Bunny Medical

What a scare we had with Doc! What seemed like all of a sudden his front leg swelled, was red, warm…obviously serious. Anyone that is familiar with rabbits knows that infection in one of those little thumpers is no little matter. My rabbit vet is about an hour away so off we went. It was quite an infection. But the staff at Chabot Veterinary Clinic are great with rabbits. We left there armed with pain killers, lots of antibiotics and lessons on “flushing the wound.”

For two weeks we gave medicines every 8 hours and flushed the open wound twice a day.

Admittedly, Doc was not at all excited about any of it. But he has been quite the trooper. We’re just ending week three. The wound is completely healed, he’s off of his pain meds, and on the last round of antibiotics.

I still have no idea what happened or what could have possibly caused it.

Doc’s personality is back…and actually, sweeter than ever. He’s so used now to having all of this done that he is pretty calm about everything. He’s taken to sitting next to me when I’m spinning or weaving and LOVES hanging out on the ‘big’ chair. He’s a happy boy and we’re very lucky!

 

Cottontail Farms and Blissful Bear

While running the business, The Blissful Bear and running the rabbitry, Cottontail Farms simultaneously, they’ve shared a website, Slowly, as the rabbitry is growing, I’ve decided to separate them some. A little hectic, yes. But it makes sense. The Blissful Bear focuses more on crochet items, soaps and other fun items. Cottontail Farms’ main focus is the amazing German Angora rabbits, fiber and luxury yarns. They’re heading two different directions.

And, as the rabbitry is expanding with Daisy expecting, I can better blog the fun happenings at the farm!
