We Hit The Trifecta At The Vets

Hi, everybun! It's been a while! Blame it on the fact that everything is getting ripe in the garden (why do I forget every year that August is mostly about the harvest around here?), and the fact that the oldest one is home for a visit. My car time has ramped up considerably, and early this week Weasley decided to add to my driving totals.

The boy didn't seem right, but I wasn't sure what was up. He's never had GI stasis before, but this didn't seem exactly like what I had seen with other rabbits. A visit to the vet's and we found he has
  1. A touch of stasis, not full blown, but getting there,
  2. A severe infection in his nasal passages, caused or enhanced by his glaucoma/blocked tear duct situation,
  3. A tooth that needs correcting.


Yeah! He's an over-achiever!. We are treating the stasis, and he's getting Gentocyn eye drops, but nothing else for the infection until the stasis is fixed. And the tooth is also waiting until his digestive situation is more stable, although, yes, it may be contributing to the situation. We've had a couple of trips to the vet for hydration, which is causing another problem. He's not very stable on his feet these days, and the car trip is putting stress on his bad leg that he injured last November. As of this very moment, however, he is eating some Bunny Basics T, so hopefully we are headed in the right direction. Keep your fingers crossed for us, please!

Not the sort of trifecta one hopes for. Wishing Weasley the best, keep us posted. Can he be wrapped like a burrito during transport, or does he find that discombobulating too?

Lots of feel much better vibes to dear Wesley. No fun, definitely not the trio I would want...

Oh dear--Weasley had to go and outdo Mr. Mick in the vet department, didn't he? We will keep him in thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery.

Well, maybe he'll come out a winner. It isn't much fun to have a bunch of stuff hit at one time. I always worry about things like stressing them and then aggravating whatever's going on. Sure know it stresses me! Here's sending good vibes your way.

Oh man Wesley, are you purposely torturing your mother? We are sending best wishes for the fastest and most complete recovery from a trifecta in history!
