Aria first acts scared when I put her in the carrier.  Then on the car ride over and back, she explores her carrier to see if there is a way out I think.  Then she gives up and lies down.  Once we get to the vet and she is out on the vet table, she comes over to me and tries to hide her head between my arm and side.  I usually have a sweatshirt and just allow her to hide her head in the front of my sweatshirt.  She is very good with the techs and the vet.  She doesn’t bite them like my other bunnies have.  She lets them do what they need to.

When the vet appointment is over and we are just sitting in the waiting room waiting for the bill, she begins looking for things to munch on, so she has hay available to her in one corner.  One vet offers little papaya tablets, and she will eat those.  She is one of the most adaptable bunnies at the vet.  Never had a bunny like this — no other bunny I had would eat there!  LOL. 

Here she is begging for nose rubs while we wait.  This was a couple of weeks ago when she had a bout of stasis/gas and she perked right up after the vet visit.  This was after she had blood drawn, xrays and been poked and prodded. 

She’s saying – Can we go home now?? Pet me! Pet me please!
