Our latest Broken Bunny is little Lady Daye. This bunny is only 8 months old. She was purchased in a pet store for a 3 year old child. Of course, things did not work out. She bit the child and the parents were going to “let her go”. Luckily she came into the hands of a wonderful caring man who has other rabbits. He quickly realized that Lady Day had crooked front teeth. They were looked at and then it was discovered that she had an abscess in her jaw. So she went for dental surgery. Her bad incisors were removed. They had to go as they prevented her from eating well. The jaw abscess was in the bone. It was a 2 and a half hour operation to open up the bone and remove the pus. The cavity was packed with antibiotic. A hole was purposely left open so that antibacterial solution can be administered. Lady Daye is on pain medication and being fed but she is already perking up. We are hoping the abscess has been defeated.
This is under the chin. A hole has purposely been left so that antibacterial treatments can be done.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization. We especially need help to keep the facility clean. This mainly involves keeping their cages clean so that our bunnies enjoy healthy lives. The cleaning consists of replacing used litter, newspaper, towels, sweeping and changing water. We normally need a person for 2 or 3 hours in the morning and afternoon. This is not a dirty smelly job because the cleaning is done every day so that there no chance for a buildup of dirt and odour. We also need people who can handle bunnies so they can be moved from their inside cages to outdoor exercise pens. To volunteer please submit this form.
