Junior at the vet

Post by Thumper2001 on Wed Mar 28, 2018 8:55 pm

Can you tell when your rabbits are heading for a vet visit?
I have been watching Junior closely for at least 2 weeks because I just KNEW a stasis situation was going to come.

Because of this I practically cut the fresh herbs out and put them on a dried herb/fibafirst diet. And hay of course.
As anticipated, I got up last Wednesday to find he wasn’t eating.
Ended up at the vet for gut stimulant and pain killers. Although nothing was found to be wrong with him!
It’s so frustrating that I know when it’s coming but at the same time I am unable to prevent it.
The vet asked me how I knew it was coming but I was unable to explain myself, other than “he makes a funny face” Laughing

Next time I see the signs I’m tempted to put them on a hay only died and perhaps pro-c in the water Hmmm

Is he OK now? Can't have a poorly bun at Easter!Hugs
It's that almost uncanny bond we have with them. It's so hard to explain, even to ourselves what it is and what exactly we 'see' that convinces us all isn't well. They give us such subtle signs ... rabbits are surely the undisputed Masters of Subtle! I recall how long it took to diagnose Henry's heart condition. I knew something was wrong in August but it was just not evident at the vets; the old prey animal covering up procedure saw to that and his increased heart rate due to stress covered up signs of the main cause. Because of the heart condition and the stress it put him under he was vulnerable to minor ills which the vet spotted and treated but, of course it didn't cure the incurable. We had an whole barrage of blood tests done and it was only when the vet gave in to my pleas for an X-ray that the problem showed itself and that was five months after I got the first 'feeling' something was amiss.
I've always had a very close bond with all my animals, some more than others, like Clawed, Misty and Reboot. It's a kind of sympathy; an empathy I guess and it goes to the lengths where an illness in either affects the other. I was terribly stressed when Reboot was ill over December/January and it really affected my health quite badly.

I know when there is anything wrong with my piggies and Holly love, I have studied my pets over the years and know when there is something wrong. I agree Woodwench love, it is like a telepathic bond as well.

Impressed with your stasis spotting skills! Poor Junior, I hope he's back to normal again soon!
