Peanut has her wings


I haven't kept up with posting on here as Peanut had been having health issues.  First she had elevated liver enzymes, then she had a rectal prolapse.  Plus she has had ongoing chronic sinus issues.  She had emergency surgery to repair the prolapse but the sutures prevented her from pooping so they were removed.  I was told if it returns she would probably have to be pts as the surgery didn't properly fix it the first time and that it would continue to return as there is damage to the tissues and muscles.

A rectal prolapse is extremely rare in bunnies, she had an ultrasound to see if we could find the cause.  They also wanted a look at her liver.  Unfortunately nothing was seen on the ultrasound, so nothing could be done.  She had another prolapse in the middle of September, I was sure she would have to be pts, but it corrected itself and I had a few more wonderful weeks with her.  

Sadly the prolapse returned last night with heavy bleeding.  So I had to take her to be pts.  Her mate Fuzz was with her and so far seems to be okay.  I'm worried about him.

She was such a special bunny and had been with me almost 7 years.  She was my first rescue bunny and was with me through thick and thin.  I miss her so much and there is a gaping hole in my heart.  

I don't think I'll be able to continue with this blog, but I hope to keep up with my other blog "The Bunny Slave"  Check it out for bunny updates.

Thank you
