So, yesterday I got Bunny back.
But.. she is now lacking one leg. Yes, the doctor had to amputate her left hind leg. AMPUTATE, I repeat. So, now, she’s a 3-legged bunny. Poor thing.
So what happened? Let me cut the story short.
She sprained her leg. Took to vet. Gave medications. Saw improvements. She started to use her left hind leg back.
Suddenly, that left leg bled. Turned out she was eating the leg. Took to vet. Had to wrap her leg. Every other day.
BUT! She kept taking the wrap off. and bite it every chance she got.
Two weeks of wrapping and wrapping the wound. So much frustration. One day, her leg gone bad to worse. She looked so depressed and got skinnier.
Went to vet for consultation. Estimated cost RM600 maximum.
Dad didn’t wanna pay.
Mum asked me to slaughter the BOTH of the rabbits to make satay.
Mum tried to make me see it in different perspective. Slaughtered animals go to heaven, atleast we end her suffering in a good way, bla bla bla…
I heavily agreed to it. Asked mum to ask dad to do it first thing next morning.
Dad didn’t have the hearts to. He let me bring Bunny to the vet.
So I did.
A week later. The doc called. Picked her up. They charged me RM 410 including medications.
And now, she looks much happier, and healthier. She started to eat again. The doctor even said she eat A LOT! hahaha! So, all in all she responded very well. (Some rabbits experience stress due to the change)
That’s Bobby on the other cage. For now, they have to be separated while Bunny’s stitches still intact. When I brought Bunny home, Bobby got soooo excited. He was running around. He stood on his litter box looking at Bunny. He even tried to ‘dig’ the cage, as if hoping to get to Bunny. Everybody say AWWW!
They’re about 4 months now. Here are pictures of them when we just bought them, about 2 and half months.
Ok, done gaga moments.
