He’s been comfortable all night! Lying with me and lying still for the normal amounts of time for him, just getting up to get a drink or use the litter box. Turning down the thermostat just in case. And just checked and his nose does definitely feel damp. I’ve noticed that before actually but wasn’t sure what to make of it.
Okay yeah, I’ll opt for the busier room. I’d rather someone keep a closer eye on him. The dog is generally pretty quiet too, and his barking isn’t headache-inducing like a lot of the dogs who come through the hospital. Clover is normally such a well-adjusted and outgoing bunny that logically I feel I shouldn’t worry too much, it’s just the fact…[Read more]
Middle of the island has a ton of great options, I’m really jealous! I’m out east and get anxious about my normal vet being too far from me (has caused me way too much trouble in the past), so I make it a rule to see someone close by. Any of the exotic specialist hospitals should do you good, these places do see a lot more rabbits than normal…[Read more]
Some animals like it if you cover their carrier with a towel (partially for air flow) during travel. Helps them feel more secluded and safe. And don’t play the radio too loud during the drive, keep it nice and quiet. I’d also start getting them used to their carriers by leaving them out in their play area, so the carriers aren’t too foreign when…[Read more]
Yeah, that is the reason I decided to board him rather than leave him home with my mother. The hospital takes a lot of action to ensure their boarders stay healthy during their visit, so I thought taking a bit more of a risk with his comfort and boarding him would be better than leave him home and, god forbid, he gets sick and my mother doesn’t…[Read more]
Remember that when it comes to spays and neuters, you get what you pay for. Hospitals that charge more will be taking better care of your rabbit, perform the pre-surgery prep more carefully and meticulously, and keep a better eye on your bunny after the surgery is over while he’s waking up. For example, a hospital that charges, let’s say, $300 for…[Read more]
I wouldn’t doubt if he doesn’t like the cat much cause when Clover doesn’t chase him, the cat will just kinda sneak up and stand behind him all day. XD But something strange is sometimes Clover doesn’t binky when he’s chasing, but sometimes he does!
If there’s an emergency and you need to get your bunny in a carrier immediately, then force him. Throw a towel over him, pick him up quickly, and shove him in. It might be stressful for him, but consider this: Would you rather have your bunny a bit stressed from being shoved somewhere, or have his life at risk from an untreated injury or a…[Read more]

I wanna mention that if you’re using scented Kaytee clean and cozy, you should switch to an unscented variety because the scented ones have been reported to be unsafe for small animals! I’m not exactly sure on how the scented variety affects rabbits, but it’s been known to cause problems in mice, rats, guinea pigs, and all the like. I use kaytee…[Read more]
A few days later and he seems to be in the clear! The only thing I’m worried about is he seems to be drinking less water? His usual is to go through almost a whole bowl of water in 24 hours, but since this happened, he’s only been drinking half. Should I be worried?
Most veterinarians will have payment programs where you can pay in installments. Pet insurance is also a great idea, but that sort of thing is something you want to get before your animal gets sick or hurt, so I’m not sure if you’d be able to work it out in time. Definitely research, though. As for medicating her, try to wrap her up in a towel…[Read more]
I talk to Clover a ton! We have full on conversations. I also always let him do what he wants as long as it’s safe. He’s quite the prankster. ^w^ And i kiss him goodnight and also through all hours of the day, I can never stop snuggling him! He likes it but gets annoyed sometimes, heheh. XD He’s always quick to tell me when I’m hugging him too…[Read more]
Twenty four hours later, and he’s doing fine! I’m slightly worried cause he seems to have peed less than usual today? Hard to tell, though. He usually pees in two corners of his litter box but only used one today, but I don’t have a way of telling if he peed double in the one corner. And he also maaaaay have eaten less hay, but again, hard to tell…[Read more]
I’ll pay close attention. Oh gosh, I’m so worried. >.< How long would it take to start seeing symptoms, and how long until he could take a turn for the worst? I wanna be able to know when he's in the clear.
