The Mission of Luv-N-Bunns:

  • Rescue domestic rabbits from abandoned stray situations, kill shelters, private relinquishments and hoarding cases
  • Provide nurturing foster homes that will ensure proper care, shelter and love for each animal in our foster network
  • Provide necessary veterinary care including spay/neuter surgery
  • Screen applications to find perfect forever homes for each rabbit that we rescue
  • Host outreach events in the community to provide education and information on the proper care of domestic rabbits

 

We stress the importance of neutering and spaying all rabbits to reduce the ever-growing population of unwanted rabbits and to prevent highly prevalent reproductive cancers in unfixed rabbits. Since our inception in 2007, we have accomplished our mission by saving the lives of almost 2,000 abandoned rabbits. However, the over-abundance of unwanted domestic rabbits keeps us working toward our goals, year after year.

Together we can accomplish our mission. Reach out today if you’d like to help!

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.

BUNNY CARE CORNER

Hello there, friends! It's me again, Jasper Jellybean, and today I have a really important topic for us to discuss. Sibelle requested a BCC column on what to include in a bunny first aid kit. As anyone with a rabbit knows, us bunns often seem to choose a weekend, holiday, or the nighttime not to feel well - basically any time your regular vet is unavailable. It's like an unwritten rule of rabbitdom.

And so the first and most important thing I would say to include in a bunny first aid kit is the phone number of both your regular rabbit-savvy vet and also a rabbit-savvy emergency vet. Us bunns can be really resilient, but we can also be pretty fragile, and time is often of the essence. Please, please, please - I cannot stress this enough - choose both vets even before you bring your bunn home. You do not want to be scrambling around and trying to find one when your rabbit already needs medical care.

Now, that said ... there are some items it's super important for you to have on hand at home. Infant gas drops (simethicone) can be very helpful when your bunny has some gas pains or an upset stomach. You should also have a bag of either Oxbow Critical Care or Sherwood Pet Health Recovery Food. Us bunnies can't go without eating for very long, and if you have a bunn who is refusing even his or her favorite things to munch on, you may need to force feed with a syringe (another item to include in the first aid kit). A VERY IMPORTANT note here : your rabbit's vet should be consulted before force feeding so that you can make sure the bunny does not have a blockage. If so, force feeding can actually make things worse. But - it's still a good idea to include this in your first aid kit, because there are many times where it ends up being necessary. Also, a #BunnyProTip for all the bunns out there : it is hilariously funny if you spit out the critical care on your human's face. Bonus points if you can kick the syringe and send it flying across the room. Not that I would know anything about that...

🙃

Also important to include in the first aid kit? Any medications your bunn is currently taking. For example, some rabbits with arthritis or other conditions may need daily pain medicine. For me ... I have had a clogged tear duct in my right eye a few times over the past several years, so Ma always has a supply of eye drops from my vet, just in case I need them. Please always note the expiration date on any medicines, though.

Other items to include : something to keep your bunny's temperature up in cases of stasis (some people use heating pads for this, and I also have a cozy blanket!). A digital thermometer so you can keep track of your rabbit's temperature if he/she isn't feeling well is also a good thing to put into that kit. For a tutorial on how to take your bunn's temperature, check out this video from the Georgia House Rabbit Society : https://www.houserabbitga.com/taking-rabbit-temperature. You can add some towels into your kit, too, in case a "bunny burrito" is needed. It's also a good idea to have styptic powder. This will help to clot up a bleeding nail. A couple years ago, one of my nails got caught in something and the whole thing ripped off. Blood ended up in three different rooms, and my poor Ma ended up in a panic and rushed me to the vet. I am not exaggerating when I tell you that my vet and vet tech had to calm HER down as much as me!

Okay, friends, now I'd love for you to chime in. What items are in your bunn's first aid kit?

Until next time ...

Nose boops and binkies,
Jasper Jellybean 🐰

P.S. This picture has nothing to do with my post, but it makes Ma smile every single time she looks at it, and we hope it will make you happy, too!
