A quick quick question

Post by michel » Wed, 25 Sep 2002 20:27:02



Hi

I'm a bad bunny mom. I was just t*** the nails on one of my rabbits
and I cut the quick. Poor little thing had been bleeding quite a bit
before I realized that she was bleeding :-( . I have the bleeding stop.
My question is is there anything else I need to do for her. Should I try
to cover/bandage it or put some antibiotic cream on it  so that it
doesn't get infected from the litter box or the hay? And is it okay that
she lost some *** :-( ? Should I give her something to help with that
like  a food high in iron? Thanks for all your help.

michele, i'm not an expert but i did this once to thumper and he was ok.
however, i knew it was bleeding immediately and put some of that powder on
it.  i'm sure your bun will be fine. just keep an eye on it.

Michele, if the bleeding has stopped, don't worry about it. Nothing special
you need to do. If it starts again, you should put some syptic powder on it,
or some cornstarch if you don't have any syptic stuff. Just watch it, it
clots quickly and two drops of *** can look like a gallon when you feel
guilty about it....no worries. Kelly

I did that, too, Michele, the other day.

Seems like it happens to every one of my bunnies at least once.

Pinky was best at guilt-tripping me.

She sat***ing her toe, and casting accusing glances over her shoulder.
Like, "How *could* you?"

Thanks Mixter

You were right, she rebounded much faster than I did. And she did except
all guilt offering that I sent her way. :-)

Thanks Kelly

When I came home for lunch to check on her it turned out that I actually
trimmed two of them to short, :-( how could that have happened??? I
guess that is why it looked like so much ***. I'm sure that it wasn't
enough to have any real impact, but I brought home some kale just in
case she needed a boost in iron. And it made me feel like I was doing
something to help her.

Well thank goodness that it's happened to you too. I was sure you were
going to call me a unfit mother. Poor little thing I clipped her nails
and then brought her into bed with me while i did my morning reading and
I looked down a little later and the pillow case had some big ole drops
of *** on it. Not a good start to the morning. She didn't even seem to
know she was bleeding. And after I plied her with banana we both seemed
to feel better.
