Send Good Vibes

Hello all,

Mrs. Sniffles asked me to have everyone send good vibes her way. She thinks her bunny parents are worrying to much about her...

She did get a lil bit more sniffly overnight but she has gotten her dose of antibiotics last night and this morning.

As she mentioned, she had to go back to the vet yesterday. The vet poked, prodded, and took a nose swab of the lil girl, who was not very happy. She was started on fruit flavored Baytril, while the nose swab is cultured. The vet did not seem that alarmed, as we caught it very early. The vet commented that we knew she was sick before she really manifested any symptoms. (Mrs. S just says it is b/c she has such great bunny parents and just know when she is off.)

Mrs. S doesn't like to take her meds... (does any bun?) She even managed to give bunny daddy a good nip this morning to show her displeasure. The evening dose we can add as salad dressing to the food. It is the morning dose with no food that is causing the trouble. Even the bunny burrito doesn't really work... How do you buns prefer a syringe full of stuff to be given?

If anyone wants more info for their own edification the University of Miami (in Florida) has a great site. (http://www.bio.miami.edu/hare/hare.html)

Here is an article on sneezing, runny noses and the like in rabbits.

We mostly don't like it at all. But, the stand-up facing out bunny burrito (firmly held) and the syringe in the side behind the teeth sometimes works. But you got to be careful not to choke us with that stuff .. Oh good luck there kiddo ..
