New Flemish Giant babies transferred from another organization that rescued them from a meat breeder! No names yet but they are 4 months old and both spayed/neutered this week. They already have a forever home. Sweet babies! Big babies!
As if the sadness of Maria was not enough we found that Buster had two lung tumors. He was breathing a bit heavy and went to the vet to have it checked out. Xrays shows densities and ultrasound confirmed that they are tumors. Dr. Ness put him on a few herbal support supplements and we will keep him as comfortable as possible. Clyde, the black bunny, is his bondmate and depends so much on him.
Wednesday we had to say goodbye to our sanctuary rabbit, Maria. She endured two surgeries for infected tooth roots. Just three months later the whole right side of her face and behind her eye was infection. Abscess in her third eye lid on the right – lots of little pockets of pus and little abscesses. The left side (where there was teeth) was spurs and lesions on her tongue and cheek. The teeth didn’t line up at all. She was eating a ton and still lost a pound since July. She seemed weak and so thin and miserable. The right eye leaked so much and she drooled so much that she was wet from her face, down her chest, her front legs and paws and around her neck. I was blotting it everyday with thick towels. I think we’ve done all we could for her. I sure will miss her. She was a brave little soul.
Sweet Annabelle was adopted! Thanks to Tim and his son, Tim for giving her a forever home!
