My Rabbit is Recovering Well

It’s been about a week since my rabbit amazing and surprisingly recovered. Hmm, I wonder what was wrong with her. Her bald patch under her chin does seem like it’s growing back it’s fur, what a relief because she did start to look creepy without it. My rabbit lost a good amount of fur under her chin along with a little fur on both of her cheeks beneath the whiskers. I’ve been checking it everyday and I see more and more fur growing back. Bunny has gained a lot of weight since then and is catching up with the others. I have learned so much from this experience, patience is number on that list. People where actually telling me to let her go, that there is no hope. She really did look awful. People were telling me to take her out of her misery.I never gave up on Bunny, and this is truly rewarding. She is eating very well running around all over the place and just spectacular. I think this rabbit is a miricle. Maybe I might just change her name to “Miricle” or even “Hope”.

Sick Rabbit

Recently, my baby rabbit “Bunny” had been sick. She had been drooling for days. Although I cleaned and dried her everyday she was very dirty around the nose and face area especially after eating grass. Her cheeks and chin were soggy, she had become an eyesore. Being in a foreign country where vets, especially ones experienced with rabbits are not heard of, I was very worried about Bunny. Thank god for the internet, I learned what could be wrong with her. When a rabbit drools chances are it’s a dental problem. But how can my rabbit already have a dental problem when she’s only two months old, her teeth can’t be overgrown already?Another thing is that Bunny was eating and drinking normally. What if there is something wrong with her teeth who will clip them or file them down.She’s only a baby and getting very bony. I continued feeding her normally and did more research, hoping to find that drooling could a symptom of something else that made more sense. It was hard trying to wash and dry such a small rabbit everyday. One day after giving her a stuggling wash I was drying up her face  with her towel when she SCREAMED! I couldn’t beleive what I heard. I froze in horror, at first I thought it was my 8 year old son that was next to me. Until she screamed again. My heart started to thump. She screamed the third time then the fourth. Oh my god, what have I done? I left her alone for a minute to calm down. My poor Bunny rabbit, I felt so bad for her. With all the rabbits I have owned in my life this is the first time I heard one scream, I never knew they could scream until now. This situation only raised my level of stress and worry, I felt helpless so I began to seriously pray for her. I started to consider getting her an antibiotic hoping that if she had any kind of infection it’ll go away. The next morning when I woke up my  daughter rushed to tell me that Bunny rabbit looked better. I didn’t beleive my eyes she was all dry and hopping around with the other rabbits. I picked her up to have  look, she had a bald patch under her chin from the acid of her saliva  but it was surely dry. She looked at me literally with a smile like she was telling me “Look at me, I’m better!” That just made my day, as a matter of fact it made my week! My Bunny rabbit is well and gaining weight immediatly.

Proud Rabbit Owner

Since I was a small child I’ve always been fascinated with rabbits. These adorable creatures bring so much joy. They come in different sizes, breeds, colors and different personalities. All which are more beautiful than the other. There is no such thing as an ugly rabbit.  I have owned and bred hundreds of rabbits over the years. I just can’t get enough of them. Rabbits are easy to take care of. First of all before getting a rabbit make sure you have a nice home for it. Your new bunny will need a lot of space. If you have a rabbit hutch for it, it’s great but keep in mind that rabbits, like any animal, loves to be free to hop around and play. They need at least 4-6 hours of exercise a day. I normally let my rabbits free all day to play in my closed, safe yard. What I mean by safe, is there are no other animals around like cats or dogs to harm them. My yard is fenced all around. So they enjoy their playtime all day untill it’s dusk when it’s time to bring them into their indoor cages for the night. They have plenty of fresh water available to them at all times. I leave pellets and hay for them in their cages and plant special rabbit greens in the yard so they have their fresh greens along with freshgrass during the day just like in the wild. Rabbits need to have food and water readily available to them 24/7 because they are continuously eating. They are the most playful at dawn and dusk. That’s the time i usually enjoy inviting them into my home. They love to jump around all over the sofas and coffee tables. It’s hardest to catch them when they know it’s time to go back to the cages. A couple of them go back on their own, but not Candy and Buck, I get a good workout before I catch those two and get them into their cages. I have so much more to say about my beloved bunnies but I’ll save it for another time.
