiled water (cooled) and hibiscrub but it's making it hard to tell if she's really improving. I'm thinking the fur might need to be shaved, but that would mean another vet trip and she's not due a check up until next week. Will add pics tonight.

    I'm glad Bigwig is doing well and that Jasmine's eye is looking better. I hope you can get her fur clean so you can keep a better eye on whether the discharge is getting less bad or not.

    Sorry for a late update. Bigwig has been the same really, she's been on 6 weeks of baytril now and about 3/4 of Frusol and Metacam alongside 2 weeks of Penicillin injections. Following the specialists advice we tried to reduce the metacam first, and she went downhill. Started coughing again and sitting upy to breathe So she's back to full dose (0.6ml twice per day) but still isn't doing as well as before. We're going back to see the specialist for a repeat X ray or possible CT, but he's off until Wednesday I think it's the 24th (in 2 weeks time) I really hope she picks up before then as it seems a long wait atm

    Sorry to hear that Bigwig has not really improved a great deal . I am wondering if the Specialist may consider adding a bronchodilator to her meds ? Sending more vibes for her x

    Thanks both. I'm just worrying there's something else as they said her lungs are really good apart from this one mass (suspected abscess from the lung wash), but why would metacam have such an impact on this? She goes really downhill on even a slightly reduced dose. If she's still not great Monday I'll call the exotic vets although the specialist is off, they do have exotic nurses and 2 more vets in training but I know they work at different branches I wouldn't be able to get to.
