“Charlie”

My little Charlie had a rough bought of stasis last week. It lasted a few days, but he’s finally better now. I was so worried about him since I’ve never dealt with stasis that lasted more than a day, but my tough little guy pulled through. We kept him warm, gave the proper meds and eventually he started eating pellets again. That was the main thing he stopped eating. I’m used to stasis occurring when the rabbit stops eating completely, but Charlie was still eating some things so I was slower to diagnose it. On the plus side, I’ve gotten very good at taking rabbit temperatures now!

We halted bonding for a few days until Charlie recovered and Piper was a little aggressive when we resumed today and wanted to chase him. Maybe she was so eager to see him after not being able to for days? She scared him and he won’t groom her now. I’ll have to decrease their bigger bonding area and let them get to know one another again. Good thing it’s so snowy and cold outside so I’ve got extra time indoors to spend bonding.
