    Default The Late Lord Lopsley-26th Sept- Christabel Contacting FHB

    I fear the worst for Lopsley
    Nothing confimed yet but he is displaying symptoms I have, sadly, seen before
    Thankfully I do have some HEALTHY bouncy Buns here as with Unky A and this yet-to-be-confirmed problem for Lord Lopsley I feel somewhat drained.
    But I knew what I was letting myself in form by having so many Bunnies.
    I just wish I could work miracles for the poorly ones....

    He has a 'dropped' abdomen and a boney spine. It looks like his belly is filling with fluid. He is much quieter now and although he eats well he looks in poor condition.
    I have a feeling the 'attempting to get the Velveteen Breed Standard' has created a Bun with a heart too small to cope with the demands of a big body

    His heart-rate is normal but his heart sounds are not.
    I am going to arrange for him to have some tests next week but I wont be at all surprised, although I will be devastated, if he goes the same way as your lovely Drake.....

    I've just sent an email to a lady I know who breeds them to see if it's something she has come across in the breed or if it's just bad luck, I'll let you know what they say. Please get better LL, we love you to pieces.
