Thanks for all the good wishes, friends. Prairiecowboy asked if vets know how to help sick bunnies. Yes. At least our vet does. He specializes in “exotic pets,” including rabbits. And if you’ve got a sick monkey, he can help you with that too.
Rabbits have two primary skills: eating and pooping. Penny was doing neither when I took him to the vet yesterday. Turns out he has a systemic infection and has been losing blood in his urine and has a mass of stuff stuck in his belly because his digestive system shut down. He was in pain and looked most woebegone.
Under the good doctor’s care Penny has resumed pooping and will hopefully be eating by tomorrow. Then he can come home from the bunny hospital.
Extra carrots with green tops for all of you!
