Luv-N-Bunns

Rescue and placement for abandoned bunnies in the Philadelphia area. We take in rabbits who are no longer wanted, have been abandoned, and/or have been abused. Once cleared by our vet, we have them neutered/spayed and find new, loving homes for each. In addition, we host various events to educate people about rabbits and their needs.

Hello all. Kristin here!! Robert's surgery was last week. There was more infection than expected but our doctor was conservative about how much bone he removed so that Robert would be able to eat. The rest was packed with more antibiotic beads. On Friday Robert will return to the doctor so they can drain any pus that is in there.
He's slowly feeling better. He's getting used to eating with part of his jaw missing. We are finally getting some better poops!! He's still a happy little boy who is enjoying his head rubs and flopping out in our living room.
Thank you to all who donated towards his care. If you would still like to donate you may do so through PayPal: luvnbunns@gmail.com or through the donate button on this post.

BUNNY CARE CORNER

Happy Tuesday, everyone! You know what that means: it's time for our weekly chat. Before I hop into today's topic, though, I want to ask if anybody has suggestions for future columns. A good writer interacts with his audience and makes his readers part of the process. Because I strive to be the VERY BEST writer I can be, and also because I'm lucky enough to have the coolest people reading my words, I am opening this up to you. Let me know what you'd like to hear about - your wish is my command! That should tell you how much I like you guys, because obviously it's supposed to be the other way around, with the bunny's wish being the human's command.

Just ask my Ma. HahaHA.

The only time Ma doesn't follow my instructions? When I inform her that she should cancel my vet appointments. She says it's out of love, though, and that it's super important for us bunns to get checkups. This is true not only when we aren't feeling well, but also when we're doing great. For a lot of rabbits, an annual appointment is fine. For others of us, more frequent visits are necessary. I go every 3-6 months to have my teeth looked at, because my molars have malocclusion and get points on them sometimes from not growing the right way. Other bunns are prone to sinus issues, or tummy troubles (I fall into this category too, hmph), and so they also see their vet more often. I get blood work done once a year, too. And okay, if I'm being honest, I can understand why this is a good thing. Rabbits are such fragile little loves, and because we are prey animals, a lot of us tend to hide it when something is bothering us. Even though it isn't the most fun thing in the world to be checked by a vet, it IS absolutely a must to keep us healthy. Most vets will also offer a nail trim during the appointment, so you can get a pawdicure at the same time.

Pro tip for all the bunns out there: a checkup AND a pawdicure means you can ask for two treats after the appointment instead of one. Clearly your person will have to make things up to you with double the devotion. (Although, if you're like me, you might have to begrudgingly admit that your vet is actually a really awesome and caring person who only wants to look out for you. Also, they are usually pretty great at acknowledging our amazingness. My vet once asked my Ma how she ever gets anything done with me around, because she'd just want to play with my cute ears all day. I suppose I'm not stubborn enough to say that my vet is actually quite wonderful.)

One more thing - please, please, PLEASE make sure to take your bunny to a rabbit-savvy vet. I know the humans who run LNB talk about this a lot, and they're right. It is crucial that us bunns see a veterinarian who is experienced with rabbits. There aren't as many of them around as there are for animals like dogs and cats, but here's a terrific list to help you find one near you: https://rabbit.org/vet-listings/.

Alright, friends, now it's your turn : tell me, how often does your bunn go to the vet?

Until next time ...

Nose boops and binkies,

Our dear friends Amanda Lynn and Terri Zappala-Morrow took on some public education this week, bringing their rabbits to an elementary school CARE club! Kids and bunnies all had a wonderful time, and learned about bunny care.

Maggie hopes you'll be all ears when it comes to this story about her hoppily-ever-after. We're so thrilled that this LNB alum is enjoying life in such a wonderful home. Here's what her mama has to say:

"Maggie Meatballs came to me about two years ago, and quickly received a name change to Magnolia so she didn't develop a complex about being a former meat rabbit. She's a very happy girl who does binkies every morning, loves all manner of treats, and is having a hard time winning the affections of the cat. Her husbun's name is Binky, and she loves face smooshes with him. It's rare to see Maggie without happy feet. Currently, her favorite activity is receiving head and face rubs. It's been her favorite activity for at least a year and a half.
She's also up to over 10 pounds, and is the size of my 15 pound cat."
