Awww...so much like my wee Fiver. I'm glad he's doing better. 🥰

Also the girls improvement is very uplifting.

Sorry to hear Morse was ill. Ebon has a slow gut too, always been an issue since we moved here. I blame poor diet, tinned dog food or insufficient homemade and her history with things like apoquel and nexgard. It's frustrating. I hope he's feeling more himself now.

Very much hoping you can tend to yourself at last and get the rest you so desperately need. More healing vibes all round.
(((((Huge hugs)))))) xxxxx
Thanks for your support everyone. I have appreciated it very much. At the moment JJ has almost fully recovered. He is not on any meds today.

Dara is still dry and not spot weeing. She still has some bladder sludge though. It’s going to be a big challenge to manage this as she refuses to eat any fresh veg/herbs/forage apart from Cavolo Nero and Coriander. She loves all dried forages. She might it a bit of fresh grass, but much prefers hay. Despite her very dry diet she hardly drinks any water, she never has. I have tried all ‘tricks’ to encourage her to drink more. But as most people who know Nethies they are seldom out witted by a mere human.

Roisin’s respiratory symptoms are improving and she’s eating well. She is still a bit lethargic though. I have noticed her become more sedentary for a few months. Our Vet believes it’s due to her chronically compromised lung function caused by scaring from lots of previous infections.

I just hope all three Bunnies can get back to their individual ‘normals’. Having all three sick at the same time has been a challenge to say the least. Hence your supportive posts have helped me cope x
It is so nice to read all three bunnies have improved under your expert care.
I hope the positive updates on the bunnies means you can get some needed rest.
Oh, come on J.J. Please don't get sick again, sweetie. Jane needs a break. (((((((((((Healing vibes)))))))))))
Hoping C will be able to help. xxxx
Poor J-J. He certainly chooses his moments doesn't he :( I hope he responds to treatment asap.
