If yall remember a while back Chipmunk hurt his middle didget onthe back left leg climbing his cage. since then he has been acting normal except for his back foot being slightly twisted out and the vet said not to bother with his foot too much if he is acting like it is ok. well I was trimming nails and looked closely at his foot to notice that what looks like a piece of bone is now sticking out!!!!! so we are off to the vet to see what she can do. has anyone else had an issue like this? My vet said depending on how bad it might be Chipmunk might loose his toe. I am afraid he might develop an absess and loos his foot, but the vet said not too worry too much cause he is still running  around and eating and pooping normal. ok so now what do I do? listen to her or worry like any bun parent would? any advise would help.... PLEASE... I will keep everyone posted when we get back from the trip...

Chipmunk keeps looking at me like "what's wrong with you?" maybe cause I am freaking out...

I would take your vet's advice. Just remember how many spays/neuters and other injuries she's got your through alright. I think her seeing it though is important.

BUT I also know you can't just turn off the "worry" with a bun parent

Goodluck//healing vibes to Chipmunk. I hope all turns out well.

Is it the toe area you're seeing this or more the heel? Just asking because they sometimes get that bald spot (& sometimes a callous) on the heel and it can look like bone.

From the looks of your condos, you use carpet in them. Does his habitat have this too? It would probably be good for him if his foot's a bit wonky.

Hope the appt goes well.

Back from the vet. And here is the news... He does have a broken toe and it is bone that has worked its way through the skin. The joint has completly severed now. So the bad news is it has to be amputated, but the good news is there is no sign of infection and other then that the vet said chipmunk is in amazing health. So he is scheduled to have it done on the 2nd of october since thats when raven and cinnamon r going in to get fixed that day. Thank you for all your support.. I will keep yall posted

Goodness!

So is there anything you have to in the meantime? Antibiotics or pain meds or does it not seem to be effecting him?

He isnt acting like he is in any pain, and the vet was impressed on how it looked, with no infection signs or anything. She said just to make sure he is on soft flooring and not to take him outside to play, and to constantly clean his potty box. She is being so nice as to only charge us the cost of anisthesia and meds for the surgery!! She is so caring, but if he acts up or seems like he is in pain to bring him right in so she can give him some pain meds.

Sorry to hear that. I'm sure he will be able to get on just fine without his toe though.

Poor little Chipmunk! Your vet sounds amazing though, especially with charging you so little, but I guess with how many buns you have she's more than happy to. With a sick bunny I know what it's like to not be able to turn off the worry switch either!

@ jersygirl, I know the community raised $12,000 for her because she does so much for everyone. She is doing well and hopefully have the new clinic open in the spring. Right now she remodeled a prefab home for her office.
